Lightbox that's not a grid for video

Recommended Posts


I've been hoping that one day Squarespace would offer a template with lightbox that's not a boring square gallery grid system for video. Most clients don't want to click into another page, and it's not very visually appealing to only have the option to have the title/description written underneath and not on rollover. 

Is this still true? Or am I missing a template?

Hi. Can you describe in detail? & share link to gates template?

Looking at templates Gates, Matsuya, Talva, etc these are great layouts for still images. However, you cannot have these as video Lightboxes. Best I can do is hacking away at wexley template, but that even that is limited with the user being unable to show the title. Curious why video portfolios feel sidelined in appearance and usage options, only relegated to rigid grid galleries that take a click or two off the homepage to get to and aren’t very organic looking?

Or am I missing something that Squarespace is offering?
