[CDB] Lightbox

Post by VSE » Sat Apr 05, 2014 6:01 am

Lightbox for phpBB 3.1

Description:
This extension adds the Lightbox 2 plugin to phpBB 3.1. It will resize posted images to a maximum set width and display them fullscreen in a Lightbox overlay effect. It will also turn itself off where the responsive layouts begin to take over (at screen sizes smaller than 900px).

I am open to comments from anyone trying this extension about how to improve its integration with phpBB 3.1.

Requirements:
  • phpBB 3.1.0 or higher
  • PHP 5.3.3 or higher
Repository: https://github.com/VSEphpbb/lightbox

Installation:
  • Download the latest release and unzip it.
  • Copy the entire contents from the unzipped folder to phpBB/ext/vse/lightbox/
  • Navigate in the ACP to Customise -> Manage extensions.
  • Find Lightbox under "Disabled Extensions" and click Enable.
Usage:
  • Navigate in the ACP to Post settings -> Lightbox image resizing.
  • Set the Maximum image width in pixel to your desired resize width.
  • Click Submit.
Important: This extension is in development. Installation is only recommended for testing purposes and is not supported on live boards.

You're probably not using the latest version of the develop branches (as specified in the requirements). Beta 2 is too old, outdated. Or wait for beta 3.

There are next/back buttons available, but I have not decided if they should be always on, or an ACP option for them.

To enable them, open up styles/all/template/event/overall_footer_after.html and change false to true on line 3: <!-- DEFINE $LIGHTBOX_GALLERY = 'false' -->

I didn't try the extension yet, so I may change my mind afterward, but it does not cost anything to have this enable at all time, does it?

Hi VSE, I am very new to phpbb and hope you can help.

I am using v3.0.12 and do not see the "Customise" tab in ACP, but I see "Manage Extensions" in "Posting" Tab. Is it the same thing?

When you say folder "phpBB/ext/vse/lightbox/", is the correct location xxxxx.com/phpBB/ext/vse/lightbox/ or xxxxx.com/ext/vse/lightbox/ ?

I tried to put the unzipped folder to both locations, but I don't see "Disabled Extensions" under "Manage Extensions" nor "Manage Extension Groups", did I miss something?

Thank you.

Extensions are for 3.1.x, not 3.0.x. Since you are using 3.0.12, this extension will not work. You have to install 3.1.

The Manage Extensions in the posting tab has to do with attachments.

When somebody uploads an attachment with a comment, show the comment instead of the file name under the lightbox image?
