I am trying to implement lightbox to RS, but it does not work.

jQuery('.royalSlider').magnificPopup({ delegate: 'img', type: 'image' });

In this case i have en error with message: "The image cant be loaded". And GET url with "undefined" (at console).
Tel me plz, what iam doing wrong.

    Magnific Popup can get URL from options objet, from href attribute of A tag, or from data-mfp-src attribute of any tag. Are you sure that the images in slider have data-mfp-src attribute?

    Well, it depends on type of slider and how you handle images.

    Example 1: click on <a> element in slide opens lightbox

    Simply modify markup of your slide or images to include data-mfp-src attribute, e.g.:

    <div class="rsContent">
        <a href="{{image_url}}" class="element-that-opens-lightbox">Open lightbox</a>
    jQuery('.royalSlider').magnificPopup({ delegate: '.element-that-opens-lightbox', type: 'image' });

    Example 2: click on any part of slide opens lightbox:

    Make sure that you add this code after the slider initialization (.royalSlider() call).

    var slider = $('.royalSlider').data('royalSlider');
    slider.ev.on('rsSlideClick', function(e) {
        // get URL of image for lightbox, 
        // slider.currSlide.content is a jQuery HTML element, you may use it to get some attrubute
        // but in this example we just use slider.currSlide.image, which is just URL to slider image
        var lightboxImageURL = slider.currSlide.image;
            items: {
                src: lightboxImageURL
            type: 'image'
        }, 0);

    Magnific Popup documentation -

    About where to put code in WP version -

    The above code opens only current image in lightbox, to open all images – generate items array from slider.slides array.
