UPDATE 12/8/2016:  the new lightbox feature has been enabled site-wide.  You may notice many images need to be re-built before the lightbox can display them.  This is a one time process to re-calculate image dimensions to allow display of larger sizes for flickr, smugmug, and google (picasa).  It is necessarily slow to prevent overloading the server (there are more than a half million photos so we need to re-build them on the fly).

Labels should be working now as well. You need to be logged in.  To edit a label just click on the label and edit away.  To move a label drag the crosshairs.  To delete a label, delete the text (then hit save).  To add a new label click on the downward pointing arrow at the top right of the lightbox and click the appropriate option.

The lightbox should make viewing/navigating images much easier/faster.  It is touch friendly so you can swipe left/right (in addition to using the keyboard arrow keys) to navigate.  It will automatically fit images to the viewport and allow zooming in.

I would recommend posting at least 1600 pixel size images to flickr, google, etc. going forward.  The lightbox will automatically grab the largest size (up to 1600 pixels for larger screens and 1024 for smaller screens, and up 1200 pixels tall for panos).

Thanks for the quicker access to larger size photos (assuming the user uploaded them) AND captions displayed in the lightbox. It's important to encourage captions to avoid the "look at me in a pretty but unknown place" type photos that dominate Facebook, Pinterest and other sites.

OK, I made it so "open in new window" should always open the lightbox.  Be sure to refresh the page to get the latest version.

I do not see it on trip reports. For example on the following link I see it still open in the old fashion method: http://www.nwhikers.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=8022469

It works great on the test page mentioned on page one of this thread. It's responsive too, excellent choice of lightbox!  up.gif  up.gif

Still a few things I need to do before it goes live on the site.  First, I need to make the trip report page responsive for the lightbox to work properly.  Also need to get labels working.  Probably a few weeks away.

It was working great on the calendar. Will it be added to the rest of the site?

Good to hear.  One side effect with labels is they need to be zoomed 1:1 with the image (to maintain the positional integrity of any pointers which could be positioned left, right, bottom, top, middle, etc. or all of the above) so labels can look very big when the image is zoomed, particularly for vertical images.  It's a balancing act between making the labels large enough to read when zoomed out vs. too big when zoomed in.

One used to be able to click a person's username and then click a button to see all pictures posted by that user. (In addition to all TR's and posts, one could also click on all images by that user.) That feature seems to now be gone. Is this a side effect of lightbox?

Is there any way to get that feature back?

Good observation.  cool.gif Would be nice to have back, but isn't paramount.

Probably not for a while.  Will need to re-write that feature from scratch as the way it was originally done there were too many sort and display options which put too much stress on the server.  Will keep it simpler this time which should allow for more efficient coding.
