iBox is a lightweight script that lets you overlay images and documents in a small dialog without a page reload. It’s built to be easy to install and use.


  1. Upload the ibox folder into your blog’s wp-content/plugins directory (so it should become wp-content/plugins/ibox/)
  2. Log into WP admin
  3. Head on over to Plugins. It should say iBox – click on Activate (it may take a few minutes to finish)

Now that you have the files needed, you simply can tag rel="ibox" on to an a tag that you want iBox to take over. See below for several examples.


There are several arguments available on your iBox controls. These are specified in the rel="ibox" line.

  • width
    Sets the width of the popup.
  • height
    Sets the height of the popup.

iBox also supports some arguments via standard anchor attributes.

  • title
    title=”Popup Title”
    The title to show in the popup window.
  • target
    The target document to load (if different than the document in the href attribute).
