I thought about adding a lightbox-type feature to HTML5Press with CSS3 but ended up settling on Slimbox2 instead. Slimbox2 is a very small clone of the popular Lightbox image overlay effect.

I have implemented slimbox2 for featured images mostly. So, if you click on a featured image when viewing a single post, the large image will show in the slimbox.

It will also work with images embedded directly in your posts. You won’t have to worry about adding rel=”lightbox” to your image links either, as I’ve added some code to take care of that automatically.

I haven’t officially released a new version of HTML5Press that includes this new feature, but if you’re interested you can grab a development version of HTML5Press from Github.

You’ll need to enable the lightbox effect via the HTML5Press Options page in your WordPress Dashboard. The effect is turned off by default.
