This plugin transforms the Gutenberg gallery block into a lightbox with previous/next navigation. It was built to offer those who wish to present a series of images in lightbox/slider format with a simple, lightweight solution.

Installation

  • Install the plugin through the Install Plugins interface or by uploading the ggbl-lightbox folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  • Activate the plugin.
  • Make sure you select “Media File” in the Link To dropdown menu for your galleries

Why did you make this plugin?

I haven’t found a lightbox that is optimized for Gutenberg galleries. Many generate their own gallery formats or contain unneccesary options. I wanted to build one that was as minimal as possible, while offering a functional and elegant experience.
