Portfolio does not have the Lightbox Feature by default, but we can do this with some custom code.
Portfolio page lightbox means that when you click on a project in the portfolio page, it shows the lightbox, without having to go to the detailed portfolio page.
1. Create Portfolio Page
First, create your portfolio page and sub-pages. Here I take the example of Work Page, with Page URL /work
2. Install Lightbox Code
Next you need to download this lightbox code and install it.
(Download > Extract > Open instructions.html > Do step 1 & step 2)
3. Create “Portfolio Lightbox Page”
Note that the above code will not convert the Portfolio Page project directly into Lightbox, but we need to create another page > Insert Image Blocks or Gallery Section to recreate the Portfolio Page created in step 1 > And we can convert these blocks into Lightbox.
Add Page > Select “Blank Page” and name “Portfolio”
Edit “Portfolio” page > Add Gallery Section (or Image Blocks), here I use Gallery Section
and insert sub-page in Portfolio Page (created in Step 1)
How to fill in the link? Read Step 4
4. Insert Links
First you need to check the sub-page url in the Portfolio Page created in step 1.
Assuming the url here is /work/web-design/project-one
Go back to step 3, click on the image on the left (you can change the image so it same as the sub-page in Portfolio), then enter the link on the right according to the structure.
Repeat for other Projects.
If you use Image Blocks, do similar!
Access Portfolio Lightbox Page (you created in Step 3), and click on a project. You will see a Lightbox!
