Support » Plugin: Easy FancyBox » YouTube and Vimeo links not preventing new window

  • Resolved leggo-my-eggo


    Take a look here: and click the “Vimeo Test Link”.

    For some reason, although a Fancybox iframe popup is opened, and works, the link also opens a new Vimeo window with the link.

    Same thing happens with YouTube. This was working until recently. I’m using 1.5.0dev11

    Any clue what’s going on? Chrome is also throwing an error:

    Unsafe JavaScript attempt to access frame with URL from frame with URL Domains, protocols and ports must match.

    Which it attributes to swfobject.js, which is only loading inside the vimeo iframe.

    How did you resolve the issue? Others might benefit from your experience 🙂

    @ravanh, I didn’t post it because I didn’t think it would be relevant to anyone else (and because it’s a little embarrassing). I had, a few days ago, added a script to open all offsite links in a new window and forgotten about it.

    So, I made that script aware of the fancybox links and now all is well.


    I should actually add that the error is still, in fact, thrown. It shown up in the Chrome Developer’s Console. It just doesn’t seem to affect anything.
