Hi, having some JS problems. I want to use LightBox2 on a projekt. The projekt has a custom form on all pages.
The validator of the form loads jsparty/prototype.js and that seems to conflict with lightbox/js/prototype.js or atleast if i don't output the form (deleting my $ContactForm from the template) all is fine and lightbox works.

Can anyone tell me how to have both a form and a lightbox on same page?

I have found a way to get lightbox working, by disabling JS validation for my ContactForm, but ofc. I will now have to find another solution for frontside validation.

i have noticed the same problem.
the ss2.3 brunches using the Jquery 1.26. which was kinda old, as well as the validation plug-in.
Not sure which version of Jquery of your lightbox2 will be using.
If it's over 1.2.6. You probably could update the Jquery validate plug-in. update it to be compatiable with Jquery 1.3.2 then update your core Jquery.js file to be Jquery-1.3.2.js .

You can have a try, see it works or not.. XD

Hi ALex,

Thanks for your reply, i will have a look at this.
I properly wont get around to it one of the first days though, but would be nice to know for future projects.
