Hi. On my Spanish website http://iglesianuevopacto.yolasite.com... i have flickr lightbox photos. I've noticed that when i click on the photo the box appears but I'm not able to see the close button and the background behind the photo doesn't darken up everything stays litten up. I'm using internet explorer provided by yahoo with internet options all at default. When i use google chrome, my default web browser i can see the images perfectly with the background darken up and the flickr lightbox litten up. Are you able to see that the flickr lightbox lights up and the background darkens on your site in internet explorer and that the close button appears for it? If not what can I do to solve the problems so that people viewing my site with IE can view flickr lightbox the way is was intended to?

Hi Gerald,

I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing this issue. Can you please tell me which version of IE you are using?

I tested your site and the Flickr images using IE7 and was unable to replicate this issue. The background did darken and the image did lighten up. Here is a screenshot of what I see when I view your site using IE7 -
