  • 1 - To display one image

    'Lightbox2 Taz image !'); echo light_image('logo.jpg', 'taz.jpg', $image_options); ?>
  • 2 - To display a slide show of several images

    'taz.jpg', 'image' => 'taz2.jpg', 'options' => array('title' => 'taz2') ); $images[] = array( 'thumbnail' => 'taz2.jpg', 'image' => 'logo.jpg', 'options' => array('title' => 'Taz') ); $images[] = array( 'thumbnail' => 'logo.jpg', 'image' => 'taz.jpg', 'options' => array('title' => 'Taz') ); $link_options = array( 'title' => 'Taz SlideShow', 'slidename' => 'taz', ); echo light_slideshow($images, $link_options) ?>
  • 3 - To display a modal box with content of the result of an action

    // Modal Lightbox plugin test $link_options = array( 'title' => 'Taz...', 'class' => 'new blocksize_800x700' );

    echo light_modallink('

Taz presentation

', 'index/presentation', $link_options);

You can change the class to adjust the wanted size. Of course you can use a route instead of a 'module/action'. Don't forget to disable the layout as it's as if you were in a popup.

  • That's all, ;)
