description: 

  A lightbox for images. Simple.

  support: good

  privacy: dunno yet

  CP compat:  maybe not
  CP support: not
  Version recommendation: FREEZE at 2.6(?) 
      v.2.7.0 wasn't working on one of my sites, 
      and his documentation he is committed to latest versions of 
      php and of wordpress. I can't do that.

      Am switching to Lokesh Dhakar's lightbox javascript in theme js

activating outside of wp areas:

  "Links outside of standard content areas can be manually activated 
   with slb_activate().  
   See SLB's Activation documentation for full details, including code examples."

shortcodes:
  See all in update notices at https://archetyped.com/lab/

  [slb_exclude] exclude specific content from SLB.
    (scroll down to header 'EXCLUDE'.)
    This works, and shortcodes within are processed ok.

javascript deferred:

  "the lightbox doesn't work when JS is deferred by WP Rocket. 
   Is there any way around this?"
