<h2>How to Use:</h2>
<h3>Part 1 - Setup</h3>
<li>jQuery lightbox v0.5 uses the jQuery Library. You will need to include these two Javascript files in your header.
<pre><code>&lt;script type=&quot;text/javascript&quot; src=&quot;jquery.js&quot;&gt;&lt;/script&gt;
&lt;script type=&quot;text/javascript&quot; src=&quot;lightbox.js&quot;&gt;&lt;/script&gt;
<li>Include the Lightbox CSS file (or append your active stylesheet with the Lightbox styles).
<pre><code>&lt;link rel=&quot;stylesheet&quot; href=&quot;css/lightbox.css&quot; type=&quot;text/css&quot; media=&quot;screen&quot; /&gt;
<li>Check the CSS and make sure the referenced <code>prevlabel.gif</code> and <code>nextlabel.gif</code> files are in the right location. Also, make sure the <code>loading.gif</code> and <code>closelabel.gif</code> files as referenced near the top of the <code>lightbox.js</code> file are in the right location.</li>
<h3>Part 2 - Activate</h3>
<li>Add a <code>class="lightbox"</code> attribute to any link tag to activate the lightbox. For example:
<pre><code>&lt;a href=&quot;images/image-1.jpg&quot; class=&quot;lightbox&quot; title=&quot;my caption&quot;&gt;image #1&lt;/a&gt;
<em>Optional: </em>Use the <code>title</code> attribute if you want to show a caption. </li>
<li>If you have a set of related images that you would like to group, follow step one but additionally include a group name in the rel attribute. For example:
<pre><code>&lt;a href=&quot;images/image-1.jpg&quot; class=&quot;lightbox&quot; rel=&quot;roadtrip&quot;&gt;image #1&lt;/a&gt;
&lt;a href=&quot;images/image-2.jpg&quot; class=&quot;lightbox&quot; rel=&quot;roadtrip&quot;&gt;image #2&lt;/a&gt;
&lt;a href=&quot;images/image-3.jpg&quot; class=&quot;lightbox&quot; rel=&quot;roadtrip&quot;&gt;image #3&lt;/a&gt;
No limits to the number of image sets per page or how many images are allowed in each set. Go nuts!</li>
