Just for the fun of it, I modified the script so as to have some easy ways of dynamically inserting internal and external content into a given div via document.write. Here it is:

  4. Lightbox Bad, SlimBox Good

    The title overstates the point. Both these scripts in their latest versions are pretty darn good as are many of the other Lightbox type scripts out there (see end for two others or Google Lightbox for more, though not all are as good as those mentioned here, many including the original Lightbox mentioned in the title of this blog entry are).

    Here's the real story -

    Some time ago Dynamic Drive's Lightbox by Lokesh Dhakar was added to the Dynamic Drive official scripts. ...

  5. Broadcast your YouTube-playlists

    People using YouTube-playlists do so on their YouTube-channels, most of the time. But we don't need YouTube to broadcast our YouTube-playlists.
