Block based on Lightbox1 user found helpful
it's really easy to skin, and you can have it just point to another area on another page.
Here's a link where you can watch for progress:

There are some things i didn't stick in the git that i have to do.
I've installed your colorbox plug-in and the image is always the same size before or after you click the image.
See what is happening here:
The big black square at the bottom is using your colorbox.
If I use "mix height" and "min width," when it is supposed to enlarge, it will actually remain the same size as the thumbnail image. So, it's either a big image at all times or a small image at all times.
Is it not working correctly yet?
I like your Popup block, but I noticed in Example 3 using the image gallery all the images are popping out of the container box at the right side:
I am viewing in the latest Firefox for Mac (3.6.3)
I remember I've talked to you before and you've always been super-helpful. Your response here was also immediate. So, I think from now on, I'm going to be looking to see if you've created a plug-in that suits my needs first.
Once I get my refund, I think I will go ahead and buy your plug-in.
It's pretty easy to use by just inserting a rel="facebox" tag.
Example: click the room links
http://www.smwc.edu/resources/conferences/facility-rental/... (draft page)
Those overlays are delivered with a custom template for the page list block that adds the rel="facebox" tag.
These gentlemen have taken care of all browser inconsistencies etc so you just have to forget all those worries.
The version on github is very outdated, really!! I've forgotten to push the changes :P But I will do when I finnish the Pro version which I'm working on at the moment. I've to discuss that with Mnkras which features the Light version is going to have. And how and if we price this Pro thingy.

You can use multiple themes on one page and you will be able to use every colorbox option. Really immense control!
I'm still new to Concrete5, so I might be missing something obvious. But how do I simply create popup images from thumbnails in my articles?
I have the full-sized image in my File Manager, and I create a thumbnail embedded in the text of an article. When the visitor clicks on the thumbnail, I want a lightbox to pop up. I have it working so the thumbnail links to a full-sized image, but I can't seem to get it to work as a lightbox, even when I set it to "lightbox" in the advanced tab of the link editor.
Having these kinds of pop-ups is important i my site. Can someone lead me in the right direction here?
Here is a simple way of doing this:
1. download this theme from the marketplace,http://www.concrete5.org/marketplace/themes/eye-theme/...
3. drop this line of code into your theme's header.php AFTER the 'header_required' php call and before </head>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="<?php echo $this->getThemePath()?>/shadowbox/shadowbox.css" />
4. Add a reference to any link to make it appear as a shadowbox: rel="shadowbox[set]"
for example <a href="www.google.com" rel="shadowbox[set]; width="750"; height="500";>http://www.google.com </a> would open google's home page in a fixed width and height shadowbox.

thank you! i can't believe i bought 2 plug-ins.
Then you just need to create an chor with the class "gallery" in this case. Really simple.
Not that simple to automate most of that for you with an addon though ;)
I have tried the methods described here, and they just seem rather clunky.
As I have posted elsewhere, I am building a Web site using Concrete5 and Joomla, so I can do a full comparison of the benefits and weaknesses of each. With Joomla, the WYSIWYG editors allow you to insert a photo in an article, then apply a "popup" class. That creates popups quickly as you insert your photos.
I find the available options in Concrete5 to be rather less elegant.
Yeah, I agree... What is the Lightbox option in the dropdown of the Link Advanced tab for if not for hooking up Concrete5 to Lightbox? If there's some conflict or something, why is it even there?
The popup selector and values are hard coded here. It was easy to add as many predefined values to the rel id eg
<option value="lightbox;height=166;width=560">Lightbox Soundcloud</option>
or I could comment out the selector style and insert a text input style, so in the tinyMCE link editor the rel popup is now just a text box and will accept any entry.
I realise this will probably get wiped out by future upgrades, but at worst they will loose the option until I hack it again, at least it would not break existing pages. I dont understand why there is no built-in option for lightbox with values on any link. All the blocks in the market place are nice, but no good if you need to have lightbox off a plain text link in the middle of a paragraph.
You might want to check the path for the .htm and and maybe alter the paths to the js and css calls in the head.
