GeeQuBox incorporates Leandro Vieira Pinho's lightbox plugin for jquery into MediaWiki's thumbnails and image galleries.

When a user clicks on an image in a gallery, the page darkens and the image is displayed full-size "on top of" the page. Clicking anywhere off the image returns everything to normal.

Images in galleries are treated as being part of a slideshow, and have "previous" and "next" images.

This extension is derived from and can be considered an upgrade from the SlimboxThumbs extension.





Mediawiki 1.17[edit]

You can download the most current version of the code directly via SVN from the MediaWiki source code repository, at http://svn.wikimedia.org/svnroot/mediawiki/trunk/extensions/GeeQuBox/. From a command line, you can use the following:

svn checkout http://svn.wikimedia.org/svnroot/mediawiki/trunk/extensions/GeeQuBox/

Mediawiki 1.16[edit]
