Kept just displaying the shortcode text first off ... but solved that issue by wrapping the output with do_shortode()

Great for video ads

Love this plug-in!
Just gets the job done with no fanfare and no complications whatsoever. We us this on all our web sites and it works like a champ!

Not working for https site

It works like a charm but unfortunately it forces my https youtube link into plain http and ruin the padlock.

Works great

I used the developer's documentation and put the lightbox inside a page template to hold a video. Worked like a charm!

Very nice, but autoplay and "alt" attribute would be nice
By , for WP 4.3.1

This works very nicely, but it means a visitor has to click twice to watch the video (in my case a Vimeo video). It would be better if there was an autoplay option we could use in the shortcode.

My website uses the same lightbox to show images and their "alt" tag value is shown above the lightbox as a title. So would be great if this plugin could also have a "title" attribute.

Great plugin

Great plugin. Keep up the good work.

A regular go-to plugin for me
By , for WP 4.4

Used this now on a number of projects. Love the options in terms of using text or images as the link. Works out of the box and not much fiddling about to get it to look good/match my layouts.

Needs better documentation! How to do simple image link?
