Description

requestor - Carol Gould - Center for Global Ethics and Politics

url - https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-featherlight/

"WP Featherlight is a WordPress lightbox plugin for adding a minimal, high-performance, responsive jQuery lightbox to your WordPress website. At its core, WP Featherlight is a WordPress plugin wrapper for the Featherlight jQuery lightbox plugin."

We have numberous lightbox plugins and I asked Carol's developer Fred Meyer if they could use one we have already. He replied: "Unfortunately, we wrote custom lightbox functionality for this site, for the purpose of playing lightboxed video on the homepage on click of a text element. (Click a video title at https://dev.pressupinc.com/cgep/ to see this functionality.) The plugin's related to that."

We have numberous lightbox plugins and I asked Carol's developer Fred Meyer if they could use one we have already.

Could you please be sure that the https://dev.commons.gc.cuny.edu/hosting-partner-handbook/#plugin-and-theme-requests link is passed along to the developer? Specifically, when developing custom functionality for the Commons, the developers should be sure that the tools they're relying on are cleared for use on the Commons.

Given our preponderance of lightbox tools on the Commons, I will add this one, but I will restrict its use to given sites. Could you please ask the reporter for a list of the sites where the plugin should be available?

Thanks - the plugin will only be in use on the CGEP site, cgep.commons.gc.cuny.edu (eventual URL cgep.gc.cuny.edu). Let me know if I need to do more on this ticket.

Best,
Fred
