I’m having trouble when linking to an external site. The URL is added correctly, but when you click it, it tries to open a light box for an image. see http://www.luvhoodparis.com/news#!prettyPhoto
try to add http:// on the link, try to change your link same with the one below:
Hope this helps.
nope. that link doesn’t work. it just keeps trying to open a small box and an error appears
Most media links are automatically wrapped in the prettyphoto code so they open in a lightbox. You need to modify the url in the Text tab of the visual editor like this:
<a class="noLightbox" href="http://www.youtube.com/">Youtube</a>
The key is the class of “noLightbox” to tell the function not to output the youtube link in a lightbox.
Alternatively, you can obfuscate your link using something like http://goo.gl/
