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.
Since 3.0.2 shadowbox.js is out hopefully they are working on their new version getting the IE6 issue fixed. Unfortunately there are still IE6 users out there.
Other than this issue, I like the ease of use and the inline override/configuration options. This is the first shadowbox plugin that allowed me to 'drag' a very large picture rather than shrinking it making it unreadable. Can't wait to the GA version (but it need to work with all browsers)!!
Upgraded to v3.0.3 which should fix IE6 problems.
This is wondeful tools and gives the users freedom to modify it.
This is the most simple gallery module I've ever seen.
However the it is not easy for the user who don't know the HTML to use and it takes times for adding lots of pictures.
Another question if I enable the module, I found it will load the .js and .css files when I open the index pages. Have you tested how large it will be for I don't want to my index page become slow.
