I posted a guide on how to replace IP.Boards native lightbox with Highslide about a year ago here:
I decided today that I should finally take a shot at converting this modification into a simple hook. I use Highslide for all of my community forums and I love it, though I've made a few small tweaks since writing the above guide.
What is "Highslide?"
Highslide is a lightbox or "JavaScript Thumbnail Viewer." This hook is meant to offer a drop-in replacement for IP.Boards native lightbox. If you want a preview of Highslide in action, see the demo link.
Does this only work for post attachments?
Currently, yes. I plan on updating it in the near future to expand the functionality to IP.Downloads and IP.Gallery as well.
I also plan on adding more settings for things such as transition effects and thumbnail galleries. Right now this hook is very basic with only three settings. One to enable/disable the hook, one to enable/disable Highslide's credits and one setting to make the script dark template friendly.
 By downloading this hook you agree to the following terms and conditions,
  • Licensing - This hook is completely free for use: you are allowed to use and modify it however you wish. You are welcome to use and redistribute this modification in your own hooks, applications or templates within the IPS marketplace, so long as your submission remains free. This hook is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
  • Support - This is a freely distributed hook and support will only be offered on a limited basis.
  • Commercial Use - If you wish to use this hook on a commercial website, please purchase a commercial license from Highslide.
