Hi this is a very nice plugin and I like the fact that your support iLightbox

My question is :

Can I create a grid of many individual Albums/Galleries and display each (album/gallery) in the lightbox? I have a client with many projects (over 100) and each project has 10-20 images. We do not want a detailed description of each project, just to be able to display the images.

So when the user clicks on an grid item (album/gallery) I want this to be displayed on the lightbox without leaving the main grid page. I also need pagination of this grid i.e. 20 project albums/galleries per page.

Is there a demo of something like this that I can see?

Thank you in advance.

Hello,

The Grid supports FancyBox, PrettyPhoto, FooBoxV2 and The Grid lightbox (used in our live demo) plugins for the lightbox. iLightbox is currently not supported by The Grid.

The Grid works with post formats. It means that you can assign to a post a gallery format and The Grid will be display gallery images (from your gallery shortcodes or from images set thanks to The Grid settings) in the grid item. These images will be also displayed in the lightbox: http://theme-one.com/the-grid/post-formats/ It’s also possible with a custom php code to replace all Wordpress gallery shortcodes with a grid from The Grid.

A grid made from a post type can have a real pagination system with links or with ajax.

Yes I can see it is working and I guess I can only display images without and captions/content below them if I want to. (i.e. making a pure image grid from custom post type).

Your lightbox is fast (like iLightboxt) but it does not seem to support social sharing that is why I asked about iLightbox (fast + social sharing + plus it can load any type of content you want).

I think that fancy box also supports social media, wheel scrolling but needs some configuring with Javascript. Do you offer any controls for FancyBox for configuration or is Javascript that only route to customizing it?

Sorry for the many questions but I am looking into a solution that I can use in more than one projects in the future and stick to it if all the features are there.

Thank you for your time.

Hello,

Yes, you can only display images without caption/content like on this example: http://theme-one.com/the-grid/multi-rows-slider/. And you can also create your own skins thanks to The Grid.

For information: Social sharing buttons in a lightbox can be great but will not work in 90% of the cases. If your content is updated, it will fail. If you have a load more button or a pagination, it will fail. Unfortunately, social sharing buttons can only share an url. Lightbox which use social sharing buttons will share the same page url and open the right image on this page. So, any change in your grid order/content will simply make this feature unusefull. Currently there isn’t any technical way to make it work correctly due to the limitation offered by social services. So, it will mostly work for static page (Wordpress generate dynamic page (CMS)).

I’m not sure that FancyBox support social sharing buttons natively. But Foobox v2 support social sharing. Unfortunately, we do not offer customization services. Thank you for your understanding.
