TopUp Plus (en)

This site is also available in german!

TopUp Plus is a wordpress plug-in which integrates TopUp into your wordpress blog and automatically changes all image links, so the images will open with TopUp. It is also possible to show videos from YouTube, Blip.TV and Vimeo with TopUp.


  • Copy the topup-plus directory to the wordpress plug-in directory under /wp-content/
  • Activate the plug-in in the plug-in menu
  • That’s it!

Embed Images

  • Choose an image of your choice, as you have done it in wordpress many times
  • Create a link with this image to a bigger version of this image
  • All the rest is done from lightview-plus automatically

Embed Videos

  • Click the new button „Embed Video“ Video hinzufügen
  • In the pop-up choose the portal you want to use (at the moment only YouTube and Vimeo. More in one of the next version).
  • Insert the video id
  • Choose, if you want a link text under the video
  • Enter the link text
  • Click INSERT

Find out the Video ID

The highlighted part is the video id!

  • YouTube:
  • Vimeo:
  • Blip.TV:


You can find examples on the TopUp site.


Nothing is opened with TopUp?
In you theme the <?php wp_head(); ?> is missing. Please, add it.

I added images to my text, but they are not clickable and they are not shown with lightview.
You have to create a link to the image. E. g. create a link from the image to the same image or a bigger one.

Is there a version of TopUp for prototype?
YES! You can use Lightview Plus. It has the same functions as TopUp Plus!

TopUp does not work in browser xy on OS yz. / How do I change the display of TopUp?
I haven’t wrote the TopUp javascript code. Please, ask the author of TopUp.


You can find the actuale version at

  1. I think the close button graphic is not in the plugin directory under images/topup_plus or the css files links to a wrong path.

    Did you changed anything in the plugin directory? And what style in the topup plus option menu have you choosed?

  2. I guess I just won’t be able to use your plugin then.… A friend of mine installed it and everything worked the first time. Thanks for your help, though, I really appreciate it.

  3. I found the culprit, it was another plugin: Customizable Permalinks. I deactivated it and your plugin is working fine. Don’t know what to do about the CP plugin now. Guess I’ll play around with that a little.

  4. I contacted my host, downloaded Filezilla, changed permission to 777 but it still didn’t work. I gave permission to the entire Topup file, should I have only done this to the close button?

  5. Hello, i have small issue with this plugin… Why are images opened by topup also when you right click on image? it is annoying, because right click has to be „used“ for another actions, such as save image, or others… So, is there any possibility to disable image opening while right clicked?

    On the other way, because i cannot use lightview and dont like to pay floatbox, is this plugin very nice!

    Thanks for response

    you wrote, you found the problem and it was the permanent plugin?

    I’m not the author of the javascript. Please, contact the author here:

  7. Yes, it seemed to be Permalinks plugin. Once, disabled, your plugin worked fine. Of course, I can’t disable permalinks so I had to disable your plugin.

    • Your permanent link plugin is misconfigured. I think you check your configuration or ask the author of this plugin. You will run into other problems with other plugins with it.

  8. Open topup-plus.php and have a look at line 87. There you can edit it, to get you thing done. Maybe you only have to remove the br > at the end.

  9. Yeah, I looked at that line but I can’t seem to get it to work. I tried to remove the at the end but it didn’t work. Do you have any other ideas of what I should edit?

  10. Works perfectly but usually locks up at the „insert gallery“ stage 🙁 Just need to reload and reinsert [gallery] if it’s not already saved in draft.
