Today we released MetaSlider Lightbox, a new plugin that extends MetaSlider by allowing slides to be opened in a lightbox, which has been a frequently requested feature.


It’s compatible with both MetaSlider and MetaSlider Pro and requires one of the following supported lightbox plugins:

With the plugin activated you’ll see a new checkbox within the ‘Advanced Settings’ panel – ‘Open in lightbox?’ – and when enabled the slides will open up in a lightbox if the user clicks on them. The lightbox settings are controlled via Simple Lightbox so it will keep things consistent across your site.

Future releases will see support for other popular lightbox plugins so if there’s one you would like to use with MetaSlider then let us know!
