Add slider arrows

Permalink Browser Info Environment

Is there a way to display a right and a left arrow in the lightbox view? (same one as in your simple slider block: Also a little x in the corner would be nice to close the lightbox. This would only be a help for the visitors of my website to told them: hey, click on the right or left arrow to swip between the images.

thanks a lot.

I wanted to do the same thing that you have asked about. I have modified and added to the code, to make this work. Below, I have included what I did in case you are still looking for an answer to your question.

NOTE: I chose to edit the original files in the package, however you could chose to override the original files by placing the edited files in the root/application/blocks directory.

All files and folder referenced below will be in this directory: packages/vivid_thumb_gallery/blocks/vivid_thumb_gallery

Open templates/lightbox/view.php

from line 24 to 31, replace

        onStart: function(){
            $("body").append("<div class='blackout'>");
        onEnd: function(){


$( function(){
      var activityIndicatorOn = function()
            $( '<div id="imagelightbox-loading"><div></div></div>' ).appendTo( 'body' );
         activityIndicatorOff = function()
            $( '#imagelightbox-loading' ).remove();
         closeButtonOn = function( instance )
            $( '<button type="button" id="imagelightbox-close" title="Close"></button>' ).appendTo( 'body' ).on( 'click touchend', function(){ $( this ).remove(); instance.quitImageLightbox(); return false; });

You will then need to create a view.css file in templates/lightbox/

Paste this into that file

#imagelightbox {
   box-shadow: 0 0 3.125em rgba( 0, 0, 0, .75 ); /* 50 */
   -moz-box-shadow: 0 0 3.125em rgba( 0, 0, 0, .75 ); /* 50 */
   -webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 3.125em rgba( 0, 0, 0, .75 ); /* 50 */
         width: 2.5em; /* 40 */
         height: 2.5em; /* 40 */
         text-align: left;
         background-color: rgba( 0, 0, 0, .5 );
         border-radius: 50%;
         position: fixed;
         z-index: 10002;

That should be it.

Hat Tip: To Osvaldas Valutis for creating Image Lightbox and providing awesome examples of it's implementation.

I patched this add-on. Along with other fixes, my version includes navigation arrows in the lightbox view.

- Fixed missing asset: featherlight.css
- Included navigation arrows and an X to close the lightbox (THANKS DRUMRBY)
- Lightbox is the default template

The zip file is attached.

I am always available for custom coding and add-on modification. Email me: bobby AT </shameless_self_promotion>
