FooBox adds beautiful and responsive Lightbox capability to your WordPress-powered website.
Images, video, and HTML elements automatically resize correctly on all screen resolutions, and allow for easy forward and backward navigation. Not to mention there is a built-in slideshow with progress bar.

Make your media go viral! Each FooBox has social sharing icons which allows your visitors to easily share them across the social network landscape.
Deeplinking is also baked in, which means each media element can get it’s own unique URL. When that special link is visited, FooBox automatically opens that specific content! Supports Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google and LinkedIn and many more!

Forget the rest! This plugin is the best! Can’t think how else to describe how I feel about the beauty of the FooBox Image Lightbox. The speed at which it renders and transitions images is the fastest lightbox I have ever used.
My needs seemed somewhat basic, or so I thought: a good-looking lightbox that could do next/previous for galleries, handle social media with deeplinking – and of course it had to be responsive. But I kept hitting dead-ends until I found FooBox. I tried the free version and it worked perfectly straight-away, so I didn’t hesitate to go Pro to get the features I needed. I’m a developer so I’m not afraid of a little coding, but the best plugins are the ones that need none. All the options I needed were in an easy setup form. There are lots of appearance options neatly organized, and functionality options for special-case scenarios. One intangible benefit is that it feels lightweight and runs quickly and smoothly. Summing up, it looks and works great!
The FooBox Image Lightbox does a great job presenting your images, and adding social sharing icons. I like the fact that you can disable pages from using the plugin. This is handy on pages which do not have images you want to present like a contact page or 404 page – keeps the loading time for those pages minimal.

FooBox is a responsive WordPress lightbox plugin. This means that it can open images, videos and html content in a lightbox above the webpage. In other words, your visitors don’t leave the page they’re visiting. Instead, a separate box opens above that page to display the image, form or other content.
What can I do with FooBox?
At it’s most basic, FooBox allows you to open images in a lightbox. This opens as a box or window above the page, without navigating away from that page. But FooBox has other uses as well. With FooBox Pro, you can add html to your lightbox. This allows you to open videos, galleries, forms, iFrames, and more, all in FooBox.
Yes. FooBox works out of the box, so there isn’t any setup or configuration required. FooBox PRO does come with additional themes and color options. To make the most of these, you would need to adjust the settings. But we’ve kept them simple and easy to use. For more ways to configure FooBox, you can also have a look at our Documentation.
My site is mobile-friendly. Will FooBox work on it?
Yes; FooBox is a responsive lightbox. In other words, it scales automatically to fit the screen on which it is being viewed. If you’re on a phone or tablet, the image will scale down to fit the screen. This means FooBox is a mobile-friendly lightbox, which is an important consideration for any website.
Why do I need a lightbox?
There are many benefits to using a lightbox plugin. A lightbox allows your users to view a full size image without having to navigate away from the page. At the same time, you don’t have to use up precious page real estate by including the full size image on the page. You can simply use a thumbnail, which opens into the bigger picture. Likewise, using a lightbox for forms, iFrames, videos and other content, ensures your users get the most from your site without having to open new pages or navigate away. Plus, a lightbox is a great way to include slideshows on your site.
How much does FooBox cost?
FooBox is free. It is available for download from WordPress at no cost to you. Simply download, install and start using it. The premium version of FooBox comes in 3 plans, starting at $29,99 a year.
