Lightbox for SharePoint

Sunday, August 30th, 2009

Few weeks ago a user posted a comment on the forum stating that a Lightbox webpart for SharePoint didn’t work with SPSlideShow. After some checking, it looked like there’s no go solution since Lightbox is based on a JavaScript which is incompatible with the one used in SPSlideShow. Our solution: a new, free, Lightbox clone (milkbox) based web part: SPElements Picture Gallery.

SPElements Picture Gallery works with Picture Library and displays clickable thumbnails gallery from the pictures in the library, which can either: (a) create lightbox-like popup, (b) open the image in the browser or (c) open the image item. All configurable by the SharePoint webpart administrator.

Slide show web part for SharePoint

Sunday, March 15th, 2009

It has been a while since the creation of the SPSlideShow web part, but I haven’t wrote the story behind it. At the time I was looking for a slide show web part, and I found few, even open source, but ALL of them were Flash or SilverLight based. SilverLight is good but not every enterprise got it installed, and Flash, well, I try to avoid Flash when I can, too many versions, with far too many unique problems (try using Flash 9.0.16 on IE6).

Anyhow I found this very good slide show JavaScript, and wrote a small wrapper web part around it (SPSlideShow). I think the end result is as good as good any Flash/SilverLight web parts, if not better.

p.s. use the forum for bug reports.
