Changing the Light Box Position

Changing the Light Box Position

Have you ever had the situation where you create a link to a light box low down on your page (particularly when it is opened in a frame), and when you scroll down and select the light box it opens at the top of the page out of view?, Or perhaps you just want it to open in a different place in the window?

I have had that a lot, here is an example of what it looks like when it opens in the wrong place: View Screenshot

The light box is not in view.

Here is a workaround to shift the position of the light box when it appears:

Works with WebPlus X5, X6, X7 and X8

You can play with the parameters to shift the position of the light box the caption box and close button.

When you now click the light box link the light box opens in view instead of at the top of the page.

Example of the same light box above with this fix applied: View Screenshot

You will probably need to adjust the close button position by adjusting the margin parameters in the #wplightbox_closediv style section.

I hope that this was useful to you.
