New to this forum, but not to Dreamweaver, a thousand thanks in advance!
For 3 days now I've been trying to use Lightbox via extensions manager in Dreamweaver CS4 to recode my images into scaleable closeups. Three times I've got it to work, no problem, except the 'close' and 'loading' images don't appear. They are in the same folder as the 'previous' and 'next' gifs, the .js and .css seems to be linking in the correct place, but still no-go. Have googled the problem, found someone with an identical one where the solution definitely had to do with linking/location, but their site was no longer live for me to compare to my own.
ANYHOW, fourth go recoding the same site, and this time a site-wide link check revealed the offending gif files. GLEE! I thought, and re-linked 'close' and 'loading' to their corresponding gifs. Now the entire lightbox structure has gone belly up.
I KNOW this is a simple solve, but I can't for the life of me find it. If there's any way I could not have to recode a fifth time and still not get my closing/loading buttons, well, I'd be Thankful with a capital T.
(background, this is a website for a masters dissertation, it's being marked tomorrow 8am Scotland time, and though they already have a previous version with outdated scrolly pop-out windows, I'd be a thousand shades of grateful if I could figure out this revision and re-post the site with the improvements before it gets marked)
I haven't used Lightbox, but I used Colorbox, and when my buttons weren't showing, this is how I ended up solving it.
