This is not absolutely mandatory but if you do not like your readers to move away from the original post while clicking on an image, then you can use jQuery Colorbox plugin. For a quick demo, click on the image on right.
Reason, why we recommend this plugin is, it plays nice with our theme and it gives a lot of customization options.
You can customize the plugin by going to Settings jQuery Colorbox.
Below is the list of settings we are using:
- Automate jQuery Colorbox for all images in pages, posts and galleries:
- Automate jQuery Colorbox for all other images:
- Add Slideshow to groups:
- Do not set height/width for any of the options. This makes you images go full-size when clicked.
