Hey Troy,

First, you are right on with the repeat region, but you need to alter the name of the group based on sets of threes... so a little modulo operation will be needed along with a system to increment for each group.

<!-- First set the group increment number -->

<?php $groupincrement 1?>

<!-- Now set the row increment number (after every third row will later increase the group increment number by 1) -->

<?php $rowincrement 1?>

<!-- Now, begin the loop -->

<?php do { ?>

<a href="images/<?php echo $imagename?>" rel="lightbox[group<?php echo $groupincrement?>]"><?php echo $row_image['imagename']; ?></a>

<!-- We will now increase the row increment -->
<?php ++$rowincrement?>

<!-- We will now test the row to see if it is the third item and if it is, we will add an increment to the group -->

<?php if ($rowincrement == 0) {

<?php  } while condition met ?>

Best regards,
