How to Create Lightbox Effect on WordPress for Free With All Your Media, Video, PDFs and Flash?

Easy Fancybox Plugin Review

In this Free WordPress Training, I am going to show you how to use and utilize a cool fancy lightbox effects, for almost any media.

Here are some of the reasons WHY you should consider this plugin:

  • It is a fancy way of presenting images, movies, portable documents and inline content on your Website or Blog
  • Make Your Website Look More Professional
  • Make Your Site Load Fast, By Showing Small Thumbnails, and Opening Larger Ones. I am sure Google and Your Website visitor will like that, everyone hates slow websites
  • When Writing or Promoting a product, it is not a good idea, to overcrowd the page with extra content, this plugin and its effects, can be a great space saver.
  • Focus on the Core Message, and Let’s the Extra Detail Appear in a Nice Fancy Light box Effect

And now you might be wondering what’s the Fancy Box Plugin?

Basically, it is a fancy way of presenting images, movies, portable documents and inline content on your website. For example, if you have scaled-down images in your posts which are linked to the original large version, instead of opening them on a blanc page, FancyBox opens those in a smooth overlay. Visit FancyBox for more information and examples.

It is all based on the FancyBox jQuery extension and this plugin is WP 3+ Multi-Site compatible.

This Plugin Supports:

  • images (.jpg/.gif/.png and others)and image maps
  • WordPress Galleries
  • PDF and SWF (Flash) files
  • movie sites like YoutubeVimeoandDailmotion
  • hidden inline content
  • iframes
  • popup (auto-activate) on page load

So as you can see this plugin is almost the Swiss Army of LightBox Effect on WordPress, and the best part of it all…..


See the Screenshots below and it will show you how cool it is:
