FAQ

Q:Is it possible to load a gallery from within image? So the gallery loads externally?

A:You should start the gallery onClick:

1) Add the following function into the <head> tag:

<script type="text/javascript">
function showLightBox()
{ Lightbox.start(document.getElementById('firstImage'));}
</script>

2) Specify the onClick event for the image (or link):
<img src="thumbnail_gr.jpg" onClick="javascript:showLightBox()" title="Click to see the demo" style="cursor: pointer;">
3) Set the ID for any image in your gallery (id="firstImage"), for example add it to the first image:
<a rel="lightbox_vlb" href="data/images/dscn6831.jpg" title="dscn6831" id="firstImage">
4) Use 'display: none;' property for your gallery in engine\css\vlightbox.css. Just change the following code:

#vlightbox a{
display:-moz-inline-stack;
display:inline-block;
zoom:1;
*display:inline;
position:relative;
vertical-align:top;
margin:3px;
width:160px;
font-family:Trebuchet,Tahoma,Arial,sans-serif;
font-size:11px;
font-weight:normal;
text-align:center;
opacity:0.87;
}
