I have put a lightbox on a page with 5 photos in it, but when you click on a photo and it is enlarged it gives the option for the viewer to see it back in my flickr account. I dont really want people clicking on this so is their a way to disable this function. Also, in the opposite corner there is a x to close the enlarged box, but you cannot see it (only know it is there when you hover cursor over it) how do I change the colour?

Hi Deborah,

Unfortunately the features you're requesting are not available through the Flickr Lightbox widget. Sorry for the frustration and for any inconvenience this may cause.

OK. Thanks for your reply.

Do you have (or anyone else) any suggestions of other gallery widgets that are compatible I could use at all?

Hi Deborah,

These are the steps for creating a slideshow with Slide:

1) Open the 'widgets' folder.
2) Drag and drop a Slide widget onto your page.
3) Click on the link in the dialog box and you will be taken to slide.com.
4) Create your slideshow using the steps Slide provides.
5) When you are happy with it, copy the HTML embed code and paste it into the dialogue box in Yola.

This is how to add a Smugmug gallery to your page:

1. Register on Smugmug and upload your pictures by creating a gallery.
2. Drag-and-drop the Smugmug widget onto your page.
3. Click on the "Properties" tab on the right-hand sidebar.
4. Delete the existing URL and replace it with your own from Smugmug (or browse Smugmug for the one you want to use), the URL should look something like http://yoursite.smugmug.com/gallery/5...
5. Click on "Apply".

Here is a link to one of our tutorials on Photo Galleries http://www.yola.com/customer-support/...

If this is not what you are looking for, then you can create a DIY Gallery. Let me know if you would like instructions for that.
