Installation: ------------ 1. Download and unpack the Colorbox plugin in "sites/all/libraries". Make sure the path to the plugin file becomes: "sites/all/libraries/colorbox/jquery.colorbox-min.js" Link: https://github.com/jackmoore/colorbox/archive/1.x.zip Drush users can use the command "drush colorbox-plugin". 2. Download and unpack the Colorbox module directory in your modules folder (this will usually be "sites/all/modules/"). 3. Go to "Administer" -> "Modules" and enable the module. If you want to use Colorbox with the Embedded Media Field module please check "Enable Colorbox load" in the settings. Configuration: ------------- Go to "Configuration" -> "Media" -> "Colorbox" to find all the configuration options. Use the Views Colorbox Trigger field: ------------------------------------ TODO Add a custom Colorbox style to your theme: ---------------------------------------- The easiest way is to start with either the default style or one of the example styles included in the Colorbox JS library download. Simply copy the entire style folder to your theme and rename it to something logical like "mycolorbox". Inside that folder are both a .css and .js file, rename both of those as well to match your folder name: i.e. "colorbox_mycolorbox.css" and "colorbox_mycolorbox.js" Add entries in your theme's .info file for the Colorbox CSS/JS files: stylesheets[all][] = mycolorbox/colorbox_mycolorbox.css scripts[] = mycolorbox/colorbox_mycolorbox.js Go to "Configuration" -> "Media" -> "Colorbox" and select "None" under "Styles and Options". This will leave the styling of Colorbox up to your theme. Make any CSS adjustments to your "colorbox_mycolorbox.css" file. Load images from custom links in a Colorbox: -------------------------------------------- Add the class "colorbox" to the link and point the src to the image you want to display in the Colorbox. Load content in a Colorbox: --------------------------- Check the "Enable Colorbox load" option in Colorbox settings. This enables custom links that can open content in a Colorbox. Add the class "colorbox-load" to the link and build the url like this "[path]?width=500&height=500&iframe=true" or "[path]?width=500&height=500" if you don't want an iframe. Other modules may activate this for easy Colorbox integration. Load inline content in a Colorbox: ---------------------------------- Check the "Enable Colorbox inline" option in Colorbox settings. This enables custom links that can open inline content in a Colorbox. Inline in this context means some part/tag of the current page, e.g. a div. Replace "id-of-content" with the id of the tag you want to open. Add the class "colorbox-inline" to the link and build the url like this "?width=500&height=500&inline=true#id-of-content". It could e.g. look like this. Link to click
What ever content you want to display in a Colorbox.
Other modules may activate this for easy Colorbox integration. Load a selection of forms in a Colorbox: ---------------------------------------- Check the "Enable Colorbox load" option in Colorbox settings. The following form_id can be used: * contact_site_form * user_login * user_login_block * user_register * user_pass The links to open a form needs the class "colorbox-load". The URL should look like this. "/colorbox/form/[form_id]?destination=[path_to_send_user_to_after_submit]&width=[with_in_pixel]&height=[height_in_pixel]". Here is an example where the user register form is opened in an 500 by 250 pixel Colorbox. Create new account Drush: ------ A Drush command is provides for easy installation of the Colorbox plugin itself. % drush colorbox-plugin The command will download the plugin and unpack it in "sites/all/libraries". It is possible to add another path as an option to the command, but not recommended unless you know what you are doing. Image in Colorbox not displayed in Internet Explorer 8: ------------------------------------------------------- If your theme has CSS like this (popular in responsive design): img { max-width: 100%; } Internet Explorer 8 will have problems with showing images in the Colorbox. The fix is to add this to the theme CSS: #cboxLoadedContent img { max-width: none; }
