Thank you for your reply and video! Can’t believe I wasted time on getting the lightbox to work when it was so simple all along…
I’ve got it set up correctly now, but, the pagination STILL breaks the lightbox. Revisit the live site and see what I mean. When you load the page initially, the first few items in the gallery work together in a lightbox. However, if you click “next” at the bottom, the second page doesn’t open in a lightbox at all. If you refresh the page, and it reloads on the second page, they work again.
Something about transitioning through the paginated pages breaks the lightbox.
Hey @magicmark its been awhile… but I’m needing this solution again for another client. Now thats its been awhile since this feature released, have you had any breakthroughs with this bug? Same exact problem as I describe above.
When you load the page initially, the first few items in the gallery work together in a lightbox. However, if you click “next” at the bottom, the second “page” of images are in a separate lightbox. I’d like the user to be able to scroll through all the photos in one lightbox.
I am using a CMS gallery, but I still want it to be paginated (lots of photos). The problem is that it only shows one “page,” or set, of images in the lightbox. Then if I click “next” and select a photo from that new set, it only shows the other photos in that set/page within the lightbox. All of the photos in the gallery should be in one lightbox, but still work with pagination.
@mtchdrr, I believe your issue here lies within the limit of each CMS Gallery. The limit is 25 images. Therefore even with the selected gallery names, you will be limited to the total number of 25. I could be wrong tho. I have not had the opportunity to test it out fully myself.
Please send me your current share link so I can see first hand the issue you are having.
The way you have your gallery setup, the current way, will be limited to the gallery view per page, since pagination is setup with a per page layout. SO you have your images limited to 24 per page.
If you truly want a paginated gallery that would have continuous lightbox image effect, you will have to place your Images in the Image-Gallery field, within a single collection item and then place them on the Gallery template page, as the multi-image gallery field is only visible on Template pages at the moment.
The 25 image limit is all we have right now. As this only works with the Lightbox element, the pagination effect that Mitch was speaking about could only be done with custom code as the CMS Slider is still not available.
