- Thickbox: the documentation says it supports HTML content via the use of iframes. While I managed to get this to work with some sites, it didn’t work with others including google.com. I believe this is because of the addition of GET parameters to the url.
- Thickbox: in theory it should be possible to view videos in a thickbox, but it’s not enough to just provide it with a link to a video. It works quite nicely with Embedded Media Field videos though where the emfield module creates the embed object and inserts it into thickbox’s iframe.
- Shadowbox: multilingual support is available in the 5.x-1.0 version. 5.x-2.0 moves language support from the module to Shadowbox itself and proper options will be added to allow translation in the near future. Multi-lingual support will be added to the 6.x-1.x-dev version when it has a full release.
For reference, “grouped images” means that you can group images together and manually navigate between them using “next” and “previous” buttons. A “slideshow” means it’s possible to group images together and have the browser automatically traverse through them without clicking any buttons, usually accompanied by a play/pause feature. “Video” support means either that they can display flash content in the lightbox or video in a player within the lightbox.
