"Click to enlarge" Button

  • Creator

    Hi Jason,

    Right now, using lightbox to display image enlargements and slideshows, I have the greying hover effect to indicate that the picture can be enlarged. Apparently, this is not obvious enough and I’ve been asked to add a button in the upper right corner of the clickable images (in addition to keeping the greying hover effect). What’s the easiest way to do this, preferably in CSS?

    Thanks, Mike

    Yup, I’d say stick to CSS.

    For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    .element-slider .slide .image-link { ... }
    .element-slider .slide .image-link:hover { ... }

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
