My homepage currently has a masonry layout. Each “item” is actually an individual post. Currently, when someone clicks on the item it opens up a new page, the viewer can then click on the item again and it takes them to the affiliate link where they can purchase it. What I’d like, is that when the viewer clicks on an item from the homepage, that it opens the post into a new window that is smaller. That way, they do not lose their place on the infinite scroll masonry layout and it will also look cleaner.
I found this onine tutorial using the Easy Modal plugin with the Essential Grid layout to achieve this result.
Can this somehow be achieved using the Easy Modal plugin with the Masonry Layout?
An alternate option would be finding a lightbox plugin that opens a post into a lightbox but then allows you to enter a custom outside link on the image (otherwise it’s a dead end) but I haven’t had any luck finding a plugin that allows you to do this. Any ideas??
I got your requirement here. But currently with only our plugin this can’t be done. Our plugin do support light box but it is for image only. If you want to show the post content in lightbox, you need to customize your theme’s single.php file as well to remove header, footer and sidebar section. And also, you need to customize our plugin to open the detail link in popup.
Due to the complication of this requirement i suggest you to do hire or take help from developer for this customization.
