Nice effects and design. I love the popup possibilities of this extension.
Ease of use
Very easy to use. There are buttons that guide you though everything unlike many other free extensions of this type.
Documentation could be better. The extension is very easy to use, also if you don't use the codes in the documentation.
I used this to: I used this for making YouTube videos popup in a lightboxes. Popup was from images and text and it works great! :)

Valid W3C

Posted on 16 October 2013
Well, a mediabox which generates valid W3C HTML code, with a graphical interface!

Tools worked great until we added the component JGive to our joomla 2.5 installation. We were not able to get JGive properly running and found out after some days that the RokBox was causing this. We worked on it but found the solution in eliminating RokBox.

forum for not club members

Posted on 15 December 2011
The plugin is very nice and non comercial, but I wonder that there is no support like forum for not club members.

For instance, I have problem to use it in Joomla 1,7 with tables. I want to align to wrap in text and always used for that purpose tables. Now Joomla 1,7 don't like tables and table with border="0" show border anyway.

How to configure rokbox without tables I don't find a way.

If you don't activate my review, please answer, because I can't write in Rokbox forum like I am not a member of club.

not working with IE9

Posted on 11 December 2011
I installed this extension and it worked really well and I was very happy with it until I tested in IE9. It simply doesn't display the video files. I finally did manage to get the light box to pop up on IE9 but the files simply don't load. I also tested on the Ipad and Iphone same problem! I tried emailing the developers and has already been 5 days and no reply. It's a real pity because I was very happy until the IE9 and Ipad issues. Is there a solution to this?

Works nicely

Works great, once I'd figured out how to use it!

Great tool

This is probably the best tool to show your media files in a beautiful popup + there is a lot of configuration options .

Broke the Site

Posted on 22 November 2010
Clicking enable produced instant "Restricted Access" on both back and front end.

Had to remove manually from files and database.

Not worth paying for support just to fix and see if we can fix it.

Good but with bugs!

It is a nice looking plugin.

However when i set the with and the height to a percentage, then all my javescript of the admin panel stoppes working. And it costed me many hours to find out that a small setting like that can cause so many problems on your website.

thats why i wouldn't recommend this plugin for the moment.
