I am fairly new to html and very new to jquery/lightbox.  I desire to do the following.  I want a hyperlink that opens a lightbox gallery that shows several photos.

My code so far looks like this:
<html>
	<head>
		<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/jquery.lightbox-0.5.css" media="screen" />
	
		<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.js"></script>
		<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.lightbox-0.5.js"></script>
		<script type="text/javascript">
			$(function() {
				$('#gallery a').lightBox();
			});
		</script>		
	</head>
	<body>
		<div id="gallery">  
			<a href="photos/image1.jpg" >Picture 1</a>
			<br/>
			<a href="photos/image2.jpg" >Picture 2</a>
		</div>
	</body>
</html>

Open in new window


I would like to show both pictures (or more) but with only one link.  Any ideas?

I can present you a logic to implement such scenario;
You can place all the images you wanted to show in popup in other html file.
using the Jquery on image click you can popup that HTML.
But instead of light box you need to use, fancybox or other lightbox plugin that dispaly html in popups.
Hope this helps you better.

I just found an example of what I want to do but it uses Joomla.  Look here at example 7.  Can I do this in Lightbox or can I mix html and joomla?

Yes you can use just add other ids in lightbox
<script type="text/javascript">
			$(function() {
				$('#gallery a').lightBox();
			});
		</script>	

Open in new window


<div id="gallery">  
			<a href="photos/image1.jpg" >Picture 1</a>
			<br/>
			<a href="photos/image2.jpg" >Picture 2</a>
		</div>

Open in new window


Add div like gallery in above

Thanks jagadishdulal.  That helped but I am still struggling.  Here is really what I am trying to accomplish.  I want two hyperlinks.  When you click the first one, it opens a lightbox gallery.  when you click the second one it opens a different lightbox gallery.

Thanks in advance.
