Google Maps Widget
[resolved] Initiate lightbox via text-based link? (4 posts)

    So, I have a ton of maps all over my site, but there's already too much information, so I want people to see a standard text-based link and have them click on it to load the respective map into the lightbox. I'd need to surround a chunk of text with a shortcode and that chunk of text would also have a class applied to it to offset a map icon.

    Is this possible? Also, I don't use any widgets on the site, so as to utilize as much space as possible --there is no sidebar and I have removed get_sidebar from the entire site's core PHP files.

    One other thing.. I use Super Sticky Footer, so there can't be any vertical margin use or it throws the whole thing out of whack... pretty sure I could hack the CSS to substitute padding for margin, though.

    This seems like a pretty standard aspect of general need, but this plugin is the closest I could find to matching the functionality I need. Actually, I won't be the person needing it, but the relatively unexperienced that will have to update the site.

    Thanks in advance and yeah, 5-stars to you if I can get this working! Sheeot, I'd even send you a 6-pack (or coffee) via PayPal as a double thanks if desired!

    Unfortunately, at the moment, that's not possible with our plugin. We have shortcodes on our to-do list but it's not a 5 minute job so ... :(

    Right on, and thanks for the reply. I think I found a solution with Lightbox Plus Colorbox - https://wordpress.org/support/topic/lightbox-wont-load-agoda-maps-external-content?replies=1

    Keep up the good work!
