Please add lightbox-style photo viewing

  1. Almost every blog in the world now has lightbox-style photo capabilities, except mine. :-( What I'd like is the ability to add a photo (or a "gallery", i.e. a set of photos), have them appear as thumbnails, then expand to full size when clicked - without navigating away from the page. For galleries, you should be able to click one side of the expanded image or the other to see the next or previous photo.

    Let me know if I can provide links to some of the millions of examples of this out there.

    Photos are a big reason for blogging - please spend some time enhancing this.

    Thanks!

  2. You can have lightbox-style images right now by including the appropriate code with the image. See this other forum thread where aw1923 show how to do it: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/popup-box-for-images?replies=7#post-356048 .

  3. I'll add this link also to aw1923's blog post on the thickbox thing: http://sensicology.wordpress.com/2009/07/05/pop-up-picture-box-thingy-for-wordpress-blogs/ .

  4. Doesn't seem to work for galleries, as far as I can tell.

  5. No, it doesn't work for galleries.
