Making a Picture Gallery

There are several good plugins for making fancy galleries of images for GetSimple Sites. I am going to use the simplest solution to make a gallery of clickable thumbnails. First I have installed the FancyBox Plugin from the GS site. then I upload my images and my thumbnails through the Files Tab.

There is a sample Image Gallery in the footer of the default template so I copy and paste the html from that template into the Editor panel for this page. I need to be sure I have included the styling, in this case class="thumbs"

Then I go through the images making the thumbnail link to the larger image and adjusting the sizes, and each time in the Link Properties Panel, on the Advanced Tab setting the ID to fb (for fancybox)

Done. Totally easy and simple. It isn't just for galleries. You can make any image or any link clickable with fancybox.
