lightbox for images

Asked on September 24, 2015 in Feature Requests.


I have a problem with images in layersWP. Even when I install and activate the supported lightbox plugins, nothing happens when clicking on an image.

I read for a forum post that for ‘widgets’, you need to create a child theme etc.

Couldn’t it be made more easy to enable a lightbox functionality ?

Thanks for considering this…

    Hi there,

    Lightbox plugins can only modify how images work in your posts, they cannot change image linking in the Layers widgets, which are designed to link featured images to their respective posts or custom links.  There are Layers Extensions that add lightbox widgets, such as Gallery Mojo, if you are looking for a way to create a portfolio with no page links.  This is a feature we feel is appropriately offered by extensions and to not have any plans currently to add it to the free version of Layers.
