Summary blocks - open video in lightbox?

Recommended Posts

I'm using 7.1, and I added some videos into a summary box.

(It would be great if I could just add videos to a gallery like in 7.0 but c'est la vie I suppose)

Anyway! Is there a way to get the video to open in a lightbox rather than going to the page the video is hosted at? I added the videos themselves as an unlinked video collection page.  

Also, the first image shows the summary block with the 3 videos, but it would be awesome if I could get some kind of slider arrow on either side showing more videos, like the second image.

Hi,

#1. I think Summary has arrows on top right corner? We can move it to right/left side & have style same as your screenshot. If you share link to page where you added Summary - Slide (in screenshot), we can check & give the code

#2. To make video in Lightbox, you can use Video Lightbox plugin
