It simply does NOT work
By ,

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

Working at last

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!

No Support?!

It is the best plugin of its kind that I have found.
Thank you very much!

This plugin doesn't work

Stop wasting your time on something that is not meant to work. Wasted hours on this plug-in with no support or documentation whatsoever and found a way better plugin that worked out of the box. Try lightbox by dFactory.

Works great once I reset it
By , for WP 3.9.1

I struggled to get it to work properly ... my video was opening full screen and I thought the lightbox wasn't working. I did a lot of troubleshooting thinking it was conflicting with plugins, caching, and/or minify. Before giving up entirely, I reset/re-initialized and then it worked perfectly.

Did not work, documentation did not help - uninstalled
By , for WP 3.9.1

I tried to use version 2.7 for embedding an external site. Checked the settings, read the faq - but it did nothing. Maybe it works somewhere - but not on my multisite installation, (on other sites of my framework are other lightbox plugin activated - but not on this - maybe this is a reason for problems??). Found no helpful tipps how to fix the problems anywhere. Uninstalled.

Tried many other lightbox plugins, but this one wins
By , for WP 3.9.1

Tons of features. Default "recommended" values are not set automatically when first installed, which is a little odd. Once you set those, and start experimenting, the power of this plugin shines. I've tried other lightbox plugins that have some features this lacks (like displaying image EXIF data, or providing original file download). But the other features of this lightbox far overpower this. This includes ability to work on a per page basis, detect any image links and convert to lightbox links, display slideshows, and fully customize styles of lightbox, transition effects and more.
