    Ok, so please bear with me; my knowledge of all the gears and cranks behind displaying webpages is very limited, but I'll try to make this as clear as possible from what I know.

    I created a website in Photoshop, sliced it up and used iWeb to generate the HTML code for me. I published the site to a folder, and then proceeded to edit the HTML so that I could incorporate Lytebox, via these instructions. Once everything was done I uploaded the folder to the Web -->Sites folder on MobileMe's iDisk. Now, when I browse to my MobileMe-hosted webpage everything works fantastically and I'm happy.

    Then I used GoDaddy to forward my personal domain URL to the one, and mask it. It worked just fine, EXCEPT that Lytebox no longer works. Images that I click on just open in new tabs, rather than a lightbox-style frame within the current window.

    For some reason that I can't figure out, Lytebox will work when I navigate to the site through, but not when I navigate to the site through, which is just URL that forwards and masks the former one.

    I'd really appreciate your help, since I'm at a loss as to what I can do to fix it. Thanks!

    EDIT: So I turned off the masking of my personal domain and it appears that was the cause of Lytebox not working correctly. So the new question is this: anybody know how I can get masking to work so that the long ( URL isn't displayed? Or alternatively, what the cause of Lytebox not working when URL masked is, and how to rectify it in the HTML code?

    Again, thanks a lot for any help!
