Lightbox Gallery

The Lightbox Gallery plugin changes the view of galleries to the lightbox.

How to use

How to use this plugin is basically the same as the way to add [gallery] which has been adopted by over WordPress 2.5. Lightbox Gallery plugin automatically converted the default view of gallery into the lightbox view. Photo captions are displayed as tooltips. Photo descriptions are displayed when the lightbox pops up.

Advanced settings

There are three additional options to extend the shorttag [gallery].

  • lightboxsize

The image size when the lightbox pops up. The default is medium, but you can change to full.

[gallery lightboxsize="full"]

  • meta

Defines whether the exif information is displayed. The default is false. If you want to show the photo info, set true. The exif shown on the lightbox includes camera body, aperture, focal length, shutter speed, and created timestamp.

[gallery meta="true"]

  • class

Adds a class attribute of the gallery. The default is gallery1.

[gallery class="gallery2"]

  • nofollow

Adds the attribute, rel="nofollow". The default is false.

[gallery nofollow="true"]

  • from, num

Defines from which and how many photos are displayed. If the number of photos is over that of num, the navigation will be shown. You can use the navigation option almost same as the wp_link_pages function.

[gallery from="5" num="10"]

  • pagenavi

If you would like not to show the navigation, set 0. The default is 1.

[gallery num="10" pagenavi="0"]
