Lightbox Media (LBM) is yet another clone of Lokesh Dhakar’s Lightbox (v2) image add-on. It’s been slightly modified to allow any content (media) apart from images to be shown inside an iframe. This is detected automatically so there’s no need to modify text outside the source files. The overlay effect is applied exactly like before by adding rel=”lightbox” inside the link tag, or rel=”lightbox[some-media-set]”.
Update: Based on user input I’m now pleased to announce version 1.2 of Lightbox Media. The update includes a fix for upper-case file names and also the possibility to set the width and hight for the iframed content by adding a short query string to the link. Demo’s are available at our new Area51 / LBM2 test site.
