Lightbox customer interface

The recently launched Lanna Charm site has a very nice way of handling the interface for Lightbox photo zoom - there's an extra box around the photo that directs the customer to click to close. Sweet! I asked Mickmac and he's unable to tell me how it works. Does anyone else know how to do this? I'd love to have this feature. Eileen

The designer didn’t use the global_asset version of lightbox. You can find the version they used here:

In the new minimify theme we use a newer lightbox which has some of those advantages. Its not as nice is this one though.

We can’t really globally update all the lightboes which are already installed but new themes should come with this lightbox i think :)

Has anyone had luck adding this to their theme? Any guidance would be appreciated. The photo interface is one of the main things I’m not happy with about my site, especially because my items use a lot of photos. I’m using a barely modified dropify theme.
Thanks.

Here is a slimmed down version of lightbox

The directions are easy to follow and I can confirm that it works.

I really love slimbox made with mootools, especially since it renders valid CSS, unlike lightbox 2.0. Plus mootools has some awesome transitions to make slimbox put a little wiggle in its walk. I’m working on a site right now that uses mootools instead of scriptaculous and prototype. I’ll post a link when it’s finished up.

Hey guys,

It would be great if somebody could do a write up of how to implement slimbox… I’m quite savvy when it comes to xhtml/css, but come javascript I’m pretty weak. Some pointers would be really appreciated.

I added a Slimbox tutorial in the wiki. Hope it helps!

I want this to work, but I don’t have a shop.css asset, mine is a shop.js & it’s not working…
