Hi, I've setup a gallery solution based on the brilliant HOW TO: Create an image gallery using CCK and Views (not Image Module). However, I would like to keep thumbnails to link to the actual node (to enable comments, rating etc) - and activate Thickbox gallery view through a separate gallery-wide "View slideshow" link. I've looked briefly at the Thickbox code, and it seems if that I can remove the thickbox class from the images and keep the rel attribute I might be close to the solution. Then have a link with thickbox class set, that points to the first image. But I'm only speculating here and haven't come up with a clean solution yet. Any ideas on how this can be achieved?
As for now, I have image thumbnails that trigger thickbox - and titles that link to the corresponding node. But I think that might be unintuitive for the user and it doesn't encourage valued node-activities such as rating and commenting on images.
