eggs =

This section might have additional lines if you have other add-ons already installed. Just add the raptus.article.lightbox on a separate line, like this:

eggs =

$ bin/buildout

Then go to the “Add-ons” control panel in Plone as an administrator, and install or reinstall the “raptus.article.default” product.

Note that if you do not use the raptus.article.default package you have to include the zcml of raptus.article.lightbox either by adding it to the zcml list in your buildout or by including it in another package’s configure.zcml.



Navigate to the “Components” tab of your article and select one of the lightbox components and press “save and view”. Note that at least one image has to be contained in the article in which this component is active.
