Lightbox from CMS


I’m trying to use the CMS functionality to display different building projects on my homepage. That works so far (See the projects section). Now I want to show an overlay with a lightbox or something similar when I click on the individual project. Like in this screenshot from the design:

I don’t want to link to an individual page for each project. I understand that I can’t grab the pictures from the multi-image field in the CMS as long as I’m not on a collection page. What other options do I have? I’m a bit lost here…

Oh, and the page only works on desktop so far.

Here is my site Read-Only: LINK

As long as the images are on the page, you can turn them into a lightbox. Creating the groups dynamically will be the trickier part, you may need to use an external lightbox solution like fancybox.

To bring in all of the images you need for your collection, have a look at Finsweet’s CMS Next.
