PhotoSwipe Lightbox for FooGallery Extension


Implements the great “PhotoSwipe“-Lightbox of Dmitry Semenov in FooGallery

This is no stand-alone-plugin – it is an extension for the FooGallery


  • Activating Plugin as FooGallery-Extension.
  • Using this PhotoSwipe-Lightbox in FooGallery


  1. Install the plugin “FooGallery” by following its installation-instructions
  2. Upload this plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/photoswipe-foogallery directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  4. Activate the plugin as FooGallery-Extension in FooGallery –> Extensions –> My Extensions (or something like this — see screenshots, but there it is in german)
  5. Creating a new gallery in FooGallery and set PhotoSwipe as Lightbox – and enjoy!


I installed the plugin but I cannot find it in my gallery

You have to activate the plugin also in FooGallery –> Extensions

There are multiple lightboxes loaded when I click on the thumbnail

Maybe you have also installed another general lightbox-plugin that hooks also on these thumbnails?
