Hi all,

I'm trying to incorporate lightbox into the SS cms. Just wondering what is th best best to do such a thing. Do I create a css class, how does it reduce the size of a full image for thumbnail preview etc???

First time trying ot setup a module like this for SS.

Any help or advice would be great

I think it's more of a question that can be answered by the documentation for your lightbox, don't you think? Silverstripe doesn't care what Javascript plugins you use.

There are a number of ways to generate thumbnails. The easiest way is $YourImage.SetWidth(100), but there are other GD functions available for different resampling processes.
