    I've read through a lot of the questions here, and find a lot of people are having the problem I am - JotForm does not play well with Fancybox.  But each time someone gets a specific solution, cooked up by someone at JotForm, to remedy their problem only.  How about giving us instructions how we can make these things work together?

    Specifically:  I made a class enrollment form with JotForm that is on our class schedule page.  It seemed to work well, but when I went to make lightbox popups info for each of the class descriptions, either those don't work or I have to disable JotForm.  I understand (from my reading) that you use something different than jQuery, which is what Fancybox uses.  And I would prefer to use FancyBox for my course descriptions, because they aren't a "form."

    So if you have a workaround that we could ALL use, please post instructions somewhere obvious!

    I think the only solution is to use jQuery.noConflict. You will need to change your jquery code to not conflict with prototype:

    From what I've seen where others have asked similar questions, however, that often does not work. Why not?

    Maybe they do not follow the instructions provided there:

    Pat answer.  Not helpful at all - you are just repeating yourself.

    If you donot follow the instructions there it will not work. The instructions are confusing. So, it is a big possibility. 

    There is no solution other than that. You keep posting the same question, and we have to provide the same answer.
