  • JCE Utilities Mambot 1.1.0


The JCE Utilities Mambot has been updated. The major change was to move from using JQuery to mootools. There are also a few new things added, and it looks and works a little better too (a lot like Lightbox).


The script will automatically convert old JCE and mosCE popups. The page must fully load before any popups become active.

To create a new popup, create a link on an image, using the full sized popup image for the links href attribute. Give the link a class of 'jcebox'. The link's title will be used as the popup image's caption.

To create a 'gallery', give each image link the same rel attribute, eg: rel="gallery".

Can also be usd to create popups to content items. Give the link a class of 'jcebox' and append a width and height value to the end of the content link ie: &bw=400&bh=400

Everything else by me.

This script requires you template to have a valid DTD, and may fail in IE if your template includes an XML declaration. Don't ask me why, something to do with IE and quirksmode.

Here is an example:



Oh, I almost forget. The popups are Draggable too!
