Create Pop-up Windows in Joomla With Shack Toolbox

Create Pop-up Windows in Joomla With Shack Toolbox

Rod Martin and the team at OSTraining were kind enough to create a video showing how to use our Shack Toolbox extension.

Do you need to create a pop-up window in Joomla? This window could show a chat box, a login form, or important information. A pop-up comes in useful any time you need to get your visitors attention.

In this video, Rod shows you how to create a pop-up in Joomla. He uses the example of a customer who wants to show a donation form inside their pop-up window.
