Link to a image lightbox

Recommended Posts

I'd like to link directly to an image block already opened in a lightbox. Is this possible? If so, how do it do it?

 

For reference: In an email I'd like to be able to say "refer to this image" and have "this image" hyperlinked to the exact image already opened in a lightbox. They can then 'x' out the lightbox and peruse the sight as necessary.

Yes, ideally "this image" will be hyperlinked in an email. When clicked on in the email it will open my website, to an image from my site in a lightbox where the user can then opt to close out the window (X) and continue to peruse the site.

In other words, I want to be able to direct them to a specific image on my page (a page that has multiple image blocks) and give them the option to continue to look through my website by having that image open in a lightbox.

Right now, this is what I have: this image. And this is the page it's pulling from: https://www.hkportfolio.com/extracurriculars

These dynamic links only available on Squarespace Grid section lightbox, for example https://www.joeyfennartist.com/?itemId=w1lfchnzjh4x9mmqvzl98silkrd7g2 will open the page with lightbox already opened.

Since you are using Image blocks in Fluid engine section, it is not available. May I suggest alternate solution using Lightbox Studio? Every slide is assigned with a unique URL regardless the gallery type, these URLs allow to automatically open the targeted gallery on page load, as you can see here

Btw, you can use this playground URL for your site to check other features
