Here is another version of the Lightbox Extension "what not another one I here you all say" :shock: well yes but with a little difference with this you can have it play automatically after the first image is clicked it can also display the caption area to the top or bottom of the image and it also has the <<previous next>> in the caption area as well as having the standard previous, next buttons in the image... :D read below for further info
About
Lightbox Slideshow is a simple, unobtrusive script used to overlay images on the current page.
It’s basically a better version of Lightbox2. In fact, the technical requirements and installation steps are identical to Lightbox2, but with Lightbox Slideshow, the underlying code is much better and there are lots of useful configuration options.

Here are just a few things you can do with Lightbox Slideshow that you can’t do with Lightbox2:
auto-playing slideshow navigate images via ‘prev’ and ‘next’ links in the image caption area when browsing a group of images, go from the last image to the first image (and vice versa) this is done by using the keyboard see below for keys to use.
c = close lightbox
p = previous image
n = next image
f = display first image
l = display last image
s = toogle lightbox
move the caption above the image.

Hi glad yuo like the extension... :D it may be possible to do this but I have one concern about this it requires users to make there own buttons and not all users will know how to do this..also the buttons need to be a certain size to display properly or they can distort the layout in the css then as mentioned you need to change the text display and this means they need to modify the javascript aswell to allow it to show in there own language... it could all be done in the extension but as I said below makes it a little hard due to language translations...but I will look and see....
customize the interface language this feature is not available with this version of the extension it may be added at a latter date as this requires me to test with various languages and as English is my main language it makes it hard to test with another language I do not understand. I can provide a work around that will allow the user to be able to add some extra code into the javascript file but this is for advanced users only

Hi stempel glad you like it you will also see in the extension that as well as being able to use your own buttons you can use your own text for next, stop, stopslideshow, startslideshow, etc etc...as always if I can help I will try when using your own text remember you need to use lbStringsXX for your own language a full list of lbString can be found in the pdf so be sure to read...

thumbnails with different width or height

Post by giula » Wed Apr 14, 2010 10:09 pm

Hallo. I have seen at http://www.justinbarkhuff.com/lab/lightbox_slideshow/ , in section Example (group of images), that is possible to create thumbnails with different width. How that is possible? how can I get this?

No sorry it is not possible to display thumbnails of various sizes this is because the extension is using groups of images all at one time, so what ever height and width you give in the extension properties all image will be displayed at this size...note this does not effect the images that are displayed in the slideshow they will be shown at fullsize..

Can this extension load images only as needed and not all in advance?

I have in mind a slideshow with 5 x 50kb images that could be a problem for people with a slow connection - so at least if there was an extension that just didn't go to the next picture until it had loaded that would be fab..?
