Responsive Multi-Purpose jQuery Lightbox Plugin - lightboxSE

lightboxSE is a simple jQuery lightbox plugin for displaying various multimedia content in a responsive popup window.


  • Auto resize for responsive design.
  • Allows to slide through a group of images like a slideshow that we call it 'gallery lightbox'.
  • Supports images, videos, external links, etc.
  • Cool animation while opening or closing the lightbox.
  • Image caption and keyboard navigation supported.
  • Lots of options to customize the lightbox however you like.

How to use it:

1. Load the required CSS file in the head section of the page.

<link href="scripts/lightboxSE.css" rel="stylesheet" />

2. Load the jQuery library and jQuery lightboxSE's javascript at the end of the page to reduce the page load time.

<script src=""></script>
<script src="scripts/lightboxSE.min.js"></script> 

3. Insert a group of images to display them in a slideshow. Pass options to the lightbox by using the data-options attributes, or by passing them in javascript.

<a href="1.jpg" data-lightbox="true" data-slideshow="1" data-caption="caption 1">Image 1</a> 
<a href="2.jpg" data-lightbox="true" data-slideshow="2" data-caption="caption 2">Image 2</a> 
<a href="3.jpg" data-lightbox="true" data-slideshow="3" data-caption="caption 3">Image 3</a> 

4. Initialization on document ready.
