JCE MediaBox includes 4 themes that emulate popular scripts such as Lightbox, ShadowBox and Squeezebox and can use custom themes too.

JCE MediaBox is installed using the Joomla! Extensions Installer.

Build nice popups and galleryslides.
Ease of use
Easy to use and configure.
As always, awesome.
Clear but it's all pretty self explanatory
I used this to: All my client and my own sites.
More media functionality than you can shake a stick at... or is that click at mouse at?
Ease of use
Once you get around the installation and setting up the options it is a breeze to use. The learning curve might be steep for some newcomers
I used this to: I use JCE Media Box with JCE Editor on every Joomla! website I have designed and published for probably close to the last 10 years. In total I estimate that will be 60+ websites.

This is great

I've used the JCE editor on all my sites since it exists. And sometimes I also used Mediabox. Now I tried many lightbox extensions and come to the conclusion that Mediabox is the best.
JCE and several of its plugins have been a staple in my Joomla! arsenal for years... Mediabox is one of them.

Great extension, active support forum... excellent all around.

Does more than it says :)

I really like the media box in combination with the JCE Editor.

It gives rookies a good chance to create popup thumbnails or even articles within a lightbix!

I'm a total newbie and I installed this and use it along with your other JCE Extensions. Your extensions make it easy for even a guy like me, that doesn't know much -- to do some cool stuff w/ Joomla! Thanks you!
I used to use this plugin on every website I set up... but then I got out of the game for a while and when I got back in I could not remember what it was called. So glad I found it, it's a must for any website. Would give it 6 stars if I could.

Must have

This is one of the extensions I use in every Joomla project.

Must have for me!

The best way to get beautiful image popups, right there within your editor! No extra javascript or plugins, complicated code or whatever. Just upload the image, make it smaller/a thumbnail, select JCE Mediabox, done!

Very easy!
