Do you put a link with the image? I don’t see the image here but suspect it is a YouTube icon of some sort.
What process are you using to put in the image?
Oh sorry… the source-code is not showing here…. please look at this Screenshot:
Well it doesn’t tell where to find the video. It just takes you to Youtube.
I don’t know if this is what you are trying to do or not but look at this little test page I created. Maybe this will help.
when you are on your page editing, go above the formatting bar. Click on UPLOAD/INSERT. Insert your image. Highlight it and then click on the link button. Paste in the link to you youtube video. Open in a new window.
You can also make the link have the noLightbox class which will disable the lightbox from trying to grabe and display the youtube link. Ex:
<a class="noLightbox" href="http://www.youtube.com/user/yourchannel"><img class="alignnone" title="Youtube" src="http://.....youtubeicon.png" alt="" width="80" height="80" /></a>
So from the visual editor, you’ll insert your youtube icon and then switch over to HTML view (the tab at the top) and add the class=”noLightbox” to the link.
