Responsive and touch-friendly lightbox for WordPress.

Has no options. It will run on posts/pages/attachments. It will NOT run on categories, archives, front page etc.

This plugin uses the excellent ImageLightbox.js by Osvaldas Valutis.

There aren’t any at the moment!

How to change the imagelightbox type?

At the moment there is no way to change the type unless you edit the code of the plugin. Inside wp-imagelightbox.php you can edit the line containing $type="f". Change the letter “f” to different types that you can see on Osvaldas Valutis’ demo page.


Love it

As a realtor, my sites depend on images. Big images with few distractions surrounding them. This gives me EXACTLY what I want. I’m new to WP so this is so easy to use. Many thanks!

Prostota i elegancja

Brakuje chociażby kilku podstawowych opcji, jednakże działa najszybciej, najlepiej, i zawsze dostosowuje się do sytuacji.

  • Forgot to add the new .js name to the repo (can we have git, please,


  • Fixed version number loading


  • Added a “view original image” button which opens the current image in a new tab
  • Defaulting to mode=f which corresponds to Osvaldas’ “combination” mode
  • Stuff that I forgot?


  • Fixed dependency on jQuery


  • Tweaked the CSS a bit. Overlay is now dark, nav is “tigther”. Looks better on mobiles phones, too (imho).
