LightBox - RokBox2

Written by Super User Posted in Features

RokBox2 is a fully responsive modal plug-in for Joomla and the successor of the very popular but quite dated RokBox1. Rewritten from the ground up it can display many different media formats such as images, videos, music, embedded widgets, Ajax content and Joomla modules and takes advantage of the new technologies such as HTML5 and CSS3.
