FooBox Update – Lightbox Animations, Integrations, and Bug Fixes

We’ve just pushed an update to FooBox that brings it to v2.3.1.1. It’s now available as an automatic update for current license holders. This update includes some pretty cool new features.

You can read the entire Changelog at the end of this post, but we’ll list some of the most interesting additions first.

Opening and Closing Lightbox Animations

Under the Look & Feel tab, you’ll see a new section named Opening/Closing Animations with these fancy new options.

Lightbox animation effects plugin

You can see examples of all the animations on the FooBox Demo Site, but here’s a quick GIF image to give you an idea.

Bottomless Design Theme Partner

We’ve again partnered with a premier theme developer, Adam Mills of Bottomless Design.

Adam’s themes are tested and proven to be 100% compatible with FooBox and not just that, but they are really clean and beautiful!

Have a look at the Bottomless Design themes right here, or you can always find them listed in the FooBot Says… tab in your FooBox Settings.

Envira Gallery Lite Integration

Along with the existing WordPress Galleries, Jetpack Tiled Gallery, Justified Image Grid, and NextGEN Gallery integrations, we’ve also just added support for the Envira Gallery Lite plugin.

You can see an example of that on the Envira Demo page here.

And lots of tweaks and squashed bugs…
