    I installed the plugon on a WP 3.2.2 install and it works well.

    I have one frustration though: as it resizes to my screen (and am on a small laptop now), the caption becoemes almostr unreadable.
    So I see it resizes but I d like tell itto resize to sthg lightly smaller than the screen.

    I tried play in the CSS but does not work?

    Then I saw there is this beautiful option in admin:
    “Shrink large images to fit smaller screens” with a margin.
    I set to 10, or 10px… unfortunately it does not seem to change anything!

    Any clue?

    1. Resizing only affect the image, it does not scale captions. Set a better font size in your css.

    The margin text field takes a number. Setting it to 10 means it will scale down to browser width/height, minus 10px.

    2. Link?

    Thanks for the answer, it is on localhost for now, I’ll try playing with image size and text size, but I think it would be useful to be able set the size / margoin for the whole thickbox relative to the windows.

    Hi ulfben,
    I can’t seem to figure out how to email you a question I have about the WP jQuery Lightbox. it has to do with a text sizing issue.

    When I click on an image and it pops up in the light-box pop up menue….the text below is small and my client wants to know if we can make the text in the light-box bigger. His clients are older people and he fears his clients wont be able to read the small type.

    the website i’m working on is edsdrilling.com/new
    if you go to photo gallery and click on a photo, you will see the small type that i’m talking about

    i think I figured out how to edit the type (i need to target the #imageDataContainer in the .css) but when i update it,nothing happens. The .css document says it’s “inactive” and i believe this is what is preventing me from updating the type to a bigger size. Is there a way i can activate the .css document? Any other suggestions are welcome. thanks so much!

    1. never edit the CSS of a plugin, since it will be replaced on every update.

    2. don’t bother editing CSS-files that are not even used on your site. (read the HTML source and you’ll see).

    3. … edit your own CSS file?
