I have code below to open Fancybox For Wordpress on page load and it's loading but the div cannot display content - just says "The requested content cannot be loaded.
Please try again later." My code (which I'm putting all in the page template) is:
<div id="newsregwrapper">
<div id="newsreg">
...content...
</div>
</div>
<script type="text/javascript">
       var $j = jQuery.noConflict();
$j(document).ready(function() {
$j("#newsreg").fancybox().trigger("click");
}); </script>

I know the quirk of FB for WP is you have to surround the targeted div in a wrapper (in this case newsregwrapper) but not sure you need it for this method (only from a link?).

So do I need the wrapper and what is the correct code please...thanks.

Hi... I'm don't use WordPress, but I have an example of opening FancyBox on page load at http://jsfiddle.net/webdevem/5EV8r/.  What it does is I have a hidden link which is set up to call the FB, then simulate a click at page load time.  I think to merge this with your code would be something along these lines:
<a class="fancyTrigger" href="#newsreg">
<div id="newsregwrapper">
<div id="newsreg">
...content...
</div>
</div>
<script type="text/javascript">
       var $j = jQuery.noConflict();
$j(document).ready(function() {
    j(".fancyTrigger").fancybox();
    j(".fancyTrigger").trigger('click');
}); </script>

Open in new window

I hope this at least gets you on the right track, since I don't know the WordPress part of it.
