Yet another nice lightbox plugin

This package integrates the great prettyphoto jquery lightbox clone by Stephane Caron

prettyPhoto is a full blown media lightbox supporting images, videos, flash, YouTube, iframes and ajax. It can be used as a drop-in replacement of JQueryPlugin's version of slimbox, another lightbox clone, shipped with foswiki by default.

prettyPhoto has been integrated by means of minimal invasive markup, that is any DIV element with a class jqPrettyPhoto will be converted into a media lightbox automatically without any extra provisions, similar to the way slimbox is used. Additional parameter to the plugin itself can be passed using JQueryMetadata.

Note that Foswiki:Extensions/TopicInteractionPlugin as well as Foswiki:Extensions/ImageGalleryPlugin will automatically switch from slimbox to prettyPhoto for lightboxing.


( using Foswiki:Extensions/ImagePlugin )
