A few days ago I found Osvaldas Valutis’ awesome ImageLightbox.js on WebAppers.com and I just knew I had to have it on my recently “refurnished” little blog. I didn’t really had to make it into a plugin for WordPress, but oh well, I got carried away!
You can get it on the wordpress.org plugin section: wp-imagelightbox
It has no options at the moment, as I didn’t really need any. Will probably be adding them if the plugin proves popular enough to bother.
- No extra images loading from server! Everything is done with CSS animations
- Next/Prev images by clicking the left or right side of the image
- Keyboard navigation (left/right arrow)
- Intuitive! Clicking outside of the image frame closes the lightbox. Also has a big close button in the corner
- Support for left/right swiping navigation on touchscreens
- Responsive! Works perfectly on mobile browers (phones, tablets) without any modification
- LIGHT! 15kb in total!
