With little bit of research, I finally solved the problem.

This is actually simple problem. What actually happened is that the jQuery installed on my blog is causing the error. To fix this, just add this code somewhere after the BODY tag:

<script src=’http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js’ type=’text/javascript’></script>

You can put this piece of code anywhere between the body content. For me, since I’m using WordPress Arclite theme, I just added the code to the footer using Arclite plugin setup.

[UPDATED 15 NOVEMBER 2009]
Wibiya team member just got back to me this morning and suggested me several solutions. This particular solution works the best for me, because it solves the jQuery conflict between Wibiya toolbar and Lightbox plugin, and it is specific to the WordPress theme that I’m using. Here’s the solution.

Apparently it has something to do with the WordPress themes that I’m using, which is Arclite. It’s jQuery javascript mess up the Wibiya Toolbar and Lightbox plugin. The solution here is to edit Arclite Javascript, that can be found at yourdomain.com/wp-content/themes/arclite/js/arclite.js.

Find this line: // fixes for IE-7 cleartype bug on fade in/out, and delete (or comment out) these three sections:

arclite-javascript

It should solve your problem, if you were having the same Wibiya toolbar problem like I had. Let me know if it works for you or not.

  • Hmm….it must mean that both jQuery conflict with each other, so you can only use one or the other.
