What is a lightbox in WordPress? Why is everyone suddenly using it? I guess you have not been following the latest trends in web design. WordPress lightbox is a, well, box that shows up on your screen and displays your media files the way you want to while keeping the page behind it in the dark.
Adding a lightbox to your website creates a more elegant and professional look to it. Besides, the pop-up will show your readers the content they clicked on without ever leaving the page.
Other lightbox alternative uses include the displaying a video, a WooCommerce product image, or even the ability to create forms for creating an email list. It also gives you many customization options for your images such as adding captions, descriptions, borders.
Psst! Adding captions and descriptions is a great way to rank up in search engines.
