good work. very nice :)

Thank you sir :)

Nice. Looking for a live preview? Can the modal be full screen?

Thanks, i hope you enjoy customizing your Lightbox. in next updates i will add more interesting features. I don’t check for Visual Composer, but i think it work because LightBox display all shortcodes. Please If you like it don’t forget to rate it.


Just for Remind, the LightPost now can display Visual Composer content, I invite you to make an update.

That’s Awesome! thank you!

Its amazing… Some questions here:

1. The last tool like this was “WP Post Preview” here on codecanyon. it was cool but just supported for a few months. Will you constantly update it?

2. What about these features: - Enable/disable featured image/article image - Enable/disable comments, social sharing, author box (or inherited from theme??) - shortcode stripping on/off? - what color options are available? examples: border, background, shadow, font, close button, etc.

3. Il will buy around 20th november i think :)

A dashboard demo is available here: Demo

Is your plugin comaptible with ajax search pro (from wpdreams, link: https://codecanyon.net/item/ajax-search-pro-for-wordpress-live-search-plugin/3357410)

I mean.. I would love to click on the search result and show the popup with post content

I think yes, Please send us your request to support@webmatiq.com They will answer you as soon as possible

How does this lightbox affect SEO or Google Analytics if post is opened in lightbox?

This is the main features i’m working on know it will be in next updates. for that version, lightbox it’s not indexed but the page of post is. about Analytics this can be configure event tracking or virtual page views within Google Analytics.

Excellent Work! :-)

Thanks you very much Friend :grin:

so how it works? can i make image in post and link it to open in lightpost site post from blog?

Hello @Gantonr,

You can add shortcode and make any content show LightPost, but it can display just: Featured Image, Content of post(text & image), Title, Author name & avatar, Publish Date.

great, so how did it works on example? i have image: sample.jpg and post with ID – 3 and want to show image on homepage or some other page and when it clicked it opens content of post ID3 with title and content of it. what would be shortcode? i want to test it on you demo, what is great by the way. Cheers

You can add html code like:

<a class="lightpost" data-id="3">Show post</a>

Hi Webmatiq!

Nice plugin!

Question about the demo: The written content of the posts shown on the post page is the same written content inside the lightbox.

Is it possible to display the written content of the post only in the lightbox? And the link to the lightbox be a featured image for example?

Hope to hear from you! Thanks!

Kind regards
