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 :(

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.

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

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.

needs update
By , for WP 3.9.1

Used to be my favorite Lightbox plugin, but lately there have been a lot of bugs... i.e. the settings are all reset after installation.

Would be very nice if this plugin could have some updates.

Lots of Potential, but has bugs.
By , for WP 3.6.1

First -- This plugin has a lot of potential. I love the secondary popups, with individual settings, what a great idea.

I have noticed at least a couple bugs. Nothing that has stopped me from using it, but it has affected the way I use it and want to use it.

It seems like this plugin developer just doesn't have the time or motivation to properly support it. Please donate to Dan so he can spend more time on it!

ex. As of now the FAQ link in the description is broken (for me anyway).

I don't mean to bash on the developer, Dan as obviously spent lots of time on the plugin. And I give him a big tip of my hat.
