I followed instructions from shadowbox-js and I can't seem to load the image. It's stuck at loading. Code as below. Help?


<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="shadowbox.css">
<script type="text/javascript" src="shadowbox.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
Shadowbox.init({
    skipSetup: true,
    players: ["img"]
});

window.onload = function() {

    // open a welcome message as soon as the window loads
    Shadowbox.open({
        content:    '<img src="images/GangNamStyle.jpg" alt="GangNam" />',
        player:     "img",
        title:      "Gangnam Style",
        height:     320,
        width:      320
    });

};
</script>

Try changing your player to html
<script type="text/javascript">
Shadowbox.init({
    skipSetup: true
});

window.onload = function() {

    // open a welcome message as soon as the window loads
    Shadowbox.open({
        content:    '<img src="images/a5.jpg" alt="GangNam" />',
        player:     "html",
        title:      "Gangnam Style",
        height:     320,
        width:      320
    });

};
</script>

Open in new window

Or change your content to just be the path of the image
<script type="text/javascript">
Shadowbox.init({
    skipSetup: true
});

window.onload = function() {

    // open a welcome message as soon as the window loads
    Shadowbox.open({
        content:    'images/a5.jpg',
        player:     "img",
        title:      "Gangnam Style",
        height:     320,
        width:      320
    });

};
</script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="//cdn.jsdelivr.net/shadowbox/3.0.3/shadowbox.js"></script>
