The SlimboxThumbs extension incorporates Christophe Beyl's fullsize image viewer Slimbox 2 into MediaWiki's thumbnails and image galleries.
When a user clicks on a thumbnailed image or an image in a gallery, the page darkens and the image is displayed full-size "on top of" the page. A caption below the image includes the image's title and a link to its description page, along with the caption on the thumbnail, if any. Clicking anywhere off the image returns everything to normal.
SlimboxThumbs displays a lightbox for an image on the page if:
- It is a thumbnail, and not already a full-sized image.
- It is linked to an image page (
File:Something.jpg). If the thumbnail is linked to a random URL or not linked to anything, there will be no lightbox - the idea is to have a way of cancelling lightbox for some images. Also you can link the thumbnail to another image's page, and this another image will be shown in the lightbox.
Such thumbnails, including images in galleries, are treated as being part of a slideshow, and have "previous" and "next" images. If an image is bigger than 90% of current viewport size, a respective thumbnail is shown using
This is a rewritten version of this extension which was discontinued by its original author, David Raison.
