View Full Version : Would I be able to use photopost in an iframe?

Would the lightbox work with the entire page, or just within the iframe? Could it be made to work with the entire page if the photopost app was contained in an iframe?

Photopost works within an iframe. As far as lightbox thats a java script that loads a popup window which is independent of any frames.

That doesn't answer the question, but nevermind.
The correct answer is NO.... the lightbox does not work with the entire page... it only works within the iframe. Yes the window still pops up but only the background of the iframe dims, not the entire page.

How does it not answer the question? I have seen photopost in an iframe.

The question was: :
"Would the lightbox work with the entire page, or just within the iframe?"

BTW.. I already own photopost. I just didn't feel like paying to ask this question in a support forum.

Lightbox is not in a frame. Thats a java popup window and pops up in front of everything.

I have a new application for photopost on a different site, but I would need to place the photo gallery in an iframe on a parent page. Clearly that does not produce the desired result when using lightbox integration.
I did some more digging and I found lytebox, which addresses this very problem. Lytebox - Home (http://www.dolem.com/lytebox/)
Here's what they say about lytebox on that page:
iFrames: If you plan to use Lytebox in an iFrame environment, then you need to include lytebox.css in the parent document, while including lytebox.js in the iFrame document.
Before I bought a second photopost license, I was just hoping to get some insight as to whether or not photopost using the lightbox integration, could be made to behave properly.

Chuck, I just broke down and renewed my member access for Photopost Support. You can move this thread to a more appropriate forum if you like and I'll catch up with it once the renewal kicks in.
Wow.... this turned into a $40 question :) I'm at 6.02 so I needed to upgrade anyway.

You can try similarly what they suggest. For support on lightbox you can visit this page about there scripting. Yes you would want to upgrade if your at 6.02 ;)

On another note, how long should it take for me to show up as a verified member?
