Use Text Links Instead of Thumbnail Images in FancyBox “example_group”

To use text links instead of thumbnails in FancyBox galleries, add a line of code after the “example_group” javascript:


'transitionIn' : 'none',

'transitionOut' : 'none',

'titlePosition' : 'over',

'titleFormat' : function(title,

currentArray, currentIndex, currentOpts) {

return '<span id="fancybox-title-over">Image ' + (currentIndex + 1) + ' / ' + currentArray.length + (title.length ? ' &nbsp; ' + title : '') + '</span>'; } });


Next, add the newly created “text” class to ‘example_group’ (related) links:

<a class="text" rel="example_group" href="./example/7_b.jpg">Text Link 1</a>

<a class="text" rel="example_group" href="./example/8_b.jpg">Text Link 2</a>

<a class="text" rel="example_group" href="./example/9_b.jpg">Text Link 3</a>

The text links now open a lightbox for the corresponding image file.  Mousing up and/or down while the cursor is directly over the lightbox cycles through other images in the ‘example_group’ gallery.
