Fancybox widget?

Is it possible to add a lightbox widget to the sitebuilder? I am a exprienced programmer and I have yola silver but putting on a lightbox manually is still a pain in the butt when it comes to saving time. I'm sure this problem is worse with people who have nearly no knowledge when it come to programming. Adding a widget for a fancybox/lightbox/greybox/e.t.c would be very helpful I believe. And please don't add a lightbox, those can only display images. add something like a fancybox or a grey box. Pictures to tell you what I mean.

Hello everyone

Good news! We do have Flickr Gallery (aka Lightbox) for you to incorporate onto your site. It's located in your "Multimedia" folder. I've attached as screenshot to show you.



For instructions on how to add this to your site, please visit our tutorial: Flickr Galleries

However, I am just reading that you wish to incorporate other things other than images to your modal box. Unfortunately, this will not be possible. I will pass this information on to our development team to consider but I must be honest with you.. I don't believe this idea will be implemented any time soon.

Adil, I made these pictures using Paint.net. It is a great free image editing tool.

But, a fancy box is much better than the Flickr lightbox. fancy box is really cool, and here is the website with all the JavaScript for the fancy box: http://fancybox.net/ Do you know why it's better than Flickr lightbox? Because you can put text into it and much more than just an image.

Another idea is to use the kind of lightboxes that are on the Yola iste builder. You know the boxes that pop up for like a new page, and edit title, and all that stuff. It has the screen fade out and there is an X at the top. Just like the login box on this forum. Screen shot of the lightbox I am talking about:

Yola Site builder Lightbox


Get Satisfaction Login Lightbox


You see those boxes? Well, this would be a great feature!! This may even be better than fancy box!
