This documentation is not using the current rendering mechanism and is probably outdated. The extension maintainer should switch to the new system. Details on how to use the rendering mechanism can be found here.

What does it do?

  • Add the lightbox effect to Content Elements (Image). If Click-enlarge is selected,then will open the images in lightBox.

    Based on lightBox Plugin

  • Multiple Language support for the lightBox. New languages can be added to the locallang.xml file.



Users manual

Import the extension (key: jq_lightbox) from the TYPO3 Online Repository (TER) and install it using the Extension Manager in the Backend of your TYPO3 installation.

Include static (from extensions) : jQuery lightBox (jq_lightbox)


  • Clear FE cache.
  • Now just select Click-enlarge in Elements
  • Enjoy it


You can do this Configurations in Template Constants:

plugin.tx_jqfancybox {

navbarOnTop = 0

overlayOpacity = 0.4

resizeSpeed = 300


  • navbarOnTop: show the Navbar on the Top (default is 0).
  • OverlayOpacity: opacity of the Overlay container.
  • resizeSpeed:The duration of resize effect in the container image box. 300 is default.

TemplaVoilà ( FCE )Configuration

  • If you think that you want the FancyBox effect in the Flexible Content Elements (FCE) too, then it is very easy to include the Ext manually to it. Just make your FCE and make 2 Fields : field_images & field_caption
  • now you have to add some TS to your FCE (field_images):



10 < tt_content.textpic.20

10.stdWrap.dataWrap = |

10 {

imgList.field = field_images

imgPath = uploads/tx_templavoila/

imgObjNum = 1

1 {

file.import.current = 1

file.width.field = imagewidth

stdWrap.typolink.parameter.current = 1 = TSFE:lastImageInfo|origFile

stdWrap.typolink.title.field = field_caption

stdWrap.typolink.title.split.token.char = 10 = register : IMAGE_NUM_CURRENT = register:tx_templavoila_pi1.parentRec.uid

stdWrap.typolink.ATagParams.wrap = rel="lightbox[{field:uid}]" class="lightbox"

# Max Width of Thumbnails.

maxW = 135


10.rendering.dl >

10.rendering.ul >

10.rendering.div >

10.renderMethod = div


that is all.
