[resolved] Automatically launch slideshow from a button on the page? (2 posts)

    I was wondering if there was an easy way to open the lightbox and launch/start the slideshow automatically from an additional button on the page.
    eg: with javascript or some clever way I haven't thought of.

    My test URL is http://goo.gl/uLfPJ

    Currently I have hacked a method of doing it with a 'view slideshow' button that links to and opens up an additional image at the front of the slideshow that is not part of the main galleries thumbnails.

    Obviously the two downsides to this are

    • It adds an extra unnecessary image to the slideshow
    • The slideshow has to be set to autostart, which mat not be ideal in every case

    Apologies if this is more of a feature request for slb v2 and many thanks for the great plugin.

    A link that is part of the slideshow needs to be clicked to launch the lightbox and slideshow in the current version of SLB, but I'll keep this in mind for a future update.

    Thanks for the feedback :)
