After researching every single modal window, lightbox, slimbox, etc out there nothing fit the bill. Granted some of them were very nice but only fit a specific purpose, others were a nightmare on the code end, and others were just hacks of another. None of them truly supported all of the features we needed and those that were close could not be easily adapted without a bottle of Prozac near by.


Media Movies, Flash, PDF's... just link directly to the file!

External Sources Look Ma! It's like a popup window! (Other Domains)

Images Singles or Gallery Sets!

Instantiate 1 by 1 when you need to add one window or re-add it or whatever

Forms yes, yes it does work...

Pages Fixed width and Fluid.

Inline Content They call this a gimme :)

What are all of the features?

  • Automatically detects media and source.
  • Fully customizable via CSS.
  • NEW Instantiate a window on the fly instead of on page load.
  • NEW Toggle Gallery Tab visibility.
  • NEW iframes are removed from the DOM on lightWindow deactivation.
