Hi All,

I have seen around but not sure what their called a plugin that opens in the current window, on top of the existing webpage and opens a larger image of what was clicked.

I would like to have enlarged a few images when clicked so the text etc on the is more readable.

Are their any free ones?

Hope my poor description is understandable :?

Thanks

It's called a Lightbox usually. The one I use is; http://www.jacklmoore.com/colorbox but there are plenty out there to choose from.

Thanks for the link, the plugin worked great on my one page but for some reason not on this one https://dl.dropbox.com/u/104598901/Website/cost.html.

It loads the page in a blank, new window. I have copied the line from the working page into the body of the script and i get the same error just changes the picture which leads me to believe i have made an error somewhere with the scripts but i cannot see where. the 2 js scripts load perfectly in dreamweaver from this file and so does the css so location of these files are 100% correct.

The image i am trying to enlarge is in the third box down.

Any ideas?

Works for me on that page Crumpy1. When I click the 'Healthy Nutrition' image it fires Colorbox up perfectly :)

Crumpy1, if you have an issue be next time more specific in what browser you have that issue. Makes it easier for us to confirm.
Looking at your screenshot I see your issue is in Safari and I did check in Safari on my Mac and indeed colorbox is not loading correctly.
I will have a look for you.

Thanks, i appreciate you taking the time to look at this for me.

I have tried this in internet explorer 9 & safari 5 but go the same issue on this page, so i did not post anything about browsers as i assumed it was not browser related.

The colorbox plugin worked perfectly on this page https://dl.dropbox.com/u/104598901/Website/Programmes/H-Breakfast.html (3rd image down) in all browsers so ruled browser error out.

I am a bit stuck on how to fix this issue, so i eagerly await your comments

Thanks
