Works perfectly
By , for WP 4.4.2

I read all of the reviews, including comments to reviews, and decided to take a chance on this plugin. I needed a lightbox plugin that allowed the user to enable/disable the plugin depending on content type (post, page, widget, etc.) and this plugin purports to do that.

After installing the plugin and tweaking settings, which took all of 5 minutes, the plugin is working as advertised. One thing I learned is that the effectiveness of this plugin depends on how the images are linked (media file, attachment page, none, etc.) when adding the media. This will dictate whether or not lightbox will even activate for a given media file.

The plugin works as advertised and I am very happy with it. Thank you!

Just what I was looking for
By , for WP 4.4.1

I like the simple things in life, such as this light box plugin, as it just works, on most posts.

However, even though I have given it 5 stars, it doesn't work on all posts. It seems only to do its job on older posts. Newer posts, nothing happens, and I mean nothing. Only if you right click, will it open in a new tab, in the naked uploads folders, which is what I don't want.

I do have a Pinterest plugin that appears to be working on all photos, together with the ones where SLB is also working. I also have Wordfence Falcon Engine server side cache, I cleared that, no change. Cleared my browser cache, no change. Tried other browsers, no change. There is a leverage browser cache rule in my .htaccess file, haven't done anything about that yet.

It just works out of the box. Amazing plugin.

Simple, as it should be
By , for WP 4.3.1

Works. No ads, no bloating, nothing. Select a few options, choose a light or a dark theme, and you're good to go.
It even shows image captions and descriptions, believe it or not.
