Lightbox2 Template Package

For anyone who likes the Lightbox2 style of displaying images (see http://www.huddletogether.com/projects/lightbox2/ if you don't know what Lightbox is) - I've bundled all the files together in a webgui package, and included two templates to make it easier for you to use in WebGUI.

* Image Template:
  Just set your image objects to use the Lightbox template
  and any image objects added to a page will display this way.
* Collaboration System template:
  Replace the Default Submission template with Lightbox Submission
  and any Photo galleries will display as a Lightbox
  slideshow-style group.


An example test page showing this package is available at:

    http://juga.biz/home/test

This page displays two examples - one for an individual image asset, and the second for a photo gallery. 

For those who like this and want to be able to embed lightbox templated images in through the html editor like I do - please vote on my related RFE for enhancing inserted images.

Enjoy!

Right, what does this mean exactly.  I installed the package, but I am not quite able to figure out how to use this....

Any other suggestions.

I am using 7.4

If you've installed it, all you need to do is either create an image object or collaboration system and select the lightbox template for it.

By default the image object is hidden from the admin bar, but you can select it if you choose the admin view, or alternatively add an image using file pile.

It will not work with any image inserted in an article however, as webgui ignores it's template in that case.

I have it working!  Thanks.

Well sort of, it works with Firefox, but IE opens it like a normal link(then you need to go back a page), it does the same thing when I go to the webpage you linked to  for examples, so for the most part  I am thinking I have it working.  What do you know about IE, do I need to configure it somehow differently, I have Java installed and I have used it to open other java scripts.  

Please let me know if you have any insight on this matter.

Thanks,

It works fine in IE for me - so I suspect your IE simply has an old cached copy of the page or something like that.

Easiest way to determine this is see if the right code is being generated - view the page source in IE and see if the lightbox javascript code is being included properly.

I'd like to be able to do either one of 2 options.

1) Have the CS photogallery page show all the pictures in the gallery on the main page - rather than having to click on the link then click on a photo.

2) Be able to use the filepile method and have the option of slideshowing several slides.

Is this possible at all.  The use I would make of it is having say 3-5 pics on a site frontpage saying latest images, and it would be great if clicking on an image used the lightbox slideshow straight away.

Hello again, one more question,

do you know how to increase the size of the thumbnail for webgui?

Thanks

Found it, I changed the thumbnail size but nothing happened, but mousing over the thumbnail fieldname  I read the popup note that said the images needed to be resaved, did so, and voila!

Cheers
