Lightbox Javascript feature

Post by MarkCwee on November 8th 2008, 1:09 pm

I would like to tickle a technician's imagination with this application.

I don't know what is the name for this stuff, so I'm posting in here.

Check this out:

This is just an example link: Example link

Just click in the center of IMAGE, and you'll see that WINDOW WITH IMAGE is opening! Smile

I don't know what this feature is calling, but it would be AWSOME to have it on my board. That means no more boring link posting and image resizing etc...

After technicians "expertise", I will create a poll for this app.
Please I expect your recall. Thx

Its a javascript ... one of the lightbox variations...
It is possible to use so long as you have a FTP host for the .js

I use similar technology here:
Spoiler:
If the techies can add a normal image resizing I'd be happy

You can grab from the link below, Lightbox 2. That's what I'm using, I host my javascript on a javascript host. The sad thing is, you can only use it on HTML pages.

have you tried taking out the script type part and replacing with just <script > tag at start and </script > at end? that will work sometimes.

yup ... thats the reason why it can't be done...meta tags don't help
although I've never actually seen a forum that has posts with lightbox...
most just have an enlarge mod.

i sometimes use normal BB to make a nice effect:
Code:
[url=url of big pic][img]of little pic[/img][/url]

but that is not the same.

@ zinex... with lightbox you have to have this part :
Code:
<script type="text/javascript" src="prototype.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="scriptaculous.js?load=effects,builder"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="lightbox.js"></script>
in the html for the lightbox elements:
Code:
<a href="images/.png" rel="lightbox" title="alternative description">
to work... so without modifying the html we can't do it
