    Hi,

    Do you recommend any html lightbox plugin for wordpress? I am a performance addicted and prefer to listen your opinion prior to any decision. I’d like to add after content to all single post, a button that when clicked opens a lightbox displaying a general disclaimer.

    Thanks

    Hi there,

    I’ve used this one, but it hasn’t been updated in a bit: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-featherlight/

    On this site, I use this one: https://sorgalla.com/lity/

    It’s not a plugin, but it’s quite easy to set up.

    Both use jQuery which is a shame, but I haven’t found any in vanilla JS.

    Hi Tom,

    Do you think that it is easy to use this one in WordPress?

    As this is not a wordpress plugin, is there any tutorial so we can try using it?

    Thanks

    If it’s not a WordPress plugin then it’s likely not very easy to use in WordPress.

    We wouldn’t have tutorial for another plugin.

    The easiest solution is definitely WP Featherlight as Tom recommended above.

    Hi guys,

    I’ve created a clickable image that opens a video with Featherlight plugin in one of the pages of my website: https://mayangateway.com/guatemala-tours/ – even though it works, there is a white margin when the video is played for which I have contacted the plugin support. Because this plugin has not been updated for a while, I was wondering if it still a good option?

    Additionally, the plugin has a jQuery which gives a couple of performance notices on tests (I’m also a performance addicted), and this is the reason I haven’t displayed my video in homepage which is where I originally want to display it.

    Since this topic was open a year ago, I was wondering if you guys have another recommendation? I am a no coder, so the Lity option would be difficult for me, I think.

    Thank you in advance for your advice!

    Unfortunately we don’t have any other recommendations at this time.

    Worth Googling a bit to see if there are better options available now.

    Thank you for your answer Leo, before I wrote in this ticket, I had looked a lot in Google – but it seems that the WP Featherlight is the most lightweight plugin of this kind which doesn’t affect performance. There are many other plugins but haven’t found any like this one. I’ll continue looking.

    Hi,

    on my search for a lightbox without jquery I came across this plugin:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/kodefix-lightbox-gallery/

    Runs in my test environment without problems, maybe you should try it once.

    Thank you for sharing it Joachim! I already tried it on my testing environment but I couldn’t find a way to add an image that when clicked opens a Lightbox displaying a video. If I find a solution, I will share it with you guys.
