Click the thumbnail below to open the lightbox. This demo includes the optional .lightbox-caption element, which adds an image caption.

	<div class='lightbox-content'>
		<img src="image.png">
		<div class="lightbox-caption"><p>Your caption here</p></div>

All you need to do is add data-toggle="lightbox" and href="#lightbox" or data-target="#lightbox" to a link, and set the href so it references the lightbox you want to display.

<a data-toggle="lightbox" href="#demoLightbox">Open Lightbox</a>
