Hi Dimi,
I am already using royal slider on two websites successfully. I have a rather general question regarding a new project, which I wanted to ask before buying the third license. Is it possible to trigger a slider from a simple text-link or button so that it appears not on a new page but as overlay/lightbox on the current page? Would I have to use an additional plugin for the lightbox-effect?
Thank you

    There is no option to load the slider dynamically into a dialog. You'll need some JavaScript to implement it. Also, It will be not SEO optimized, as the gallery is not on the page until user clicks on a link.
