The part that I don’t understand is when you added the player.html. Where did that come from? Is that a link to your articulate storyline presentation? Can you tell me how to get to that point? I don’t have access to the ftp.
Hi Charity – The player.html is the default file name from Studio ’09. I published this example using a Studio project. If you’re publishing a Storyline project, you’d have a story.html file. In this example, you need to post your files to an external web server. I did use an FTP program to upload the files.
Here’s another Screenr with specific instructions for uploading a Storyline project to a web server: http://www.screenr.com/u5R8 Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll be glad to help.

Hi Sonja –
Looks like the Thinkbox is no longer being supported. I just updated the tutorial to include a new plugin: LightboxPlus. It works really well. Check it out and let me know if you have any questions!
Sonja D'Angelo says
thanks for the update. I tried it, but I got some problems with the plugin.
The size of the lightbox I couldn’t change, that it fits with my storyline-content.
Second there is a arrow on the left, which I don’t know where it comes from.
The code I use: Click here to see the content</
The link to my page: http://webinar-trainer-ausbildung.com/storyline-test/
I already checked the FAQ on the page, but there are only other problems…
This plugin looks great and its really helpful for me. I am using your plugin for embed my articulate output files it opens the lightbox modal perfectly when i hit the link. But the problem is after closing the modal an another small lightbox modal will show with your loading icon as a content if i close it again then only it closes the modal completely. Is there any solutions to fix this issue?
Thanks so much for the info. Would you know if this plug-in compljies with WCAG 2.0 AA standards for accessibility?

@KerryJ – It seems implementations vary across lighboxes. I couldn’t find anything specific for this plugin. I’d contact the developer to see if any testing has been done w/this plugin.

You can also use a plugin called GrassBlade xAPI Companion (http://www.nextsoftwaresolutions.com/grassblade-xapi-companion/) for both HTML5 as well as Tin Can packages of several authoring tools.
