Disable the Lightbox Scripts

This is a Developer Level doc.

If you're unfamiliar with PHP and/or editing files, codes and templates, as well as with resolving possible conflict, please seek help from a professional. Under our Support Policy, we don't provide support for modifications and customization.

Important: The code below will only function with OceanWP version 2.1.1 and lower.

You can easily disable the Lightbox scripts via Theme Panel > Scripts & Styles. If, for some reason, this option doesn't function for you, you can disable Lightbox scripts using the following PHP snippet:

 * Disable the Lightbox scripts
function my_enqueue_scripts() {

	// Unregister JS files
	wp_deregister_script( 'magnific-popup' );
	wp_deregister_script( 'oceanwp-lightbox' );

	// Unregister CSS file
	wp_deregister_style( 'magnific-popup' );

add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_enqueue_scripts', 99 );

 * Add the no-lightbox class in the body tag
function my_body_classes( $classes ) {

	$classes[] = 'no-lightbox';

	// Return classes
	return $classes;
add_filter( 'body_class', 'my_body_classes' );

All PHP snippets should be added via a child theme's functions.php file.
