Lytebox

I just started to experiment a bit with a javascript code called Lytebox. I saw how well it blends into Shape's blog and now I'm experimenting a bit. You can see it in action if your browser has javascript enabled. Just click on the image of my previous post or simply click here. The additional work to make an image appear like that is minimal, but there is one thing I'm not sure if I like it: It automatically scales the images down according to the browser window size and the image quality suffers from the downsampling. If I use it on a regular basis, I might upload a bit smaller images and take out the resizing code.

i cannot see the lytebox effect :) (Firefox 2.0.0.4)

i took a look at your html source. the lytebox-stuff is included outside the head. could that cause the problem ?

I moved it inside the "head". Don't think there is much more I can do.

The Lytebox doesn't show up if you come here via fluck.de.
I think this is because I used frames there...
I'll change this and some other things soon.

its a foreign hostet block, isn't it? i thought it, because i've tried to debug your problem with firebug and i have no possibility to have a look at your sourcecode (only a long js-script). if so, it could be, that your provider block javascript-actions concerning securtity-problems (u see, i dont know anything about using a blog ;))? i think its not a problem of the frames.

btw: i cannot find the lytebox on shapes blog....

I'm impressed how helpful you guys are. The good thing is that the images are still viewable even if the lytebox doesn't show up, whatever the reason might be. So it wouldn't really bother me too much.
