I have gallery module installed from ( On one of pages where gallery module is loaded to show a slideshow, i am trying to integrate Fancybox to load a video similar to this ( site. Problem? If i uncomment the jquery CDN reference e.g.

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

which is required for fancybox, Gallery module stops working. If i comment it out, fancybox doesn't work.

So question:
a- Is there a way i can use Gallery's Lightbox to display a video like its show on that site?
b- Else how would i remove this clash?

Don't use script tags.
jQuery is being redeclared at the base of your page, and/or conflicting with prototype.

<% require javascript(sapphire/thirdparty/jquery/jquery.js) %>
<% require javascript(path/to/fancybox.js) %>
<% require javascript(path/to/fancybox-init-with-jQuery.noConflict.js) %>

I am surprised you managed to get that module working though, it hasn't been updated in nearly a year, and last I checked isn't compatible with the more recent versions of SilverStripe.
Are you using an old version of SilverStripe?
If so, you'll need to use Require::javascript(); from your controller.

tried it using:
<% require javascript( %>
<% require javascript(mysite/javascript/fancybox/jquery.easing-1.3.pack.js) %>
<% require javascript(mysite/javascript/fancybox/jquery.fancybox-1.3.4.js) %>
<% require css(mysite/javascript/fancybox/jquery.fancybox-1.3.4.css) %>

a. Neither fancybox, nor gallery work.
b. "require"d js libs are put at the end of generated page.
c. I can't find the "require"d css anywhere in the generated page.
d. Fancybox doesn't work with the jquery that comes with sapphire/thirdparty/

Also, the page already contains:

<script type="text/javascript" src="themes/cardplug/js/jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="themes/cardplug/js/jquery.img.preload.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="themes/cardplug/js/jquery.innerfade.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="themes/cardplug/js/jquery.lightbox.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="themes/cardplug/js/jquery.pngfix.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="themes/cardplug/js/jquery.tipsy.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="themes/cardplug/js/custom.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="themes/cardplug/js/twitter/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="themes/cardplug/js/twitter/jquery.twitter-friends-1.0.min.js"></script>

Its template was designed by another fellow, so can't comment anything about it.

And its SS 2.4.0.

Have you tried to use Jquery.Noconflict? I've disable prototype with Requirements::block('jsparty/prototype.js');

I don't think that i am using prototype at all, it doesn't appear anywhere on the generated html.
Ok, here are the updates:

Page which i am trying to get fancybox working on:

Video popup should appear when you click "watch 90 second video".

Related files in source are:
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="mysite/javascript/fancybox/jquery.easing-1.3.pack.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="mysite/javascript/fancybox/jquery.fancybox-1.3.4.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="mysite/javascript/fancybox/effect.fancybox.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="" />

effect.fancybox.js contains the code to make it popup, this code is almost a plain copy paste from:

now everything is working but for some reason it won't popup the video, e.g. fancybox is not loading.

There is a tipsy error, we can safely ignore that for now.

Its not issue of jquery clash, i have fixed that, fancybox isn't loaded the effects.fancybox.js at all, even an alert("hello") on top level doesn't appear when page is loaded.
