Overview


Popular LightBox and Thickbox, JavaScript widgets to show content in modal windows, are outdated at the moment. They are not updated since 2007. There are some great alternatives - colorbox, jQueryUI Dialog, fancybox, DOM window, shadowbox, but we highly recommend you to try VisualLighbox - Lighbox Alternative. VisualLighbox is packed with a dozen of beautiful skins, fantastic transition effects and free gallery generator software for Mac and Windows!

Step 4. Gallery properties.

Change the name of your album, the size and quality of your pictures with jQuery Thickbox Alternative. From the Gallery menu, select Properties or use "Edit Gallery Properties" button on the toolbar.

On the first tab of the Gallery Properties window you can change the name of your photo album and enable/disable the following properties: Slide Show, Auto play Slide Show, Zoom effect, Overlay Shadow. You can also set the Overlay shadow color and select the Engine you want to use (jQuery or Prototype + script.aculo.us).

Control the quality of output PNG or JPEG format image by defining output "Image quality" and "Thumbnail quality" parameters (0%...100%).

Step 5 - Publishing of the jQuery Thickbox Alternative.

When you are ready to publish your website photo album online or to a local drive for testing you should go to "Gallery/Publish Gallery". Select the publishing method: publish to folder or publish to FTP server.


Publish to FTP

    publish to folder. To select a local location on your hard drive, just click the Browse folders button and choose a location. Then click Ok. You can also set "Open web page after publishing" option. publish to FTP server. The FTP Location Manager window enables you to define a number of connections for use when uploading your web site album to an FTP.

You are able to add a new FTP site by clicking "Edit" to the right of the "Publish to FTP server" drop down list. FTP Location Manager window will appear. Now type in a meaningful (this is not the actual hostname) name for your site and fill in the FTP details in the appropriate fields. You will have to type in your hostname, e.g. domain. The FTP port is normally located on port 21 thus this has been prefilled for you already. If your web site uses another port, you will have to enter it here.

Type in your username and password for the connection. If you do not fill in this information, Visual LightBox is unable to connect to your site and thus not able to upload your gallery to website. If this site enables anonymous connections, just type in anonymous as the username and your e-mail address as the password.

You might want to change the Directory as well if you need to have your uploaded images placed in e.g. "www/gallery/". You can specify it in the FTP Folder field on the Publish Gallery window.

Notice: Write the name of the folder where your website gallery will be placed on the server. Notice that you should specify this field; otherwise your website album will be uploaded into the root folder of your server!

Step 6. Save your photo gallery as project file.

When you exit jQuery Thickbox Alternative application, you'll be asked if you want to save your project. The project consists of the pictures you choose to put on your web photo gallery and all your settings. It's a good idea to save the project, because that will allow you to change the project in case you decide to do something different with future galleries. So click Yes, then enter a name for your project. To select the location of your project, just click the Browse folders button and choose a different location. Then click Save.

Step 7 - Add Visual LightBox inside your own page.

Visual LightBox generates a special code. You can paste it in any place on your page whereyou want to add image gallery.

    * Export your LightBox gallery using Visual LightBox app in any test folder on a local drive.
    * Open the generated index.html file in any text editor.
    * Copy all code for Visual LightBox from the HEAD and BODY tags and paste it on your page in the HEAD tag and in the place where you want to have a gallery (inside the BODY tag).

<head>
...
  <!-- Start Visual LightBox.com HEAD section -->
   .....
  <!-- End Visual LightBox.com HEAD section -->
... </head>
<body>
...
  <!-- Start Visual LightBox.com BODY section -->
  .....
  <!-- End Visual LightBox.com BODY section -->
...</body>

    * You can easily change the style of the templates. Find the generated 'engine/css/vlightbox.css' file and open it in any text editor.
