#46332 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

No way to close an image opened from a blog post

Using WordPress 5.1 (and theme Twenty Ten).

When clicking on an image in a blog post, the image is shown without an (x) button, does not respond to [esc] or clicking/double clicking in or beside the image to close it. The only way I can close is using tne "back" button in my web browser (FF). My images use link to "media file", not to "attachments page" or whatever you call that option in English.

Hello and elcome to Trac, Rolf.

This seems to be the expected behavior in Twenty Ten. When the click is not intercepted by a script (ex. lightbox) the browser navigates to the bare image file url.

I updated Twenty Ten to latest version today, and I'm quite sure that images had a way of closing before that. Am I wrong about that?

  • Component changed from General to Bundled Theme
  • Keywords close removed
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

Sorry. Just tested with a fresh installation.

When you open the file link you actually leave WordPress. A lightbox, or similar, plugin, or a theme equipped with such, will intercept it and open a box with the image resized to the screen size and a close button.

Please try support https://wordpress.org/support/ if you need help with your site.
