#37710 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Allow fullscreen for ThickBox

I use ThickBox to display YouTube and Flickr videos in an overlay. - Though, YouTube and Flickr both support fullscreen display, the necessary attribute is not set in ThickBox's iframe implementation.

Attached patch - which should not have any adverse effects - fixes this.

Hi @neoxx,

Thanks for this suggestion. My apologies that it took so long to receive a response.

The Thickbox library is quite old and unmaintained. I don't think this is something that should be added to WordPress Core. In fact, removing Thickbox from Core has come up in several discussions over the last year. I have created #46985 so that discussion can take place.

With those things in mind, I am going to close this out as a wontfix, but if there is more demand for this feature this can be reopened and re-evaluated.
