As for changing the 'Open Ads', that is quite simple: create a new SWF file and rename the extension to JPG, as explained in the module's Edit area. Or you can rework the existing one, 'clickhere.jpg'...just remember this is actually an SWF file, so you have to rename it 'clickhere.swf' to open in Flash.
First documentation is hard to find. What I found is posted here:
It does take some work to figure out but once this is done, it is pretty neat.
Access to their forum is "view only" unless you join their template club and pay for it. So this limits support somewhat.
It works for me in IE7 and Safari browsers. However in Firefox the page peeler opens behind the right module. I hope I can find a fix for this. Is anyone familar with this Firefox issue?
Besides that, I do as the vids and forums tell me, but I get nothing. The only thing I'm able to get it to do is to show the 500x500 image, but that comes up in the module position for the regular "banner" position. It doesn't show as a flash animation in the upper corner, as it should.
It also seems to completely negate any other banners I use for the "banner" position.
- it doesn't alert popup blocker (JPagePeel does);
- Auto Open feature works (JPagePeel one doesn't).
But there are compatibility issues: as reported in their forum from some users it doesn't show on top on some templates. I get that on Aurora and Ambient (both very famous) and support (fastly) replied they can't help and don't want test (!) so I fear they will not fix that bug in future. Such a shame.
The novelty wore off, so I think I'll unpublish it for now...nice eye candy until you get an eye full of validation errors.
It has, however, come a long way in J1.5 and was a breeze to setup and configure...works "out-of-the-box," so that is probably most important to some.
Why would they do that? Spend tens of hours building it, and walking away unfinished when 2-3 hours of documentation would do it.
I went to the Extenstions page, nothing.
I went to the author's page, it's in German.
I went to the templeplazza page, they NEVER have any docs, and don't this time either.
That's just childishly irresponsible.
Apart from that works a treat!
For me the page would load and when the corner peeled images not always showed up and revealed pieces of the original layout of the site through the actual flash animation. At first I assumed it might just be me, but other people have complained about the same thing when I asked them to check it for me.
Good idea, but has a few bugs.
Two points i have about this module:
A- How can i change the word "open ads" to something more apropriate to my site?
B- I'd love to have the page peeled automatically only once when you reload the website for the first time and not on every page you click on. So far you can set this in the configuration but it still does not work!!??
Thank you for your big efforts.
I am sure this could be much better if this module opened the click url in a new window rather than as a pop up. I have tried to correct this but I am a novice.
