Lightbox Element ❺

Enhance Webflow's Lightbox Element
See the sub pages for details on how to implement;
  • CMS captions in lightboxes
  • CMS lightbox groups

Future Ideas

CMS Video lightboxes

  • Pull the thumbnail as the image
  • Size it properly for the video

A/V lightboxes

CMS-driven A/V Lightboxes, where A and V can be specifically ordered.
Problems;
  • CMS does not have a gallery capability for videos
  • Videos must be / should be pre-loaded
  • YouTube related videos problem
  • No lightbox thumbnail support for CMS video fields
Solutions;
  • Poss use image gallery with alt text to point to video URL
  • Poss use Plyr to control video appearance
  • Poss pull YT thumb as basis automatically
Use WF designer to setup and create your lightboxes, then we unwire it and use a separate lightbox provider to solve for the missing functionality;
  • Better combination of video & image content
  • Captions on video & images
  • CMS groups
  • Wraparound, etc.
