Compose tips

  • To add a lightbox to your images, add rel="lightbox" attribute to any link tag to activate the lightbox. For example:

    <a href="image-1.jpg" rel="lightbox">image #1</a>

    <a href="image-1.jpg" rel="lightbox[][my caption]">image #1</a>

    To show a caption either use the title attribute or put in the second set of square brackets of the rel attribute.

    If you have a set of related images that you would like to group, then you will need to include a group name between square brackets in the rel attribute. For example:

    <a href="image-1.jpg" rel="lightbox[roadtrip]">image #1</a>
    <a href="image-2.jpg" rel="lightbox[roadtrip][caption 2]">image #2</a>
    <a href="image-3.jpg" rel="lightbox[roadtrip][caption 3]">image #3</a>

    There are no limits to the number of image sets per page or how many images are allowed in each set.

    If you wish to turn the caption into a link, format your caption in the following way:

    <a href="image-1.jpg" rel='lightbox[][<a href="http://www.yourlink.com">View Image Details</a>]' >image #1</a>

  • It's possible to show HTML snippets in the lightbox, that is on the same domain. In this case the "rel" attribute should be set to "lightmodal". Again it's possible to group the content, (e.g. lightmodal[group][caption]) but in addition to that, it's possible to control some of the modal properties. It's possible to set the "width", "height" and "scrolling" properties of the modal. The properties are separated from the group name by a |, for example lightmodal[group|width:100px;][caption]. If no grouping is being used, then the | is still used and the format would be lightmodal[|width:100px;]. The properties should all be of the format "property: value;" - note the closing semi-colon. If no modal properties are set, then the default width and height of 400px will be used. See below for more detailed examples.

    Basic example:
    <a href="search.php" rel="lightmodal">Search</a>

    Grouped example:
    <a href="search.php" rel="lightmodal[search][caption 1]">Search</a>
    <a href="search.php?status=1" rel="lightmodal[search]">Search published</a>

    Controlling modal property example:
    <a href="search.php" rel="lightmodal[|width:400px; height:300px; scrolling: auto;][caption]">Search</a>

    Controlling modal property when grouped example:
    <a href="search.php" rel="lightmodal[search|width:400px; height:300px; scrolling: auto;]">Search</a>
    <a href="search.php?status=1" rel="lightmodal[search|width:400px; height:300px;]">Search published</a>
