We have seen a lot of changes over the past few months from the various products of Google – be it the introduction of new social networking site – Google+ (or) just upgrading its products like gmail, blogger,etc.. with lots more features. Today, as I sat to test the working of a script, I found a unique piece of script attached with the template – light box effect for images on blogger. May be you have a question on your mind say, what is actually a Lightbox effect?
Simple, it is an effect wherein only your images are accessible while the background goes opaque. In other words, when you click on a image in your blog, you will be able to see only the image while the other widgets and content go black with some opacity added to it. You may Google about the same, to further find information and live demos, about various Lightbox scripts available around the web.
As mentioned earlier in the article, I’m able to see the script for Lightbox effect on my blog’s page source. You may check out the screen shots below.
Well, do you see a similar script being attached to your blogger/blogspot blog? Or do you see the effect straight away? Please, share your opinions via comments below. I would love hear from you guys:)
How to check whether the script is added to your BlogSpot blog?
It is pretty simple to view the page source of your blog when your browser is Firefox. Just a right click anywhere on the web layout will show the page source of a blog. Now, search using “CTRL+F” for the following text – lightbox. I’m sure you’ll find it somewhere on your blog. Do you? Users on other browsers (like IE, Opera) can view the page source by using the Menu Bar – View >> Source.
So, don’t forget to share what you see via comments below – be it the complete effect or just the addition of scripts.
Update: So it’s confirmed BlogSpot rolled out Lightbox effect and here is a tutorial which will show how you can disable Lightbox effect in BlogSpot.
