HFOSS Bugfix Assignment

One of my assignments for HFOSS was to submit a bugfix for an open source project. Fancybox is one of the most popular jQuery lightbox plugins, and while I was beginning to integrate it into my portfolio site, I noticed an issue. On the plugin’s documentation website, two of the flickr photos shown in the gallery were broken. While I couldn’t fix this myself because it wasn’t part of the plugin code, I was able to submit an issue and it was corrected very quickly.
