Lightbox- Some Issues/More Features
 

Hi ALL,

Referring this

I have some issues

1] Instead of only pictures, i want to embed some video from external sites too.

Is it possible by Lightbox ?

2] Can i use Lightbox in any other HTML Pages (ForumPost, Course/Section Page in Moodle)

See Post [by Anil Sharma]

 

TIA

Ravi Vare

Hi Ravi,

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.

Hi,

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.

Regards,

Harry

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. cool

Thanks Christoph (and Adam). Appreciate the reply. That filter would be most welcome.
