hi all,

im looking to modify the image_gallery for the following.

i'd like to change the link of each thumbnail from "open lightbox" to on:hover show a box with some text and a link.
im thinking i can just change it so that each <li> on:hover shows a div, and inside that div could be the "caption" where my client can enter their small text and a link to a case study PDF.

i cant find where that "link to lightbox" is at the moment though to remove it... anybody know where? i wasting my time using the image_gallery for this? would it be easier to just create a new page type?

thanks in advance for any light you can shed on this.
