I have made a little modification, so that the plugin creates thumbnails not for every resized image, but only for those who belong in a specific class. I describe those changes in case someone needs them:
In file mavikthumbnails.php, change line 156 from:
if ( $this->img->getHeight() || $this->img->getWidth() )
if ( ($this->img->getHeight() || $this->img->getWidth()) && $this->img->getClass() == 'mavik' )
In file imgtag.class.php, under the line 80 add the following:
$this->_class = @$this->_attributes['class'];
and at line 127 under the function getWidth() add this one:
Afterwards upload these two files to the folders plugins/content and plugins/content/mavikthumbnails respectively (replace the original ones).
From now on, to create a thumbnail for an image in an article, you have to define that the image belongs to class "mavik" (e.g. ) and use the mouse to resize the image in the editor. That's all.
Just install (via Joomla), insert an image (via Joomla) and resize to a smaller size (in the article editor via Joomla, just as you'd do now). In short, do *nothing* any differently than how you do it now... except you get beautiful slimbox displays of the images in your article - automatically.
I'm in love with this extension!
In my opinion only one thing is missing - the possibility to switch off the thumbnail-making for separate images. Sometimes you have to resize pictures but you altough do not want to have a big version of it on click...that would make it even better!
If you resize an image within the article, then all the images will pop-up with that particular article.
However, if in another article, you do not resize any images, then no pop-up will appear. Which is great because it means you have more control over which images you want as a gallery.
The developer should provide some documentation and images, to show exactly how to plugin should be installed, set-up properly and to show how one should edit the images.
Other than the above point (which is immaterial) this is a great plugin. Thanks a million.

Did not find any support site or forum so I thought of sharing the info here.
but it did not work ... has no support for me (in English or Portuguese) .. unfortunately ..
Write me e-mail and detailed describe your problem and give me link to your site.
Only issue I encountered was that the Highslide and Modal popup options conflicted with the Joomulus component but otherwise the Slimbox works just fine.
An awesome plugin.
Easy To Install Easy To Use :)
But I have encountered one problem, which it that it conflicts with "Sample Image Gallery" that am already using in my articles
the problem occur when I use them in the same article.. in that case all SIG images will become the same as mavik image!
but am still using it independently in some articles.
Just a suggestion...
It would be cool if the image pop-up limited it's size automatically to the browser window. That way you could just put any image of any size in the article, resize it for thumbnail, and when the user clicked on it, it wouldn't take up more than the screen size. If the user wanted to view the image larger than that, the pop up could have a link to download or view image in original size. I know the author could(and should) resize to a more user friendly size before upload, but this idea just adds more image options and leaves rooms for lazyness.
Anyways, I love it! Great Job!
Plugin don't work when you're editing article. It work when showing article. As others content plugins.
