GALLERY

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

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

  • Deep-Linking: allow sharing an URL that will open the Lightbox directly on a specific image.
  • Slideshow: you can start a slideshow from the Lightbox.
  • Social Sharing: share the image on social networks.
  • Animation: the Lightbox can be animated when opening and closing.

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.

There are a lot of lightbox plugins. As a photographer hosting and developing my own site, I've tried many of them. Many of them are good in some ways, but really miss the mark on others. This one brings the right balance of attractive UI and functionality. It's a plugin I enjoy implementing as an admin and also seeing the results as a user.

Finally some plugin (I tried tons) which is working with wordpress default gallery. Works perfectly (using oxygen builder). Highly recommend.

I use it with Meow Gallery and its the perfect fit. I wanted a simple and light weight lightbox. This one is the best match for me (I tested many others).

There is really little to add to the title of this review other than to congratulate the Developer Mr. Jordy Meow. As mentioned in the title of this review, the Meow Lightbox WordPress plugin is really well designed and coded, it also turns out to be very streamlined, lightweight and packed with lots of features and most importantly it works perfectly (mind you, do not confuse the errors that can be caused by an incompatibility with obsolete versions of PHP, because using the updated versions of PHP and supported by this plugin, although I have been using this plugin for a long time, I have not yet encountered any errors in this plugin).Basically, with Meow Lightbox, this simple but very powerful plugin for WordPress, you can have a responsive Lightbox designed specifically for photography that can also display EXIF data also allows you to have a responsive layout which is great on mobile devices, tablets and on larger screens, and still responsive images so the same image resolution will adapt to both screens and mobile devices as well as having the ability to display image / EXIF information such as shutter speed, aperture, camera, lens and much, much more. Oh I forgot… it is virtually completely free but there is also a paid Professional version available (optionally) that adds, for those who need it, support for: Carousel Layout: Display your images in a beautiful carousel (you might know this layout as slider). Map Layout: Instead of a gallery of images, a map will be displayed. The GPS written in your photos will be used. Infinite Loading: If you have huge galleries, with hundreds of thousands of photos, this feature will make it doable and smooth. Animations: Sleek animations. To finish I still give my compliments to the Developer Mr. Jordy Meow and I can only recommend you to try it because it is really an Excellent plugin for WordPress and I am very proud to have completely translated it into Italian! Greetings and have a nice day.
