Lightbox help?

Aug 19, 2012 6:11 PM

I finaly got lightbox to work and it works like it should. I want to add a [Dowload PDF] link to the pdf version. What i am making is a menu in a lightbox version. i know that i can add a "title" to the photo but i cant add a link inside the title. How do i add a link to the PDF version in Lightbox?

    Perhaps you can post a link to your page where you want to add a link of the pdf file or at least post a skeleton code (HTML) for people here to see what you are trying to do.

    in a former version of lightbox support, they gave this answer to "Can I insert links in the caption?"


    Yes, but you need to convert quotes and greater and less than symbols into their html entity equivalents. For example:

    <a href="images/image-4.jpg" rel="lightbox" title="&lt;a href=&quot;link.html&quot;&gt;my link&lt;/a&gt;">Image</a>  



    I think that this will work adapted to your pdf links as well.


    Otherwise you could ask your question in lightbox' forum: One question I found there which is similar to your problem, I think:


    ... and if contrary to my expectations you will not be successful in your efforts I'll join DG/L's proposal.

    hans-g is correct. You have to convert the double quotation marks and greater than/less than symbols to their entities. Here's a reference to HTML Entities:
