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.

IMPORTANT: LightBox2 IS NOT compatible with older LightBox version!



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.

Not working :( LightBox2 doesn't work. I have installed this extension without problems but when I try to view a product in my frontend I have this error message I don't know what to do. Invalid method IG_LightBox2_Block_Catalog_Product_View_Media::renderCloudOptions(Array ( ) ) And a lot of lines after that message April 22, 2014
Works as Advertised I JUST use the Fancy Box and the default settings. I just wanted a quick way to get product images to zoom in a more modern style. This extension will get you lightboxes on product pages in just a few seconds versus an hour hard coding it into a template. Please note, I noticed if I exclude the main image my lightbox was not working. I rather see the "More Views" underneath rather than my lightbox not working. And note to the Dev: Please add an exclude jQuery option to the extension. You can remove it in the layout xml but for the average user already plagued with 100 Extensions all trying to force their own jQuery down their throats it's a nice relief to easily exclude jQuery.This is why I give it 4 instead of 5 stars. Works fine on 1.8.1 April 4, 2014
Good but with shortcomings I had to manually edit one of the extension templates to get the title to show for the first/main image in the lightbox after no responses from the developer. Apart from this, extension works as advertised. February 4, 2014
Label for firt image Hi, nice extension. Works fine. But it doesn't show the label for the first / the main image. Any suggestions? Thanks November 27, 2013
"More images" bug fix Please download "More images" bug fix: http://web-experiment.info/articles/free_responsive_extensions#IG October 24, 2013
It works like a charm Thank you for this plugin, it works like a charm :) October 9, 2013
A bit more elegant hacking... Are you (too) annoyed by the "more images" bug? Change <?php if (count($this->getGalleryImages()) > 0): ?> <div class="more-views"> <h2><?php echo $this->__('More Views') ?></h2> <ul> to <?php if (count($this->getGalleryImages()) > 0): ?> <div class="more-views"> <?php if (count($this->getGalleryImages()) > 1): ?> <h2><?php echo $this->__('More Views') ?></h2> <?php endif ?> <ul> in /app/design/frontend/base/default/template/ig_lightbox2/catalog/product/view/media/gallery/*.phtml (I only use fancybox but he other files use the same code) September 28, 2013
Lightbox works - configuration doesn't The lightbox appears to be working satisfactorily, but when I try to go to the configuration in the admin panel it throws a 404. I'll keep it for now since it works, but it would be much appreciated with a fix for the configuration. August 22, 2013
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

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

I would like to alter the vertical height of the lightbox so it appears higher in the page. How do I do that?

Thank you
