I am trying to make a vimeo video play in overlay mode. The shortcode is inserted in a page (I would like to display a different video for each language). When clicking the video link, the video is opened directly in the vimeo-website instead of overlaying on the current website.
[wp_lightbox_prettyPhoto_anchor_text_video link=”http://vimeo.com/15449281″ width=”500″ height=”500″ text=”Click here to open the Vimeo video” description=”Video description goes here”]
I am using WPML multilangual plug-in also, already tried to disable this but still the samen issue.

There are two issues here:
1. You theme doesn’t seem to have the
2. Multiple copies of jQuery. Only one copy of jQuery can be included on the same page.
This is what’s happening on your page:
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.3/jquery.min.js"></script> (hardcoded)
Please take a look at the following post which will explain everything:

I just purchased the WP Lightbox Ultimate Plug-in about 4 days ago and have been unable to find the Short Code to get everything working properly. I started to list the issues I have been challenged with, but found it far to lengthy for a post. What I really need is help with the proper short code to do the following:
1) I want to use an anchor image to trigger my Vimeo video to play in a in a lightbox.
2) Is there a way to make the anchor image highlight when rolled over to indicate that it is a button function?
3) Is there a function that would put a border around my anchor image? Actually, the boarder could be something that highlights to indicate a “play” function. The mouse changing from an arrow to a hand is not real obvious.
4) When the video is displayed in the Lightbox I want to be able to use the Vimeo Player functions.
5) The Video Lightbox needs to be able to be re scaled without putting black space at the top and bottom of the video within the Lightbox.
6) I do not want the individual videos to have move left/right change buttons as if they are photographs.
I have reviewed the Setting Basic video only to find that my version has a lot more options that are not on the interface show on the video.
I have borrowed so many pieces of short code that appear to do what I need, but nothing seems to work completely. If someone could please share a short code that puts me on line, I would be in your debt along with many other that may also be out there looking for the same answer.
It may be that I need not only short code, but also the proper settings for WP Lightbox Ultimate.
I am working with WordPress V. 4.8.1, Beaverbuilder V. 1.10.7 and WP Lightbox Ultimate V. 2.2.8. There are no other plug-ins for FancyBox, videos or photo processing installed on my WP site.
Many thanks for your time and I anxiously look forward to a reply.

Hi, Here is the link to the main documentation page:
Unfortunately, we don’t have all these customizations you are looking for. We have three different shortcodes (prettyPhoto, Colorbox & fancybox) to open a vimeo video in lightbox. All of these shortcodes are listed in this doc:August 27, 2017 at 2:25 pm #52218tigervideoMember
OK, maybe borders are a little too much to ask for, but what about video frames that properly re scale to work within browsers that are not full screen or on phones?
Sad to say, but I was expecting so much more from the plug-in. I have worked with the sample codes given and they fall short of screen sizing and being responsive for a phone.
Within the first few line of the .pdf file it is stated “NOTE: You can also insert the shortcodes from the WordPress post or page editor by
clicking the WP Lightbox Ultimate shortcode inserter” and this inserter does not exist with in my WordPress interface.
In my many, many hours of trying to get the plug-in to function as I would like, I have actually found code that included some form of lightbox “ultimate” in it. Is there a reason that ultimate is not part of the coding when it was built Light Box Ultimate?
I am not sure just where to turn for answers and I question my investment into the plug-in. From my perspective, I invest in a plug-in because the provider has already worked out the bugs and that the functionality in using the product is so simple and clean that even an idiot like me can get things up and fluidly running with ease.
So far, the plug-in has not moved me any further forward than using the “free” plug-ins and finding free coding from the Internet. I am really interested to see if you have other suggestions/coding that might deal with my original requests and/or some type of coding to at least get the video frame to responsively re scale. I cannot be the only one who needs this information after making the investment into your plug-in.
Please, I need some help and it is your product I was expecting to my my life and website easy.
