for prominent information

Advertising online is no longer a novelty. On the contrary, however and wherever users surf online, pop-ups or banner ads are simply par for the course. This requires very special measures to stand out from the crowd and skillfully position effective advertising or key information, such as special discounts, promotions, or sales.

The new “LightBox” is the perfect thing just for this: Similar to layer ads, the “LightBox” appears above the actual Shopware site or product category and remains in the most prominent position for a specified amount of time, that is, directly in the visitor's field of vision.

Here's how the extension makes "Advertising" easier for online merchants:

If the "LightBox" is installed in the back end, the content and layout of the box can be adapted easily and conveniently there.
Additional settings include:

  • On which product category the lightbox should be displayed (a lightbox can be assigned to several categories and vice versa, several lightboxes can be assigned to one category)
  • when a lightbox appears (from to)
  • for how long the lightbox appears
  • whether there is a minimum time limit for display or whether the user can close the window directly
  • whether there is blocking time, in which the ad will no longer appear per session


  • display time frames can be defined for each "LightBox" 
  • (e.g. daily 10 a.m.–2 p.m., only Thursdays 9 a.m.–6 p.m., on the 1st and 15th of each month 12 a.m.–12 p.m., etc.)
  • Lightboxes can be accessed via a link.
  • Confirmation required – The module is closed and does not appear again in the session only when the customer clicks it.
  • Compatible with "Shopware Responsive Template" and "UNI Responsive Template"
  • Compatible with sub-shops
  • Header field as optional field
  • Default outer distance adaptable to content
