Contao Lightcase

Contao extension to integrate the Lightcase overlay.


Simply activate the j_lightcase template in your page layout under jQuery. Do not activate j_colorbox or moo_mediabox as well!

Lightcase will work with all links that use the data-lightbox="…" parameter. Of course you can still initialize via your own JavaScript. Customizing the options works the same way as with the j_colorbox template for example.

Adjust Labels

In order to adjust the translation of the labels within your application (or to create translations for additional languages), create files in the following format:


For example if you want to change the English and German label of the close button:

# translations/im_contao_lightcase.en.yaml
close: Close overlay
# translations/
close: Overlay schließen

See the API documentation for the available labels.
