Project Description

This is a simple jQuery/Javascript project that will add a lightbox to a Wordpress-based site. There are plenty of existing lightbox plugins and scripts available, but none that do exactly what we are looking for.

The lightbox needs to be able to contain simple HTML rather than just a typical image that most allow. The HTML will include image slices that are linked to different offsite URLs. This page can be a page within the Wordpress framework or an HTML page in the root directly.

The lightbox must display when the Home page loads, rather than when a button or link is clicked. Additionally the lightbox function must use a cookie so that it only displays once per session for each user. On subsequent visits to Home page during a session, the lightbox will not load.

The lightbox script code must be compatible with existing Wordpress code. In other words, there cannot be any Javascript conflicts with any framework that is already installed. The lightbox must be compatible with the current version of Wordpress and be coded so that it will not break with future Wordpress framework updates.

No design work is required, but CSS must be included so that the look and feel of the lightbox is customizable and it must be able to be adjusted for size.

Finally, the lightbox must function on mobile devices, including but not limited to: iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Android devices. It must also be compatible all modern browsers, as well as IE7 and IE 8. There is no mobile version of the Wordpress theme and the theme is not Responsive, so that will make the task much easier.

To be considered we would prefer that you be able to show examples of this type of work. If you have something like this already coded or even something similar we will be happy to simply "buy" the script/functionality from you.

Once the project is awarded, you must be able to provide a development link on your own hosting environment for our review and approval.
