Hi All

I'm slowly getting better with CSS, so bear with me :(

When I'm adding image hyperlinks to my website articles, I simply drop to the code and add rel="lightbox" into the URL so that it uses the lightbox image transition when the images are clicked {example}

before
<a href="/KB/Media/0000742/00001.jpg"><img src="/KB/Media/0000742/00001s.jpg" width="550" height="421" alt="_vti_inf.html" /></a>
after
<a href="/KB/Media/0000742/00001.jpg" rel="lightbox"><img src="/KB/Media/0000742/00001s.jpg" width="550" height="421" alt="_vti_inf.html" /></a>


Can I not just add something to my CSS so that if the link is an image, add the rel="ligthbox" automatically? If so, what and where?

CSS doesn't work like that. It's a static language.

You could use some jquery to add it though.

$(''a img[src$=".jpg"]'').attr('rel', 'lightbox')

Open in new window

Yikes - I'm a network engineer! , where do I put that? and I'm assuming I would also need..

$(''a img[src$=".png"]'').attr('rel', 'lightbox')

Would that go in my CSS, or am I Waaay out of my depth here?

It's not too bad Pete. First do you know if your loading jQuery in your page?
If not add this  just before the closing </body> tag.

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(''a img[src$=".jpg"]'').attr('rel', 'lightbox')
</script>

Open in new window


If you already have jquery on your page, then just add the 2nd part.

Do you have a live URL you could share?

I Don't think I am http://www.petenetlive.com/KB/Article/0000742.htm

Would it not be more efficient for me to load something into my JS folder on the root of the site and reference that - or is that a stupid question?

Not a stupid question. I see your loading prototype.js. In that case, you can't use what I've given you.

Try this instead.

$$('a[href$=.jpg], a[href$=.png].each(function(
link.writeAttribute('rel','lightbox');
}

Open in new window


I'm not very good with Prototype, but this will hopefully get you started.

Tried - the first graphic has a manual rel in the link, the rest of the graphics I've removed it, they have stopped working

Unfortunately I can't really implement this, but as no other experts were forthcoming, Ill close and accept this as a workable solution.

Thanks for your efforts
