    If tried adding a link to a YouTube channel through the Brightbox theme in a number of ways. Initially I planned to custom code it into the header like one of the grey icons you have there already (Twitter, Facebook, RSS). It all went fine except when I tried the link, it attempts to bring up a lightbox and says “Image cannot be loaded. Make sure the path is correct and image exist.”

    Then I just added the Social Media Widget plugin you can see in the footer now. Same issue exactly. Why does Brightbox think this link to youtube is an image? How do I fix it?

    Here’s the site so you can take a gander:

    Thanks for your help.



    You just need to add following class to your youtube link:


    This class will deactivate the lightbox effect for the particular youtube link.

    Best regards,



    Unfortunately that did not fix the problem. I tried to paste the code here, but it automatically edits out the class=”nolightbox”


    When I inspect element It has the class=”nolightbox” but also has the code rel=”lightbox[auto_group1]” Could this be the problem?

    Also, I don’t need lightbox at all on this site, so turning it off completely work for me too, if you could instruct me on how to do that.


    Update: I fixed the issue by completely removing the lightbox from the theme.


    Glad that you fixed the issue. For anyone else benefit – you can deactivate the lightbox by removing following code from js/avia.js:

    //activates the prettyphoto lightbox

    //activates the hover effect for image links
