    The lightbox feature will be available in version 2.3.0, which has yet to be released. You can try to combine a lightbox plugin with the slideshow to create the same effect. You can find a couple of tips on how to do this in this thread.

    In this file you have to locate line number 57, where the <img /> tag is visible. Make this line look like this:

    <img src="<?php echo htmlspecialchars($imageSrc); ?>" alt="<?php echo $alt; ?>" rel="lightbox" <?php echo ($imageWidth > 0) ? 'width="' . $imageWidth . '"' : ''; ?> <?php echo ($imageHeight > 0) ? 'height="' . $imageHeight . '"' : ''; ?> />

    This all looks pretty straight forward but I can’t find the <img/> tag on line 57 this is what I can see

    if (empty($alternativeText))
    				$alternativeText = htmlspecialchars($attachment->post_content);

    Has the document changed since you posted the instructions?

    Yes, it’s moved down a lot of lines. It still looks very similar, so you should be able too find it.

    Hi I found the code on line 97, saved zipped up the whole plugin file uploaded successfully on WordPress, activated the light-box plugin and it still won’t work: Did I miss a step?
