Experimentations with Lightbox 2

The brilliant Lightbox 2 javascript/css, written by Lokesh Dhakar, allows you to present images in a slick window, while darkening the rest of the page. It adds a whole lot of design panache to a website, and adds very little to page load times. It does not require any browser plugins to work. It uses javascript and when a browser doesn’t support javascript, the code fails gracefully.

I have recently been experimenting with a WordPress plugin developed by Rupert Morris that makes the implementation of Lightbox 2 a snap.

Hats off to Lokesh and Rupert.
