Overview

LightBox2

LightBox2 is a fully customizable and ready-to-use extension to take control of your products' images and showing up them in a wonderful and well-managed way.

LightBox2 is based on JQuery, one of the most used AJAX libraries worldwide.
LightBox2 ships 4 different plugins for managing behaviour and effects of your images, each with a number of options and settings you can configure on your own within Magento backend.
You can manage slideshows, auto resizing, colors, effects and much much more with one of following plugins:

  • Traditional Lightbox: for nostalgics of first easy and clear visualization!
  • FancyBox: for minimalistic picture frame
  • PrettyPhoto: for an immersive experience with small thumbs navigation inside image
  • ColorBox: for highly configurable user experience with up to 5 different themes and huge availability of custom settings

LightBox2 can manage all Magento catalog images type alongside with picture frames: width, height, max width and max height for base, small and thumbnails images are supported.

LightBox2 is fully multi-store compatible and integration is completely automatic and update-safe via media.phtml file override.

Does not work for single images I was hoping this would improve upon Mageno's poor user experience with its standard image gallery. I'm sure it does when you have more than one image for every product, but if your store is anything like mine, most products only have one image. As another reviewer described, if a product has only one image, and you have the "exclude" box ticked (since you don't need the "more images" box), then all this extension does is make the image clickable. Clicking the image just opens the image in the current window. Not what I wanted, at all. July 12, 2013
"Fancybox" works perfectly on mobile devices We have tested this extension on various mobile devices. We highly recommend Lightbox Type = "Fancybox" for any responsive themes. Tested in: - Windows Mobile 7.5 (Watch video: http://youtu.be/xoIugYGcPjA?t=1m10s) - Android 4.3 browser (Watch video: http://youtu.be/n2ugt1CKZ-g?t=45s) - iPad - Safari browser (Watch video: http://youtu.be/mUw7sdtmBIk?t=1m26s) - Opera Mobile (tested on Android 2.3.6) July 5, 2013
Page Not Found Installed Lightbox2, Community edition, v 1.7.0.2 and receive a 404 page not found error when selecting LIghtbox2 in the configuration panel. Unable to provide an accurate review since it's not working. July 1, 2013
Works but can do with a tweak The product works great and the lightboxes are beautiful! However I do have one minor feedback: The logic for "more views" doesn't make sense to me in file skinurl\template\ig_lightbox2\catalog\product\view\media\gallery\[lightbox type].phtml: You remove the thumbnail for the image that matches the current product's main image AFTER the count($this->getGalleryImages()) logic. This means if the product only has one image, it will show no thumbnails but still has "More Views" with an empty <ul> tag underneath. I solved it by removing the lines: if ($_product->getImage() == $_image->getFile()) continue; as we should use the "exclude" checkbox in the product image tab to remove any images from the thumbnail gallery. Then I used if (count($this->getGalleryImages()) > 1): since if there's only one thumbnail, there's no point in displaying the thumb gallery. Finally the javascript block at the end should sit outside the above condition, or products with no gallery thumbs will send you to the product image location instead of bringing up the light box. Alternatively, if you still want to let lightbox remove the matching thumbnail, then the foreach loop should happen before the count() condition - use a counter variable to determine gallery size instead and put the <li> blocks in a string. Hope this makes sense and is helpful! June 25, 2013
Works with ver. 1.7.0.2 Thx you so much. Really great with a cool and good gallery that works with magento 1.7 :) June 5, 2013
Finally a working Lightbox for 1.7 It works like a charm! The only small issue is when you have only one image, and it will still show the "More images" block. Aside from that, I am using with Fancybox option and it is working, even with my customized template! Thank you! May 27, 2013
Great... but! As per the original Easy Lightbox extension this plugin works beyond reasonable expectations. I am happy. Well so I thought, I did notice a small bug that doesn't seem to have been picked up by the developer (yet). The bug If you have a single image on a product page with the 'Exclude' option selected in admin, the image will preview in an empty page when double clicked on the frontend. Other than that - a great extension! May 2, 2013
Can'd disable extension I want to disable extension in some magazine because I have multiple website in the same magento and I need the extension for only one but I can't do it please add option in configuration to disable the extension thanks March 9, 2013
Thanks for the great extension :-) I would like to have the thumb images to be showen under the main image, can someone help me with how this is done? You can see how it is now here: http://db.tt/lGn5COM4 Thanks January 10, 2013
Thank you for this extension, MageSpecialist! Worked fantastically without any configuration beyond Connect needed. January 4, 2013

Thank you

I have more than 5 images for each products, how can I set the watermark for all of them.

I tried to upload the watermark and it only show on the first base image.

it seems that other base images are treated as small images.

Any solutions?
Thanks
