Topic: SUCCESS! Multiple galleries on same / multiple pages using js + iframe
I've seen a lot of questions on this, so I thought I'd share a successful project: http://www.jamesbrowncamp.com
It's a photo site from this year's Burning Man, and each category page has several individual galleries. I tried for ages to get the iframes to open up using Shadowbox.js (no luck), switched to Mediabox Advanced (slightly more sluggish, but it works!). The effect is as follows:
-click on the gallery link
-screen dims, transparent iframe (100% width 70% height) opens
-dedicated html page for specified gallery opens within iframe (100% of frame)
-click above/below the gallery to exit
It's pretty cool. The code is all there, browse as necessary. Happy to help if anyone needs it.
