View Full Version : Lytebox iFrame problem

05-09-2011, 01:22 PM
hi guys,

i have a little problem with the lytebox working properly on my site.

my link is inside an iframe and i want it to open a lytebox on top.

here is the site im talking about: http://whalewatchingsydney.com.au/index.php/whale-sightings (click on: view 2010 sightings on rhe right of the blue bar, then click on an image ( view image )

as you can see it opens a ?blank page and not a lytebox.

on the page i have the lytebox working here >> http://whalewatchingsydney.com.au/index.php/trips-and-rates ( click on one of the little thumbnails halfway down the page )

i also did a test environment without the whole joomla page around it and it works, see here >> http://whalewatchingsydney.com.au/test_sightings.html

now im loading the java script in the iframe AND in the the mainframe, the css is only loaded in the mainframe. i did remove the js from the mainframe to see if that makes any difference, but it still doesnt work.. so something strange is going on here and i hope someone knows more than me =)

Hi there, did you ever figure out why you were having this problem? Good luck!

There's no blue bar that I can see with 2010 sitings. There's an orange one with 2012 sitings and that one seems to work just fine.

There is no 2010 untill you click on where the 2012 was(twice brings you to 2010)- This is odd and will not help things

I use Firefox v20.0.1 and it worked fine except that the image was slow loading but it did

The other two links:

Did not work and gave -404 - Component not found error

Acutally John was/is right.-there was no blue bar on the right as this shows.


But it does show the link "view 2012 sightings" -that changes when you click on it to "view 2011 sightings" with the 2012 listings.It will then change to 2010 when that 2011 link is clicked.

There both images worked fine when I clicked on the image link(just a bit slow loading.

That bar is not blue. Other than that, it works fine. The delay is the time it takes for the larger image to load. After a given larger image is loaded, there will be little or no delay in viewing it a second time. This is an old thread, so obviously he's fixed it since then. Back then 2010 was the most recent year of sightings, now it's 2012. The two broken links were probably to real pages when the thread was originally opened.

In light of all that, I'm closing this thread.

If anyone wants help with this script, please open a new thread.
