If you post usually contains images and they are large enough to not fit in your content area, then you might wanna put a lightbox effect to them. But most of us, especially me, hate to manual add lightbox to every single image. Plus, manually adding lightbox to photos would also require us to edit old posts and pages.
Here’s a simple plugin to automatically add lightbox effect to WordPress photos without putting much effort. All you need to do is install and activate it. That’s it!
Simple Lightbox is a very simple and customizable lightbox that is easy to add to your WordPress website.
Simple Lightbox is really easy to use. All we have to do is write links like below in our posts, and it will open those images/content in a lightbox:
<a href="image"><img src="thumbnail" /></a> <a href="image">Image Content</a> <a href="#TB_inline?inlineId=id">Inline Content</a> <a href="url?TB_iframe">iFramed Content</a> <a href="url" class="thickbox">AJAX Content</a>
We use this plugin on this website and it works like a charm! This plugin also has tons of options to customize its look and feel, which you can check at this link.
