How to Use:
Part 1 – Setup
- Include the Lightbox CSS file (or append your active stylesheet with the Lightbox styles).
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/lightbox.css" type="text/css" media="screen" />
- Check the CSS and make sure the referenced
next.giffiles are in the right location. Also, make sure the
close.giffiles as referenced near the top of the
lightbox.jsfile are in the right location.
Part 2 – Activate
- Add a
rel="lightbox"attribute to any link tag to activate the lightbox. For example:
<a href="images/image-1.jpg" rel="lightbox" title="my caption">image #1</a>
Optional: Use the
titleattribute if you want to show a caption.
- If you have a set of related images that you would like to group, follow step one but additionally include a group name between square brackets in the rel attribute. For example:
<a href="images/image-1.jpg" rel="lightbox[roadtrip]">image #1</a> <a href="images/image-2.jpg" rel="lightbox[roadtrip]">image #2</a> <a href="images/image-3.jpg" rel="lightbox[roadtrip]">image #3</a>
No limits to the number of image sets per page or how many images are allowed in each set. Go nuts!
