This is not built into Power CMS, you would need to add this functionality manually.

you would need to hand code the javascript to create the lightbox, here is one tutorial i found through google:

Thanks for your replies Jason.
Does this code go anywhere in the PowerCMS admin files, so that the lightbox appear as one of the options when inserting images in the backend, along with "new window" "popup" etc?

no, the Power CMS toolbars will not offer support for adding a new button option.


This is not supported functionality of Power CMS. it is possible to hand code the functionality, but it will require knowledge of javascript and Ajax to get working. I will not be able to offer assistance for this.
