FAQ

Q:Instead of making one page with 40 photos, is there no property to make 2 or more pages?

A:You can do it in the following way:

1. Create your gallery in VisualLightBox and publish it on a local drive in any test folder.
2. Make two copies of the generated index.html file (for example index1.html and index2.html).
3. Open index.html, index1.html and index2.html files in any text editor.
4. Find code for the gallery inside the BODY tag and cut some part of the images, so you'll have different images on each page.

<!-- Start VisualLightBox.com BODY section -->
<div class="gallery">
<!-- leave the following code on index.html page -->
<a href="./data/images/1.jpg" rel="lightbox[sample]" title="Best Toy Ever"><img src="./data/thumbnails/1.png" /></a>
<a href="./data/images/8.jpg" rel="lightbox[sample]" title="PrueaMacro"><img src="./data/thumbnails/8.png" /></a>

<!-- leave the following code on index1.html page -->
<a href="./data/images/3.jpg" rel="lightbox[sample]" title="Macro Leaf."><img src="./data/thumbnails/3.png" /></a>
<a href="./data/images/11.jpg" rel="lightbox[sample]" title="Bell Pepper"><img src="./data/thumbnails/11.png" /></a>

<!-- leave the following code on index2.html page -->
<a href="./data/images/5_0.jpg" rel="lightbox[sample]" title="5"><img src="./data/thumbnails/5_0.png" /></a>
<a href="./data/images/6_0.jpg" rel="lightbox[sample]" title="6"><img src="./data/thumbnails/6_0.png" /></a>

<!--[if lte IE 6]><script src="engine/js/pngfix_vlb.js" type="text/javascript"></script><![endif]-->
<a id="vlightbox" href="http://visuallightbox.com/">Online Photo Album Sharing by VisualLightbox.com</a>
</div>
<!-- End VisualLightBox.com BODY section -->

5. Create links to switch between your pages, for example:
<a href="index.html">1</a>  <a href="index1.html">2</a>  <a href="index2.html">3</a> 


Q:I want to change color of the overlay shadow? How can I do this?

width: 100%;
height: 500px;
background-color: #FFF;
filter:alpha(opacity=60);
-moz-opacity: 0.6;
opacity: 0.6;
}
