[resolved] iframe form using Lightbox Plus ColorBox (2 posts)

    I came across your plugin.

    I have and external affiliate form that I want to get activated when a button is clicked.

    This click will then activate Lightbox Plus ColorBox to overlay the form on the current page.

    Here's what the owner of the aff program told me on how I should do it:

    Basically what needs to be done (in general) is to link to the form page on SafariNow.com. This can happen via iFrame, in this particular case a jQuery Lightbox was used to load our request a quote page in an iFrame.

    Here's what the code looks like for the link to the form - on a competitor's web page:

    <a href="http://www.safarinow.com/lib/hbef/buyer/enquiry.aspx?spid=161088&source=6428&noskin=1" class="iframe accomIframe btnRequestaquote requestaquote">Request a quote</a>

    Here's a link to where you can see the Request A Quote button.

    Can you give me some advice on if I can use your plugin for this?

    If I can I use your plugin with Lightbox Plus ColorBox?

    EDIT: I just read this while trying to figure out Lightbox Plus ColorBox:

    If checked, Lightbox Plus ColorBox will create a secondary lightbox with an additional set of controls. This secondary lightbox can be used to create inline or iFramed content using a class to specify the content. Default: Unchecked

    This looks like my solution. I will experiment.

    If you agree that this is my solution please indicate ;-)

    Have fun

    Hi I got a simple solution. The one above should work but I could not figure it out. The one that works like a dream with your plugin is the Form Lightbox
