Random Flash Module

This module allows you to randomize a number of flash files. Each time your page is reloaded, a random file will be displayed. The module very easy to setup, simple and self-explanatory. Just install, enter the path to the flash files, and other parameters, and you are up and running. If you enter a single file, it will become a simple flash display module.

There's not many modules for Flash that work well and very few that are Joomla 2.5 compatible without the annoyance of advertisements on the module and a real challenge to remove.

I was very surprised at how simple this module was. You don't need any knowledge of scripting; you simply enter in the folder where your movie(s) located, set the width/height parameters, and that's it!

Well done Dart Creations!

I wanted to use the Sweetykeeper Game on my Joomla 2.5 site, but it hasn't been upgraded since Joomla 1.5 and didn't work. Then I saw this module and thought I'd try it. Works like a charm! I just used the SWF file from the Sweetykeeper install package and that's all it needed.

I can see a lot of potential for this module!! I'm thinking of looking for other free SWF files I could use on my site... there are lots of possibilities for games and fun stuff, besides some really cool design elements.

You can use the module with just ONE swf file (like I did with Sweetykeeper), or you can run a series of them on one page.

Installation was simple. I made an article with a Loadposition on it, then selected that position for the Random Flash Module. It's really nice when something works the first time around!

Took about 5 minutes to install it and have it running!

Just make sure follow the INSTRUCTIONS in the module itself and rename your .swf files as instructed. Too easy!

Thanks for a great module

I still can not fin normal flash module, that I can use for banners on right side. So many flash extensions, so many rotators, galleries and image sliders, but no simple flash module.

This one is the closest I can find, but this one does not work in Firefox. Work in IE and Safari, but no in FIrefox.

I'll have to disagree with your generic statement that it doesn't work on FireFox. I wouldn't release something which does not outright work with a specific browser and many people (check our forums) have got it working fine on all browsers. Something specific in your setup has probably resulted in this not working correctly on your website, but dismissing the module completely as not working with FireFox is taking it a bit too far.

I finally managed to get a Flash Logo to work as I was expecting. I installed this component in no time, made a few changes to the parameters and worked. Kudos to the developers of this cool component. A+ I highly recommended, easy to use and to configure. Great Job !

I'm new to Joomla, having finally decided that I needed to move from HTML to a CMS system. Even being a newbie to Joomla, I had no problems using this extension. I simply followed the instructions and now have 6 photo logo banners appearing randomly on the site I'm setting up. (A special thanks to Dart Creations for their tutorials--I used them to insert a position description in the templatedetails.xml file and code into the index.php and the layout.css files to anchor the flash photo logos where I wanted them.) Great product, thank you. I'm definitely going to be looking at all your products as I've got several other projects after this one.

We all need to thank the author for the module which is very good, easy to configure and saves the otherwise needed effort of editing CSS, HTML, or even any PHP files for flash integrating .

We all need too to offer the author funny beer he talks about as a form of compensation. He really deserves this for his brilliant work.

This was a perfect solution for what I needed, which was to have one source of my own banners on my server and deliver them randomly to a group of sites.

Although the documentation doesn't suggest that this can be done, it works easily enough.

Just put the whole http:// path into the module setup and off you go.

Easy to use module.
The flashmovies can be stored in any map, even a map elsewhere on a other server.
I have use the module on the frontpage of my gamesite The flashmovies are stored on an other server to save bandwidth.

Finally we have this module to show Flash files on the Joomla webpage. I love this one.

But I noticed that this module will resize my flash banner to about 190px wide when the original width was 768.

Maybe it need some reparation.

Anyway, thanks to the author. This is a great one.

baijianpeng: Are you sure that this is because of the module. Could this be an issue with your template?
