Contao Magnific Popup

Contao extension to integrate the Magnific Popup overlay.


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

The Magnific Popup will work with all links that use the data-lightbox="..." parameter. Of course you can still initialize and manipulate the Magnific Popup via your own JavaScript.


If you want to use your own custom parameters, simply create your own j_magnific_popup template and insert your custom options there. For example, if you want to enable the zoom feature of Magnific Popup:

    // put your custom configuration here
    zoom: { enabled: true }

Refer to the Magnific Popup Documentation for all available parameters.


By default, the extension defines the type for all Magnific Popup instances as image. You can set any of the types supported by Magnific Popup through several ways:

  • through the data-lightbox parameter itself, e.g.

    <a href="page.html" data-lightbox="iframe">Page</a>

    You can still also define a custom grouping name anywhere in the parameter:

    <a href="page.html" data-lightbox="iframe group1">Page</a>
  • by using your own Magnific Popup initialisation

  • by setting the type globally through the options in your own j_magnific_popup template

Additional Parameters

To support some compatibility with the old lightbox parameters of Contao, you can also define the width and height of the iframe popup like so:

<a href="page.html" data-lightbox="iframe 800 600">Page</a>
