This extension just works! Integrated seamlessly with my site. I had a query about getting a link working and the reply was really quick with the problem sorted straight away. To be honest the small fee for this extension is definitely worth it just for the support and the peace of mind knowing that it will work and look great at the same time!

Thanks ARI soft

I have been looking for a lightbox that can display anything and at last I found ARI. My first use was for a form to display in a lightbox. The documentation didn't give me the option to click on an image and then have a lightbox open with a form.

After digging around the forum alittle I found the solution but the lightbox didn't close upon submision of the form. I posted a request on the forum and the ARI team soon emailed me the solution for my specific situation.

Well done and thanks for a great extension. It's not free but very worth the small cost.

While looking through the JED for components for a new and easy to use lightbox solution. I came across ARI soft's sexy lightbox. provocative name aside this is a brilliant and extremely versitile component. The only trouble I had was adding the lightbox to one menu item (my knowledge of CSS selectors is pretty limited) I contacted support and the issue was resolved almost imediately! (no joke it took about 5 minutes to be up n running) I am also using their flipbook module which is also brilliant and their software has allowed me to make a fully ios compliant animated website. Great work ARI soft THANKS!

I'm with Yoda below. I just installed the feature rich Sexy Lightbox. Their products are 5 stars/support even more.

Everything worked great, but I struggled to remove the scroll bars from the pop-up lightbox. My template css was conflicting with the lightbox css. I left a forum post on a Saturday, thinking I would get an answer later next week.

Within 24 hours - on a Sunday no less - they answered my post with a simple rule to add to my template css to remove the conflict. Outstanding support.

Thanks for the product/support. Support is very important to me and I'll be looking over your other products because of it.

I have to say I imagined this extension just like any other lightbox out there.
Was surprised to see The Software packed with a lot of settings , configurations that would fit for every need.
But what made me more surprised is the Impressive and oustanding support service the ARI software crew do offer.
Their support e-mails were answered at an amazing speed. Always ready to check for bugs and resolve problems. They even added a few suggestions in a matter of hours.

I have to say with service & support like this, I will definitively recommend ARI Software.

I was constructing my professional site as a Lawyer, and wanted to offer free legal consultation through an image in a module which, when clicked, will activate a flash contact form inside a lightbox. ARISexy Lightbox perfectly fit the bill.

Also, I wanted to have a flash contact form which can be accessed through the dropdown top menu which will also be shown in a lightbox. The ARISexy Links was perfect, although this plugin requires some knowledge about CSS selectors, as indicated in the product page. CSS selectors are beyond me, but no problem, an ARISexy developer assisted me make the whole project up.

Excellent extension and excellent support!

There are so many ways in which you can use this extension. I had some very unique idea how to use it and had to ask developer for some support.

They gave me good instructions but went beyond that even to help me modify my template file to gain some extra feature I wanted ...all very fast, professional and without extra fee.

They sure made me a very happy customer.

I too must say this is a 1st class extension but the support is unbelievable! Almost instant replies, and very detailed.

I had a problem with a conflict between a streaming webcam on my site, and the Lightbox. The developer logged into my Joomla site, and fixed it promptly. Unknown to me he had actually modified the extension in order to do so.

Amazing, wish everything else in life was as good as this !! Buy it now!

This lightbox utility is really very nice. It is easy to use adds "polish" to a website. I'm a website developer, and needed a way create sites I've developed in a thumbnail gallery where clicking-on/displaying a site wouldn't take the view out of my web page. This extension is a great solution because the website displays in a lightbox and the view never leaves the site.

These folks do great work AND have great support. When I found that some of my website where "breaking" out of the light box, I posted the problem in their support forum. ARI responded with good information in just a few hours that helped me solve the problem quickly.

You won't be disappointed with this extension.
