How can I change the product_info.php so that the thumbnails displayed are also links to open a fancyBox window?

I don't know why it doesn't work this way by default, it seems more intuitive. Right now you have to click the thumbnail, then click the larger image to open fancyBox. Can anyone help me change this so that it opens fancyBox when the thumb is clicked as well? I have no idea where to create the <a rel link for the thumb that the script requires.

Thanks in advance!

<script type="text/javascript">
$('#piGal ul').bxGallery({
  maxwidth: 300,
  maxheight: 200,
  thumbwidth: <?php echo (($pi_counter > 1) ? '75' : '0'); ?>,
  thumbcontainer: 300,
  load_image: 'ext/jquery/bxGallery/spinner.gif'
	  } else {
    <div id="piGal" style="float: right;">
	  <?php echo '<a href="' . tep_href_link(DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'thumbs/def/large/' . $product_info['products_image']) . '" target="_blank" rel="fancybox">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'thumbs/def/display/' . $product_info['products_image'], addslashes($product_info['products_name']), null, null, 'hspace="5" vspace="5"') . '</a>'; ?>
<script type="text/javascript">
$("#piGal a[rel^='fancybox']").fancybox({
  cyclic: true

That was the behavior of the original add-on from which the 2.3 code was 'hacked' if you examine that perhaps it will be clear

I am running 2.3.1 osC. I'm not sure if your post will help, since I already have fancybox and a multi-image contrib.

Does your modified product_info.php make the thumbnails a link to fancybox popup? i.e.
<a rel="fancybox">
? That's all I'm looking for since it already functions with the main image, I'm just a noob at reading php and js :)

Thanks for your work and reply!
