One of my clients, a photographer, needs the ability for a lightbox to open when clicking on a single photo. However, this lightbox should not only display the clicked photo but also other photos linked to this lightbox, essentially creating a hidden lightbox gallery behind the single photo. My question is: Is there a way to set up such a hidden lightbox gallery that only becomes visible when the single photo is clicked, without displaying these other photos in a visible gallery on the website?
We have an upcoming requirement for this also, so very interested to know how this is recommended to be done with Cwicly.
I did something like this a long time ago, using happy file (a plugin that I have in every installation) and some simple css…. If need more info you can mail me
Many Thanks for making me aware of the happy files plugin. Will check it out. But I still wonder why such a simple “Album” functionality would not be possible with Cwicly.
I’m not sure about it because I never tried but a simple trick could be to build a normal gallery with Lightbox, than you need just a css rule to display:none; all the images except the first…
A hidden lightbox gallery is definitely possible in Cwicly, by using a shared lightbox gallery name between your various lightbox items.
This can be achieved in two different ways, depending on your preference:
Gallery block → by setting the Gallery’s link type to lightbox and renaming the Gallery block’s ID to your image’s lightbox gallery name.
Then set the gallery’s display to ‘none’.
Here is a short video demonstration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZ4Ykwo8amE
Image block → by adding a div containing your different desired images, to which you toggle the lightbox option and input the main image’s lightbox gallery name.
Then set the div’s display to ‘none’.

Hope this helps!
Damn, @Araminta Why are you so smart!!
If Cwicly would not have hired you, I surely would have!
