What can we do to make it easier to design with Wild Apricot?

Lightbox functionality?

Has anyone implements lightbox functionality on a Wild Apricot website? Our existing AMS has a lightbox capability that I am "using" in our pages to pop a video. I don't need to do it exactly the same way, but when I try to use an embed code for a video into a Content or Custom HTML gadget, only a black box is shown. I can use a link href, but that pops a window or tab and I prefer not to do that.

I'm sure others have displayed videos. BTW, this is not Youtube, Vimeo, etc. The embed code uses wistia:

<iframe class="wistia_embed" name="wistia_embed" src="http://fast.wistia.net/embed/iframe/061831b7c6&quot; allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" width="480" height="298"></iframe>

Any suggestions, pointers, etc are much appreciated.

Thanks.

        Yes, a lightbox feature would be nice for any media on the website. Right now the galleries are limiting the maximum displayed size of media like pictures to the boundaries you did give the template.

        Solved my own problem. I don't have a lightbox, but I was able to get the iframe working as I would like. The issue was http vs. https.

        I still would be interested in any implementation of lightbox like functionality in Wild Apricot.

        Thanks.
