When a user clicks on the "My Account" link I would like the user's profile to show up in a lightbox much like the admin menu overlay works.
I am using Drupal 7.
I am not sure how to do this. My first attempt was to render $user_profile and put it in a lightbox:
<div id="lightbox_this_div"> <?php print render($user_profile); ?> </div>
but $user_profile is not available in page.tpl.php
EDIT: To be clear I just want to lightbox the content of the user's profile along with the tabs and be able to style the page. So I am not looking to lightbox the entire /user page with the site headers in an iframe style.
