jQuery code for making post (message) thumbnails

edited October 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Maybe someone could use this simple jQuery script...

The idea is; When a user inserts an image into message (like via some WYSIWYG editor) he usualy ads something like; <img src="" />.

This jQuery code makes the image smaller and wraps it in anchor adding some attributes that are used by "lightBox" plugins, like jQuery LightBox or PrettyPhoto.

Requirement: jQuery lib

Live example:


jQuery(document).ready(function($) {

if( $(".Message").length > 0 ) {

var fpImage = $(".Message"); // message containing images
var maxWidth = 150; // maximum width of an image inserted into message
var rel = "prettyPhoto"; // you could use lightBox as well ... :)
var className = ""; // whatever you want it to be...

var count = 0;

fpImage.each(function() {

fpImage.find("img").each(function() {

// prepare the link title
var title = ( $(this).attr("title")!="" ) ? $(this).attr("title") : $(".DiscussionTabs .SubTab").text();

if( $(this).width() > maxWidth ) // if the width is bigger than maximum allowed

.css( "width", maxWidth+"px" ) // apply new maximum width
.wrap('<a href="'+$(this).attr('src')+'" title="'+title+'" rel="'+rel+'[gallGroup'+count+']" class="'+className+'" />'); // wrap with ancho
