We have incorporated the Colorbox lightbox feature for viewing images from the WordPress Gallery Shortcode (even the block gallery). You can now view your photos in a popup overlay viewer.

NOTE: We are planning to remove the lightbox in the next update because it does not work with actual image captions correctly (not compatible). We will be offering an alternative.

UPDATE: For the new version, we recommend trying out the WP Featherlight lightbox plugin.

If You are Still Using the Theme’s Lightbox

  1. Go to Appearance > Customize > Other Options
  2. Look for the Enable Gallery Lightbox setting and check the box.
  3. Click the Publish button

Using the WP Featherlight Plugin

  • Go to Plugins > Add New
  • In the search, type in WP Featherlight, and then once you see the WP Featherlight – A Simple jQuery Lightbox plugin show, click Install Now and then activate it.
