A Web 2.0 Gallery Module

Earlier this week we released the Numinix Highslide Gallery for Zen Cart websites.  The add-on allows Zen Cart stores to display product images using the Highslide JS script written by Torstein Hønsi.  A demo of the HighSlide Gallery can be found at https://www.numinix.com or https://www.numinix.com/development/highslide/.

Highslide as described by Torstein Hønsi:

Highslide JS is an open source JavaScript software, offering a Web 2.0 approach to popup windows. It streamlines the use of thumbnail images and HTML popups on web pages. The library offers these features and advantages:

  • No plugins like Flash or Java required.
  • Popup blockers are no problem. The content expands within the active browser window.
  • Single click. After opening the image or HTML popup, the user can scroll further down or leave the page without closing it.
  • Compatibility and safe fallback. If the user has disabled JavaScript or is using an old browser, the browser redirects directly to the image itself or to a fallback HTML page.

The module works right out of the box and is configurable from within the Zen Cart admin.  Multiple image outlines are provided with the package as well as a PSD file for creating your own custom outlines.

The module is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 2.5 License which states that it cannot be used for commercial purposes unless authorized by the author. Torstein Hønsi sells commercial licenses for $29 USD per copy, but we’ve been able to reduce this amount to $25 CAD for Zen Cart websites who purchase the license through the Numinix website.
