Preview Pictures...(possibly with Ajax)? (7 posts)

    Hello everybody!

    As you might have seen on different web sites (also in some wordpress theme viewer) there is a cool interactive way to preview a picture:

    When clicking on the picture the background is dimmed and a white box appears in the middle of the screen. In the box the picture is loaded.

    How can I create a similiar effect?
    Do you know of any tutorial?

    Thanks a lot,

    Search for "lightbox".

    That was exactly what I was looking for - thanks!

    Question now is only how I can add it to my wordpress blog? In which PHP file do I have to write the three js libraries into the <head> tag?

    Is there anyway to get it working with a gallery plug-in?

    Thanks again!

    Probably the file to start with would be your theme's header.php.


    No clue on gallery, but maybe search here in the forums and see if anyone else has been down this same road?

    A search that might interest you is lightbox wordpress plugin. They should automate the process quite a bit.

    Maybe I do not understand the structure of the wordpress pages, but if I add some information (like the js libraries) only into the header.php can they still be accessed by content which is placed into lets say the footer? I mean does a code in the footer know what is written in the header?
