Manual Install Instructions for SMF

Below are some preview images of what the mod looks like when being used


jQLightbox v0.6
By Slinouille

The mod adds a real lightbox feature to all images in your forum.
jQLightbox mod uses:
- jQuery javascript library : - v1.4.2
- jQuery prettyPhoto pluggin from - 3.0

o Activation in admin control panel
o Nice lightbox effect
o Multiple images are displayed as a gallery
o Automatic image resize to fit the user's screen
o No conflict with other javascript libraries you could use
o Admin can parameter autoresize, padding on each side of picture, opacity, animation speed and a theme.

Simply install the package to install this modification on the SMF Default Core theme.
Manual edits will be required for other themes.

Note: If you want to use also AttachmentInMessage mod, please install "jQLightbox pluggin for AIM" mod after

This mod is compatible with SMF 2.0 RC4 Public and above only.

Installation with AttachmentsInMessage modification
If you want to use jQLightbox modification with AttachmentsInMessage mod, I recommand to first install AttachmentsInMessage and after jQLightbox.
After what, follow next instructions:
o Open Sources/Display.php
o Find line
$inlinedtext = '<a href="' . $attachment['href'] . ';image" id="link_' . $attachment['id'] . '" onclick="'. $attachment['thumbnail']['javascript']. '"><img src="'. $attachment['thumbnail']['href']. '" alt="" id="thumb_'. $attachment['id']. '" border="1" class="outsb" class="inlined_img" /></a>';
o Replace by
$inlinedtext = '<a href="' . $attachment['href'] . ';image" id="link_' . $attachment['id'] . '" rel="lightbox[gallery]"><img src="'. $attachment['thumbnail']['href']. '" alt="" id="thumb_'. $attachment['id']. '" border="1" class="outsb" class="inlined_img" /></a>';
