  • Report

Modals is a powerful plugin that allows you to easily create cool modal popups on your site.

Modal popup windows are fancy popups also known as Lightboxes.

You can make modals / lightboxes for whatever you want: text, articles, other internal pages, external pages, images, videos, and even full-blown Modal Image Galleries & Slideshows with thumbnail creation.

Modals is packed with options to control the modal popups.
    ★ Full control over styling (via styling options and CSS)
    ★ Define dimensions
    ★ Create image popups quickly and easily
    ★ Make modal image galleries and slideshows automatically Pro only
    ★ Make popups open on pageload, or with a delay Pro only
    ★ Open Menu Items in modals
    ★ And much more...

There are several ways Modals can covert links:
    ★ Via the special Modal tags {modal ...}...{/modal}
    ★ By class names (all links with defined class names)
    ★ All external links
    ★ By target="_blank" (all links with a target. Internal and/or external)
    ★ By filetypes (all links to given filetypes)
    ★ By url matches (also supports regular expressions)

The Modal tags are simple:

{modal link/to/the/page}Click here!{/modal}

Modals also comes with a handy editor button to help you insert the code you need.

Functionality
As they say, the free version has just nearly everything a basic Joomla blog needs to succeed. I liked it as it is
Ease of use
Easy to use. The documentation and the support accompanying the extension make it worthy
Support
Great support! I once asked them to clarify some of the issues I faced during customization. Their assistance was indeed timely.
Documentation
I like how everything is described in detail to guide users on the steps to follow when installing it

Ease of use
Simples
Support
Only ever had to ask once and that turned out to be my fault
I used this to: Quick tips to help others
Functionality
Although quite limited vs. the Pro version, free Modals does the job. Note there's no zoom functionality as you'd get with a new window.
Ease of use
Need alternate to double quotes around URL. Otherwise, quite easy.
Documentation
Extremely good for ALL Regular Labs extensions.
I used this to: My HOA site, which is essentially unfunded.

Yes, not very difficult

Great Joomla Extension

Functionality
It does what it supposed to do with lots of power without any fat.
Ease of use
Almost easy to use. But with Peter support it gets easier.
Support
I some times think Peter from Regular Labs does not sleep. We are in a different time zones. His support is second to none.
Documentation
I used this to: To pop forms, thank you article and many more.
Functionality
This is a great extension I have used on a few projects, both the free and Pro versions. They have worked exactly as described and wanted.
Ease of use
Using the simple example code, I got up and running in no time.
Support
Had a question and got a response in under 2 hours on Saturday Night!
Documentation
Great. Good example code, complete explanation and instructional video too.
I used this to: I created a FAQ using Joomla menus, categories & articles. I wanted to have my FAQs open in modal window based on key words within my Joomla articles. Using ReReplacer to locate and replace the key words with the Modals link to my Joomla articles, I now have the system working!
Functionality
Opens up a modal window... AND makes it easy to add clickable links within the modal (which was a must-have for my site).
Ease of use
Very easy to configure. Also easy to add the triggering code to an article.
Support
Excellent support -- and promptly delivered, too.
Documentation
Fine. Well-organized.
I used this to: On my site, Regular Labs Modal lets the user drill down for more information. It works wonderfully well.

BTW: I went ahead and bought the PRO license. Can't remember the additional features above and beyond the free license, but I wanted to support the developer.
