    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


    sorry that should be http://www.luvhoodparis.com/news


    Hi luvhood,

    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


    Hi luvhood,

    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/




    It worked thanks!


    Glad we could help :)

    Let us know if you have any other questions or issues.
