I’ve released version 2 of my FAlbum AJAX lightbox hack. My previous hack required users to select a photo and then select an image size to show in the lightbox. Now, in version 2, simply selecting an image will show that image in the lightbox in the medium image size.

One of the limitations of this hack is that users can no longer view further information about the picture… but I think thats a fair price to pay. All I want is for users to be able to see a bigger version of the thumbnails, which is exactly what this hack gives. The option is still in the FAlbum admin panel to enable and disable the lightbox (although I haven’t actually tested it with this new version).

As with the previous release I have provided both the modified files and the complete FAlbum source. They are available on my downloads page.

Once again, I should point out that this hack is not fully tested with all versions of WordPress, I don’t provide any sort of warranty, and this hack will not work with any future version of FAlbum (unless I upgrade FAlbum and decided to keep the lightbox).
