Image blocks on a page with Gallery light box features

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there is a CSS code to enable a page of image blocks to have the "click to next image" function once an image is opened in its own LightBox? In essence giving a page of image blocks the same feature as a Gallery once an image is opened in a light box. The user clicks on an image - it opens in a lightnbox (which is easy to do), and now the user should be able to click to next image on the page and have it appear in the light box. Rather than close the image down, move to the next one and then click to view bigger and in isolation.

I find it so much easier and intuitive to arrange and curate a page of images by using single image blocks, but the light box function is basically useless because it only work for one image at a time, and the user has to close each image and move onto the next instead of simple clicking onto the next image on the page without leaving the Light Box view.

Galleries are very clunky to curate and  the design features are so limiting. 

many thanks,

Damon

@DamonCameron if you send me your site url with all enabled image lightboxes, I can send a dedícted playground url so you can test it on your site

 Hi @DamonCameron please check the recording for your homepage and gallery page where individual image blocks are connected into the single lightbox gallery

You can test the playground here https://beyondspace-showcase.squarespace.com/lightbox-studio?noredirect&websiteUrl=www.photosbydamon.com

Note: I just noticed the Playground has a problem displaying the connected Lightbox (I'm working on it), but rest assured it will work correctly on your page per the recordings

@Beyondspace the recording look good. But the test link doesn't seem to work as per your note. So how does it work? is it code?

 

@DamonCameron it is just the problem of the playground, the plugin is working just fine, now you can check the test URL again

By default the settings is not enable, please follow this to enable the feature for testing
