1) Script Title: Lightbox Image viewer

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/lightbox/index.htm

3) Describe problem: Hi, I tried to apply this to my website but it didn't work at all. I'm sure I have applied it to my HTML files correctly.
When I clicked the image it simply open the enlarged image in a new window like any other linked image.

Can someone please help me please?

So often folks are sure they've installed correctly when they haven't. Also, it could be a conflict with another script (if any) on your page. Or, some other aspect of your setup could be causing this. More than one problem may exist.

A link to your problem page is the best way to tell for sure. Any additional information you could provide about the problem may help as well.

Thanks for your response,
You can view it here:


(click on the last image at the bottom and it will just take you to another broswer, I expected the lightbox to work but it didn't).

FYI All the lightbox files are located in the root (main) directory.

Hope you can help, I am also willing to give you access to kindly repair it for me.

Thanks again,

There are a number of problems with your page as often happens when one mixes a WYSIWYG editor, third part scripts and perhaps editing with a text editor. Going into all of them is a bit beyond the scope of your question. The answer to your question is that there is a script conflict due to the body onload event. If it is changed to include the lightbox initialization command, the Lightbox script will work (addition red):
