Hello Everyone

I am learning to use Orchard, and so far so good, I am building a site for a customer and we want to display thumbnail images that link to a lightbox overlay rather than a another page.

Does anyone have any advice for me

Hi Steven,

Orchard can't do this out of the box and there are no modules available at the moment that can do this. New module are being written all the time and I know a few people are working on image galleries, so one of these may help you in the future.

There's also the option to write your own module, and at the moment that might be your best bet.

Good luck,

Creating a module is the most elegant option but creating and configuring contenttypes with custom shape templates can also do the job! (
