    Sorry to hear you’re having trouble with SLB. As long as your site meets SLB’s minimum requirements, using SLB really is as simple as installing and activating it. Supported links in posts will then automatically be displayed in the lightbox when clicked.

    For more detailed instructions, there’s also SLB’s beginner’s guide.

    Finally, if you would like to provide a link to a page that exhibits the issue you are experiencing, I would be glad to take a look.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I’ve reinstalled Simple Lightbox on my blog, and this time I’ve managed to get it to work.

    The problem I had was that I was looking for the code. It turns out that there’s no code needed.

    Unfortunately, I went through the rigmarole of deactivating plugins and double checking everything.

    A two minute screencast video would have saved me several hours of guessing and frustration.

    Believe me, I know the hoops some plugins make you jump though. That’s exactly why SLB exists.

    SLB’s 1-step instructions (because that’s really all it takes) are on SLB’s plugin page (Usage section) and SLB’s home page. This seems even simpler and faster than watching a 2-minute video, but please let me know if you have any feedback on how this could be simplified further for others.

    Nonetheless, I will admit that it is strange to receive a low rating for requiring less work than expected 🙂

    Update: This plugin is incompatible with CDN.

    If you have CDN, your images will appear on a different window.

    This other plugin works great: https://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-fancybox/

    I can’t believe how much time I’ve wasted with Simple Lightbox. If it wasn’t one thing, it was another. Fortunately, I’ve now found a great alternative.
