Since august 2015 and version 2.11 of Photo-Folders, pictures shown in a thumbnails widget in a blog post can be displayed with a “lightbox” feature when clicking in the thumbnails. It even works on touch based devices, allowing single and multitouch to zoom in the displayed pictures.
The lightbox feature is an option available when using the widget generator. When not activated, a click on the picture directs the user to the Photo-Folders plugin user interface to view the picture. When activated, it opens the picture full screen within the current post. If access to the plugin is not forbidden by the plugin owner, a button is available in the lightbox to open the picture in the plugin. [...]
Here is an overview of the Photo-Folders plugin set of features.
This WordPress plugin was created by Olivier Ezratty, the author of the blog “Opinions Libres”.
This plugin adds a rich pictures management to WordPress users. It gives back pictures management independance to publishers. It fills a gap between picture sharing services (not well connected to blogs), Digital Assets Managers (not connected anymore, no touch support) or most WordPress plugins (usually very limited in scope and with a poor flexibility of pictures integration with posts).
The plugin enables the blog user to navigate through the publisher pictures albums and to embed them in posts through the use of many different publishing widgets. All of this works on touch based devices (tablets and smartphones running iOS and Android) as well as with mouse and keyboard on personal computers.[...]
