A Simple Joomla Module to Display a Fancybox Popup

At itoctopus, we always provide solutions. But the solutions that we are really proud of are the simple solutions, the solutions that don’t involve a lot of work to implement, the solutions that are clear and that actually work!

Today, we are proud to announce that we have created a Joomla 2.5 module that will be used to display a FancyBox iframe on any Joomla page. That iframe can be a page on your Joomla website or it can be an external page.

The reason why we have developed this solution is that we have searched everywhere for a working solution that didn’t conflict with Joomla, but we found none. Nearly every so-called solution didn’t work right out of the box.

So, without further delay, you can download the module from here.

Quick notes:

  • The settings in the module are very obvious and you shouldn’t have a problem making it work. If you do, please contact us. Note that we charge money for our services, even if the module was released for free use.
  • If you set the “Cookie Lifetime (in days)” to 0 then the popup will always appear. Usually this is not the desired behavior, but if you want it, it can be done.

  • We can modify the module for you to work only under certain conditions – for example, if you want it to only work for non-registered users.

  • The module has FancyBox and jquery.cookie.js embedded. No need to download and install them.

  • The module can display pages from your own website, but we suggest you create a completely blank template to assign to those pages before displaying them in a popup. If you don’t have one, then we have one ourselves. You can download it from here.

We hope that our module works for you – if it doesn’t or if you need some alterations, then please contact us. Again, note that our very affordable fees apply.
