Worked out of the Box, HOWEVER - did not work with custom template. Review by antonymorrow

Works Great! Review by ABeach
Wow this plugin does exactly what I needed. I wanted something to use on my CMS pages since I have many images. I was able to use the Global JS include and initialization without fail. Great plugin, get this if you need lightbox functionality for your site. (Posted on 3/10/2015)
Great Extension Review by superdak
This is a great extension! Install went good, just need to flush all your caches and logout / login after installation to avoid the page not found error in the configuration. Handles the images way better than the magento default setup. (Posted on 1/2/2015)

More views issue Review by tesqie
I think this is a great extension but needs a more views adjustment option, i spent many hours trying to get more views to be horizontal rather than vertical. Can anyone please show me how this is done???? (Posted on 9/29/2013)
Very Good Review by manuelaviana
I love this plugin, it's just install and everything worked perfectly in my store 7.0 (Posted on 6/6/2013)
Works great Review by abirdd
Great module, love that you can turn off jQuery, so it will work with a theme that already uses it, also does not include it EVERYWHERE, so a theme that just uses jquery on the main page will not break. (Posted on 6/1/2013)
great! Review by caos989
works nice with and also with 1.7.01 (Posted on 5/20/2013)
Very nice lightbox extension. Review by shivamgandhi
I would surely recommend this one because it is easy to install and works great with all it's features.<br />Only reason i'm not giving 5 stars is that there is not any option of changing the size of overlay images in prettybox and no option for changing the position of overlay images. (Posted on 5/13/2013)

Lightbox used to work perfect. Today I was adding some products and found out is not working anymore. Tried to uninstall and re installed and still doesn't work. Any ideas... I think I might have some problems with j-query since I tried to install similar products with no luck.<br />Besides this extension I have installed in the past:<br />advancedcompare from ET,<br />googleplusone.<br />facebook store application.

Great extension Review by martin3
Great extension. Is it possible to open also other images than the product images with one of the viewer, such as images inside a static page? (Posted on 3/7/2012)
Thanks for the brilliant extension Review by bombicri
Thanks for the brilliant extension.<br />I installed it following attentively the installation steps and now is working in all known browsers, even IE8. I did not modified any code.<br />I presume that "extended" mean that Pirobx can be used also in other circumstances than for product images. All my products have a technical sheet (PDF). For the moment, at the end of "description", I added a little icon (adobe icon) linked to the PDF file. Visitors can click on the icon and PDF file open into a new browser window. From there the file can be downloaded like PDF file.<br />Is possible to open the PDF file in a lightbox (Pirobox) similar with the one for product image, to have there scroll-bars (sometimes PDF has much more than one page) and to be possible to download from there the file like PDF file?<br />How to do it?<br />Thanks a lot for this wonderful extension. (Posted on 3/5/2012)

This extension is great Review by trendweb
This extension is great, however even after reading all of the tips on how to get it to work in IE, I still cannot get it to work - with IE, Chrome amp; Safari. The images open up in new tabs instead of generating the lightbox (tried using Fancy, Piro and clone). I copied the files into my theme and changed the JQuery script line in jquery_inclusion.phtml and still not working. I noticed there's mention of "You must use the CDN inclusion option of jQuery" but where is that in the admin? Please help, thanks! Would love to use this extension when I launch my clients' site.

This worked right out of the box. Review by Xonetech
As others have said. This worked right out of the box. I had 1 issue where I needed to logout and log back in for the menus to work right in the administration. However I think this is a pretty common thing since so many things are cached for performance in Magento. Install version 1.6.1 when I emailed for support I got a prompt reply and was resolved in minutes. It's a must have extension. (Posted on 11/10/2011)

Using 1.5.1, works beautiful Review by letcherj001
Using 1.5.1, works beautiful on all non IE browsers. When using IE 9 on the initial page load up it causes the product description tab to jump up on its own about mid page. If I refresh the page or click the tab it refreshes to a good look. It could be my end conflicting but not sure. I never use IE but sadly the boss does. I'd be greatful for any help to get this to work. (Posted on 11/10/2011)

at least partially worked Review by cthornton
Hi<br />I have tried installing this extension and it seems to go smoothly, but there are no MagePsycho options in the Systemgt;Configuration menu. I have tried logging out and back in, and reinstalling the extension. I can see the xml files in app/design/frontend/default/default/layout, so it has at least partially worked. I'm sure I must be missing something really obvious. Any ideas? (Posted on 8/3/2011)
