Is it possible to do this in Freeway

Hi Please see the link below: If you click on the work sample squares, you seen that it opens a viewing box with the background of the site tinted out. Is it possible to do this in Freeway - I like the idea so would like to incorporate in my site. Thanks

Yes, it’s a “styled” version of Lightbox. An action for Freeway 4 to 5 Pro is found on Weaver’s site:

Scroll down it’s called “Lightbox Image”

That will give you a real raw edition of what you’ve seen, but it is style-able with a little CSS and graphic adjustments.

For more control, check out the MooTools SlimBox features.

I raise your great manual method and provide another manual method. :)



Seems to have a better presentation as far as the Lightbox (ThickBox) output. I like the polaroid look over no border at all. Seems easy enough, a few HTML Markup pastes in the Page Header, a few files to the server and you’re off and running.

agreed, by hand is easier…
