I am looking for a way to activate a thickbox via an extra button on a page. Preferably this should be a general button.
The exact situation is like this:
I have a single picture that opens a larger version or a whole gallery in a thickbox. To make it more clear there is more to see I want to add a button that activates the thickbox. At the momement I just make a link to the (first) image with the tickbox class en the gallery rel. There are to problems with this solution:
1.it requires a lot of manual linking
2.it ads an extra version of the specific image to the gallery without description
The live example http://www.jurisverbeelding.nl/foto/reportage/bo-kuylenburg (the button is the arrow with text “Bekijk project”)
Is there a way to activate any thickbox on a page with a general button?
