View Full Version : Lightbox

08-03-2007, 06:12 PM
1) Script Title: LightboxV 2.03

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/lightbox2/index.htm

3) Describe problem:

I have used the script in Dreamweaver and it works well. The only item that I do not seem to be able to work out are the "Prev" and "Next" steps. They just do not appear anywhere on my image
I do not lnow where to include them if I need to enter them in the code.
The complete content of the script is in my "images folder"..

I was hoping someone could guide me on this.

P.S. I got the lightbox last week after posting for a search on this forum. It is a great script!!

To get a 'group' that exhibits the previous/next feature, you need to add a group name inside of brackets [] to each rel="lightbox" attribute in that group:

<a href="image1.jpg" rel="lightbox[group1]">One</a>
<a href="image2.jpg" rel="lightbox[group1]">Two</a>
<a href="image3.jpg" rel="lightbox[group1]">Three</a>

Use the brackets. I say this because some people might think they are not for use in the actual code, but they are.

Hi John: No I did not use the [group] attribute. I am using flowers images so I just used [flower] thinbking that it would be enough but I had no number next to it.
I am going to correct everything and post the results

Thanks for your help

HI John: I tried your suggestion but I am not getting the "Next or "Prev.

This is the way I set up my code in Dreamweaver
<a href="images/image-1a.jpg" rel="lightbox[group1]<one>" title="lily"><img src="images/thumb-1a.jpg" width="110" height="146" /></a>
My Images are in a table

Everything else works fine.

I can change the css or enter a code if I have to;
I appreciate any help

Sorry John : My code did not enclose the One in the <> as shown in my previous post . The code below is the one I used.
<a href="images/image-1a.jpg" rel="lightbox[group1]one" title="lily"><img src="images/thumb-1a.jpg" width="110" height="146" /></a>

Get rid of the highlighted part below and it should work:

<a href="images/image-1a.jpg" rel="lightbox[group1]one" title="lily"><img src="images/thumb-1a.jpg" width="110" height="146" /></a>

Hope this helps.

HI John: I deleted the "one". I now get under the title the info image 1 of 9
and that is correct.
However the"Next and Prev little image tabs do not appear at all.
Is there any way that I can make them appear by inserting them in the code somewhere or changing the css? I can do that.

I am using dreamweaver and the images are in atable format. It works great otherwise.
I also tried by using Notepad to build the site with the same results.

Thanks for the help

I'm not sure what the problem is. It sounds like you haven't made the next/previous images available to the script and style in the folder where they expect them to be. But, as I say, I cannot be sure. I think that it is time, if you haven't already, to put up a live demo of your latest effort. Either way, give us a link to it.

Please post a link to the page on your site that contains the problematic script so we can check it out.

Here is one of my sections, hope it helps

<img src="images/22.jpg" alt="" /><a href="macros/slides/1.jpg" rel="lightbox[macros]" title="Reversed Lily">Macros</a><br/>
<a href="macros/slides/2.jpg" rel="lightbox[macros]" title="Three Course Meal"></a>
<a href="macros/slides/3.jpg" rel="lightbox[macros]" title="Two against One"></a>
<a href="macros/slides/4.jpg" rel="lightbox[macros]" title="Cactus Bloom"></a>
<a href="macros/slides/5.jpg" rel="lightbox[macros]" title="Cone Flower"></a>
<a href="macros/slides/6.jpg" rel="lightbox[macros]" title="Pure White"></a>
<a href="macros/slides/7.jpg" rel="lightbox[macros]" title="Respledent Demise"></a>
<a href="macros/slides/8.jpg" rel="lightbox[macros]" title="Center Petals"></a>
<a href="macros/slides/9.jpg" rel="lightbox[macros]" title="Peach rose"></a>[/code

Remember, each image must have the [xxxxx] to get the tabs. And the first and last images in the set only have 1 tab not 2
