  • Resolved brookebot


    First off, excellent plugin! I am very appreciative of your work!
    My Issues: When I view the post and click the play button, the video refuses to pop up in FancyBox no matter what the settings are.
    Now that WordPress allows me to paste the YouTube video URL directly into the visual editor, that is what I teach my clients to do. It’s so easy for them to understand. I dread teaching them to add tags, classes, and thumbnails in order for the video to pop up in FancyBox. Am I misunderstanding this plugin’s functionality? Will this plugin work with plain URLs without tags & without thumbnails?

    Pasting the video URL directly into a post will trigger WordPress to replace that by the default embed code. This has nothing to do with Easy FancyBox.

    If you want to open a video in FancyBox, you’ll have to work with a LINK to a youtube page, not just the URL.

    Your clients know how to create links I suppose? Then that is all it takes. It can be a text link, a linked thumbnail or even a menu item, that does not matter.
