Image Lightboxing

Lightboxing Example

Home Front 1943

When you click on the LHS image it opens a larger image of itself layered on top of the original page.

The lightboxing script used is the Magnific Popup Plugin for jQuery from http://dimsemenov.com/plugins/magnific-popup/.

Magnific Popup is installed by the 'add-lb-plus' (add lightbox plus) plugin for CMSimple.


How tiny can a gallery script get? autoGallery is a tiny 5Kb script that can automatically build a gallery from a folder of images. Add a lightbox and you are away...

Note: autoGallery requires the lightbox and other scripts installed by the 'add-lb-plus' plugin.

Download autoGallery... auto-gallery.zip - 10 Kb

Included with the download is 'auto-gallery.php' which is the gallery builder and 'auto-gallery-index.php' which builds an overall gallery index when autoGallery has been used to build multiple galleries.


The following example adds a guestbook into a page via an IFRAME generated by the wrap() function.

The icons which come with the script download have been anti-aliased badly and the included template has problems at smaller screen sizes. In this example all the icons as well as the template have been updated.
