Flexible Lightbox

WordPress has a simple way to handle images on your blogs: you can upload, organize and insert images on your post with just 2 or 3 clicks. The application also creates thumbnails and medium sizes images automatically and allows you to insert them as a simple gallery into your posts and pages.

Integrate into your front-end nice javascript effects like Thickbox, Lightbox, Slimbox , Milkbox, Lightview is a plus, but would be better if you don’t need to touch the html code for it. That’s why the CMS technology exists.

After developing the plugin Wp ThickBox Integration,  I decided to extend this features to “Lightbox” a cool jquery plugin to overlay images on the current page. In this case you can decide in the  admin “images setting panel” if you want to “Open your images using Lightbox”.

Single Image Example



Installation

1. Upload ‘flexible lightbox’ folder to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory
2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
3. And that’s it.

In this case I’m using the native gallery tag “gallery columns=3” with the default styles.

(The plugin needs to be updated to the last 3.5 version of WordPress)

  1. Greetings, I do believe your web site could be having internet browser compatibility problems.
    When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some
    overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Aside from that, fantastic website!

  2. Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired
    of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking
    at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  3. This plugin does not appear on the WordPress.org site any more, so I assume it is unsupported. There are plenty of others that are supported, and, yes, it prevents the “insert into post” working.

  4. Please HELP! I have the same PROBLEM!
    The plugin is not working properly with the new media uploader of WordPress 3.5. If the plugin is active I am unable to insert media into a post. grrrrr…

  5. The plugin is conflicting with the new media uploader in WordPress 3.5. If the plugin is active I am unable to insert media into a post. I can upload the media fine it just won’t insert the html into the post.
    An upgrade would be appreciated.

    1. Same here–I have not found a suitable replacement for this great plugin–would love a fix that doesn’t prevent me from being able to insert photos into my posts!
