3rd party light box extension not working


I’m trying to get this lightbox module (http://www.magentocommerce.com/magen…robox-etc.html) working with Siotis, but not having any luck. I just wanted to check here and see if anyone has any experience with this.

I’ve followed the extension’s install instructions, tried to check to jQuery conflicts, and copied the lightbox files to the Siotis dir as instructed but can’t get it going. This got me thinking maybe its something on the Siotis side. Any help would be appreciated!

Quick update, it seems changing the jQuery include script from head.phtml to media.phtml made this work (this is a setting native to the light box extension.) Is there something about Siotis that would prevent this from working if jQuery is loaded in the head.phtml file?

@ ninjaprecision,

There might be a conlict between jQuery’s extension and jQuery from the theme, I need to see the error message to tell you exactly what was wrong there, anyway I am glad to hear that you have it sorted out

I don’t think I was getting any error messages (or I just don’t know how to see them) but the weird thing is that if I disable loading of jQuery through the light box module it stops working.
