Open Envira gallery lightbox by link


I like to open an Envira lightbox by a link from a column.

I did something like that with a flipbook this way:

In your text element insert this:
[flipbook-popup id="cantharel_magazine_zomer_2019"] [/flipbook-popup]

Insert a v2 button element, style it and then add a custom class flipbook-trigger

And then you add the JS code:


Is such a think also possible for an Envira gallery?

I have this test page:

The 3 interactive columns I want to link to an Envira gallery.

The big image below has the result I like to achieve but this is just a linked image with this code but it opens the lightbox the way I want it for the columns.

[envira-link id="265"]<img src=""/>[/envira-link]

Can you please help me to get this?

Regards, Carel

Hello @cvdw,

Thanks for writing to us.

Please have a look at the documentation of Envira Gallery to learn more about how to open a lightbox gallery.

You can also use our classic shortcode for it

Hope it helps

I have read those and know this but this is not helping my out to open the Envira lightbox by a link in my interactive column…

Hello @cvdw,

What you are trying to do with the columns and with the Envira Gallery is not possible. Please switch your HTML tag of the column to <div>.

And then use a Raw Content element and insert this:

 [envira-link id="265"]<div class="column-link"></div>[/envira-link]

You will then need a custom CSS to position the class selector column-link to be positioned as absolute originating from 0 pixel on top and on the right. The width and height need to be 100% so that it will occupy the whole column.
