Question on making link from dynamic data

Thread began 11/19/2009 9:01 am by roger391472 | Last modified 11/23/2009 11:05 pm by roger391472 | 2436 views | 8 replies


Thanks for the replies Jason and Brian.

OK, here's what I did in the code:

<div id="lft_photo2_thumb"><a href="new_prod_image_large/<?php echo $row_rs_tech_page['new_prod_photo2']; ?>" rel="lightbox" ><img src="new_prod_thumb/<?php echo $row_rs_tech_page['prod_thumb2']; ?>" name="new_prod_thumb_2" width="120" height="80" border="0" id="new_prod_thumb_2" /></a></div>

I think I have the same syntax as what you wrote Jason with the exception of the brackets around<new_prod_image_large> which I'm assuming you were using to point out the need for me to change the data. I tried it both ways just in case but it didn't make any difference. I also tried it the same way Brian has Playful Pooch with slashes I.E. /new_prod_image_large/

Brian - I also tried changing it to class instead of rel and that didn't have any effect either. One thing about that is that I noticed on Playfull Pooch site that you're using the newer "gallery" version of Lightbox but I'm using the old single photo version so would that make a difference?

With the code above I get a 404 error and the photo filename is passed to the url so it appears like this: 2eTrendCoatedlifterFord-calloutLR_2.jpg

As always your help is appreciated.
