View Full Version : PHP Image Gallery Script and Lightbox 2 Integration

07-10-2008, 08:33 PM
I need help applying the Lightbox 2 features to my PHP Image Gallery Script. The lightbox effect works on the first page of images however is inactive on all following pages.

Please take a look at these URLS. I've also posted the code below. Thank you.


<script src="../-image_server/thumb/trout/getpics.php" type="text/javascript"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">

* PHP Photo Album script- Dynamic Drive DHTML code library (www.dynamicdrive.com)
* Visit http://www.dynamicDrive.com for hundreds of DHTML scripts
* This notice must stay intact for legal use

var dimension="5x5" //Specify dimension of gallery (number of images shown), such as 4x2, 3x1 etc
var imagepath="http://www.ashevilleanglers.com/-image_server/thumb/trout/" //Absolute path to image directory. Include trailing slash (/)
var rel="lightbox[trout]" //Enter target attribute of links, if applicable

//Toggle popup link setting: popupsetting[0 or 1, "pop up window attributes" (if 1)]
var popupsetting=[0, "width=800px, height=800px, scrollbars, resizable"]

//Toggle image description: descriptionprefix[0 or 1, "Text to show" (if 1)]
var descriptionprefix=[0, "Photo "]

//Sort images by date? ("asc", "desc", or "")
//"desc" for example causes the newest images to show up first in the gallery
//"" disables this feature, so images are sorted by file name (default)
var gsortorder="desc"

//By default, each image hyperlinks to itself.
//However, if you wish them to link to larger versions of themselves
//Specify the directory in which the larger images are located
//The file names of these large images should mirror those of the original
//Enter a blank string ("") to disable this option
var targetlinkdir="http://www.ashevilleanglers.com/-image_server/large/trout/"

/////No need to edit beyond here///////////////////

function sortbydate(a, b){ //Sort images function
if (gsortorder=="asc") //sort by file date: older to newer
return new Date(a[1])-new Date(b[1])
else if (gsortorder=="desc") //sort by file date: newer to older
return new Date(b[1])-new Date(a[1])

if (gsortorder=="asc" || gsortorder=="desc")

var totalslots=dimension.split("x")[0]*dimension.split("x")[1]

function buildimage(i){
var imagecompletepath=(targetlinkdir!="")? targetlinkdir+galleryarray[i][0] : imagepath+galleryarray[i][0]
var tempcontainer='<a href="'+imagecompletepath+'" rel="'lightbox'">'
tempcontainer+='<img src="'+imagepath+galleryarray[i][0]+'" title="'+galleryarray[i][0]+' ['+galleryarray[i][1]+']" />'
tempcontainer+='</a><br />'
tempcontainer+=(descriptionprefix[0]==1)? descriptionprefix[1]+(i+1) : ""
return tempcontainer

function jumptopage(p){
var startpoint=(p-1)*totalslots
var y=1;
for (i=0; i<totalslots; i++){
document.getElementById("slide"+i).innerHTML=(typeof galleryarray[startpoint+i]!="undefined")? buildimage(startpoint+i) : ""

var curimage=0
for (y=0; y<dimension.split("x")[1]; y++){
for (x=0; x<dimension.split("x")[0]; x++){
if (curimage<galleryarray.length)
document.write('<div id="slide'+curimage+'" class="slideshow">'+buildimage(curimage)+'</div>')
document.write('<br style="clear: left" />')

function popuplinkfunc(imgsrc){
if (popupsetting[0]==1){
var popwin=open(imgsrc.href, "popwin", popupsetting[1])
return false
return true


<!--Below HTML code refers to the navigational links for the gallery-->

<div id="navlinks">
<script type="text/javascript">

I just viewed the site and noticed that you may have solved the problem of integrating lightbox2 into the php image gallery script.

Would you mind sharing what you did to solve the issue as I am wanting to do the same.

Ps. Wouldn't it be nice if php image gallery supported lightbox 2 right out of the box.

This is an old thread dealing with older versions of the scripts involved. See:


for info on integrating the most recent versions.
