Works perfectly

By dorothai on July 28, 2023

Did not work when I used it for the first time using Gutenberg blocks. My mistake was I did not place the Gallery into the WP-content block. Fixed it worked like charm.

Installed. Used. Simple!

I installed it, linked a picture and it worked. I could not find an embed of Google Fonts (using Firefox Inspector) so the GDPR-Complaint seems to be outdated.

Fantastic lightbox plugin

By 3cstudio on February 15, 2023

After taking 10 seconds to Install and Activate Simple Lightbox, it was showing the thumbnails' larger image file in another 10 seconds, complete with caption and grayed-out background content in a slick lightbox -- truly "simple".

It is simple. Perfect.

Perfect. I have to write a review because it took so little of my time to get it working. Thank you.

Very nice

Must Be Something I'm Doing Incorrectly

By Andrew Ferguson (ajdferg) on September 29, 2022

I tried to get this to work on a site using the Twenty Twenty-Two theme. Simple gallery containing six images and set to link the images to the media file. Clicking on an image just shows the image, no controls to switch between images.

El mejor plugin que he tenido. Se activa en cada foto cuando tienes activo el enlace al archivo de medios. ¡es genial!

Exactly what I was looking for

By bklassenabb on June 15, 2022

Now I can make images expand when clicked!

Easy & Simple <3

This works well for my purpose, and easy to use. I also like the ongoing communication in the Support section - this is helpful. Thank you Simple Lightbox team <3

Tons of extra scripts

By sergeybhw on May 30, 2022

I wouldn't call this plugin "simple" since it adds 7 extra scripts to the page load. Why you can't optimize it properly so it has one script and one style tag added to the page...
