Figures are the boxes that hold images in one form or another on any given web page.
The template website supports two versions of figures; the first (covered in this section) is just a basic image that appears on any web page:
This is just a straight forward image, clicking it doesn’t do anything
Then we have lightbox images, where clicking the image opens a bigger version of the image and greys out the background website:
This section is only concerned with the first type, displaying a simple image on a website. The second, lightbox image requires a Java plug-in and is explained in section 20.
That said, the lightbox arrangement is based on the basic figure construction discussed here; it has all the same containers and captions &c.
For a website that uses images of one sort or another, this section is the place to start.
