prettyPhoto 3.0: Beta

March 15th 2010

Here it is! The beta version of prettyPhoto 3.0. Why beta? Because there are several big changes in this version and before making it official, I really want it to be working properly. I tested the usual stuff myself, but I really want to throw it out to the community so you guys can test it.

Summary of changes

  • Ability to initialize multiple prettyPhoto with different settings
  • When opening a gallery in prettyPhoto an inline gallery is presented over the photo. See post thumbnail.
  • Slideshow! See settings in jquery.prettyPhoto.js
  • Changed defaut theme, “facebook” theme is now default.
  • Changed the default speed to fast, feels snappier now.
  • Code optimization, removed about 70 lines of crap.


So you want to test it? You can find the demo page here:

I suggest you test it on your website, you can find a zip file here:

Please note that since it’s a beta, you should retest everything on your own to make sure nothing breaks.

Bug reports

Please report any bug in that thread in the forums. I’ll do m y best to get them squashed to release that update as quickly as possible.

  1. By the way I changed my PrettyPhoto JS code so that it works better with smartphones.
    My simple hack:
    $(window).unbind(‘scroll’).scroll(function(){ scrollPos = _getScroll(); /*_centerOverlay();*/ });

    That way mobile phones can scroll and see the popup, and close it or whatever.

    It would be fine with a better solution for mobile phones/small screens, but my JS skills are not that high

    Hope it helps others

    excellent ce prettyPhoto! merci beaucoup de le partager!! 🙂

    J’ai relevé un p’tit “bug” (FF 3.5.11, Fedora 12): quand on clique sur l’icone en haut à droite de l’image, pour l’agrandir, si on referme la boite sans recliquer sur cette icone, à l’image suivante le clique pour agrandir l’image ne produit pas l’effet escompté mais il semble plutôt tenter de réduire l’image…

    Voilà j’espère que c’est clair cette description… (désolé de pas m’être inscrit sur le forum pour ce rapport de bug, mais c’est trop fastidieux l’inscription chez vous ><).

    Bonne continuation.

    @adams: For security purposes, Facebook does not allow people to iframe the site. It cannot be done.

    The IFrame option doesn’t work in the new IE9 Beta. The prettyPhoto box is the correct width, but not the correct height. You can barely see any of the content. The only modifications that I’ve made are to change the location of the pictures in the CSS file, otherwise it’s a stock download.

    Eventually, I’ll sit down and try to figure out why it isn’t working. Right now my site is still in production. Just thought I’d let ya’ know.

    We have the same problem with IE 9 Beta. Height value is not interpreted the right way and you can see only upper part of an image.

    Evidently, this was a bug in IE9 beta. PrettyPhoto works again in IE9RC.

    (I’m just posting this for people who search for PrettyPhoto and IE 9 error)

  13. Regularly I will be learning somewhat more about NodeJS. It truly is definately the ultimate language to get familiar with long-term. I just concluded the BackSpace.Academy Amazon Certified Developers path. It really has displayed a completely new Arena of programs for me. Now I need to spare the time in order to get programming!
