Can someone place a demo if it?

There may be a way to do this by adding a extra snippet of code to the source to allow a load event so that the page opens when a user visits the page but at present no it only works when a user clicks on a image or a text link as in previous version...

i have found that the link doesnt seem to work. the greybox opens but just goes into the "loading" state with the circular icon but the web page doesnt appear. checking the actual links, they seem to work fine without greybox but not with. Google doesnt work either.

is it something simple im not doing right?

Hi Nigel please check that you you have not ticked the checkbox in Tools>Options>Micellaneous>Preview>Disable IE security warning during preview having this ticked it seems to block the content in the greybox window...

Hi Nigel I can confirm it is a bug with "Google Chrome" the extension seems to work once uploaded to a server it just wont display in "Preview"
I have also checked it in FF, Safari, Opera, IE6/7/8 and it opens as it should in "Preview" so it seems it just "Google Chrome" being a pain in the a** I will rey and cotact the autor and see what hes says....

@ haamster here is the code you need to open in a window when user visits your page to insert this open Page Properties and place in Between <head></head> change the "Tiltle" and "url" to the same used in the extension properties...

Code: Select all

<script type="text/javascript">
AJS.AEV(window, 'load', function() {
          GB_showPage("Title", "url");

Hi BaconFries

Would it be possible to add the greybox display options into the extension or post the source so I could do it? I've been playing with extensions again and got my head back into gear after a long time away lol.

I prefer the "gb_page_fs" as it takes away the ugly top banner.

Well I've added the greybox options to one I have made but need to ask some advice questions.

On your extension baconfries, you see the image in the design screen. How do you do that?

How do you get the image to stay in the place you put it in the design window? Mine keeps going to the top left of the screen.....

Other than that, it works great lol
