Flickr API vs "Lightbox"

  • # April 14, 2010 at 11:30 am

    Hi!

    I’m currently trying to make the flickr api connect to some sort of lightbox. The problem is that it wont work at all! Some "lightboxes" don’t do anything, or some wont even launch.

    I’v read some articles about that it’s the conflict between scripts and libraries, but i can’t find a solution. Some one who’s done this before ?

    Using: jQuery, Flickr API and trying to find a decent "lightbox".

    Cheers

    When some of people was coding the website they wrote an awesome Flickr plugin for the framework that opens the medium size image from flickr in a lightbox.
    So when we wrote a post on interacting with the flickr application.

    1. You have to make a function that will use the Flickr application to generate a list of thumbnails.
    2. You have to make it so when the user clicks an image it opens in a lightbox.

    If you can’t find the solution for the JS conflict, you could use a pure css lightbox instead. http://www.visibilityinherit.com/code/p … ghtbox.php
