I'm looking for a solution to this issue.

 

Go to http://Digitize Design.net/pm

When you login you will see a list of projects. If you click the project title it takes you to another page that displays all the project information. What I'm looking to do is when you click the project title instead of going to that page it would open that page in a lightbox type effect. What would be the best way to do this?

There is, however your looking for lightbox when you should be looking for thickbox. That said I have just had a lookat the website and it would seem the project is discontinued, however there are alternatives out there. This one looks quite good as you can display html and is very similar to lightbox

Thought you could only use lightbox to overlay images?

No jQuery is a library, lightbox was a script that made use of it, the things you can do are almost limitless.

 

There are many scripts that make use of jQuery, which is what confuses people. One in particular for text

You can overlay text, youtube videos, files, etc..

Yeah I know that, however you link was to lightbox LOL. fancybox is another jquery plugin which does pretty much the job asked for above ;)

Looking very nice Nathan. Should implement small (maybe 400 x 400) Thumbnails of a preview of the project or something like that ;)

What do you mean? There are no images of the project, it's text.

Im with ridwan. Many projects have screenshots etc. Think how many times people tell you something is broken and you ask for a screenshot as well.

 

Would also change the add project to a lightbox popup unless you plan to add a lot more detail to it?

Yeah that's probably a good idea as well. Going to add some more detail to it such as: department, priority, ect...
