This plugin doesn't work
By , for WP 3.9.1

Stop wasting your time on something that is not meant to work. Wasted hours on this plug-in with no support or documentation whatsoever and found a way better plugin that worked out of the box. Try lightbox by dFactory.

Did not work, documentation did not help - uninstalled
By , for WP 3.9.1

I tried to use version 2.7 for embedding an external site. Checked the settings, read the faq - but it did nothing. Maybe it works somewhere - but not on my multisite installation, (on other sites of my framework are other lightbox plugin activated - but not on this - maybe this is a reason for problems??). Found no helpful tipps how to fix the problems anywhere. Uninstalled.

Very confusing
By , for WP 3.8.1

I've spent way more time than I should've trying to add external page to lightbox. Looked at the demos, read some how-to articles, nothing worked. Check this checkbox, check that checkbox, set this and set that... and still no result. Even the docs/demos are confusing... check this sample code, but I won't tell you what checkboxes to check in order that this sample code to work.
Very confusing, very dissapointed.

Edit: ...and I don't see any support either, lots of users posted questions with responses only from community, not the author.

Not for Videos
By ,

There are way better solutions to have your YouTube video pop up in a light box as opposed to downloading this plugin and dealing with the bugs.
