Hi All
I have just been to this website www.zone5pix.com (http://www.zone5pix.com)
and really like the interface for images - please have a look at my website www.lonelyobject.com (http://www.lonelyobject.com) - I think the way it is done on the zone5pix site is far better and possibly a solution or replacement for my ( apparent misuse ) of the lightbox interface. (?)

Apologies to Carbon Terry if this question is out of place - your website is great - and you are indeed a helpful fellow. If I have asked this question in the wrong place please let me know.

Thanks in advance / kind regards

Mark a.k.a Maxy the Leprechaun :)

Not sure if that was created with the older version of the software, but the new one is very similar with a lot of extras. LINK
(http://www.webgallerywizard.com/Web-Gallery/Wizard.htm)But what was your question?

sorry - I was referring to the way he has his gallery set up i.e you have a series of thumbnails then when you click on the image it comes up whilst still showing the thumbnails on the right - is this a lightbox that has been customised or the I-Frame ? I thought it might be another template ( for want of a better word ) - or has he made it himself ?

and then I just checked to get you the link and found it ( now shuffling feet rather embarrassing )

sorry all - I just need to purchase this software I think :)))

Hi all
I have made a page with the inline frame as per the link - I am unsure about the uploading of the main images i.e where do I do this ?
I have opened up my cpanel and thru filemanager have uploaded the images to the public html folder > images - is this correct ?
These are the images I want the thumbnails to link to - I have named all the thumbnail images accordingly - do I have to name the images I uploaded as http://www.lonelyobject.com/imagename.jpg ?

Many thanks

What you have done seems fine. It might of been tidy'er if you uploaded to an image folder, but the public_html will be fine. Naturally! don't name the thumbnails the same as the larger ones or you will over-right them when publishing. Or you can name them the same & then add something like a -tn to each one. IE: http://www.lonelyobject.com/imagename-tn.jpg (http://www.lonelyobject.com/imagename.jpg)

....just for your info: I have done the same sort of thing here (http://www.zaanta.net/trinidad.html) & all I did was open a new page - insert the image (sized to fit my iframe) - save the page as *** & then link the appropriate thumb to it with target set as the iframe....
time-consuming but simple & quite effective,
