Works well
By , for WP 4.2.4

I like this plugin because the features are customisable, but I feel the user interface is a little awkward to use.

Good

Do not crush with Photonic
Helped me twice

In older version there was option to resize image to full size, Do not see it in new version.

Good but

I needed this specifically to load an image into a light box from the widget area. This for some reason wont do this :(

Works good if you only have one inline lightbox.

Works good if you only have one inline lightbox on your page. I added some custom html which is scrollable. When I open the next lightbox it opens already scrolled down, instead of starting from the top. I've initiated a support ticket but support seems terrible. I can see so many questions with no replies.

Confusing, gets struck
By , for WP 4.2.2

If you have images with different sizes, controls will constantly be on differnet positions.
Next link does not always work.
There are many settings, which are extremely confusing. (The help text is not written very well).
Overall not as pretty as a lightbox.
I deleted the plugin.

Works for all the usual colorbox settings but breaks jetpack tiled galleries
By , for WP 4.2.2

With this plugin installed, the jetpack tiled galleries layout options disappear from the media/gallery editor.

Have a try opening a youtube video in lightbox mode via 5' smartphones.
"Enjoy".

Full of bugs
By , for WP 4.2.2

There are some annoying bugs so I replaced Lightbox Plus Colorbox with a different solution.

In Chrome there is always a extra thin blue border with some themes (but not in Firefox). Some themes are completely destroyed, the buttons are not seen and other stuff. There is some grouping of images but no group was set and in the settings this was completely disabled.

This plugin is no recommendation and needs a completely overhaul or rewriting.
