Lightbox With Iframes

I needed a version of Lightbox that handled real web page urls instead of just images, so I hacked it myself. I looked into using Lightbox Gone Wild, but it seemed a misnomer; it’s more like a stripped down version of Lightbox. I like the effects and transitions of Lightbox, so I figured why not start there?I’d love to show you an example, but I don’t have a host for it right now. Just imagine Lightbox that’s capable of showing any URL you throw at it.
  1. Download the original.
  2. Replace lightbox.js with my version here.
