The first box I tried was TinyBox which looks great, probably the slickest looking of the boxes but it had problems loading a php file in an iframe properly. You see I need it to load page.php?id=5555 where 5555 would go into certain areas of the page that get that url variable. It loaded all the code properly it just wouldnt’ execute the php within the page.
The second one I found was Thickbox which worked out well enough again,it looks slick, not as cool as TinyBox but still nifty however unfortunately we encounter the same problem. Php is loaded by not executed… Booooerns
The saying ‘third time’s the charm’ applies perfectly here because last but definitely not least I found GreyBox which is aptly titled: A pop-up window that doesn’t suck which turned out to be not just a euphamism but actually true because unlike the cool looking shitty boxes prior that wouldn’t execute my php Greybox worked like a bloody charm. Unfortunately it doesn’t quite look as cool however I was able to customize the close button and change that grey gradiant so it at least looks a bit better.
