Works exactly as expected.

I've used the free version on a few projects over the years. It's very easy to use little plugin and I've had great free, friendly forum support.

I wish Inline Content was one of the free features like with Tabs and Sliders.

As soon as I find a project that requires it, I'm definitely going to Go Pro. That Gallery Slideshow is beautiful!

This plugin gives me the flexbility to create the cleanest and best solution for my clients in web design. And you don't need to be an expert in codes or html and css programming to do so. Just read the very well explained examples on the Modals web site or visit the forum for an outstanding courtesy of the designer. Thank you for the amazing product!

As with all of the nonumber extensions I've used, this is simple to use, well documented and well supported by its author.

I had some difficulty getting it to work properly with bootstrap button links, and Peter responded in the support forum almost immediately with the correct syntax to use.

IMHO, You can't go wrong with Nonumber extensions - as the title says, they just work, flawlessly and effortlessly. And if they don't at first, Peter will see that they do.

This plugin was just what I was looking for ...I was in big hurry because owner of the site asked for it. When I installed it, it broke the other component already installed on the site so I asked for help. Help came almost immediately and that's really awesome. No matter how extension is good, without proper support when you need it - that's nothing.
It works perfectly now. Thanks Peter :)

Another great extension by Peter van Westen. This developer deserves major credit. Proof is in the pudding. You won't be disappointed at any turn when it comes to functionality with the latest Joomla versions, Support, Documentation and a very polished and intuitive website browsing experience on the nonumbersnl website.

First off, he clearly labels what's free and what requires a subscription to unlock additional features. There isn't
any deceptive generalization about what does and doesn't work for free versus paid. Integrity speaks volumes in my book.'

Everything is free to try, afaik, and in most cases has all the bells and whistles you would need, for free. To unlock additional features costs next to nothing when you take into account all the time Peter has taken to document everything, with clear live examples and the syntax used to make those examples happen. The way the examples are laid out, versus the syntax used is nicely laid out in a tabular intuitive format. Easily switching back and forth, form example tab to syntax tab makes it a breeze to get any modal up and running just the way you want it.

The Support is top notch. His forum responses speak volumes about his participation and dedication to everyone that uses his extensions, free or paid. Most answers to questions are quickly found by doing a simple search. If not, Peter is very quick to reply. How he does it, I have no idea. I think his mom had quintuplets or something. :P

I personally needed a modal slideshow of photo's to auto-play once a text link was clicked on. I also needed to call several of these modal slideshows within the same article. Between the Modal examples on his website and the plugin parameters being set to near perfect defaults, all I had to do was cut and paste one line of modal code and modify the path to where my cabin images were stored. From start to finish, I had 3 modal slideshows up and running, just like my customer wanted, all within about 10 minutes.

Kudos to you Peter. Awesome job, keep up the great work. Very impressed with the high standards.

After using the free version for a while, I purchased the PRO.
New features provide very insteresting possibilities. Espescially the {modal content=mycontent} is both powerfull and convenient for the clarity of your code.
I must also mention the support who answered my quetion within one hour on Saturday noon.

It all started with "Articles Anywhere" - with a pre-sales query that was answered promptly and comprehensively. I ended up buying the Pro version of "Modals" as well - to show some appreciation/gratitude.

It turns out I needed some help with this as well (user=idiot)!! Again, Peter was quick and helpful. What more could you want?

It's simply a great extension; as all nonumber-tools, easy to use.
I am using nonumbers-modal since a while in the default way.
Today I explored the features which can be used in addition:
unbelivable - had no idea what can be done on modal popups .. ^^
Thx a lot!
