I wanted to add a deep linking behavior to the portfolio gallery image popups as well as each popup have a social sharing feature accompanied. I noticed that the latest version of prettyPhoto allows for both of these features. I updated prettyPhoto and did some digging to find how the links were being built for the galleries. Needless to say everything is still working; however, it is working in the same capacity. meaning, there is still not a deep link being built – at least one that will work when used and the social features are non-existent. The prettyPhoto parameters that must be enabled are indeed enabled.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
Afaik Flashlight supports Deeplinking out of the box – eg on this page: http://www.kriesi.at/themes/flashlight/portfolio-item/masonry-portfolio-example-flexible/ you can open the first image by clicking on the image above the “Supercool Wallpaper headline” or you can use following link to open it directly in the lightbox: Link
thank you for the info. I noticed that there was a difference in the url structure – my version of flashlight was forming the ajax url call with a “#lightbox” – however your example was using the exclamation “#!lightbox”. A reverted the version of prettyPhoto back and added the exclamation to the url structure and it still didn’t work. From there I changed the actual url deeplink from the default “portfolio-item” to my own custom link. Now everything seems to work. I’m not sure if I uncovered a bug or something else weird, but i figured i would respond with my findings so it could possibly help someone else.
again thanks for the response!
