Lightbox extension

Aug 12, 2009 at 12:05 PM

Hi!

I'm looking for a lightbox extension. The extension linked from the extensions section isn't working any more. (http://blog.data-worx.de/page/Extension-Lightbox.aspx) and the one at http://www.gravitycube.net/blog/post/Lightbox-Extension-for-BlogEngine.aspx 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?

 

Thanks!

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: http://www.jamesarchuleta.com/post/Thumbnails-in-BlogEngine.aspx .

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

});
</script>

hi,

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 )
