Ok, so there is no way (that I can figure out) under the current PlatformPro architecture for boxes and soapboxes to spawn a lightbox for a Vimeo player. Adding the shortcode in the composition window just spits the text back at you. Adding the usable portion of the iFrame code (i.e. just the URL) to the allowable 'clickable link' feature does successfully call the video, but it opens full screen as a new page. No lightbox, no ability to define parameters like size. You have to hit the back button to get out of it. To be clear - the shortcode and the iframe code work fine in a normal blog post scenario, but not in the special post types. My goal of a captioned thumbnail gallery (that opens offsite videos in a lightbox) can't be done with Platform Pro boxes as far as I can tell. Please make me feel foolish and point out what I'm missing!
