WP Multibox

This plugin adds the Multibox lightbox script from phatfusion to WordPress in unobtrusive way. Now natively supporting post inclusion through AJAX!

How can I open a post from my blog into the multibox?

Enable the WordPress AJAX feature in the plugin settings. Set the attribute 'rel="wpajax:true"' in the trigger link. Set the ID of the link to: 'yourclass'+'-ajax-'+'targetpost->ID' e.g. "wmp-ajax-42", or "lightbox-ajax-536" Multibox will connect to the WordPress native AJAX gateway (admin-ajax.php) and display the post content. Automatic retrieval of the post ID and content, from a given slug/URL, will be implemented in a future release.

Can I manually open links in the multibox?

Yes. When you make a link in the editor of wordpress, use the 'class="wmp"' tag. Example to open Google in a window: a class="wmp" rel="width:600,height:500" href="http://www.google.com" When you make use of the rel="" tag, you can set width and height of the multibox frame.

Can I set a title and description that is displaying only in the multibox?

Yes: insert an image in your post and click on the settings button of the image. Go to the "advanced" tab and fill out the title and description fields.

Could the plugin work with image gallery plugins such as Nextgen or Cleaner Gallery?

Yes: make it use "wmp" or the same class name specified in the WP Multibox settings panel and disable other built-in lightbox scripts.
