I have a form that launches in Thickbox. It validates in the thickbox window which I'm happy about. However, when I submit the form I would like the window to close and the parent window to redirect to a different thank you page. Currently, the "thank you" message appears in the lightbox.

My files are attached.

You can achieve that by making the form in the Thickbox iframe submit using the parent frame (i.e. the actual web page). Just add  target="_parent" to the <form> tag.
