    I am building a portfolio page with custom fields for the title and tme small image location. I am sure there is a better way to do this. But for now this will work.

    I am trying to put lightbox, so when you click on the image the lightbox takes over and enlarge the image.

    this is the code:
    <div class="workBoxFirst">
    <?php $image = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'webWork_1', true); ?>
    <?php $link = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'webWorkLink_1', true); ?>
    " rel="lightbox[]"><img src="<?php echo($image);?>" alt="recent work" />
    <span><?php $title = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'webWorkTitle_1', true); ?> <?php echo($title);?> </span>

    I am not sure how to how to link it to lightbox, I have rel="lightbox[]", does anyone know what I can put into the rel to make it to work?

    Couple of things mate:

    1) The rel invocation doesn't have square brackets. Its just


    2) This needs to be placed in the anchor tag around the image you want to pop out, along with the standard href variable that leads to the file. I can't tell what you're writing there from so few lines, but wherever you're generating the , just nip #1 in there.

    Hope that helps!
