  • Resolved pixelsonic


    thanks for this wonderful and free plugin! It´s really great.

    I´m trying to get a button with short code to open a video, but I don´t know how to combine both. Here are both separated:

    [button type=”pointer” rel=”wp-video-lightbox” link=””]Video Demonstration[/button]

    [video_lightbox_youtube video_id=_avFDsrn3qc width=900 height=560 anchor=”>> Video Demonstration”]

    Any help on how this can be combined ?

    Yes, I want to click a js button on the site and have the lightbox pop up as it usually does. As a work-around I created a .png of the button and put image path as the anchor, but the jpg has no behavior like the rest of the buttons on the site, and, its just not the right way to do it.

    Here’s the site: scroll past the first text section to the centered orange button that says “Watch The Interview With Steven Rosen”. That is temporarily a .png, I want it to be a js button like the rest of the buttons on the site.


    Sorry, here’s the site:

    Btw, here’s the shortcode for the button:

    [button color="A#f6653c" size="small" url="" text="Watch The Interview By Steven Rosen"]

    Hi, currently the plugin only works with a link (<a href="...">..</a>) pointing to a media file (e.g. image, video). I don’t think it’s possible to get it to work with a button element.

    Alternatively you can use an image that looks just like your button.

    OK, thank you.
