Great.

Installed and was working in under 30 seconds. All images on site now magically appear in light box without having to do a thing. I love it.

flawless
By , for WP 3.9

Using it on the newest WordPress version, don't need to change a single option. All my images pop up in to a lightbox window.

changing the font
By ,

Is it possible to change the size of the font? I mean when the photo is displayed in lightbox? How to do it?

Excellent
By , for WP 3.9

I needed a Band-Aid for photos on http://www.philsimon.com. I didn't like how WP was handling them, although to be fair it might be my theme. Anyway, the plugin does exactly what it says, save for a special speaking page that requires a few tweaks.

Very Smooth Lightbox Functionality with great support
By , for WP 3.9

Have to give Archetyped their dues... they've created, as far as I can find, the simplest and most reliable Javascript Lightbox functionality in any WordPress plugin.

I tried and experimented with quite a few, and this is the only one that worked and consistently worked really well. I have it on my essentials plugin list for all my sites that embed images on posts.

Great job well done, and thank you!
Paul.

Right out of the box!
By ,

It worked right out of the box. Like it says, "simple". And responsive too! Well, 100% responsive when opening the image link. If you resize the browser while the light box is open, it will maintain the same size instead of shrink or expand in real time.

I did not dock a point for this, because it did not advertise that it would function this way.

What it did do, was work right after installing. Other "Responsive Lightbox"s wasted hours of my life trying to get it to work correctly, before I gave up on them.

Thanks for the quality product!
