click plus sign to load image on page below plus sign

 7:28 pm on Jan 30, 2009 (gmt 0)

What's the best way to do this with css? I'm trying to avoid javascript.

I want larger images loading below a thumbnail or plus sign [+], instead of using pop-windows, frames, or taking the user off the page (and having to hit the back button). I don't want to use Flash and I don't want image swapping by pre-loaded larger images (file sizes are too large). The user must be able to save the loaded images.

What are the different ways to do this?

I doubt CSS alone will be able to help you with controlling what happens when you click on anything, that's the realm of scripting.
CSS has some (sometimes even elaborate) ability with hover, but afaik nothing with click.

With just css you will be altering the display or visible properties of the image or its container(you will need javascript to alter the CSS). You will need JavaScript or another technology to load the image after the page has loaded(if that's what you are saying).

OK, thanks. I'll try the JS forum.
