Responsive Image Lightbox Gallery Plugin with jQuery - cobox

jQuery cobox is a lightweight jQuery plugin that helps you create responsive popup image galleries with a fullscreen modal overlay effect.


  • Allows you to navigate between images through arrow keys.
  • Image loading indicator.
  • Smoothly adapts to any screen size.
  • Smooth open / close / switch animations.
  • Auto generates image captions from title or data-title attributes.

How to use it:

1. Load jQuery library and the jQuery cobox plugin's stylesheet & JS files in the html page.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/cobox.css">
<script src="//"></script>
<script src="js/cobox.js"></script>

2. Add links to your thumbnails that point to the full size images. The plugin will automatically generate image captions from <a> tag's title or data-title attributes.

<a href="images/1.jpg" title="Photo by Skyler Smith">
  <img src="images/thumb-1.jpg" alt="example-1">

<a href="images/2.jpg" title="Photo by Skyler Smith">
  <img src="images/thumb-2.jpg" alt="example-2">

<a href="images/3.jpg" data-title="Photo by Skyler Smith">
  <img src="images/thumb-3.jpg" alt="example-3">


3. That's it. The plugin will look up all the images on your webpage and display them in a gallery lightbox with next / prev navigation arrows. You can override the default options by editing the cobox.js file.

this.outerBorder = 8;
this.minLeft     = 10;  
this.minTop      = 60; 
this.fadeSpeed   = 300; 
this.speed       = 400; 
this.nextClick   = true; 
this.textShow    = true;
