Making image blocks viewed in Lightbox able to click through to 'next' image

Recommended Posts


I am trying to make it able for viewers to click through the separate image blocks when opened in Lightbox. Currently you have to click out of Lightbox via the X and then open the next image (new block) by clicking on it. 

This seems to be automatically enabled when images are viewed in Lightbox when displayed in a Portfolio Page with a Gallery but want to avoid using a portfolio because the grid systems are too rigid for my liking. I want the freedom of individual blocks but then able to view them all together once in Lightbox by clicking 'next'.

Examples can be seen in the attached files, the rising bread has no 'next' option, but the portrait, which is in a portfolio has 'next' and 'back' buttons.


Is this possible?

A few days ago, I did this for a site, but images size in lightbox view won't match image size in Grid View (I used a plugin to achieve this).
