Easy to set up; looks great
By , for WP 4.2.4

This is the lightbox that I use, even after trying others. It is just so easy to set up. There are enough options, but not too many, and it just works for so many cases. It also looks nice too!

It is simple and it works!

I've been using this plugin for several years and just realized I hadn't given the developers a shout-out. So here it is.

It worked straight out of the box, I've not encountered any conflicts with other plugins - though if you have Jetpack installed make sure carousel is turned off, or both programs try to display pictures in a Gallery - not the plugin's problem - just something to check.

Great job and it looks good and works well.

Nice && simple

Awesome plugin!

Just what I were looking for! This plugin works great with Beaver Builder, to insert images into accordions or tabs, and open them in a lightbox!

Very useful

It is awesome, you just install it, and the horrible page that appear when a user click over a image o gallery become in a lightbox. One of my must have plugins

Works in Widget area but not on pages or posts
By , for WP 4.2.2

Unfortunately I cant get this plugin to work on images contained in Pages or Posts.

It works perfectly in the widget area.

UPDATE: It seems that Jetpacks 'PHOTON' prevents this plugin from working on pages. Once I disabled the PHOTON feature it works fine.

I have adjusted by stars to suit. :)

Love it - great for custom development

Using it to show a gallery which is inserted via php files of the custom post type in a lightbox. And I don't consider myself a developer - so hats up to the developer of this plugin for making such awesome things possible!

Just like it says--Simple Light Box

After hours of going through other plugins that had all of the bells and whistles, this came to my rescue. Some of them looked great on desktop, and some of them looked great on mobile, but none of them were well designed for both. The desktop display is clean and simple (good!)

The mobile display is where this really shines in comparison to the others. It takes advantage of the full screen width on mobile devices--many of the other plugins insisted on putting a "frame" around the image in mobile (wasting valuable space.) It displays titles and descriptions beautifully as well. Many of the other plugins displayed image titles and descriptions poorly (or not at all.)

It pretty much requires no set up --works right out of the box. And the UI is great, too. Thank you!!

Just perfect !
