Social Gallery is the original Social Lightbox for WordPress. In this Lite version you get a usable Social Lightbox which is the product of many hours development – v2.0 represents hundreds of tweaks, fixes and improvements, handfuls of new features have been added to the premium v2.0 and this has made for a better “Lite” version too. While this version doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of the pro version it is still very usable! You don’t ever have to upgrade, but you can any time you want here and you can see the benefits here.
With Social Gallery your blog images are social, your visitors can use a familiar “facebook style” lightbox to view, like, comment & share your images. Social Gallery gets your blog more traffic and more engagement as well as offering a fantastic clean & poweful lightbox to boot.

NextGen and Justified Image Grid Compatible?
Note: While out-of-the-box compatibility for NextGen Gallery & Justified Image Grid plugin is not included with Social Gallery Lite it is possible to integrate Social Gallery Lite with these gallery plugins.
There is guides here and here but these are for the pro version. To use Social Gallery Lite & NextGen/Justified Image Grid you will need to use the “Specific CSS Selector” setting and write your own CSS selector (there’s a brief guide here.)
Upgrading to Social Gallery Pro
It’s quick and painless to get Social Gallery Pro (if you want to upgrade from Lite.) Simply Get Social Gallery on CodeCanyon and install your new plugin!

*Note: Social Gallery Lite does not have built-in compatibility for NextGen Galleries, though it can work with NextGen. Upgrade now for built-in compatibility.
- Does Social Gallery work with the Justified Image Grid plugin?
Yes. From V1.4 Justified Image Grid plugin compatibility is natively integrated into Social Gallery! Guide to using Social Gallery with Justified Image Grid Plugin*
See Social Gallery & Justified Image Grid (JIG) In action
*Note: Social Gallery Lite does not have built-in compatibility for Justified Image Grid plugin, though it can work with JIG. Upgrade now for built-in compatibility.
- Does Social Gallery work with the In-Post WordPress Galleries?
Yes. Provided you make sure your galleries are set to point image links towards “Image Files” and not “attachment pages” Social Gallery works well with the default in-post WordPress Galleries.
It is not responsive, does not work on smartphone. There is no translation.
The only thing you can actually share in the lite version is through facebook. so this isn’t really a social gallery. It’s a facebook gallery. Very misleading, IMO.
