Magnific Popup is light and effective
It’s a lightning fast, responsive lightbox with video support.
It covers a wide range of uses and works on all devices.
Magnific Popup is developed by Dmitry Semenov. The attention towards proper UX is unprecedented, you can be sure it is minimal and easy to use for everyone. This solution is for those that don’t need many bells and whistles, but a performance-optimized lightbox that is great on both desktops and mobile devices. It can show all types of content, such as videos and other pages.
Magnific Popup is bundled with modification. It has one minimal style, appealing to those who are looking for a no frame look. It lacks social sharing. On the other hand, it’s a solution that covers all devices because it’s responsive. The video support often makes up for any shortcomings. Its settings for users are exposed in the WordPress Gallery Extra admin area for easy access.
