WP-Slimbox2 requires WordPress 2.8+
Support is graciously being hosted by Ryan Hellyer at PixoPoint.com I’ll make an effort to stay apprised of any questions that may arise.
A more elaborate discussion of features will be provided shortly.
The demonstration uses all the standard settings except that the easing has been set to easeOutElastic.
If you place `rel=”lightbox-imagesetname”` into your image links (replacing imagesetname with a unique name of your choice) all the images with imagesetname will be linked, allowing navigation by hovering over the left or right side of an image (until you see next/previous) or by using the assigned key codes (the defaults are configured here – left and right arrows).
By not including an imagesetname the effect limits itself to the clicked image.
Why did I write the script?:
I wrote this script after attempting to incorporate my Gallery2 gallery with WordPress. I found the WPG2 plugin very helpful (though I’m still learning its ins and outs to it), and attempted to use it’s built in lightbox and slimbox effects with no avail. Seeing that it was supposedly compatible with other plugins that added those effects I tried all of the ones I could find Lightbox2, Lightbox2, jQuery Lightbox, and Slimbox (yes, two of them were called Lightbox2).
None of them were bad, per se, though I was especially disappointed by the lack of control offered by most of them (Though it’s possible this was the fault of the JS, and not the plugin).
