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

It’s compatible with both Meta Slider and Meta Slider 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 Meta Slider then let us know!
