EWSEL Lightbox For Galleries


Makes the native WordPress galleries use a lightbox script called ColorBox to display the fullsize images right there in the page. No modifications required.

You can also make single non-[gallery] images use the lightbox by giving their links a class of “lightbox”, like so:

<a href="" class="lightbox"><img src="../img.jpg" alt="Demo" /></a>
