    Should be in the latest version.

    How do I configure this and/or set it up. Can’t figure it out.

    I would really like to hear if this feature has been added or not to the latest version?

    I must be missing something basic as well – anyone figure this out? I see that the autolaunch feature has been activated in the newest version, but how do I actually make the call in my WordPress page? Sample code, anyone?

    This feature would save me countless hours!

    Can someone reply?

    Auto open on page load will work only when Use for Page/Post settings and User For Page are active. You can then set specific settings (including auto open) in a metabox on the page editor (on only on pages no posts).

    I have just achieved this on my site – example of it working for a picture: My test

    There are 2 main steps towards getting it to work.

    Firstly, in the plugin options you need to tick the “Add Inline Lightboxes” option. A new section will be displayed at the bottom of the page. For one of these options, choose to ‘Auto Open’.

    Secondly, you need to add the code for the Inline Lightbox. This has 2 parts. Part 1 is the stuff you want displayed on the page itself (so maybe you want the video to be displayed there too, or if you want nothing, then use a 1×1 image which is essentially hidden). Part 2 is the inline part which is displayed in the lightbox. It consists of a hidden outer div, and an inner div that contains the content.

    This code makes a video pop up from (what looks like) nowhere. If you want the video to be on the page to, simply replace the image with the video’s code:

    <a class="lbp-inline-link-2" title="movie" href=""><img alt="" src="" width="1" height="1" /></a>
    <div style="display: none;">
    <div id="lbp-inline-href-2" style="padding: 10px; background: #fff;"><iframe src="" height="500" width="500" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0"></iframe></div>
