What I want to do is shown in this website. http://fmwlaw.biz/attorneys.php Click on any attorney photo. Can this be done in Muse? If so, how? I tried using the Lightbox widget, but I may be missing a step. Thanks, David
Yes, the lightbox composition is able to do this. You may be running into trouble by trying the lightbox slideshow, which requires the thumbnail and slide to be identical (the lightbox composition doesn't have this restriction). Set the thumbnail to the photo of the person, and place the biography image in the corresponding lightbox slide.
Colby, Thanks for your reply. I must be missing a step. You can go to email@example.com and look at the Attorneys page just to get a feel of this site. I think I have 2 problems. I don't understand what you mean when you say "Set the thumbnail to the photo of the person". Perhaps you can give me step by step or direct me to a training module. The other problem is when I click on the little blue arror to the right I don't don't get the Upload Image Option. I got it when I created the rotating photos at the top right of the site, but not for this. Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks, David
There is a difference between the composition widgets and the slideshow widgets. The slideshow widgets have the "Add Images" option, and they automatically keep track of thumbnails for you. The composition widgets (lightbox composition included) are much more free form, but don't take care of linking thumbnails to slides automatically.
In your case, using a lightbox composition will work well. Here's some steps:
- Place a lightbox composition
- Drag the attorney's profile picture image into one of the thumbnail areas
- Drag the biography image into the slide for that profile picture
Let me know if this helps.
You may also would like to check this small video that I have made to demonstrate how this can be done, check here, http://project02.businesscatalyst.com/jing/2012-04-14_0204.swf
I have used the images from your example for demonstration purpose only.
Colby and Abhishek, Outstanding!!! You guys are great. Both answers were perfect! The only other thing I need to know is how I get the big boigraphy off my Muse design screen, as I want to do 3 more lawyers the same way.
Oh, one other problem just occurred. Client wrote that the Download buttons on that page take her to a 403 error screen when she tested the downloads. She has IE. I'm working on a Mac and using Firefox. Works great on my end. Hmmmmmmm?
If I understand you correctly, you can uncheck "Show lightbox parts while editing." This will hide the lightbox portion to make editing easier. As for your other question, can you please create another post so that we can address it there specifically?
