Custom Lightbox

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I have been trying to get this to work but so far I haven't had any luck, even after searching online. The plan I am on is not the commercial or the business plan. Was wondering if its possible to create or code a lightbox from a single image that opens into multiple images (including the image that was clicked on).

This lightbox cannot not be a gallery section as I need text on the left side of the page, and under the lightbox image as well.

The catch is that I need only one image to be seen. Once this image is clicked on, the lightbox pops up and shows around 4-5 images which are hidden to begin with.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

So the final result you want to achieve is having a lightbox that also contains the text/ caption, right?

Yes. A lightbox on the right hand side of the page. Main text is on the left hand side of the page and is aligned with the lightbox. Under the lightbox, I would need to add text too, but it seems with the current lightbox capabilities in SquareSpace, it's not possible. Do you have any solution?

With default feature + some script code, you can achieve this

  • Click Image >> Show Image in Lightbox
  • Add some description in Lightbox (under or left or right of image)

To achieve gallery/or multiple images in lightbox, you will need to use a 3rd party plugin
