Lightbox IFrame ***Removed 08/06/12***

Post by BaconFries » Wed Aug 04, 2010 11:02 pm

The extension has been removed due to non compatibilty with Google Chrome. Chrome has implemented a security measure to stop breaking out of a iframe and directly displaying the parent page from which the Lightbox in contained. I have tried to find a solution for this but each fix I come across doesnt seem to work, till I can find a fix that works I have decided that I should remove the extension, apoligises to all who have used the extension and found it useful your feedback and support was welcome.

Did you read the pdf this is a two part extension the part you are refering to doesnt have any options as it is just code...
This part lighboxjavascripts.wbx you just place on the same page as the iframe object it has no options as none are needed as it is just code..

This part lightboxiframe.wbx gets placed on a "New" page and then use the iframe properties Link to: use Internal Web Page>Page>Click 'Select' to choose a page>Select>yourpage.html

Here is a wbs demo that shows you what to do as explained in the pdf....

Well, I'm trying to get Lightbos iFrame to work, and I don't see any images. I've loaded them all in, I have the Lightbox JavaScripts on the page, I have left almost everything to their default settings, but I can't see anything when I preview. I haven't put it up on the server yet. I wanted to make certain I could get it to work first. I've read the PDF, but...I must be stoopid.

Quick question: Do all of the images have to link to an internal page, and if so: should it be the page I'm trying to put the gallery on, or the index.html page? I've tried both, but none of them are working. I've also tried it with no links.

I'd really love to use this as the whole site works in iFrame.

Thanks,

Len

UPDATE:::I AM stoopid! I had put the extension in first and added images BEFORE putting the LIghtbox Javascripts on the page. I've fixed it. Thanks anyway, Looks like a beautiful extension!!!

Hello BaconFries,

I posted something related to the extension here:
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=48170&p=242533#p242533

I asked if the extension works in Chrome and IE, as it is working fine for me in Firefox.

Thanks.

Morning supersonictt, ok I have tested the extension in FF, Safari, Opera, IE8 and they all display ok In Chrome it opens in a new window if you place in the iframe, which is starnge because if you use the lightbox without the iframe it opens as it should, I can only assume that it is a Chrome security issus that it doesnt like the lightbox being inside a iframe. I personalaly dont test in any other browser apart from the 5 mainFF, IE, opera, Safari and Chrome so cant offer advice on them. For IE9 I would suggest that you try using
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7"> as a workaround this may even work on Maxthgon as it is initially based on IE....I will take a closer look at Chrome as It was working it it before but as mentioned it may a security issue with Chrome.

Bacon, Super
I have used this extension with the ultimate page scroller within an Iframe and what I have found out is that on one of my sites hosted on godady the light box effect works and shows within the iframe in both chrome and IE9. I have a "test" site, hosted with a free account, have the same template and with chrome and IE9 the picture shows within the iframe but not with the darken background.
Could it have something to do with the hosting aswell as the browser?

@BaconFries
Thanks a lot for the reply.
Yes, the lighbox works in Chrome if it is used alone (not in iframe). And as you said that it worked before, it might be a security issue in the chrome latest version (or some latest updates).
The tip you provided for the IE9 works well, thanks a lot for that :)

@iamafireman
Could you please provide the link for what you mentioned? I am also using the Ultimate Scroller extension with lightnox iframe extension.

Thank you both for your input :)

Thanks for the link.
The lightbox is showing inside the iframe, what I actually want is that it shows outside the iframe :)

@ supersonictt It seems that what I have mentioned already about it being a security issue using Chrome is true,,,I search ogGoogle it seems that it is more than just the lightbox that is having issues it is iframes and there content in general that Chrome doent like to open...I will try and find a alternative script that will allow this be patient I am going to be taken a leave of absense from the form for a short period do to some health issues that need seeing to...I will be making a post regarding this in the form overthe next couple of days...
