Include Component Plugin

This plugin is to include a component in an article without an iframe. So the links will work like in an normal page and styling of the site will be used and also the style of the component.

The following features are added, changed or solved in the latest version:
* Option to remove the print parameter in the url
* Adapted plugin for Joomla 2.5 and 3.0
* Remove special javascript content type around scripts to prevent problems with IE
* Support for https

The syntax is {component url='' }
Replace with the url to your component and include index.php?

For example:
{component url='index.php?option=com_component&Itemid=73&parameters....' }

You maybe need to change the url when using an SEF component. If you get a component not found when using SEF url then use the normal url. So not:

You can make a hidden menu item so you can configure components with their menu parameters and copy the generated link to the url parameter of the plugin.
You should add the menu id as a parameter to the url for the plugin, for example:

This is a very nice plugin, and it is very easy to use.

I would give 5 stars, if there would be the possibility to override global component options (eg. "Show Title" for com_content).

The options of the plugin should have been documented a bit more...

One hint: first the plugin did not work for me, until I recognized, that it tried to fetch the content using a http-request my firewall was blocking.

This is an amazing plugin. My lifelong dream has come true - I can now deduce the components anywhere in the site. I had problems with the styles, I wrote to the developer by the name of Mike. It is easy to contact, and on the charge. Now everything is working perfectly. Thanks, Mike, you did a great thing!

This plugin works like charmed!
But you have to be sure your webservarul meets several requirements.
As Mike tells me :
Check if the webserver is configured correctly! Check if the dns is configured and if the webserver may reach the internet and its own webserver. Maybe your hosting provider can help you. ;)

this plugin is amazing, it can wrap all components, and also
it can wrap a standalone script. just give it the URL of the script php file, and it will wrap is and give it the article Css.

I can't believe I didn't know about it until now...

I have a gallery component which I love, and I struggled to get it into my articles.

I downloaded the plugin on 16:12 and it is now 16:14 - as I am writing this review after installing and publishing the component by adding 1 line to my article.

I a amazed.

This is going into my MUST HAVE folder of plugins.

Thank you!!

I initially downloaded this plugin because I wanted to display the registration view of the users component in a module. I thought I would have to hack the plugin to do this (run the replace inside the onAfterRender method on the rendered content)...

But then to my delight and surprise when I was adding a Custom HTML Module for the plugin tag I noticed this wonderful setting: "Prepare Content".

Enabling this setting means that the Custom Html Module content will run thru the onPrepareContent method! To explain this in plain english to you non-programmers out there:

This means that you can output a component in modules as well as articles! Just put the tag in a Custom HTML module and activate the Prepare Content setting in the options tab.

Kudos for this great and useful plugin!

I'm new in joomla, i come from wordpress and i land in joomla because i had to fill a website with content. The way joomla works is quite different than wordpress, so at the beginning i spent lots of hours learning joomla. One of the things that was driving me crazy was how to include a component in an article... i did manually the first time but this was not good because when you upodate something in the component it was not updated in the article.... so i looked for a better solution, and the i found this plugin :)

This extension is very easy to use, and it works perfect. I recommend this extension to everybody!
By the way, i used the extension in a site for coworking project among several schools from Spain. They wanted to to have a list of contact and a list of documents. This is what i used the plugin with... contacts and documents.

Thanks for this extension!

I came across this when I was despairing as I couldn't think how to show the same component twice on the same page - found this link in a very old forum post and wasn't expecting it to work, but it works absolutely perfectly!

Many thanks!

I tried this plugin and firstly I thought there is something wrong (only first embedded component appeared on page). I wrote an e-mail to the developer, he checked my page and sent the solution quickly. It turned out, that the problem was caused by the template css limits.
Great plugin and support!

This plugin allowed me to run two separate components under alternative navigational bars that I have setup, which was not possible before. I've very happy with it. The support that Mike provided was outstanding as well, he was able to guide me through the process even though his plugin was functionally perfect.

I wanted to use the plugin together with the vipportfolio component, but no matter what I did it just showed the syntax line in the frontend. After hours of spending on the internet looking for a solution, I contacted Mike yesterday evening and just received the answer this morning. It turned out that it was a little syntax mistake caused by the CK-Editor, but Mike sent me an updated Version of the plugin and now its working perfectly!!! Outstanding support, very useful plugin

Install it, add syntax, it works. . . mostly.

No doubt, this is a very complicated thing to accomplish, and no doubt, bugs and funny situations will creep up.

I have a few funny things happening, but still am very happy with this. surprised to see it is the only one for 2.5
