Hi there,

In the previous versions of Indexhibit, I have created a table of thumbnails that link to Vimeo videos in a Thickbox overlay using code like this:

  1. <a class="thickbox iframe" href="player.vimeo.com/video/16042239" width="400" height="225" frameborder="0">click</…;

I want to replicate this in Indexhibit 2.0. I've tried using the same code, but when the videos open up, they take up the entire window rather than the height/width I've tried to specify. Does anyone have guidance on how to modify this code/fix this issue?

Thank you very much!

NOTE: I apologize if that code was screwy; this may be more helpful:

  1. <a class="thickbox iframe" href="player.vimeo.com/video/42791107" width="700" height="393" frameborder="0">IMAGE</…;

Thank you!

thickbox does not yet exist as a format for indexhibit.
But, why don't you upload your vimeo links using the vimeo uploader button?

Thanks for your response! Yes, I've gone the (much) easier route of using the Vimeo uploader button on the front page here:

Link #1

But the artist I am working with prefers a layout separated into sections, each with headings, in a grid 3 across like this:

Link #2

Can you perhaps see a way to more easily accomplish that second layout while still using the Vimeo uploader option? I wasn't able to see how right away, but then again I may not be looking hard enough.

Thanks again!

CORRECTION: Those links are faulty. They are as follows:

Link #1: matroe.com/
Link #2: matroe.com/…

I have had trouble inserting links in the Forum posts; I apologize!

Good grief:

Link #2: matroe.com/index.php/test/

have you tried the Visual Index format with the Overlay set as the on-click option?

Yes, I've got that exact format working on the site's main page right now (matroe.com). It functions beautifully!

The trouble is that I can't see how to manipulate the layout of the visual index w/overlay such that it resembles what I've created on this page, matroe.com/index.php/test/ -- a grid three across with headings dividing the thumbnails into categories.

Is it possible to to manipulate the layout of the page but still use the visual index w/overlay function?

...it is but you need to hardcode things the way you want (that is assuming you know how to code)
Switch off text processing and paste your code in the text area.
