I think you could do this using Target Show/Hide to display what is essentially an image of the front ‘cover’ of an article.

That image then could use ScriptyLightbox to display the relevant web page.

ScriptyLightbox not ScriptyLightbox2 - different actions.

I cannot figure this out… I followed the directions on action forge and graphic link to file does not allow a web link either
and scripty lightbox action dialogue box says only media height and width and no lace for link address…
maybe I am misunderstanding this - as usual

If you want to link to a site, then don’t use Link to File to create it, just select the graphic and apply a normal link to it (Control + K).

Thx Walt

this worked great

but the one last bit of problem is. Once the link opens in lightbox window, the option to close window disappears. so there is no way back to page

Are you not seeing the little close (x) in one corner or another of the overlay?

Hi
Yes I see the close option until the link is fully loaded and then it opens the entire window and that’s thats…

I have linked the text to the web address and attached the scripty lightbox to the text link also. It opens the link exactly the way I want it but the option to close or even go back to main page is not an option
its strange . Dave’s example above is great with option to close available… with me not so easy

Can we see your online page please Carla?

I have linked the text to the web address and attached the scripty lightbox to the text link also.

I think this is where you are going wrong. Apply the action to the HTML container that holds the text or the container that holds the graphic you want to link from.

Your method tries to open 2 links simultaneously.

Ha Dave
as you know user error is my specialty
ok here is my test page

what I wanted was a list on left hand side of links to each review ( each review on a sep page) once you hit the larger image the scripty would open the link within the frame

so far all I can achieve is the text box to link. I was not able to add scripty action to large review because there is no place for link info
thx

I am ignoring the list down the left because that is just a Rollover which Triggers a Show/Hide Layer image on the right.

If you revisit my example I have placed a pic of the layout.

There are 2 pics (pengoo and club penguin) which have standard links applied (select and Cmd K)

These are contained within an HTML container which has the ScriptyLightbox action applied (no Media Height or Width have been set in the action interface)

Thats it!

ok Dave
Check out the example I made
The NY Times article dose not work after it completely loads , meaning there is no way back
but the LA Times article works fine

But I thought the point was to have the text in the list open the Target Show/Hide image on the right. And then a link on the image opens ScriptyLB.

You appear to have ScriptyLB applied to the html container that holds the list (NYT and LAT) instead.

Correct… I have not been able to put the web link address anywhere with the larger graphic…as its in an html box. I can only put a hyperlink on a graphic box

this is slightly confusing

maybe i put the larger image in a graphic box and attach scripty action to that? will that work

Dave

I retried this to put larger image in a graphic box but that does not work either
I am a little dense on this equation
