What is FooBox?

FooBox is a responsive WordPress lightbox plugin. This means that it can open images, videos and html content in a lightbox above the webpage.

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.

Is FooBox easy to use?

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.

My site is mobile-friendly. Will FooBox work on it?

Why do I need a lightbox?
