    Hi thomas,

    thanks for the plugin - unfortunatly I can't get it to work as it should.
    Followed the exact instructions but it just opens the clicked thumbnail in the active window in full size.

    Im on the secretary cms v 2.3 - do you know why it's not working?
    It seams like no javafunction or whatever made up by is not being "called".

    Here is a link where you can "see" it...

    Hope somebody can help...

    hi kasper,

    I guess there is something wrong with some code above the slimbox script in the <head> section. Maybe there are some hidden characters in the code above. Sometimes you get that from copy/paste.

    Could you try to remove the google analytics script and see, if the lightbox is working?

    Hi again,

    think i worked it out - when inspecting the head code I could see the link for the plugin was wrong.

    (i just downloaded the folder from github and put it into the right directory - not renaming it to "lightbox")

    Now it seams to work - thanks a million for pointing me in the right direction!

    oh, my mistake... I've just forgot the folder thing when I moved to github. I will update the installation instructions.

    No problem - now it works.

    Just have a basic question:

    Im trying to make some sort of 5 x ? (horizontal, vertical) grid of the thumbs - messed a bit with the .img style and the "inline" property but could not get more than 3 x rows...

    Do you have any suggestions on how or where I style the little thumbnails so they appear in some sort of grid (that matches the page width) ??

    ...ok, this shows that I've never used my own plugin in production :-)

    I've added a wrapper div around each img-file with class="file". So this is more inline with the other displayers and better for css-styling. Just download it again from github.

    To make a grid, try something like


    The bug you've mentioned is because of the filename of your image. Just remove the space in the filename and upload & add the image again to your group.

    I am having an issue with this plugin where the full size images are HUGE and not following the settings in the "settings - project" page.

    Check out one of the pictures there, see how big it is? I have it set to width: 500 in the settings page.

    What can be done about that?

    Hi Steve,

    I simply forgot to implement the automatic resizing of the fullsize image. :-)

    I fixed that. Please download the new version of the plugin. You only need to replace the lightbox.plugin.php file in the plugin folder. After that, everthing should work as expected... Please let me know, if you encounter any problems. (I just tested it locally)

    The resizing function is still not working on my site. I have the latest plugin.

    I can't figure out what to do to fix this.;id=animals

    Did you set the "Resize Images" option for "Full-size Image"? (at the bottom under Settings->Projects)

    But when I do that, it just shows me the loading icon...

    Intelligent scaling option does nothing...

    Thanks thomas! I have made the change and it works perfect for me.

    One question regarding formatting:

    I have put in

    .file{ float:left; }

    as you recommended. However it does not seem very even. Is there a way we can improve this? Maybe ensuring the same # of photos are listed per row?
