Gameplorer`s WPColorBox

Description

There are a few ColorBox plugins available, but the most of them add inline JavaScript code
to your site, embed the script files in the head instead at the bottom and other issues which
impact the site performance.
I needed something better and developed this plugin for a Blog about Casual Games.
Now I decided to make it public, if you wonder about the plugins name. 🙂
