Slimbox2 Slideshow is a WordPress plugin used to display Lightbox effects on images. It supports image resizing to fit images in the browser window and automatic slideshow. With advantages over other existing Lightbox plugins being;
- Slideshow can show entire WordPress images from multiple posts.
- Automatically resizes images to fit in browser window.
- Support for WordPress galleries with captions and Image Maps.
- No need to modify exisiting image html, and can directly substitute existing plugins that use rel=”lightbox”.
- Uses jQuery library, which means faster initial load.

Automatic Image Link Tagging:
enabled – no need to do anything, images will automatically be shown in a Lightbox when clicked.
disabled (advanced) – rel=’lightbox’ attribute will need to be manually added to the image ‘a’ element after the ‘href’ attribute.
Add a ‘title’ attribute after the ‘href’ attribute to show a caption on the image i.e. title=”this is a caption”
Slideshow of all blog images:
Simply create a link to url “#slideshow” (or even just “#slide”), i.e. href=”#slide”. On click a full slideshow of all your images will start.
