1) No, lightboxgallery works with pictures only at present - sorry.
2) That kind of functionality would probably be best served by a filter plugin, not a resource module. It'd certainly be possible to create a filter that looks for links to lightboxgallery images and transforms them into something that'll show a thumbnail that can be clicked on. But someone would have to develop that filter.
I think my question is similar to Ravi's.
Is it possible to have a lightbox series that opens from the course front page, rather than from a link on the page?
This would mean that a user could click directly on an image on the course page and it would open a bigger lightbox image right then and there from a section summary or perhaps a label.
Please see the image below for clarification.
I'd appreciate any comments.
With Lightbox Gallery being a resource I can't see how you could accomplish that. A filter on the other hand, as suggested by Adam, could do that.
+1 for extending Lightbox Gallery to play videos. If we then could have a Lightbox Gallery filter that can be used throughout the site, now that would be fantastic.
