How to override front-end template or change callable function?

Just use a hook add_filter(‘wpfancybox3_front_template’, your_function_name) in your functions.php file.
Function take as param a template filename that now placed by path /wp-fancybox-3/templates/front.php
Just copy this file in your template and return a new path in your function, for example:

add_filter(‘wpfancybox3_front_template’, ‘replace_wpfancybox3′);
function replace_wpfancybox3($template) {
return get_template_directory().’/my_own_template.php’;

How to override admin template?

Just use a hook add_filter(‘wpfancybox3_admin_template’, your_function_name)
with the same schema as described above.

How to override styles?

Firstly, disable default styles in your functions.php file:
and after that you can use your styles file. If it placed in separated file instead your theme style.css use following code:
wp_enqueue_style(‘jquery-fancybox’, get_template_directory_uri() . ‘/css/my_own_styles.css’);

Just getting started with this plugin. The documentation on the non-CMS related site is great, and transcends to the usage within WP! Can't wait to use the modals and it seems as if there is a special field where additional scripts can be written without being enqued for special scenarios outside the scope of default usage options chosen from the plugins GUI. This developer has worked hard to provide various usage options for images, video, maps, and even AJAX content. Easy to implement and then extend. May need more references to the original site for ease of use. I could have missed this though.

Light, fast, minimal, and great mobile experience. This implementation of FancyBox 3 blows away all of the lightboxes I've paid for on CodeCanyon over the years.

Was trying desperately to make Nextgen Gallery more mobile friendly, and allow full screen images and zooming. This brought in Fancybox3 perfectly and did the trick across the site. Just the right amount of options and config available. Thank you!!
