  • Is there any way someone could make this js more selective about when it is called? It seems to get called no matter what file I pick whether it is a picture, pdf, doc, whatever. The js always gets activated. Thanks

  • Can somebody adapt this plugin to be able to use images in BBCode syntax? Thanks.

  • How can i use little pictures without lightbox and large pictures with lightbox in one page ?
