Colorbox

Modals utilizes the fabulous modal script Colorbox by Jack Moore. Kudos to him!

Updating from Modalizer to Modals

Modals is a continuation and replacement of Modalizer.
Modals has been totally rewritten. It is more stable than Modalizer and has a lot more and different features and options.

Where Modalizer comes with multiple modal scripts, Modals utilizes only the Colorbox modal script (jQuery based).

Because of all the differences (also in syntax), you cannot simply upgrade from Modalizer to Modals. You cannot use both on one setup.
You will have to uninstall Modalizer before you can install Modals. And you will probably need to change the syntax of your exsisting use of the {modal} tag to make it work. You can use DB Replacer to bulk change stuff in your articles and other content items.
