Why FaceboxRender is not working?

I've installed FaceboxRender and JQuery and Facebox. Following the instrutions on http://github.com/ihower/facebox_render/

I've tried Facebox alone, in my rails app and it's working. After that I've put the folder facebox_render in vendor/plugins/facebox_render/, I added

include FaceboxRender

in /app/controllers/application.rb restarted my app, then wrote the link:

facebox_link_to "Whatever", :url => whatever_path

but nothing happen when I click.

Any idea?

Thank you


Have you included the facebox javascripts and css files in the head of your html layout?

<%= javascript_include_tag('jquery', 'facebox') %>
<%= stylesheet_link_tag('facebox') %>

Failing that, are you getting any javascript errors showing up in firebug?

Yes I've included them:

    <%= stylesheet_link_tag "application", "jquery-ui", "map", "facebox", "faceplant" %>
    <%= javascript_include_tag 'jquery', 'jquery.validate', 'facebox', 'application'  %>

and in application.js

jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
    loading_image : 'loading.gif',
    close_image   : 'closelabel.gif'

when I click on:

   facebox_link_to "test", :url => '/test/new'

this is what and Firebug's console reports:

$("a[rel*=facebox]").facebox is not a function

Make sure that you didn't linked JS file multiple times in your layout.
