Thanks to user contributions the module provides automated integration
with ImageField (CCK) + ImageCache and the Image module.

Drupal 7 and Colorbox as the recommended upgrade path

I will not release a Drupal 7 version of the Thickbox module. The Thickbox script is getting a bit old and is cumbersome to maintain well for all new browsers.

Instead I recommend the Colorbox module that I'm a co-maintainer of. I have ported over all of Thickbox features to it and then some, I think you will like it. Please try it out on your Drupal 6 test sites.

Please observe that you need jQuery Update version 6.x-2.x to run Colorbox in Drupal 6.


From the ThickBox homepage:

ThickBox is a webpage UI dialog widget written in JavaScript on top of the jQuery library. Its function is to show a single image, multiple images, inline content, iframed content, or content served through AJAX in a hybrid modal.
