It seems the only plugin with Photoswipe which isn't outdated. Photoswipe is the best type of lightbox. I donated to this plugin. I think I'll have to revert images to default WordPress behaviour if this plugin loses support.

I'v been searching quite a bit until I've found a photoswipe plugin that's working as it should. There has been a little problem with it and the support helped within hours and updated the plugin.

To the author, after installing your plugin, i searched for my forgotten wordpress user just to thank you for your effort, time and design, actually plugin like yours MUST be at top of list, wordpress should give us more criteria for searching instead of wasting our times in digging.
