Introduction

Multimedia, Multimedia Display

Shadowbox is an online media viewer application that supports all of the web's most popular media publishing formats. Shadowbox is written entirely in JavaScript and CSS and is highly customisable. Using Shadowbox, website authors can showcase a wide assortment of media in all major browsers without navigating users away from the linking page.

  • Get this

Although Shadowbox can be used in standalone mode, it's just as easy to use Shadowbox with your JavaScript library of choice for a given project. Shadowbox comes bundled with adapters for the following JavaScript frameworks:

  • Prototype
  • jQuery
  • MooTools (requires 1.2 Core)
  • Dojo Toolkit
  • Yahoo! User Interface Library (requires yahoo-dom-event.js)
  • Ext (requires ext-core.js)

Shadowbox supports many different media formats via the Flash, QuickTime, and Windows Media Player browser plugins. Windows media files are supported on the Mac via the Flip4Mac QuickTime plugin.

Shadowbox includes many front-end languages such as Arabic, Catalan, Czech, Danish, German (Swiss), German, English, Spanish, Estonian, Finnish, French, Galician, Hebrew, Hungarian, Indonesian, Icelandic, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Burmese, Dutch, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese (Brazilian), Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Swedish, Turkish, Chinese (Simplified) and Chinese (Traditional).

The simplest way to tell Shadowbox which links you want it to open is to add a rel="shadowbox" (or rel="lightbox") attribute to each link. See the documentation for full usage instructions.

It's so nice to find a tool this simple and effective. I just needed a way to present my video portfolio but was getting frustrated with the default solutions for a K2 site. Popped in Shadowbox Media Viewer and bingo! You need to add a little HTML but it's easy.


The plugin is the basic thing that needs to do... BUT, it shouldn't hurt if someone puts some design in it. Rounded corners, some shadows on it. Fancy close button, etc...



Other than that, great! :D


works, BUT ...

i would really like to have this plugin work on my site ...

The only way it work for me it is with option "Base Adapter" ... with any other options it do not works...

BUT

Only with option "Prototype" it do not conflicts with my Joomgallery Slimbox popups of images ... with any other option the Joomgallery opens the images twice ...

Wery strange behavior ... i had try everything to avoid the conflict, but could not figure it out ...


Awesome plugin that saved saved my time on a really busy day. Just two steps to put what ever the content inside a lightbox (the shadowbox). Thanks a lot!!!


Very Good

Just feel the need to say - excellent quality plugin.



Installed, read couple lines of tutorial and done. My gallery looks cool, minimalistic and stylish.



Its so easy to open any content, external images, any media in a simple and professional looking popup now.



My search has ended, i am in peace.


Very easy to install, configure and use. Will highly recommend and also want to acknowledge their great customer service!


The plugin shows good for handling all files except the flv files. Its showing error in flv handling...And Now where to add the jwplayer in the plugin. Because no folder for libraries. Please help me.

Owner's reply: Try turning off Customise & Compress as that will use the original Shadowbox files (http://shadowbox-js.com) which do defiantly support FLV.

Thank you!

Works perfectly. Easy to setup. Quick download and install. A lot of settings. The default settings work great. One of the features i like is that it can resize large images to fit the user screen. You can put large images and be resized for users with small screens, so no worries. Thats why i prefer ShadowBox.



I can hardcode shadowbox but this plugin is so easy and flexible that i used this instead.



If you have issues, change the settings. Try to disable the JS Compression in plugin settings. Check for Other plugins and JS conflicts. Mine worked perfectly without having to touch anything.



And if you want to speed up the loading. Enable the built in "Customise & Compress" and Select "MooTools" as Adapter.



gosh... it took me more time to review this plugin than setting it up. But it worth it. Thanks again for that great plugin!


I congratulate the developers, is a great job, very thorough in my opinion because I have used several extensions and even today is the one that best fits and is free. It is easy to place thumbnails manually or automatically as well as other functions such as changing the language of filing of the box and I find powerful and complete. No matter what code you have to work, is the basics of HTML, any novice can do it: an image link. Thanks and congratulations.
