PMK SlimBox (extKey: pmkslimbox)


What does it do?

Changes TYPO3s standard click-enlarge functionality to use SlimBox instead 
of popup windows. - Doesn't XCLASS any functions, as all is done using pure 

This extension was created because I needed the lightbox effect on a site 
where the output had to be XHTML compliant, and didn't XCLASS any files. 
(Which the other lightbox extensions do.)

Slimbox is a 7kb visual clone of the popular Lightbox JS v2.0 by Lokesh 
Dhakar, written using the ultra compact mootools framework. It was designed 
to be small, efficient, more convenient and 100% compatible with the 
original Lightbox v2.

This extended version has additional features as follows.
Support to show external content by iframe. You can assign url not only for 
image but also for general html document.
Support to set content size. You can add width/height parameter in rev 
attribute of the anchor url.
e.g.) rev="width=500, height=300" (For image content, you can also use 
percent value.)

Includes static templates for changing the click-enlarge functionality in 
tt_content and tt_news (Manual shows how to implement it in other extensions 
as well.)
