Optimizes images on content pages by caching, optimizing, and resizing them. Making images look better, and saves bandwidth!

= Feature Info =

Image support:
This is intended for:
-People who don’t know how to, or want to scale images on pages by hand.
-People that don’t know how to convert from formats like BMP to a compressed format like JPG.

Rather than waste space this plug-in resizes, and optimizes all images!

But you only want to display the image at 480px × 742px. That’s 3mb for each download! And browsers like IE make the images look ugly when scaled! If you are paying for bandwidth, or on a low bandwidth server, this can be a real pain!

Your options?
1) Resize your images before you upload them all. (But others must have to know how to do this, and it takes time, and even more if you have many sizes of the same image.)
2) Use this plug-in, and save yourself time!

Even if you use option 1, you should use this plug-in because it stops mistakes.

After installing plug-in:
/plugins/content/contentoptimizer/DigihavenSaskatoonWebDesign.jpg is 480px × 742px at 51.75 KB:

This is all automatic now! Saving you time and money! This plug-in is a must have! More feature to come in the future! (Read about the alpha version)

I can't create my account to download the extension. I've tried several browsers and it asks for a CAPTCHA that doesn't exists.

UTF-8 problem

Posted on 21 October 2012

I tried your extension it's excellent .

Its only problem it doesn't support french or utf-8 character .

Owner's reply: We and others use our own plugin on a couple of french sites. So we know it works. Your template is incorrectly configured. You must add UTF-8 definitions to the your own template. If your did volatile HTML standards then add xml header with encoding="utf-8" and meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8". This is the proper way HTML and templates work. Templates are a user problem not ours, since you can program your own templates and use other vendors that volatile HTML standards.

Looks good

From what i can see it is a very good plugin but there seems to be issues with instalation and downloads from the developers site.

Looking forward to thoroughly testing it.

This plug in is awesome. before I was using manual sizing process but some images can't be sized, and i need bigger image size in one of the other areas. so this plugin helps dropped my file sizes quite a bit. noticed that if was making my template look bad, but that was error on my part, with CSS.

Very happy with the product

So nice to have such an elegant solution that it basically goes about its work unnoticed. Had a few questions, which Adam answered clearly and timeously. Happy enough to go for the Commercial version.

One must have

Excellent for expert (when on a hurry) aswell for your clients wich shouldn't bother with image size.

I love this for client sites. It seems any time you open up a site to receive content by the end user, it always ends up with those 10 MPiX files being sized to display at 320x240 ;)

So, this plugin is fantastic! Not only does it make my server happy, but it keeps the site looking better, loading faster, and gives us the opportunity to say to the customer "Don't worry about the file size or format: just upload it and let the backend do the rest".

Only thing I'd love to see is support for other images, not just content items. If this plugin could also do the images found in modules and even the site's template images, I'd be even more happy.


works every time with no conflicts like other caching plugins have

You Rocks

This easy to use module allows you to use an Article As A Module, and also support Front-end Editing. All of the other existing modules we have tried for Joomla do not support front-end editing. This module was designed by the web designers at Digihaven Saskatoon Web Design in order to make easy edits for people who are not web designers and like to use front end editing. We hope that other web designers and Joomla users find it useful.
