Put colorbox directory into your SilverStripe root directory.
Colorbox is triggered by adding the appropriate 'class' or 'rel' attribute to your links If you define classes in your editor.css file, they should show up in the TinyMCE style dropdown.
Giving the link a title/description will show up as a caption on the box.
<a class="photo" href="myphoto.jpg" title="My photo"><img src="myphoto_thumb.jpg"></a> <a href="myphoto1.jpg" rel="slide"><img src="myphoto1_thumb.jpg"></a> <a href="myphoto2.jpg" rel="slide"><img src="myphoto2_thumb.jpg"></a>
<a class="youtube" href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMDhyDFqtz8">Watch video</a>
Any type of youtube link should work.
It is possible to customise the look of the colorbox. You will need to create your own theme files.
- ...appropriate images...
Some example themes can be obtained from the colorbox original dowload at http://www.jacklmoore.com/colorbox.
Link goes to image/video, rather than showing in box
The box shrinks down to a small shape.
You may have assigned the wrong class to the link.
