Simple Pop-Up

June 5th, 2013

Simple Pop-UpUse Simple PopUp to show a message, as a image gallery, add any content to it from the Joomla Article editor.
Pop-it up on page load (or not), pop-up only once for each user using cookies, add links through the Article as well. No need for menu items to pop-up the box! (version 1.1 only, see below).

Simple PopUp will let you add a FancyBox Pop-up on any page. The message is written in the Article as “hidden” text.

It will use the styling you give it when creating it in the Article complete with text styling, images, lines and/or tables.

How to use:

1) Install the plugin package.
2) Enable it in the PlugIn Manager!
3) In any article add the popup brackets {simplepopup}

VERSION 2.0:

Tons of new stuff packed into this one!

The most exciting is that I have added support for Youtube videos and put in a lot more flexibility into the settings through a bunch of new parameters.

Here is a list of all the added parameters: name, textalign, width, height, autodimensions, scrolling, cookie, popup, link, url, gallery, cssclass, articleid, title, titleposition, hideonoverlayclick, hideoncontentclick, closebutton, transitionin/transitionout, speedin/speedout, overlayshow, overlayopacity, overlaycolor, video, autoplay

See the users guide for version 2.0 for a more detailed explanation.

VERSION 1.1:

I am quite excited about my new version…

Features:

– Simple PopUp, regular PopUp like the one demo:ed on the previous page.
– Multiple PopUp’s on the same page using links to open them.
– Prevent the PopUp at page load (like on this page), but not on the previous page where the PopUp opens at page load.
– Use external content through URL, e.g. adding http://myserver.com/mypage.html
– Use image in PopUp, also using title (description) for images.
– Use it as a Image Gallery, open the first image and then have “next” and “previous” navigation buttons to change image.
– Cookie support added (2011-07-30)! You can chose to only show the pop-up once to each visitor. See the manual for more information.

Added support for using Joomla Login Form in the PopUp, sample here: http://joomla17.wasen.net/index.php/using-joomla/extensions/modules/user-modules/login
See the manual for details!
