VenoBox Lightbox

Description

This plugin adds the VenoBox Responsive Lightbox to links, displaying YouTube and Vimeo videos, images, galleries, iframe, Google Maps or other inline content in a responsive lightbox display.

Plugin option to open all linked images and galleries in WordPress in Lightbox mode.

The big difference compared to many others plugins like this is that VenoBox calculates the max width of the image displayed and preserves its height if is taller than the window (so in small devices you can scroll down the content, avoiding vertical microscopic resized images).

Option to disable Beaver Builder lightbox plugin.

Comprehensive usage is documented in the WP Admin > Dashboard > Settings > VenoBox Lightbox.

Reviews

not working for videos

gave you 5 stars because of the goof who gave you only 1 when he shouldn’t have

…else i’d have given it 4 🙂

please consider adding another meta option for displaying both an image title and caption – be nice to have the title at top and caption at bottom

thx!

It’s Stopped Working

This was a great little plugin until I recently updated it. Now it won’t work. When I click on an image, that’s supposed to be a video thumbnail that opens up a Venobox lightbox with a YouTube video, I just get a darkened screen with a pulsating dot in the middle of the screen.

It needs to be fixed. In the meantime, I’m going to have to take it off all the websites I use it on and find an alternative.

good
