#232 – Image browser popup height

Status: Closed - Category: Econa

Is it possible to change the height of the image browser popup? The view with fixed height and with only two visible lines is difficult for use.


Yes, it is. The problem is that this is the core modal and it is not responsive. If we increase this too much some users will not able to use it at all.

Making it at 800 pixels seems like the maximum value we can apply.

In order to test this just edit the file plugins/content/econa_article_images/forms/econa.xml and add the attribute height="800" to the media field on line 5.

Please ignore my previous message. It seems that this cannot be changed. The only way to change this is to use a custom modal. This is a restriction of the core Joomla modal.

At the end, things got even worse. Even if we change the modal height or use a different modal it seems that the images list has a hardcoded height of 200 pixels. This means that it's impossible to make the core media manager. The only solution is to build a custom media manager.

I found the solution.
Just put the css file at /administrator/templates/isis/css/custom.css
div.modal {
	height: 80%!important;
.modal-body, .modal-body iframe {
	max-height: none!important;
	height: 100%!important;
.contentpane.component, .container-popup {
	min-height: 100%;
iframe#imageframe {
	height: 60vh!important;
#imageForm .well {
	padding: 5px;
That's a solution that it is working but since it modifies core files it cannot be added in our extension.

Thank you for sharing this just in case someone else needs it.
