    The images popup don’t seem to be responsive, while i have checked/enable the plugin’s option to fit the screen.

    Hi, SLB’s default themes are fully responsive, but with so many themes and plugin combinations, there is always the chance that there could be another theme/plugin causing a conflict. Please provide a link to a page that exhibits the issue you are experiencing and I would be glad to take a closer look.


    Here is a customer’s site:

    and the theme is Justwrite, an excellent theme, 100% responsive. Other similar plugins to yours work fully reposnsive but i prefere yours.

    Thanks. Is there a specific device/browser you’re seeing an issue in? I tested the link you provided on multiple desktop and mobile devices/browsers and the image and lightbox were responsive to the window’s size in all instances.

    Can you provide a screenshot of what you’re seeing when the lightbox is opened?

    I’m using Firefox but cheched with Chrome also. Same problem. Also my wife’s laptop, same problem.

    Let me explain better. When i open the lightbox everything is ok. Even in my cell.

    When i open a lightbox and then RESIZE my browser, it doensn’t resize.

    Maybe i worded wrong my problem. Still most other plugins behave right with that manual resize.

    Hi, thanks for the clarification. The priority is for the lightbox to be displayed properly on different devices (smartphone, tablet, desktop, etc.). Live resizing of the window is only possible on desktop browsers (i.e. not on mobile devices), and even then, is not a standard use-case.

    Live adjustments are nice, but unlike static blocks of text or images on a page, a lightbox floating above a page’s content is a bit more complex as more variables need to be taken into account when determining layout, size, position, etc. For one, this would require additional JavaScript to run during a page resize, which could affect performance. Instead, SLB limits intensive calculations to keep performance high, and makes sure that the lightbox is displayed appropriately for the browser’s size each time it is opened.

    SLB’s default themes are continually developed, so while the priority will always be standard use-cases and performance, visual tweaks such as live-resizing may be included in a future update.
