Add LightBox & Title


This plugin automatically add the rel= »lightbox[POST-ID] » to images linked in a post and in a comment, and recovers the image title.
POST-ID is unique per post so all images per post are grouped in one LightBox set.
Doesn’t add the files required for LightBox, it’s add the « rel lightbox » tag.
You have to insert the required files yourself in your theme, you can use Lightbox 2, Shadowbox.js or an other script, or use a plugin like Shadowbox JS.

  2. Upload it in /wp-content/plugins/ of your WordPress installation
  3. Activate the Plugin
  4. And that’s it!


How disable the automatic addition for an image?

You must add rel= »nolighbox » to the image link.

Which script is better to use?

Can work with any script that uses the tag rel= »lightbox[xy] », we recommend the use of the script Shadowbox.js by insert the script in the theme or via the plugin Shadowbox JS.

Shadowbox.js use the tag rel= »shadowbox[xy] » this plugin works however

Yes, Shadowbox.js normally use the tag rel= »shadowbox[xy] » but works however with the tag rel= »lightbox[xy] »
