You should be able to install a standard lightbox or thickbox and then look for images that reside inside the forum containers and then call the lightbox on them using jQuery. Shouldn’t be too difficult.
Have you implemented a lightbox yourself before without a plugin?
I have Light Box Plus installed. I’m not a developer, I haven’t tried to implement anything like that on my own. You make it sound easy but for someone like me I’m sure that it’s not. 😀
What you can do is add the current lightbox you have installed to a specific element on your site.
For example, something like this inside script tags in your theme, or inside a js file:
jQuery(“.bbPress .bbpress-forums img”).lightbox();
This does depend on your theme though, might be easier if you could post a site link?
Theme: Custom Comunity
Here is what is on the home page.
Here is what is on your forums.
So you need to link the image on the forums to the full sized image, if that makes sense?
Nope its doesn’t make sense, but I’ll figure it out. 🙂
Thanks for your help, much appreciated.
EDIT: I think I know what to do here. . . I’ll get back to you.
