Lightbox 2 no longer supported.

Hey fellow bloggers,

If you were like me and used Lightbox 2 for your images, you might have noticed that the close option no longer works.  I only heard about this useful plugin because of BigRedKitty.  I have used it on my site for years.  Well I am late to this and this is entirely news to me but the plugin author stopped supporting this plugin over 2 years ago.

I tried a few Lightbox plugins in the past couple of days.  I have finally settled on Responsive Lightbox.  It seems to be the only plugin that works.  It even works very well with mobile devices. You might want to enable “Single Images as gallery.”  It displays images that are a part of a post as a single gallery.

Well good luck if you decided to look around for a similar plugin yourself.  It has been a frustrating couple of days.  I think I finally found the that matches well with the site out of the box.  You don’t have to mess around with changing too many settings and it looks great.

‘Til next time…
