Slider thumbnails (preferably using CMS)

Is it at all possible to link to show a specific slide within a slider without using custom code?

I have scanned this forum as far as i feel like i can go and can’t seem to find a way to do this, but I simply want to have thumbnails for my slider (preferably) without having to use custom code, does anyone know if this is possible?

So far I’ve tried a creating Section links and URL links with the native slider widget and the CMS but no avail on either. (with the slider one, i simply try’d to hide a div in a slide to see if a link box would direct me to that slide but sadly that didn’t work) - it just showed the slider(mask?) itself and not the actual div

If not, can anyone help or point me in the right direction to start learning some coding to achieve this effect for my thumbnails hidden in a lightbox, click to close the lightbox and reveal image in the slider;

Hoping for the thumbnail lightbox to look like this;

any and all help would be massively appreciated! So much thanks in advanced :slight_smile:
