Inspired by a post on the Turning Gate, I’ve decided to give the good old Lightbox 2 and Greybox scripts a break and am now testing Shadowbox as the engine for all slideshows and web links on this blog. So far, the new script seems to be performing as well, if not better than the others and offers the added convenience of handling all media under one roof (I previously had to use Lightbox for images and Greybox for web pages.)

As usual, all images in an entry can be clicked on to enlarge and start the slideshow, which is then conveniently navigated with your left and right keyboard arrows; web links will open inside an overlay that avoids having to change windows, tabs or to reload or go back after visiting the new page.

I’ll be looking for comments and feedback, don’t be shy!
