Thank you for visiting the Shadowbox forum! This is a great place to learn about Shadowbox and get help with your specific implementation. In order to get help from the members of this forum, you need to help them help you. Do not immediately assume that because Shadowbox is not working on your site that there's a bug somewhere in the code! It has been thoroughly tested in a variety of situations on all major browsers, so the problem probably lies somewhere in your implementation.
Below are a few tips to help you get the most out of your time on this forum:
If your request deals with your specific implementation, be prepared with a sample page! A live site will make it a lot easier for whoever is helping you
Make sure your web page is using either a transitional or strict HTML doctype as explained on the support page
If you are looking for a specific option that you'd like to use and would like to make a feature request, be sure to check the list of already available options first
Please search the forum! A lot of the same questions get asked over and over again, and you'll have better success getting a response if your question hasn't already been answered
If you want to post your HTML code to this forum, you need to escape it properly so that it is actually interpreted as plain text instead of HTML. To do this, use the <character entity to start an HTML tag instead of the usual <. For example, if I wanted to display the following link in my post
