Lightbox presentation for mixed media

Everyone is familiar with the "Lightbox" pop-ups for images and videos, from using Facebook, eBay or Amazon. I have long wanted to implement on our site, but I've been stymied by the complexity. But I'm finally starting to make some headway! I've implemented over on the test site - take a look and tell me what you think: ... 872#p22872

There are still some bugs to work out, but I think I can get it all working. I'm interested in your feedback - please try on your computer, your tablet, your phone - Apple, Samsung, Kindle, etc. Tell me what works, and what doesn't.

Once I get this sorted out, I'm going to do some rearranging and then dump a lot of saved up content. Hopefully traffic will pick up!

(Will, moving your comment from the test environment to the production site...)

Garsh, thanks Will! :D Did you just not hear audio for the mp3 (labeled "this is an audio") - or, did you not hear sound for the videos either? Could it be that audio is not working on the computer you are using, i.e., for another site?

If audio *is* working for another site, let me know what browser you are using, and I'll try to replicate. Thanks for the feeback!

Dan, after a little more investigation the audio for the video and audio file seem to work fine, I had to plug my headphones in to hear it so i think its the speakers on this computer that are defective. I think your tests are a success!

Kool, Will! It's still buggy, though, and not quite ready for prime time. e.g., on my iPhone only page 1 of the pdf displays, whether using Chrome or Safari. More head-scratchin' to do! :roll:
