    Hi all,

    I am using SF Cpmmunity 3.6 (downloaded a week ago) and I have followed a number of articles on how to change/customise the image gallery by specifiying the gallery template. I have downloaded the external templates zip where I got the GalleryListView Template. This is fine and I have it working, however I want the lightbox template and it is nowhere to be found?!?

    I have followed these articles and cannot find the lightbox gallery template where they suggest:

    Am I going crazy? or am I just missing something really huge here?

    Any help is greatly appreciated guys.

    Cheers

    Jo

    Hello Jodie,

    The template you are looking for can be found at \Sitefinity\Admin\ControlTemplates\Libraries\Modes of the external templates archive you have downloaded. Then you can map the template directly through ImageGallery control designer using ItemListTemplatePath  and SingleItemTemplatePath properties( under Advanced >> Template Paths category)

    All the best,

    Hello,

    Bizarrely enough I was stumped on exactly the same thing for the last couple of days!  Working great now thanks to stumbling upon this post.

    Just in case anyone followed this excellent article and then got stuck at the end, your embedded image tag should end up looking like this:

     <sfLib:ImageGallery id="ImageGalleryControl" runat="server" GalleryTemplateMode="Lightbox" ItemListTemplatePath="~/Custom/Public/ControlTemplates/Libraries/Images/GalleryLightboxList.ascx" />

    Now the lightbox works like it should.

    Thanks all,

    James
