PLEASE HELP With ThickBox and IE
I managed to add ThickBox 3.1 as a pop up window
for all the READ MORE links on our web
They work fine in Firefox, safari, GoogleChrome but they do NOT OPEN in IE 7 nor 8 unless one reloads the page were the link is.
I just followed the instructions here:
I have tried to get help from the author of this post , of the people I bought the template from and even from Experts that charge you a fee ... but have not gotten and answer or the answer was negative.
COULD SOME ONE HERE HELP ME WITH THIS ISSUE ?
I would really appreciate it.
I use the jQuery old version 1.2 as suggested in the tutorial ... did try with a newer version but the Thickbox did not work.
Following the tutorial, this is the the code I placed on the HTML document:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="popup/js/thickbox.css" type="text/css" media="screen" />
<li> <img src="images/gallery-7.png" alt="" /> <strong> <b>7 / 8</b> </strong>
<div> <em>Fall in love with</em>
<p>... your findings, your travel experience, and <span class="style11">Iberia</span>.</p>
<br /><br /><br /><br /><i> <a href="popup/w-MORE.html?height=405&width=680" class="thickbox">More</a></i></div>
If I am placing this in the wrong place, can some one please tell me were I can get some help. I will be glad to pay some sort of fee or donation. Thank you for your help
Not sure what the problem is but personally i would not use thickbox... imho a much better version is http://fancybox.net/
Thank you for your answer
fancybox is good for image galleries ... i am using thickbox for just popup windows with texts and small images
it can be used for many things, not just images
"Can display images, HTML elements, SWF movies, Iframes and also Ajax requests"
e.g. checkout http://fancybox.net/blog example no5 i.e. the form
Thank you for the link ... your are right.
If i can not get this issue resolved I will try fancybox.
I already have about 16 popup windows made with thickbox
and it does work fine in firefox, safari, GoogleChrome ... just has problems with IE7 and 8 ... only shows on reloading page with link to popup window.
Devastated73 do you know if light box works in IE and with ipad and mobile phones?.
Did you ever find a solution to the thickbox issue? WordPress uses the code in the admin panel (Plug-In descriptions, etc) and it presumably works in all browsers, but I'm also having difficulties in IE 7 & 8 (I am told that it is working successfully in IE9 - way to go Microsoft).
