Clicking on an image in a gallery "Slideshow" to enlarge it

Recommended Posts


My client has two requests for me for the "Slideshow" gallery format but I can't quite find the right coding.


1.  She does not like that to go back and forth between images in the gallery you can click on any part of the image to do so. She would like the left and right arrows to be the only "hot keys" to toggle. Essentially disabling the function of clicking on an image to go through the slideshow.

2. She would also like each image to enlarge when clicked on (like the "Lightbox" function) OR when clicking on a separate button.


Would these two requests be possible for Squarespace 7.1 through custom codes?

I've included screenshots of what my page and settings look like now for  the "slideshow" gallery. I would really appreciate some help on this!

I am also wanting an ability to essentially lightbox an image in a slideshow. I have a couple images with information on them that can be difficult to read.

Do you mean similar to this? 



I am also looking for this, but with the "simple list" auto layout feature. Will be following 

@rodabaugh you mean the Auto layout on 7.1 right?
