WP jQuery Lightbox
[resolved] Configure Download link to "Save As" for JPEGs (3 posts)

    Can you make it an option to have the Download link in a lightbox prompt the browser to save the image to the users' computer? It would be very useful for a few projects.

    Here is an older custom version of your plugin with the option. I can't find where to make the changes on the new release. It would be an awesome option from the admin panel.

    No, I won't add this to the plugin. It's almost never a good idea to override the browser behaviour, and users can easily right-click to save (either on the Download-link or the image thumbnail).

    I am considering renaming the Download link though. "Open in new tab", "Direct link" or similar makes more sense than the current "Download".
