QuickList Weblinks Module

Designed to suit as many joomla sites as possible. NO programming required and as automated a process I could make it. I've made this to get its images automatically using FREE thumbnail services and then it uses local data from there on. The Thumbnail Services, effects and colors are now handled by the Module parameters.

This extension is a module to display a list of your weblinks in a module on your Joomla website. As long as the weblink is published and approved, it will display. The default is to list 2 but you can set as many as you like. It is intended to work out-of-the-box with minimal setup (like the rest of my extensions - lazy Joe).

If you don't have pictures of the websites you link to, this module can generate these (by retrieving from a specified service and using a server-side cURL function - and then stores these to not keep downloading them) or you can create/upload the images yourself using Joomla Media Manager.

I've simplified the process so this version allows any "Administrator" or "Super User" (or Specified Joomla! Group(s)) to generate the thumbnails on-the-fly with just a click of a button. Did I mention this is all OpenSource and FREE?

For further documentation, questions, comments/suggestions, please visit my website and I'll try to reply asap.

IMPORTANT: The FREE services are becoming stricter in their terms of use, please do not abuse their fair usage policies (average 100'000 free prints).

It's a good module, very useful but if you put 10 as number of links, they are shown empty if you don't have exactly those links. It should work as "max number of links to show" I think. For me, thumbs are never created, but I guess that is not module's problem.

I wanted to add some weblinks to a sidebar. This module makes it possible. While I don't use the thumbnails, it's a nice feature.

I spent a lot of time on this but I could not get it to work nicely

So sorry it didn't work for you Alexander. I am currently rewriting this to use the Mootools files included in Joomla 1.6 to be more useful (due to be released as v2.0). The version currently available simply displays images and text in a table format, so I agree not as manageable and flexible as we'd like. Hopefully the next version will be more to your taste!

What a wonderful extension and amazing support. After upgrading to v1.7, I searched and searched for a tool to use for my portfolio. After install, I came across a few issues that were primarily a result of my template and the editor I was using. I emailed the developer and he graciously answered all my questions with an extreme amount of patience. I was so excited to get a resolution and would recommend this fabulous extension to anyone.
