Hello,

I have a select menu and based off the selection I'm dynamically creating a link on the page for the PrettyPhoto modal window to appear but it doesn't seem to be working. I placed a static link on the page and it works fine. I believe it's because the page loads and the pretty photo script can't recognize dynamically created links.

You could put this in your Javascript function right after creating the dynamic link

      $("#myURL a[rel^='prettyPhoto']").prettyPhoto({theme:'facebook'});

That works if I make the right selection the first time. If I close the modal window and try selecting another selection from the menu it does the same thing before. I'm playing around with it right now but if you know why it wouldn't work after making another selection then please let me know. I'm obviously a beginner here at JQuery.

Thanks,

Brian
