Lightbox video instead of separate page

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.farmore.io


I am trying to build out a sort of portfolio for past video production work, all displayed in a grid on one page. There are two things our team wants:

  • On-page navigation to sort between various categories of videos
  • For each video to lightbox in full screen when clicked

To accomplish the first goal, it seems my best option is to use the "Videos" page type. The only issue is that this page type does not seem to allow for the lightbox feature - rather, it takes you to an individual page for the clicked video.

Is there a way to code around this? If not, can anyone offer any suggestions that would allow both on-page category sorting and the lightbox feature?

Any help is appreciated.

I think I have an idea with Lightbox.

However, Can you describe in detail this/or have some example screenshot of this feature?

Essentially something like this where each button filters the videos tagged under each respective category:
