Hi, Katelin,

You can add your own button to close a lightbox, but you can't remove the default X button. 

  • You could use layers instead, and set them up so they look like lightboxes. However, those wouldn't cover the entire Player like a lightbox does, so any player-level items would still be accessible.

Yes, you can turn CC off and on in lightbox mode. Just create your own button with a trigger to toggle the caption variable:

Yes, you're not the only one who'd like the option to remove the default close-lightbox X. That's why some folks use a layer that looks like a lightbox.

Another option to to jump to a slide (not lightboxed) that doesn't show the usual Player features. On a given slide, you can't turn off the Title in the Player (if you have one), but you can hide the Prev and Next buttons, the Menu, etc. Of course, that slide wouldn't have the other slide "underneath" it like a lightbox would. But you would have more control about what the user has to do before they can "close" the slide and return to the starting point.

My way around this was taking a screen shot of the base page, cropping the image and using that as the background for my layers meant to be lightboxes. Within that layer you can insert a rectangle shape acting like the lightbox screen. Then within that inserted box, you can go to town on what you wish the lightbox to do. Now you can put your own triggers to replace that X.
