Thank you for the recent update!
By , for WP 4.1.1

Plugin works brilliantly, signed up to share my gratitude!

Why me?
By , for WP 4.1.1

I suppose that if I went through all the source code I could get it to work. But frankly, it's too much effort. And 27 pages of support tells it all.

It looks nice, though.

Too complicated
By , for WP 4.1

Got it working ok for images but even after half an hour could not make it work with youtube video so gave up and moved on to next lightbox plugin. Settings are all over the place and instructions are poor - too hard to figure out. I'm sure it functions fine once you figure it out but that's the hard part.

Works perfect

Thank you so much :-)

So many options! Brilliant!
By , for WP 4.0.1

After getting frustrated trying so many different lightbox plugins that just didn't do what I wanted, I am super impressed with Lightbox Plus Colorbox. The range of options in the settings is brilliant.

I thought the default settings were a little weird (blue ovelay with 100% opacity), but once I found where to change that, I was very happy with the level of customisation in the settings.

This is now my #1 lightbox plugin.

Good but not good enough
By , for WP 4.0

There are problems with using lightbox plus as a contact form pop-up, I've seen alot of unanswered question about this topic. the plugin works great to display images only, but the support is bad.

It simply does NOT work

Jet another plugin that wastes your precious time.

There are no instructions anywhere on how to use it. You click on every possible button, but nothing happens.

It. Simply. Does. Not. Work.

The mask is too dark

just as I said, the mask is too dark

Working at last
By , for WP 3.9.2

Yes it works.. ;)
Although i'm not getting it work in pages where i have used images. But it solved my problem.

Super plugin but JS not minified
By , for WP 3.9.2

I was looking for a lightbox plugin that put its JS at the bottom of the page and that allowed me to disable CSS to put it directly on my theme; I've found it here!
This plugin has just one JS and that's cool but please, minify it for next version!
