WP jQuery Lightbox

A drop-in replacement for Lightbox 2 and similar plugins, shedding the bulk of Prototype and Scriptaculous. Improved for mobile devices.

This plugin lets you keep the awesome Lightbox 2-functionality, but sheds the bulk of the Prototype Framework and Scriptaculous Effects Library.

Warren Krewenki ported Lightbox to jQuery and this plugin is mostly a wrapper to his work: providing localization support, an admin panel for configuration, (optional) auto-boxing of your image links and support for WordPress galleries, including media library titles and captions.

This version is also adjusted for mobile devices;

  • Swipe gestures for flicking between images on touch devices
  • Improved scaling maximizes use of screen space
  • Live adjustment to the browser window and orientation of your phone

See the plugin in action here: http://game.hgo.se/blog/motion-capture/

You can browse images with your keyboard: Arrows, P(revious)/N(ext) and X/C/ESC for close.

If you value my plugins, there's several ways you can help me out;

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
