How to initiate a lightbox style gallery via text link

  • # January 20, 2012 at 3:15 pm

    Hello – I am curious to know how to initiate a lightbox style gallery via a text link. My client does not desire to have actual thumbnails on the page and would prefer to keep it clean and uncluttered and fire this off via a text link.

    Did you ever get a reply for this? I have a client who needs a lightbox gallery from a text link and also from a mouse over image. I am unable to find any forums that have a solution for that. Please help!

    Add a rel="lightbox" attribute to any link tag to activate Lightbox, so those can be link elements with just text.
