Open Lightbox Programmatically


I have a lightbox on the home page with a YouTube trailer embedded. There’s a lightbox link on the page however I also want the ability to have a link that automatically opens the lightbox

For example: Example Domain

My custom code checks if the play=trailer query exists in the URL and if so, jQuery triggers a click event on the lightbox link, however the lightbox doesn’t open.

I’ve searched the forums but can’t find a solution so any help is appreciated.
