Lightweight and works great.
By , for WP 3.9.1

I am testing this in a lightweight theme which contains a couple of plugins including another Lightbox plugin for images. This plugin runs great. It is easy to use and it can hold shortcodes inside of it.

Premium features are for deeper customizations like: automatically close on timeout, target devices, image overlay instead of solid color, etc..

Note to developer: My only suggestion at the moment is to list free features and premium features with a little more description on what they do. And I don't think the big banners to buy are necessary. If someone is using the plugin, the features themselves are enough selling point.

:: Reduced from 5 stars to 4 because of excessive purchase banners and branding on the plugin's page.

:: Reduced from 4 stars to 3 stars because it messes up Google Analytics while having the default "display as iframe" option on. Every page reports as /index.php?xyz_lbx=iframe ... I don't know if there is a solution for this, but it is definitely inconvenient.

Too intrusive
By , for WP 3.8.1

Too intrusive, too many ads. Now do mind that this isn't the only plugin I've installed, and most plugins do have some sort of promotional stuff in them. But this one was just too much. Uninstalled it right away.

Too Many Ads
By , for WP 3.4.2

The functionality of the app is fine, but the plugin is littered with overly large banners to upgrade to the pro version. I deleted the plugin as it isn't something I'd want a client to see. Even the listing of the plugin in the menu is styled with an odd gradient. Developers have to make a living, but when it comes to ads sometimes less is more.
