If you're using Fancybox with dynamic image URLs, you may find that the gallery/full screen pop-up is not working. Instead of the pop-up, when clicked, the source image is being loaded in the window as if Fancybox wasn't initialised. This is because Fancybox hasn't been able to determine the image type so doesn't know what to do. It's easily rectified.

For example, URLs like this will cause this issue to surface: http://<some_domain>/image.php?id=1234

To allow these types of URLs to work, simply add this parameter to your Fancybox initialisation:
 Option
type: 'image'


For example, this is what my Fancybox initialisation looks like:
 JavaScript
$('.fancybox').fancybox({
padding: 6,
nextClick: true,
helpers: {
overlay: {
locked: false
}
},
type: 'image'
});


That's all there is to it!
