Re: Lightbox Gallery Resource
 

Hi,

We are using Moodle 2.2 and recently installed Lightbox.

We tried both the plugin given on the Moodle Docs page and then tried the github.com one (as a previous post said it was newer)

With both installs, we get no error messages and the ability to add a Lightbox is there in the "Add a Resource" drop down menu on the course page. 

However, there is no drop down box the "Image Directory" - so there appears to be no way of adding pictures.  All the other settings are there.

Has anyone else had this problem?  Can you help to fix it?

Cheers, Laura

This is what we see, no Image Directory under the description box

Hi Laura,

The old 'image directory' made use of Moodle 1.9's way of storing files (now called legacy files). You no longer do that from the add/edit screen you've screen shot there. Go ahead and save/add the resource. Once you click on it to view it, you'll see on the view page a link to "Add images".

Clicking that allows you to then upload a file. Either a single image or a zip file full of images. These are then added into the gallery. (When I get time one day, I'll update that file selector to allow you to upload multiple images without needing to zip them up...)

I hope that covers it for you smile

That's fantastic - thank you - I have it working.

I never thought to save it first

Cheers, Laura
