CMS & WordPress
I have a Wordpress site that has one featured image per post. Often, that image is exactly the same width as the maximum content width for a post, so it displays 1:1. Sometimes however, it's a much larger image.
What I'd really like to achieve is this: when the source image is much larger than can be displayed, I'd like the user to be able to click the post image and have it popup (maybe in a lightbox?) the full resolution copy, which they can then click off when done.
Can anyone help me with this?
Some themes do this automatically, that is any image link that is clickable can open in a lightbox rather than in a new page. Some lightbox plugins can also be added to a plainer theme without this feature and will add that lightbox function. It is a bit hard to give advice not knowing how your current theme operates, but yes you can add lightboxes into a theme and yes an oversized image can be displayed but you may need to monkey about with things to get it to work.
