Simple Joomla Shadowbox / Lightbox Module 2.0
This module will display multiple thumbnail images in any module position, when an image is clicked, it will open the full sized image in a shadowbox style lightbox.
Checkout the demo!
You may set:
Folder for images
All shadowbox options including options to use it as a slideshow
Image alignment: Left, Center or Right
Vertical or Horizontal layout of images
A placeholder message when the image is not set.
Nice new features/options include:
Automatic detection and use of thumbnail images
Use a scaled version of the full image if a thumb does not exist
Automatically use the image file name as the title for the shadowbox i.e. My_Car.jpg becomes "My Car"
Custom resizing of thumbnails
Select your image folder, there are 2 options either choose a folder from the /images/ folder, or choose a folder in the /images/stories/ folder.
To use thumbnail images instead of scaling down the full image, simply place an image in the same directory with the same file name, but add the _thumb suffix. I.e. My_Car_thumb.jpg will be used as the thumbnail for My_Car.jpg
Do not use spaces in file names for better compatability across systems, use underscores or hyphens instead.
