How does this work?
"Lightbox" was the original engine for the now famous effect that has spread like wildfire around the web over the past year or two, becoming the defacto Web 2.0 method of displaying images. However, as with most things, more efficient copies come along.
At only 30kb Slimbox is a much smaller download than than Lightbox which weights in at over 100Kb. Since JS tends not to be cached so well by browsers this offers genuine speed increases to users. In addition it is powered by Mootools effects, making it much more customisable than Lightbox.
Props to: Christophe Beyls (http://www.digitalia.be/software/slimbox) for writing Slimbox, Yukio Arita (http://homepage.mac.com/yukikun/software/slimbox_ex/) for extending it to work with iframes and Alex Clarke for the original ZL plugin which inspired me to write this.
This probably works with ZenCart 1.3.x , although I have only tested on 1.3.7.
