    Has anyone been to property guys? www.propertyguys.com Click on any house there and a cool slideshow type thing appears. It was done with a gallery program. Does anyone know what it's called?

    I'm trying to make a website with fishing lures on it. There will be a thumbnail of the lure and then when you click on it I'd like a bigger version of the lure to appear. Any suggestions on what program can do this?

    Thanks!!

    Hi. They are just using a script called lightbox. You can get from here.

    Another thing you can look at is greybox
    Similar to the first one, except you can have web pages open like that!

    Well really light box is really easy to setup.

    I would recommend saving it to one location i.e. a subdomain so you can call the css file and JavaScripts from there.

    The only reason I recommend doing so is so you can organize your add-on modules and save disk space.

    !! Remember: if you are going to change the directories of the content i.e. css files, and images, you must edit the files to include relative urls to the media.

    Once this is setup all you really have to do is add the code to include the css and javascript and it will work just fine.

    Let me know If I can be of futher assistance with this feature.

    -Thanks
