Section 2: TileBox jQuery HTML Structure.

This section should be read along with the example files also contained in the download package.

A simple TileBox HTML structure includes three parts: Control Buttons – Buttons to control TileBox, TileBox Content Holder – Place to add TileBox Package and Thumbnail Ribbon – each gallery can have one Thumbnail Ribbon.

The structure:

<div id="tilebox-station">

  <div class="tb-ctrler">

    <!-- Start Close Button -->
    <span class="tb-closebt light-border solid-red">
      <img src="images/demo/close.png" alt="close button" />
    <!-- End Close Button -->

    <!-- Start Fitsize Button -->
    <span class="tb-fitsizebt light-border solid-green">
      <img src="images/demo/fit-size.png" alt="fitsize button" />
    <!-- End Fitsize Button -->

    <!-- Start Info Button -->
    <span class="tb-infobt light-border solid-blue-2">
      <img src="images/demo/info.png" alt="info button" />
    <!-- End Info Button -->

    <!-- Start Thumbnail Button -->
    <span class="tb-thumbbt light-border solid-jade">
      <img src="images/demo/thumbs.png" alt="thumbnail button" />
    <!-- End Thumbnail Button -->

    <!-- Start Prev Button -->
    <span class="tb-prevbt transparent-black">
      <img src="images/demo/prev.png" alt="prev button" />
    <!-- End Prev Button -->

    <!-- Start Next Button -->
    <span class="tb-nextbt transparent-black">
      <img src="images/demo/next.png" alt="prev button" />
    <!-- End Next Button -->


  <div class="tilebox-contentholder">

    // Add TileBox Package Here


  <div class="tb-thumbnail-ribbon" data-tbgid="gallery-id">

	<!-- Start a demo thumbnail in Thumbnail Ribbon -->
    <span data-tbid="tilebox-id" class="tb-thumbnail">
      <img src="thumbnail-image-path" alt="" />
	<!-- End a demo thumbnail in Thumbnail Ribbon -->

    <!-- Start a demo thumbnail in Thumbnail Ribbon -->		
    <span data-tbid="tilebox-id" class="tb-thumbnail">
      <img src="thumbnail-image-path" alt="" />
    <!-- End a demo thumbnail in Thumbnail Ribbon -->




A simpe TileBox package:

<!-- Start a simple TileBox package -->
<div data-tbid="tilebox-id" data-animIn="fadeIn" data-animOut="vanishOut" class="tilebox-content">

  <!-- Start Image Zone -->
  <article class="tilebox-img">
    <!-- Start Main Image -->
    <div class="main-img">
      <img src="main-image-path" alt="" />
    <!-- End Main Image -->
  <!-- End Image Zone -->

  <!-- Start InfoBox - Custom Content Box -->
  <article class="tilebox-info transparent-darknight top-red-border">

    <span class="info-ctrlbt solid-red">
      <i class="info-expandbt"></i>
      <i class="info-collapsebt"></i>

    <div class="tb-infocontent">

      <p class="info-title light-text">
        Box Title

      <p class="light-text">
        // Add some text or HTML code here.


  <!-- End InfoBox -->

<!-- End a simple TileBox package -->


You can place TileBox packages and Thumbnail Ribbons in the TileBox station (when you want to use inline content) or place them in “content/tilebox/content.php” file (when you want to use AJAX method to load TileBox Content).


Section 3: Call TileBox jQuery plugin.

To call TileBox jQuery plugin you just add this code below into the Head section:

<script type="text/javascript">
$(window).load(function() {
    enableSwipe: true,
    enableKeys: true


At the element you want to open TileBox when clicking on it you just add “data-tbid” and “data-tbgid” (if you want to group many TileBox to make Gallery) and a “tilebox-button” class.
