I'm using Shadowbox on a kiosk site. Clicking on a Map link opens a static, JPEG map. I'd like load a button or text with a link to Print that map at the large size.

I tried adding a link to the "title" of the image. No luck. I saw, on Shadowbox's site, some ways to add a caption; but still, I doubt if I could just add a Print link to that caption.

Any ideas? Is there something I should use instead of Shadowbox? Colorbox? Here is one of the pages I am working on:

So, searching around I found a page to compare different popup box libraries. That'd be a good place to start looking for another library, as shadowbox lists itself as not having caption support. Any captions will be work arounds, which can break if you try to upgrade it at some point in the future. Just a quick peak into the libraries I found Lightbox2 which indicates that it supports links in captions, but I'm sure there are others among that list.

Thank you!

Wow! I had no idea there were so many variations. Lightbox 2, with captions and even links in captions, should do the trick for me.

Thank you!
