No problems [RZ] To carry on regarding the question asked, have you tried using more than one lightbox? I have tried and it seems to work. But I have to say I think adding as you asked 12 lightbox galleries to one page is overkill, reason being is this 12x lightbox = 12x12 images =144 this is a lot of images to load into one page at onetime, this may result in slower internet connection the user having to wait sometime for the last images to load before they can use the galleries. What your asking would be best done using a database calling each gallery/set of images into just one lightbox, and when ever the user either clicked on a thumbnail or a text link the images would get displayed. It is possible but you would need to implement the database and the PHP yourself to achive this.

sorry again bf, just for the benefit of the question here...
i agree with you about these lot of images, with no doubt it needs to be rethinked on how the images will be shown without overload the connection.
anyhow, i've noticed the latest version of SW, has an improved "smart" images loading method. one of my sites has 90 pictures (in the same instance) and are loaded really fast (i guess are loaded "on demand" / "on the fly"). yes i know that also 90 are a lot, but didn't have the option to divide it into smaller albums...
well... sorry again for posting this out of topic.

(ps: i don't know where the original thread is, so feel free to move this post to the correct place)

Hello BaconFries :) a quick question:

What code should I edit/add to make the gallery go to first image upon reaching the last image and click next? I mean to make it continuous.
I was able to show the next arrow upon reaching the last image, but after clicking it, it shows nothing!

Thanks :)

@ supersonictt Hmmmm good question? not sre that it can be done or not, the lightbox script used here has been modified to allow the print function, so it is a slightly different script than the original. I have done a quick scroll through the lightbox forum but can only find a solution for an older version of lightbox, if it can be done I will get back to you...or if you find anything let me know and I will see about adding.

@ supersonictt thx for asking about me :) still taking it as easy as I can :) ok I have been thinking about this, do you need the print button? if not the I do have another extension that does exactly what you wish....it can be download via the extension manager from Galleries looking for lightbox slide show this has the loop feature you need.

Little update on this on testing I found that if used with any other jQeury object there is a conflict I can get round this by modifying the extension js files so that it will works ...anyway if this is what you need just whistle and i will listen for tune ...

@BaconFries

Thanks a lot for not forgetting it :) I really appreciate it :)
I am not on a hurry, so take your time with that, so once all tests are done I will be happy to try it.

As of today my Lightbox Print (used on many pages of this website: http://www.wandelclub-algarve.nl) is not longer working in the Webbuilder program. Pictures I add in the Lightbox Print Properties windows show up as 'crosses'.
The settings are identical with the settings used on numerous other pages in the website.
I checked with ftp and concluded that all pictures are correctly uploaded but viewing the site I only see 'empty boxes'.
Java is turned on in the browsers I checked the site with (IE, FF and Safari, the last one tries to open an image but to no avail)

Just installed the extension and it works fine for me. I have viewed the url that you have provided, and looking at the source code, I can see that all the images used in the extension have invalid manes. An example of this is the following Cl%C3%A9rigo20.jpg. The reason why it is like is because you have used spacing in the image names it should be written as follows
Correct
ClC3A9rigo20.jpg
Incorrect
Cl C3 A9rigo20.jpg
So to fix this please do not use spaces or other non-alpha numeric characters in the names of web related files. I would also suggest not to use the extension in a iframe as it wasnt written to be used in one, it is really just ment to be used on a page.

Thanks BaconFries; this was indeed the cause of the problem. As I get these pictures delivered by others I will make sure to pay more attention to the filenames they use in the future!
