Hi, I'm trying to link text links to a corresponding RS slide that is contained in a colorbox lightbox, using the ajax method. (Example, text links "cat" "dog" "bird" link to pic of each animal in a slider gallery. The slider gallery is full screen and contained in a lightbox).

I've enabled deeplinking, and tried linking directly to the ID, but it doesn't work. What steps do I need to take to make this work? Thanks

    1. You may use goTo public method to go to specific slide. More info in API section of docs.

    2. You may use startSlideId slider option to set starting slide.

    3. When you enable deeplinking you can access slide only by adding #fixedpart-SLIDE_INDEX to markup. Element ID won't work.

    Hey Dmitry,
    thanks for the quick response, apologies for my poorly written question. I had read the docs before posting question, and decided to try the deeplinking method. I was using the SLIDE_INDEX (not ID, mistake in my question) for the link. I've still not been able to get this working with the colorbox. I've successfully used both the startSlideID and goTo method from the API, and will use one of those. If I decide that deep links are important, I will return to this later. Thanks again!
