Yes, but there is alot on the fancy box page. Confusing. Can you be clearer?

There is a lot you can do in Fancybox3 but in order to get the finish you want you are going to have to learn how to use it. That only comes from research and getting familiar with the coding. Between "Untie Google" and the fancybox web site there is stacks of information and ideas. Yanis, the originator, did not design this as plug and play. You have to know what you are doing and then be able adapt to Web Builder. Coding from v1 to v3 and even in updates to v3 are different in many ways as he constantly strives to streamline the package. The fancyapps forum can be very helpful as can Yanis himself but be wary as he assumes knowledge, something he has plenty of.
From my own experience I decided not to use the integration into Web Builder as set out above and that way I was able to use the more advanced coding I gleamed from the web and other sources. Learning how to use adding to page html, adding html objects and using the File Publisher will greatly assist with adapting the full Fancybox experience. If you have the patience the end results are worth it.

@mitch1957
What you are asking, is not frequently asked feature, so I do not have standard solution for this.
Most third party lightboxes that support this functionality require a commercial license, so that is why I cannot integrate it into the software.
You can integrate Fancybox 3 into WWB yourself as described here:
viewtopic.php?f=10&t=80753

However, you will still need to make change to the configuration to make it work like you want.

If you are not familiar with coding then maybe you can use this as alternative?

Or else if you can find another lightbox that has this functionality and is free to use, then let me know so I can maybe add support for it in the future.
