Yeah, ok, it’s another lightbox gallery plugin! But this one uses Christophe Beyl’s Slimbox – an ultra-lightweight implementation. If size really does matter, this one’s for you.

Display images by category and/or ID; either specified in the plugin options or deferred to one of the custom fields (or the article ID) so you can make article-based galleries. Negation of categories and IDs is supported (i.e. show me all images except the ones in the blah category/section, or all images except image id X).

Display customised caption/alt text with the thumbnails, group the images, add headers, sort them, split them into navigable pages and style it all with copious dollops of CSS. Also now localisable using MLP.

Requires smd_lib

The Magnus:

Thank you, this plugin is great!

Stef, thank you for this plugin! Works a charm, and looks great too!


Fantasic! Thanks!

I have it set up and it’s wonderful, but it lacks image resize. My very wide panoramas can’t take full advantage of user monitor’s width and I don’t want to make them small.. What to do?

Kestas: Image resize is not part of the plugin because it is handled by Christophe Beyl’s Slimbox code instead. The plugin just generates the thumbnails, then hands off displaying the images to his code.

I believe image resizing has been requested in his forum before; I’m not sure if a satisfactory answer has been found yet, sorry. Try there and see how you get on. And if you find an answer, please post it on the smd_slimbox forum thread, thanks!

Excellent plugin




Code not working. :(


Great plugin, thanks!

Thank you Stef!
I’ve just returned back to have a copy of a plug-in, it’s been 3 years since I tested it first time. It worked then, it works now.
