https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/load_plugin_textdomain shows the proper usage of the function

line 171 of thickbox.php should be:
load_plugin_textdomain('thickbox', '', 'wp-content/plugins/thickbox/messages');

Plugin killed my menus
By ,

Added Javascript errors, and now my drop-down menus stopped working. De-activating this plugin made my menus come back to life.

Nice plugin concept, but needs some work to be compatible with menus.

I absolutely love it.

I can't understand why folks are giving thickbox such a low rating. I love it. My only complain is that it doesn't automatically set the WordPress "AddMedia" functionality to add Thickbox in attachments. Currently I just add class="thickbox" to image links manually.

Additionally, I use this in combination with YouTube SimpleGallery to great effect.

Very Good

Nice lightbox
