LightboxMe StackShow any content in a lightbox
The LightboxMe stack is the ideal solution when you want to show one or a few items in a lightbox. The stack is highly customizable, yet easy to work with and uses a very light-weight script that won’t put a big burden on the page load. As the creator of the plugin, Buck Wilson, puts it:
“Have you ever had a DOM element that you wanted lightboxed, but didn't want all the fanciness of all the lightbox-related plug-ins out there? Lightbox_me is for you. […] no muss no fuss.”
DemosExample #1 shows some text with the default settings of the stack.
Example #2: shows some text with a lot of custom settings (see fig. 4).
Actually, this stack can show everything you make with a stack: an image (example #3), a video (example #4), a contact form (example #5), an iframe (example #6),…
Bonus: the LightboxMe Stack is one of the few lightbox stacks that has the option to use a background image as the overlay (example #7).
New in version 1.5.0: instead of an id, you can now also use a data-lbm tag for a link (fig. 2)
If you want the lightbox to open automatically when the page finished loading, or when the visitor scrolls down, you can skip this step.
* for an empty link, set the URL of that link to # (a.k.a. hash or number sign, see fig. 2 and 3).

Sorry for interrupting you again…
…but I really wanted to show you that you can now even make the LightboxMe Stack open a lightbox after scrolling down (500px to be precise in this case) for the first time!
You’re about to enter the LightboxMe Stack product page.
As you can see, with this stack you can even start with an open lightbox.
New in version 1.1.0: you can now set a delay before the lightbox opens automatically!
