WordPress Lightbox plugin allows you to include series of images from any directory with images on your server. This plugin automatically creates thumbnails from your images, as per given parameters. All you need to do is to select a directory with your images. If you install this theme using HotStart method, our Hot Lightbox plugin ($15 value) will be installed as well.

  1. Upload images for Gallery in a folder on your server (using WordPress Media Manager or FTP). Make sure the folder is writable.
  2. Go to Appearance > Widgets and drag Hot Lightbox to the available sidebar position. You will see all the plugin’s parameters there (click on the arrow next to widget’s name).

Hot Lightbox plugin will do the rest for you. What actually it does?

This plugin automatically creates thumbnail images and save them in /thumbs subdirectory of your directory with images. You select the thumbnail images width and height in the plugin properties. Also, you can select quality of the thumbnail images. The plugin will also create a Lightbox slide show. Click on any thumbnail image will open a larger image in the Lightbox pop-up. User can browse images (prev/next) in the pop-up while the rest of the website area will be faded out. Click on any point outside of the Lightbox slide show will bring the website back.

An Example

The row with thumbnail images located above is created by Hot Lightbox. In this example, we used plugin width value of 1000px and height value of 95px. The thumbnail images height is set to 90px, with gray color border of 3px. The thumbnail quality is set to 80. You can change any of these parameters easily!
