    Only a few HTML tags are allowed to be pasted into HTML widget, but tags like <script> are not

    This is to prevent XSS (Cross Site Scripting) and it's part of security enhancement our devs implemented.

    What you can do is to make an HTML page, embed the lightbox code there and and upload it to your hosting service (or any free hosting)

    No, you can't, the light box code must be embedded into an html page, you must use a free hosting service to embed it.
