Happy Holidays,

What is the best way to display images in a listing? I have a travel related site with listings for hotels, restaurants, etc. Each listing has approx 5 images. I need a simple way to display “Thumbnails” of all images and when clicked, it should open like an album. I can’t find any information in the support documentation except for on how to install and use ImageSliePro. How about Lightbox? Are there any tutorials or documentation on this issue?

Hi RapidWeb

An excellent reference is the "CMSB Cookbook" or the posts on this forum.

CMSB Cookbook: http://www.thecmsbcookbook.com

Happy Holiday!

[font "Times New Roman"]I had purchased your CMS Cookbook in the past. What I would like now is information on how to integrate Lightbox with CMS.[/#000000]

[font "Times New Roman"]I saw an example here from Donna in the Interactive Tool newsletter issue 73, Feb 12, 2008 where she made a sample web site for Dad:[/#000000]

[font "Times New Roman"]I really want exactly that effect:[/#000000]

[font "Times New Roman"]I want to do the exact same thing. Have 5 images display in a row (I will limit the number of uploads to 5 in the editor) and then have them pop up in a gallery when one is clicked.[/#000000]

[font "Times New Roman"]How to I get Lightbox to work with my CMS Builder site?[/#000000]

[font "Times New Roman"]Do I have to download Lightbox first to my server?[/#000000]

[font "Times New Roman"]Where do I get the Lightbox program (link to program)?[/#000000]

[font "Times New Roman"]Where do I place it on my server?[/#000000]

Re: [RapidWeb] What is the best way to display images in a listing?

I suggest you start with the CMSB Cookbook, specifically the section on 3rd Part Integration. It describes how to integrate Lightbox or Milkbox with CMCB.

You can also view the code for the site you provided. That should get you going,

You can find Lightbox 2 here http://www.huddletogether.com/projects/lightbox2/

Get it working first without CMSB. Once its working, then replace the specific image references with your php code from CMSB.
