    If you use the following without a hook:

    add_thickbox();

    You will see the following PHP warning if debug mode is on:

    Notice: wp_enqueue_script was called incorrectly. Scripts and styles should not be registered or enqueued until the wp_enqueue_scripts, admin_enqueue_scripts, or login_enqueue_scripts hooks. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

    Notice: wp_enqueue_style was called incorrectly. Scripts and styles should not be registered or enqueued until the wp_enqueue_scripts, admin_enqueue_scripts, or login_enqueue_scripts hooks. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

    To prevent this issue when calling the method, use one of the three hooks mentioned in the error as so:

    function fnctn_add_thickbox () {
        add_thickbox();
    }
    add_action ( 'wp_enqueue_scripts','fnctn_add_thickbox' );
