Quick Lightbox effect for any content in Joomla 1.5

20 February 2009 2 Comments


Joomla 1.5′s use of Squeezebox in the backend makes for easy use in the frontend. Thanks to this article at Dvector.com I was able to mash up a lightbox style feedback form for category listing in sobi directory component.

    Thanks for the link of Squeezebox and the link for the article. I am also trying to customize my joomla website.

    Works nicely until I switch on SEO in the Joomla backend. Have not figured out yet what is causing that. Tested:

    – SEO off: lightbox works fine showing either an image or an article
    – SEO on: lightbox works fine showing an image, but not when showing an article

    With SEO on, the article is shown in preview mode as required, but full screen, replacing the site page, instead of in a lightbox.

    In all scenarios, apache mod_rewrite is enabled in the Joomla backend.
