DEMOS

GALLERY

We believe that choice of the gallery system depends on you. We however recommend you to use the Meow Gallery.

PRO

Getting the Pro version will support us and the development of the plugin, and also add those features:

  • Preloading: the images will load faster (or even instantly) in the Lightbox.
  • Google Maps: if GPS is available in your image, a map will be available.

IMPORTANT

By default, the selector is set for the classes ‘.entry-content, .gallery, .mgl-gallery’. If you need the Lightbox to be active for more selectors, you will need to update the settings. The plugin will apply the lightbox for images contained by the selector. For more information, please check the official page.

Languages: English.

Lightweight and great plugin

This plugin is lightweight, works on mobile devices and shows the EXIF informations of the images when needed. I'm using also the the "Pro" version with some additional nice features and I can really recommend both plugins (free and pro version). The support is also great and very helpful and the plugin is actively developed. Take also a look on the Meow Gallery - more features as with the the default WordPress gallery and works perfectly with this Lightbox...

Excellent Support

I contacted Jordy about an issue and he responded very quickly and was eager to troubleshoot. Once the issue was discovered, he pushed out an update immediately. We all know that issues come up, but what matters to me is how quickly they are resolved. Thanks Jordy!

Lightbox & Gallery

I use Gallery Pro and Lightbox free. This Plugins are great and useful I love it. Your support super-fast and perfect, all my questions were answered quickly. Issues were fixed very quickly. Regards Lenschi

Perfect Lightbox for Photographers

I had been using a variety of different lightboxes over the past decade, some packaged with themes, one with JetPack, etc, and they all had problems. Some were heavy, some were slow, and lots of them were just ugly. The Meow Lightbox is the best one yet. It seems lightweight and fast, it's attractive right out of the box, I love how it displays EXIF data and how it handles vertical and horizontal images so efficiently without wasting screen real estate. More importantly, when I needed a little support to sort out some issues that I had with the lightbox and my theme, I had an excellent experience working with the developers. They were quick to respond and very helpful, and made sure that their plugin was working correctly for me even when it wasn't obvious that the fault was with their plugin. Highly recommended.

Great lightbox, easy to use, light and fast

After trying many different lightboxes, this one is now my favorite, despite a few bugs I had in version 1.5.4... Their support sent me their new stable version (1.5.6) which is about to be released, and it works great now. It is an elegant lighbox where you can customize caption, title, Exif infos, etc. No complex settings, just the ones you need in order to display nicely your pictures. It's fast and light, no overloading. Very nice job, I love it !!!
