You could try something like this:

Code: Select all

window.addEvent('domready', function(e) {
    SqueezeBox.initialize({});
    SqueezeBox.fromElement($('system-message'), {handler: 'adopt'});
});

try to add this to the head section of your template's index.php file:

Code: Select all

<?php JHTML::_('behavior.modal'); ?>
<script>
window.addEvent('domready', function(e) {
if($('system-message')) {
    SqueezeBox.initialize({});
    SqueezeBox.fromElement($('system-message'), {handler: 'adopt'});
}
});
</script>

Which joomla version do you have, which mootools version? does your template change anything in respect to mootools? Do you have any other javascripts loaded. Did you add it to the correct location?

His tutorial is not for beginners i think :)

Picdome, you need to edit the index.php file inside the the template folder you are using. Look inside:

templates/name_of_your_template/index.php

Edit that file with an HTML or text editor.



STEP ONE: Add the default Joomla system message code, if needed

If this is an existing template you are using, it will probably already have the system message code somewhere where it will display Joomla's system messages:

Code: Select all

<jdoc:include type="message" />

If it's not already there, you usually want to add it right above this code:

Code: Select all

<jdoc:include type="component" />




STEP TWO: Load Mootools which will create the animated pop-up modal message

Right after the opening <head> tag, add this code:

Code: Select all

JHTML::_('behavior.mootools');
JHTML::_('behavior.modal');

NOTE: Is you get a Mootools conflict error, your site is probably already loading Mootools. Try removing the this section of code.



STEP THREE: Add the JavaScript Code to automatically "pop-up" the system message"

Right before the CLOSING </head> tag add this code:

Code: Select all

<script type="text/javascript">
window.addEvent('domready', function(){
 if( $('system-message') ){
 SqueezeBox.initialize();
 SqueezeBox.open( $('system-message'), {
 handler: 'adopt',
 shadow: true,
 overlayOpacity: 0.5,
 size: {x: 600, y: 100},
 onOpen: function(){
 $('system-message').setStyle('visibility', 'visible');
 }
 });
 }
});
</script>

You can adjust the settings in the JavaScript code how you want.

lancert & ooffick Thanks for your help :)


at last it worked and now i found out the real problem actually my template is custom made one so in index.php contains some PHP script which call some other files. normal index.php structures is divided into different files. Whatever now i find out those files and edited it. It starts showing the modal windows thanks.

Hi picdome,

I'm also using a JoomlaXTC template, with the index.php file also calling other php files. What were the files that you edited to achieve the modal windows?
