Version 1.3.4 – Improved Lightbox and Thickbox support

Ok, I’ve got some new changes to share. First of all, the boring stuff. I put in some code to remove the extra paragraph tags that WordPress adds, so the gallery page should now validate as XHTML! I also added the ability to remove underscores in filenames.

The big thing I added is support for the Thickbox image viewer and a number of new ways to use Lightbox. See the FAQ page to see where to download these add-ons from. After you download and set up the one you want, visit the Lazy-K Gallery options page. You’ll notice that there are two new combo boxes in the Advanced Options section. There are a lot of options, so give them a try to see what you like. Of course, you can always just leave them alone and not use an external image-viewer. Here are the navigation options:

When the user clicks on a thumbnail…

  • show the regular slide page
  • show the full-size image in a new window
  • don’t do anything
  • show the slide using Lightbox
  • show the whole series of slides using Lightbox
  • show the full-size image using Lightbox
  • show the whole series of full-size images using Lightbox
  • show the slide using Thickbox
  • show the full-size image using Thickbox

When the user clicks on a slide…

  • show the full-size image in a new window
  • don’t do anything
  • show the full-size image using Lightbox
  • show the full-size image using Thickbox

Download the latest version of Lazy-K Gallery and let me know what you think. There are a lot of choices for the image-viewing add-ons, so let me know if you come up with any problems.
