Default What happened to Lightbox?

I moved DW to a new computer recently and when I went to add a lightbox to a page it turned out that I no longer can access my Widget Browser. And it seems it's obsolete now. So bow do I get Lightbox back?

You mean Lightbox is discontinued, or Widget Browser or both?

Looks like I'll just have to use the code from another page. Thanks.

These are nice lightweight alternatives that work very well.

Featherlight in particular is really easy to work with and restyle.

@Ricky - do they support multiple images? so you can open anyone and then proceed to previous or next?

Yes Dave they both do.

They are excellent IMO.

I used to be a fan of Colorbox but these are lightweight, easier to customise and look better.

Why would Lightbox be discontinued when it was so incredibly popular? Thanks for the links Ricky but it's easy enough to grab the code from another page/site and recycle it.

And I'm sure you are familiar with Widget Browser. It opened from within DW (it opened up from a dropdown menu just to the right of the "DW" logo top left, in DW CS5. Which I still use, happily.
