Link Captions to Lightbox

Would you like to add link captions to your Soliloquy lightbox images? With Soliloquy this is very easy to do! We’ll walk you through how to create link captions to your Soliloquy Lightbox!


Your first step is to create a new slider. You can follow along with our documentation for creating your first slider.

A new window will open called Edit Item. This is where you can enter all your metadata about the image such as title, links, captions and alt text.

In the caption field, type out your text and select the text you want to link. Then click the link button to open a new popup to enter the link information and if the link should open in a new window.

Insert the link information in the Insert/edit link popup

Once you’ve added the link click Add Link button and the popup will close.

Now that you’ve added the link, click the Load in Lightbox? checkbox and then click Save Metadata to save your changes.
