Support » Plugins » Lightbox type effect to support a HTML/jQuery image map

  • Hi all,

    First time poster here so forgive me for being a noob, I haven’t used WP extensively before and I’m helping a friend with their existing WP blog.

    I have designed an interactive map menu using the technique described here: tutorial and demo (essentially each region of the map has it’s own image for both selected and non-selected states and an image map and jQuery is used to toggle the selection of each area)

    What I want to achieve is to have this pop up in a lightbox style box when you go to the blog homepage, and then the areas selected on the map dictate the categories of posts that are displayed.

    I had created this using plain HTML and jQuery (without a lightbox type plugin – just doing the fade manually) but now I need to integrate it with their website – although I imagine I may have to code this completely differently for WP.

    So my main questions are:

    1. Is there a lightbox type WP plugin that supports all of the content I need (HTML image map and a few other buttons and options)?
    2. Would the most appropriate plugin then support the jQuery method I have used from the tutorial above or is there a better way of achieving this?
    3. How can I get this to automatically popup for the homepage of the blog?

    I hope I’ve included enough information, if you have any questions just let me know.

    Thanks a lot,

  • Did you ever find an answer? I am looking for something that will let me do lightbox with an imagemap. Haven’t found anything.
