Meow Lightbox has been made for and by photographers. This plugin was just created. We are waiting for the first feedbacks of our users to decide which way to go. We have many ideas for it but we prefer to hear from you first. We will keep it clean, consistent and excellent 🙂
If you want to see how it performs, have a look at one of my post on my website, for example this one: Best Abandoned Places in Japan.
On WordPress: Meow Lightbox
By default, the selector is set on ‘.entry-content’. If your theme doesn’t use it, you need to update the plugin options. The plugin will then look for images surrounded by links and apply the lightbox. When you insert images in your posts, make sure the “Link To” is set to “Media File” or to “Attachment Page”.
