How can I get lightbox 2 into Joomla?
And I mean the real one:
http://www.huddletogether.com/projects/lightbox2/
I already have the images, so I just want to add rel="lightbox" to my image link and the lightbox pops up.

Is there an extensions available or do I have to include the script files manually?

Thanks

I don't know of an extension that uses Lightbox 2 specifically, but JoomlaWorks has something similar that works very well with Joomla.

You can also check the Joomla Extension Directory to see if any use the script you specify:

http://extensions.joomla.org/search?q=lightbox

I used slimbox and included the script files manually in the header on index.php, load jquery, and use noconflict for the custom script in the header
