How to open a submit button which is in fancybox in the parent window?

  • # April 26, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    Hi, I have a login form displaying in a fancybox window. It has a username and password fields and a login button. Upon successful login, I want the fancybox window to close and the user to be redirected to the user area in the parent window. At the moment it all works fine, however the user area page gets displayed in the fancybox window and like I mentioned above, I want it to be displayed in the parent window. Exactly like the login process on the csstricks website.
