Lightbox Content Popup is easy to install and customize; I had an incompatibility issue with my template that I solved after some research, but customization parameters are not enough for my needs.

Thank you very much for your review. You could have raised a support ticket so that we could have solved the issue .

The module may have jQuery conflict issue if the same jQuery library loads in your template. In that case you have to disable the Load jQuery so that it doesn't conflict.

This is great module to use and a great company! When I asked if it could be customized to show a photo gallery of thumbnails that would each pull up a corresponding article the customization was done quickly and a very reasonable cost. Highly recommended!

This extensions does what it says but I need more options to define whether the popup will be displayed, definitely not what I expected.
Owner's reply

Thank you for your review. The extension works "Exactly" what we say and don't have other features that anybody might expect. We would have tried to improve it if you would have clearly mentioned about what you really expected.

Had an initial problem with a JQuery conflict. Posted a support ticket and had a reply within minutes. They made a quick tweak and all was well. Coupled with a module-in-content plugin, I could place the lightbox link in a component. Great!

This is a good module for the $25 cost and the support is excellent. And importantly, it works in a Joomla module position - i.e. not just within content articles.

However, be aware that the module is currently not compatible with K2 because it does not recognise K2 categories.

My Config = Joomla 1.5.24 + K2 2.5

There is however a work-around - if are using K2 this means you have to:
1. Create core Joomla sections and categories - the module only feeds articles from categories ... i.e. you cannot select the articles you want there - well except by unpublishing those you don't
2. Create core Joomla articles with the content you want to display - i.e. not K2 "items"
3. Then these will be published in the module

I have submitted these observations to the support team who told me they will work on a proper fix to this issue.

But I must say the support team were very responsive to my questions on this - so full marks there.

I must also note that something missing from the rather poor documentation provided is the need to - if you want to use the module more than once - after install, go to Extensions/Module Manager and create a copy of the module ... and enable it and then rename it to the specific purpose. That way you have the original module available for another copy and use.

This extension works very well. Most of all, I was impressed with the technical support I received from Infiniways.

Using their tech support chat box, I contacted them minutes after purchasing the extension. I got immediate assistance from the support team, and they actually helped me to set up the extension within my website. I wanted to show the popups upon click within articles and they showed me how to do it.

I was very impressed with their friendly and super fast support!

The module worked perfectly right away, but In needed some customization. They responded to my support ticket immediately and did the customization right away for a great price. I received the new module in my email when I woke up the next day, installed it and it worked perfectly. They even offered to help me install it if I had questions. This is why I love Joomla. Great module and great support.

I simply needed an extension that would open a menu item in a lightbox type popup. It's a little tricky to do that, and I hadn't found one to fit the bill. After a lengthy chat with the tech support I bought and installed it. After my noobish attempts to get the plugin to work, an Infyways tech gladly logged into my installation and worked out what I wanted to do. Great Support!!!
