Topic: Linking from one gallery to another

I wanted to know if it was possible to have a hyperlink from a thumbnail in one gallery to a specific image in another gallery?

I have looked at the multiple galleries examples but these only deal with loading the whole gallery and not specific images

If someone could point me in the right direction, I would be very grateful


Re: Linking from one gallery to another

You can link a main image in a gallery (but not a thumbnail) to a specific image in another gallery.

For the gallery containing the link:
(1) Set imageClickMode="OPEN_URL" (in svBuilder-Pro's 'Customize -> Main Image' section).
(2) Set the links in the linkURL input fields (in svBuilder-Pro's 'Images' tab).
(3) Set the linkTarget (also in svBuilder-Pro's 'Images' tab) to open the link in the same browser window ('_self') or a new one ('_blank').
When a main image is clicked in the gallery, the corresponding linkURL will be opened in the specified linkTarget window.

For the gallery being linked to:
(1) Use the SimpleViewer-Pro API to enable direct linking. Please see here for details and an online example.
(2) You can then use links (for the linkURL entries above) such as to link directly to specific images in the gallery. The number after the # in the URL specifies the image number in the gallery.

Unfortunately, there is no equivalent functionality for thumbnails.
