MediaPress provides an easy to use API for opening media, gallery or activity attachments in lightbox. Internally, we use Magnific Popup for the lightbox.

This API is for javascript based applications.

API Functions

  • mpp.lightbox.gallery(gallery_id, position, fallback_url, media_id)  :- Open all media in a gallery in the lightbox.

  • mpp.lightbox.update(content) :- Update the content of the current lightbox view with the given html. Only works if lightbox is open.
  • mpp.lightbox.getCurrentMediaID() :- Gives the id of the media currently being viewed in the lightbox
  • mpp.lightbox.reloadCurrentMedia():- reloads the lightbox with the content of current media. It is helpful for reloading after updating media etc.
  • mpp.lightbox.reloadMedia(media_id):- Loads the given media id’s content in currenly opened lightbox view. If you want to open a lightbox with a given media, please use mpp.lightbox.media() instead.

In all the functions, the position determines which of the photo from the collection will be displayed when the lightbox opens.

fallback_url ats as a fallback. When there is no media or some error, the user will be redirected to the fallback url.

mpp:lightbox:opened event is triggered on the document object when the lightbox opens. The even listener should be attached on document object and will receive three arguements

  • Event Object
  • media items collection(array)

The event mpp_lightbox_opened is deprecated and we strongly recommend to use  mpp:lightbox:opened instead. mpp_lightbox_opened will be removed in 1.5.0.
