FAlbum AJAX Lightbox

Since I moved GrinGod [dot] com to UH Hosting I have no longer had Gallery installed on the server, instead I use Flickr for hosting my images.

To display the images in my website I decided to go with FAlbum, a plugin for WordPress.  This morning I upgraded FAlbum to the latest version (0.6.4).  I also saw in Digg this morning a list of Downloadable AJAX Galleries, Slideshows and Effects.

One thing led to another and I ended up doing a mash-up of FAlbum and Lightbox JS.  Now, when you are viewing an image in my photos, you can click on one of the size links which (if you are using a modern browser) will display the selected image size in a nice Web 2.0 style lightbox.

If you want to use my mash-up I’ve made the modified files available on my download page.  Please note that I am not planning on supporting this mash-up and that I may well make changes to it in the future.  None of my changes have been or will be localised.
