A lot of questions get asked in the RapidWeaver forum about creating a gallery set from Shadowbox , so this short how-to should help explain using this .
What is a gallery set ?
In Shadowbox, you can group media(images, movies, flash) as a set, in this case a gallery set , when the shadowbox opens you get previous and next arrows or text selections to move between the gallery set items you have set up.
An example of a gallery set item
In this example with Shadowbox v2 you get a graphical link indicating more items, no need to close the overlay and select an additional image :)
So let us proceed to make a gallery set item to pop up with Shadowbox.
Make a link
Link to image – shadowbox setting
1. Add Link to to asset, this could be a movie too
2. Add custom attribute
3. add the rel tag shadowbox[test] . This is to notify Shadowbox that the image is part of a set
no spaces in the gallery name or it will not work :D
Test the link
Here we have the image in a Shadowbox, ths actual item is in gallery set of 3 items. (you can move between a Flash file, a web page or image anything you want )
