I have a custom content type 'portfolio'. When at a portfolio node I would like to show one image, and if clicked on, lightbox2 will overlay, and then let the user scroll through a set of images. This would seems to be an obvious goal, but I can't see how to set that up. If I have one image field, which allows multiple images, then all of the images load to the node by default. If I instead create multiple image fields, say 1-5, but hide 2-5, and select "group by node ID", only the first image overlays.
Am I missing something? How can I achieve a node with 1 image, which, when clicked on, allows the user to scroll through multiple images assigned to that field or that node?

I'm having the same problem, I have multiple images uploaded to one field, and can't display one image linking to a lightbox2 slideshow of all the images from the node.

Is this a lightbox issue or possibly a views issue though?

Same problem here. I must have checked my settings a dozen times.

Did you try rel="lightbox[group]"?

Did you ever find a solution to this problem, I often wanted to this but still don't know how to go about it.

Any news on this?
I did this in D6 - and now I'm wondering how to deal with it in D7 :-S

I'm currently trying to figure this out as well.

Does anybody know if there's a way to make this work as the author of this issue described?

Yes, this need work, current the content is grouped by field, if you have a field with multiple values, they all are grouped, if have 2 fields with multiple values, they form 2 groups.

Once https://drupal.org/node/1751666 is commited, i will work on a new setting on it related to grouping:

  • field: group or not all images from same field
  • node: group or not all images from same node
  • page: group or not all images in the page

Is this waht you want ?
