Displays scaled plone content images inside Thickbox.

Project description


This package displays scaled Plone content images inside Thickbox.


If you upload a standalone image into your site this package allows you to display your image preview in a thickbox instead of redirecting to a stand-alone page.

Further, if you link from a scaled version to a full version of an image inside the TinyMCE editor this package allows you to display the full version view in a thickbox.

Finally, if you upload images as part of a News Item content object into dedicated Image Field, then you also will get it’s original size preview in a thickbox.


This add-on was tested for the Plone 4.0 and 4.1 series. So it works for both:

  • old style image scales source urls like /image_thumb
  • as well as for new /@@images/image/thumb-like urls provided by package


  • to add the package to your Zope instance, please, follow the instructions found inside the docs/INSTALL.txt file
  • then restart your Zope instance and install the collective.imageinbox package from within the portal_quickinstaller tool.


If you install this add-on, thickbox will be automatically attached to all scaled versions of content images. If you don’t want to provide a full version preview for any of your images, then you have an option to do this by adding a noThickBox class name to your image html tag.

This package uses the prepOverlay plugin of jQuery library to display thickboxes.
