Introduction

Multimedia, Multimedia Display

boxplus is an ultimate lightweight pop-up window implementation (commonly known as lightbox) that can show images, video and other multimedia content including Picasa web albums, YouTube and Vimeo videos, Flash, QuickTime, PDF as well as custom HTML content. boxplus exhibits a high degree of personalization with features like thumbnail bar of images inside the lightbox for fast navigation between items, image captions supporting HTML, auto-fit content and auto-center as well as several themes mimicking various popular lightbox implementations.

  • Get this

boxplus for Joomla adds a thin layer around boxplus client-side JavaScript code to expose its functionality in the Joomla framework. Since boxplus is written entirely using the Joomla-native MooTools framework, it incurs virtually no extra overhead and you should not expect script conflicts, which are likely to arise with other plug-ins built on top of different JavaScript libraries.

USAGE

Organize the content on the page as you normally would but add a "rel" attribute that starts with "boxplus" to any links you would like to bind a boxplus lightbox pop-up window to. When a visitor clicks any of these links, a boxplus window showing the linked content will be displayed let it be an image, a video or other content. Alternatively, use the activation tag syntax {boxplus}Link text{/boxplus}, which will automatically convert into a pop-up window activating link with the specified text.

REQUIREMENTS

Joomla 2.5 or later
--OR--
Joomla 1.5.19 or later with MooTools Upgrade system plug-in enabled.


First of all, the simplicity and flexibility of this plugin is outstanding, so I recommend this plugin. But I encounter conflicting problems with other image gallery plugins:



On the same page as my boxplus-plugin, I have an sbox-module, which is a phoca image gallery.



The problem now is, that when clicking on a thumbnail of the phoca module, I get an overlay with the actual size of the image, but TWICE. Because on one way or another, the boxplus plugin is also activated, which doesn't make sense because I only can trigger the boxplus plugin when I add "rel=boxplus" in my HTML code. And of course, phoca doesn't have that trigger in its code...



When I disable the boxplus-plugin, my phoca gallery works fine... But the problem is, that I need the boxplus plugin in my html code :(



I also tried RIE (random image extender) instead of phoca, but encounter the same problem. So there's a conflict in boxplus that I don't know how to solve...

Flexible, powerful, economic light box solution. Fantastic author commitment. Thanks.


Not for Youtube


Posted on 24 July 2013

Just want to let people know this is not a good plugin for Youtube videos. It might work fine for the videos in their demo (quicktime videos), but not Youtube. I'm rating them poorly for not mentioning this important fact about their plugin.


Great plugin. Works perfectly and just what I was looking for. I really like the way the gallery feature was integrated, it's very useful for what I needed.



A future feature suggestion:

It would be nice to have the option in the backend to turn on and off whether visitors can see the next and previous navigation before hovering. I added that manually with css by adding the buttons to the element and using opacity pretty easily, but thought I would offer the suggestion for possible improvements. if you wanted to


Great support

I installed it but had some problems configuring it as it conflicted with another extension. I got great support within a day fixing the problem and even explaining why it happened. Nothing better than great support

Appreciation to author for this free extension.



Straightforward documentation, clean setup.



If you're using the JCH_Optimize plugin, you'll have to exclude either the extension or specific .js files for the lightbox to work.

sigplus Image Gallery Plus is a straightforward way to add image or photo galleries to a Joomla article with a simple syntax. It takes a matter of minutes to set up a gallery but those who are looking for a powerful gallery solution will not be disappointed either: sigplus is suitable for both beginner and advanced users. Even while simple to use, sigplus offers an impressive set of features. Images suitable for gallery preview are automatically generated with cropping and/or centering, and clicking on a preview image brings up a pop-up window overlay (so-called lightbox) showing the original full-size image without navigating away from the current page. Images in a gallery can be displayed in fixed or flow layout, they can be shown on a slider or carousel/rotator, or an image can blend into another using a fancy transition effect. Appearance and behavior are highly configurable including image margin, border, padding, slider/rotator orientation (horizontal or vertical), animation speed, slideshow delay, image sort order, etc. Despite its versatility, sigplus is completely free. It is a full-fledged product with all features included, there is no need to buy a commercial professional version with extra features or purchase club membership that grants you additional privileges. Translations included: English, Dutch, French, German, Hebrew*, Hungarian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovak and Spanish* (asterisk indicates front-end only). Joomla 1.5 users should install plgsigplus-1.3.x (and optionally modsigplus-1.3.x), users of Joomla 2.5 and later should use the package installer pkg_sigplus-1.4.x (click "Download" for the latest version released in the series to date for maximum compatibility).

showplus is an eye-catching slideshow to display a set of images with user-defined transition between them. It is easy to get started with but offers a number of customization options for more advanced users. showplus is powered by a slideshow script built entirely with the MooTools JavaScript framework that ships with Joomla, and uses no Flash technology. Having a showplus slideshow on a page incurs a footprint of about 30 Kb with only a single CSS file and a JavaScript file included in the page header. No jQuery or other libraries are imported, possibly leading to script conflicts. Features: * choose from six customizable transition types: fade, zoom, pan, Ken Burns effect, push, wipe * attach captions to images with multilingual support using a labels file with fall-back to a default caption * link each image to an arbitrary location * order images according to filename or last modified time, shuffle images each time the page is shown, or specify custom order * display horizontal or vertical navigation bar with small thumbnail images that allow for fast navigation * set most important styles in the administration back-end Required: * Joomla 2.5 or later (including Joomla 3.x) --OR-- * Joomla 1.5.19 or later with MooTools Upgrade system plug-in enabled and PHP 5.2 or later

metaudio is a simple way to publish a folder with MP3 and MP4 (MPEG-4) music and audio recordings on a Joomla website. The extension extracts ID3v2 and Apple-style metadata from individual files, creates a listing featuring an audio player and showing the most important metadata (e.g. title, artist, album), and lets visitors view (and authenticated logged-in users edit) all other metadata. Supported metadata include title, artist, album, album artist, grouping, year, track and disk number, composer, comment, genre, tempo, encoder, copyright, JPEG or PNG cover art, description and lyrics. Metadata are cached in the database to improve performance and re-read automatically when files are updated either via the extension interface or the file system. The primary goal of metaudio is to provide a non-commercial Joomla component that offers an intuitive yet versatile user interface to manage metadata of audio recordings. The current version supports viewing as well as editing Apple-style metadata in m4a (MPEG-4 audio) files, and ID3v2.2 (read only), ID3v2.3 (read and write) and (partially) ID3v2.4 metadata in mp3 files but future versions will support additional container formats.

The liturgical year, also known as the Christian year, consists of the cycle of liturgical seasons in Christian churches which determines when Feasts, Memorials, Commemorations, and Solemnities are to be observed and which portions of Scripture are to be read. The dates of the festivals vary somewhat between the different churches, though the sequence and logic is largely the same. This module shows major events in the liturgical calendar in chronological order. Individual events can be shown or hidden separately (e.g. show Christmas and hide Ash Wednesday), with optionally displaying the exact date as well as the number of days since or until the event.
