WP jQuery Lightbox

A drop-in replacement for Lightbox 2 and similar plugins, shedding the bulk of Prototype and Scriptaculous. Improved for mobile devices.

Lightweight, simple to use, good support
By , for WP 4.5.2

Does what it says on the tin - and on both occasions I thought it was broken, developer responded quickly and helpfully and problem turned out to be elsewhere! Would be nice to see it confirmed as 4.5.x compatible, but it seems to work fine :)

Elegant

The WP Gallery LightBox plugin for me!
By , for WP 4.3

I just spent three or 4 hours testing out WP Gallery/*Box plugins. In short, this was the only one I found that worked first time 'out-of-the-box" (on a local, up-to-date [no other plugins] install of Dynamik Website Builder).

My entire wish-list for a *Box plugin were supplied - and worked; Responsive, lightweight, prev/next, WP Gallery compatible, easy-to-use & understandable. Also, the supplied coding documentation was easy to understand, simple to implement and just right for my [limited] coding aptitude.

Uploaded to a Live Site and, it just worked 1st time!! Thanks Ulf.

No worky with 4.2

Installed this plugin and it broke all my jquery. Removed it and then everything started working again. You might want to update this...You know sometime this year.

Komfortable Lightbox
By ,

Plugin gefällt mir gut. Manche Einstellung - insbesondere die unter der Überschrift "How to use:" - ist für Anfänger allerdings noch ein wenig kompliziert.

I like the plugin. Some of the instructions - e. g. these under the headline "Hoe to use:: - seem a little bit too complicatet, especially for beginner.

Thanks for your plugin wp-query-lightbox. I searched this kind of galery since long time and most are 18 or 20$ and i don't have time to make it.

No support
By , for WP 4.0.1

It works, it was one of my favorite plugins. Unfortunately, there is no support for more than a year, now I'm using other lightbox plugin.

Functioned Out of the Box

Works, simple, straightforward. Not like the majority of lightbox plugins out there.
