Hello. I have been having the same issue for days now and it appears that a lot of people are. Is there any help? I find that when I use the old version of jQuery, i.e.3.1.1 the lightbox works albeit without the controls, but at least one can zoom the images, however 3.1.1 disables all other css features. To my novice eyes, I'd say that your Lightbox needs to be updated to work with the latest jQuery version. Can you please give an idea of when this could be done. My code is a literal copy and paste of the MDB Pro code.

Hi there everyone,

As for MDB Lightbox, it's designed to work with the newest installment of jQuery - 3.2.1. For experience I know that using MDB Lightbox can be tricky for at least several reasons. Firstly, it requires initializing with load jQ method. Secondly, copy-pasting the example from our documentation may often not be sufficient, as it assumes the path to mdb-addons directory, which can be located somewhere else in your project. Lastly, at least in Chrome it cannot be served straight from the file-system because of the cross-reference request for a .html file, therefore necessitating some kind of a server mocking utility (for example Live Reload in VS Studio Code. In case the issue requires further assistance, please provide your code and the potential error-logging output from the Developer Tools console.
