Detects automatically thumbnails without links in your posts and enables your visitors to magnify them to their full scale version.


Once activated, mAutoPopup works automatically for any post or page of you weblog. Insert a thumbnail from the Upload Manager of the post editor without any link to the file or the page and mAutoPopup will automatically detect it has a suitable thumbnail for magnification. A thumbnail surrounded any link tag won't be detected as suitable.

mAutoPopup works by default for all the pages or posts of you weblog. However, its behavoir can be selected amongst four options :

  • Active for all posts and pages (default)
  • Active for all posts but those where the disabling quicktag is present
  • Disabled for all posts but those where the enabling quicktag is present
  • Disabled

As mentioned, you can define a specific behavoir for some posts by inserting quicktags. The disabling quicktag is and the enabling quicktag is . If the correct behavoir is selected, the presence of one of these quicktags anywhere in a post will alter it. You can type it directly into the code editor or, better, use the Rich Text Editor plugin provided along with mAutoPopup from version 0.4.

Rich Text Editor (TinyMCE) plugin usage

mAutoPopup 0.4 includes a new rich text editor plugin to enable or disable mAutoPopup or to remove mAutoPopup quicktags from posts and pages. Once installed, this plugin shows 3 buttons in the first toolbar of the rich text editor.

  • Enable button Adds the enabling quicktag to the current edited post or page. The quicktag is inserted at the cursor position. If a disabling quicktag already exists, this button removes it.
  • Disable button Adds the disabling quicktag to the current edited post or page. The quicktag is inserted at the cursor position. If an enabling quicktag already exists, this button removes it.
  • Remove button Removes any quicktag from the current edited post or page.
