Lightbox extension

Aug 12, 2009 at 1:05 PM


I'm looking for a lightbox extension. The extension linked from the extensions section isn't working any more. ( and the one at doesn't use the latest lightbox version.

Is there a lightbox extension that automaticly makes every image I post in the blogenginge-editor to a thumbnail and also add the lightbox-popup-feature?

Hey Sweddotnet,


I have a solution for you, It's not quite and extention, but its really simple to set up.

I posted a blog about setting up the thumbnails. here: .

Then for the light box stuff, I just used jQuery's Lightbox.

I added this to the Head section of my settings page.


    <!--  jQuery lightBox plugin -->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/js/jquery.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/js/jquery.lightbox-0.5.js"></script>

    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/css/jquery.lightbox-0.5.css" media="screen" />
    <!--  jQuery lightBox plugin -->

<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {

	// This, or...
	$('a.lightbox').lightBox(); // Select all links with lightbox class

I am using PrettyPhoto plugin with blogengine based website

i know it is not your answer but who

* already have an jquery extension ( what i made for myself is customized )

* don't care about latest versions ( it only work for images, not for videos or other content by its version, also i don't think about any update except errors or big performance changes )


can take a look at
