Slideshows on Flutterby.net

2011-07-22 21:20:09.986468+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

Looking for feedback: For a variety of reasons, I've abandoned Mediawiki for Flutterby.net. Which made it easy, when Charlene made the suggestion this morning, for me to implement a new feature. On pages such as this year's McClure to Kehoe hike, or our most recent visit to Malakoff Diggins, there's now a little "zoom" icon under each picture. Clicking on the picture takes you to the page with the different available sizes of the picture, but clicking on the little icon pops up a Lightbox 2 view of all of the pictures on the page.

So here's the feedback question: First, are the "next" and "prev" functions obvious enough, and, second, any suggestions for a better icon to do this with?

The zoom icon is clear enough on my iPad, but I can't find the next and previous at all. I'll give it a look on the "real" computer tomorrow morning.

Ahh. Looking at this from the big computer, I see what I initially wasn't sure about. The icon is pretty much unclickable (with the page in both "tall" and "wide" modes) without zooming on the iPad, so I never even got to the slide-show. The next-prev, once I got to the slideshow, are obvious enough, but I've seen many sites with Lightbox slideshows before. I'm too familiar with them to be able to say for sure.
