there are 3 videos across the bottom of the page – I have put in the Fancybox anchor image to youtube video shortcode and updated appropriately, yet it acts like a direct link to the youtube page rather than displaying the video in a lightbox. On the “Case Studies” page
I tried to display a gallery of PDF files with PrettyPhoto, and rather than popping them up in a gallery it pops an empty lightbox up and attempts to directly download the PDF. The shortcode I used for each page is below – thanks for any help with this!
