Lightbox for the Default Gallery & Image Block (Simple, Lightweight & No Lock In)

Descriere

This WordPress Plugin adds a simple & lightweight Lightbox to the standard WordPress Image Gallery Block. It detects if a post contains a Gallery Block and then loads & initializea baguetteBox.js, a pure JavaScript Lightbox script without any dependencies and a modern minimal look.

There is no lock in effect. It does not add a new Block Editor/Gutenberg Block and relies solo on the standard WordPress Gallery and Image Block. You can deactivate this plugin at any time and your Gallery and Image Blocks will work as they’ve done before. Just without the lightbox.

Just one important thing to remember: You always have to select Link to → Media File for all of your Galleries & Images to work properly. If you choose None or Attachment Page it will not work. But that’s fine if you don’t want the Lightbox for a specific Image or Gallery.

Here are the features of baguetteBox.js:

  • Written in pure JavaScript
  • No dependencies (e.g. jQuery)
  • Image captions support
  • Responsive
  • Supports swipe gestures
  • Around 13 KB, 7 KB gzipped

Works with:

  • Gallery Block (Default Block)
  • Image Block (Default Block)
  • Media and Image Block (Default Block)
  • Gallery (Default Classic Editor Gallery)
  • CoBlocks Gallery Collage / Masonry / Offset / Stacked

Don’t forget to select Link to → Media File for all of your Galleries & Images to work properly.

Întrebări frecvente

When I click on an image, nothing happens

Check if you used the built in Gallery Block and if Link to is set to Media File in the Block sidebar. On an Image Block choose Add Link at the Toolbar.

If you would like to have this as a default behaviour go to yourblog.com/wp-admin/options.php and search for image_default_link_type. Set the value to file and hit save. This will apply to all new Image & Gallery Blocks.

Does it work for single images?

Yes! Just set the Link at the Toolbar to Media File

Can I deactivate the Lightbox for a Gallery?

Set Media File to None or remove the Link.

Installed & activated, it DIDN'T work like magic but it was my own fault because I didn't RTFM. My gallery block was set to "link to: None", but once I set it to "link to: Media" I was all set! Would love some additional customization options in the future (color/opacity of the overlay, for starters), but that's not worth taking any stars off when it does what it says on the box and works with the native blocks. Thanks!

No customization possible but none needed because this works perfectly and the simple aesthetic will fit on any website. There was a small conflict with my theme but I was able to fix it with one line of custom css. Thank you for making this plugin!

Johannes, I wanted to say thank you for this plugin. It's exactly what I was looking for. It's beautiful and simple, you don't need to customize it. We all know how many lightbox plugins now in wordpress, with galleries and other useless stuff. I tired of trying. This is what I was looking for. Again thank you and have good day!

I replaced WP Featherlight with this plugin, as it is written in vanilla JavaScript and doesn't depend on jQuery. I'm using it with Gutenberg and have no problems to report so far!
