  • I am having the same problem. No matter what I do, I can’t get the plugin to open the lightbox. It opens a new window and goes to YOuTube. I am totally out of ideas. I hope that somebody reads this and posts an answer cause I’m beat. 🙁

    Hey Moitten – I solved it. It was an interference with a constant contact plugin I had recently installed. If you’ve done that, deactivate the plugin, otherwise deactivate all plug-ins and turn them back on one by one until you find the unteam player. 🙂

    I narrowed my issue down to my theme. When I switched themes, it worked without issue, but when I use my theme, it links straight to Vimeo. Any suggestions on what in my theme could be causing this conflict? I completely removed the code from my css to see if that was causing the issue and it wasn’t. I disabled all of my plugins and it still wouldn’t work.

    This is the answer:

    Basically the theme isn’t calling wp_head in the header.php file. If this is added, the pluging works fine.

    I’m having the same issue and my theme is loading the wp_head.

    Here’s a link to the site I’m having a problem with:

    @a_r_baines, What HTML markup are you using?

    <a href=””
    rel=”wp-video-lightbox” title=”lifecare”><img src=””/>

    Hiya thanks for answering..its going straight to youtube…but there is the added fact that its being called from inside an image rotator widget. Maybe the rel tag needs a path or something…have u come accross this before…is the ultimate widget would that work do u think..


    ps…i do have the tag in.. 🙂

    [No bumping, thank you.]

    @a_r_baines, can I have a look at the page where you are having this issue?
