Tag attributes

Available tags attributes are the following:

label (required) = The text of the link to open the form

src = An url for the content to load inside the popup

position = The modules position to load inside the popup

auto = The number of seconds to wait after the page is loaded before opening the form.

title = The title of the form

width = The width of the popup

height = The height of the popup

group = Tags in the same group are displayed in "gallery" mode, this means that you can navigate from one entry to another using the arrows.

Inline HTML

You can define the popup content in the editor by placing it between the opening and closing mediabox tags as follow:

 group="group1" label="Inline HTML!" width="300" height="400" title="test title"
    Open frame

Modules position

To load one or more modules inside a popup, you insert the following tag inside your article:

 position="mediabox" title="Easy connect" label="Loading modules position »" width="300" 
    Open frame

In this example, all modules at position 'mediabox' enabled on the current page would be loaded.

Note: The position name can be change to anything you want. You can use multiple popup with different positions if you want.


You can open swf, fla, mp4 or mp3 as well as most QuickTime formats (.mov, ,m4v, .m4a, and many others).

Set the 'src' attribute to the media file and the embed code is generated automatically. No extra plugin required.


{mediabox group="group1" src="" label="QuickTime movie »" width="600" height="400" title="" /}


{mediabox group="group1" src="" label="Flash animation/game (swf) »" title="Flash animation or game" width="400" height="350" /}

The NonverBlaster player is inluded in the plugin. It is used to read the mp4, mp3 and QuickTime formats.

 label="Google Map »" width="640" height="360" title="" /}
