Fancybox appears on successful form submit

Posted on 2013-06-24
Last Modified: 2013-07-11
I have a form on my website which if all the correct fields are filled out and the credit card type is selected should open up a fancybox, but for some reason it's not working.

My site is here -

This is my form validation script:

		errorLabelContainer: $(".errors"),
		rules: {
			totalSum: {
				required: true,
				min: 1,
				number: true
		invalidHandler: function(form, validator){ 
		$.scrollTo( '#form1', "slow");
	  submitHandler: function(form) {
		  if ($("#credit").attr("checked")) {
			var tot = $("#totalSum").val();
			var charge = ((tot / 100) * 2.75).toFixed(2);
			$(".cc-tot").html('£' + (+tot + +charge));
				closeClick  : false,
				helpers     : { 
				overlay		: {closeClick: false}
		  } else {

Open in new window

Can anyone please help?

Either use e.preventDefault() at the beginning or use return false at the end, in your validate function.

e.preventDefault() submits the form without the fancybox and return false appears to do nothing.

Your fancybox is just?
<a id="trigger" href="#cc-warning"></a>

I'm not familiar with appending a trigger to the fancybox, normal usage is just
            // effects etc

Yes, it basically just fires a trigger to open it automatically.

You seem to have some conflicts with scripts.js and jquery.validate.js and fancybox.
Trying to find it now.

In scripts.js you have

frmreg doesn't exist - this breaks the js

I've taken that line out and it's still the same?

It works fine for me - I get the fancybox.
