The simplelightbox wordpress plugin brings the simplelightbox jquery plugin to wordpress.
You can change every option that the lightbox have in the admin panel under Design -> Simplelightbox.
- Upload the ‘simplelightbox’ folder to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
- Go to Design -> Simplelightbox and set up the lightbox like you want
- Deactivate Simplelightbox in the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
- After Deactivation a ‘Delete’ link appears below the plugin name, follow the link and confim with ‘Yes, Delete these files’.
- This will delete all the plugin files from the server as well as erasing all options the plugin has stored in the database.

I love this plugin as it does its job good and does not have any bloatware in the admin panel. Also when reporting a bug in the forum, the author released a new version with a fix within only two hours. All in all, great plugin, no bloatware, and great support!
