This members-only tutorial provides the steps to make each entry output by Easy Posts in Oxygen a link that displays that entry's info in a lightbox when clicked using Lity.

This is a simpler version of the earlier Posts Grid Lightboxes in Oxygen tutorial.

Step 1

Let's add a small snippet of code to define a custom excerpt() function which returns the content trimmed to the specified number of words.

Install and activate Code Snippets plugin.

Go to Snippets > Add New.

Title: Custom Excerpt
