Add-On Type(s)



NOTE: This is add-on is no longer being supported and will not be updated for EE3. Fork it if you like.

Fanceebox is a add-on for ExpressionEngine 2.x. It’s main purpose is to allow for style lightbox popups in the control panel. You can then create popups for your custom fields’ labels. This is a nice feature for settings and instructions so your clients have them right where they need them.

If you didn’t know already, fancybox is currently used here, on Devot:ee

Does exactly what it says on the tin! :-)

Must admit that as the link below points to the Fancybox site I downloaded the files from there too thinking that I would have to integrate them somehow to get this to work.

I was wrong and the files are already built in. Excellent little add-on. :-)
