Fullscreen Addon

The Fullscreen Addon for Envira Gallery will allow you to give your users a fullscreen view of your lightbox images automatically or by a click of a button. We’ll walk you through the steps on how to create a fullscreen lightbox view for your gallery images using Envira’s Fullscreen Addon.

Please follow our instructions on how to install and activate addons.

In this instance, you’ll be activating the Envira Fullscreen Addon.

Your first step is to create a new gallery or edit an existing one. You can follow along with our documentation for creating your first gallery.

Navigate to the Lightbox tab and choose the settings that you want for your gallery. You can choose to show the lightbox image fullscreen on open or give the your visitors control by having them click a button.

Enable the Envira Fullscreen Addon for your lightbox images by selecting your settings from the Lightbox tab

Finally, click Publish or Update on your gallery to save the changes.

If you’re using either of the Base lightbox themes, you’ll see the fullscreen icon in the top toolbar.

Any other lightbox themes will need to have the gallery toolbar enabled in order to show a button to open the image fullscreen.
