5 of the best lightbox plug-ins for WordPress

When you need a lightbox for your WordPress website, you’ve got options. But first, you need to know what a lightbox is.

A lightbox is a window overlay web feature that covers part of the screen — similar to a popup. The main difference between a popup window and a lightbox is that the lightbox will dim and blur the background so that only the content in the box is clear and visible.

Businesses use lightboxes for a variety of reasons. They can help companies grow their email lists or provide offers to customers. And if you visit the website of an alcohol distributor, a lightbox might first ask you to confirm your age.

Adding a lightbox to your website isn’t a complicated process, and there are many plug-ins you can use to help you do it. Here are the five best lightbox for WordPress plug-ins that you can test out on your website.

1. Jotform

Jotform is a form creation tool that allows you to collect feedback and organize data. With Jotform tools, you can develop a lightbox for your website.
