Shack Toolbox is the best Joomla extension to display content in a popup. In the previous post, you learned 5 ways to set a Shack Toolbox popup before it opens.
But with Shack Toolbox you also have control over how your popup opens. In this blog post, I will show you 9 ways to open your Joomla popup with Shack Toolbox.
To control how Shack Toolbox will open your Joomla popup, you go to the "Location & Effects" tab > "After opening":
Once you click "After opening", you will be able to select with what effect your Joomla popup will open. Let's take a look at them one by one.

With this option, you will have 32 transition effects for your sliding popup:

With this setting, your Joomla popup will fly out as a lightbox to the middle of its page with fading effect:
