Trying out Lightbox2 with Imagecache and Imagefield in Drupal 6

I have a new client that has hired me to build a small, Drupal-powered web site for his scholarship foundation. Since the site is very straight-forward and not slated to go live for a few weeks, I decided to see if I could build the site using Drupal 6. The big challenge is seeing if I can get all of the image functionality working (and stable) using the bevy of development- and alpha-versions of the necessary modules.

The idea is to be able to add an image field to the standard story and page content types and use ImageCache and Lightbox2 to display the images. As of this writing, the required modules are at various stages of development:

  • CCK: 6.x-2.0-rc6
  • Lightbox2: 6.x-1.8, but only the development version is working with CCK2 at this time.
  • ImageCache: 6.x-1.0-alpha2
  • ImageField: 6.x-3.0-alpha2
  • ImageAPI: 6.x-1.0-alpha2
  • FileField: 6.x-3.0-alpha4
