Hi
I just bought the HOT Lightbox module. I want to know how I can embed the module in my articles and if I can embed more than one module in an article?

Please help.
Thanks
Tristan

I have tried to do the same with the Sportal template; the lightbox appears both in the usual spot (user2) and the article. How do I get it to appear only in article?

Do I just create a new user syntax so that I can use {loadposition userxxx} and have the light box appear in the article only?

Thanks.

You must create new module position in file templateDetails.xml. Add line

<position>whatever</position>

between <positions> and </positions>

Then use this position to show module in article.

Hi - thanks very much. It worked! I am able to embed more than one module in one article; however a couple of issues came up:

1. Close X picture as well as the arrows do not appear in the lightbox: here's example...

Should there be specific graphic files in hotlightbox moved or modified? Any work around solutions on this one?

2. In the same article, when the 2nd module is inserted, the number of pictures actually include the first module's numbers. The 1st Module then shows the same information as the 2nd module. The article seem to treat both modules as one gallery instead of separate gallery after I did insert two separate modules {loadposition photos} then 2nd one {loadposition may11}.

The thumbnails (have to clear thumbnails directory if changed parameters) seem to be tied in with each other's module as well.

Is there any work around solutions or that is just it?

The other solution is to set up separate article and have the 2nd module inserted and the number of images is then separate and on it's own.

That's all for now.

1. In Global Joomla configuration enable SEF with mod_rewrite or disable SEF. Another solution is to edit file /modules/mod_hot_lightbox/js/jquery.lightbox-0.5.min.js and enter direct links to the images, in example, change
modules/mod_hot_lightbox/images/lightbox-ico-loading.gif

to
http://www.yoursite.com/modules/mod_hot_lightbox/images/lightbox-ico-loading.gif

2. You can use only one instance of the module per page. Hot Photo Gallery plugin can be used more than once per page.
