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).

Good module

Posted on 30 May 2014

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.

Works for me

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.

didn't get it

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

Owner's reply: 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!

Really, fantastic. This module, not only links to desired webs also it is capable of generate thumbs of the webs. The look is very nice. I had a small problem due I am novice, and joel, inmediately support me helping and writting personally to answer my novice questions. Works perfectly in joomla 1.7.

Amazing Support

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.

Fantastic - love it!

Perfect Tool, the Coder is also accepting feature request and adds them fast to the new release!

Script Function: This extension is a joomla module displaying the words from your Joomla! core articles and displays them in a "cloud" of words displayed in a module. Font-size depends on the frequency of the word throughout your articles. What makes this word cloud module different is that it takes its words directly from your Joomla! core articles instead of your meta tags which means less work to setup. It has been tested with various languages across the world and 3rd-party templates. I wanted a module that doesn't need meta tags to be setup for it. I want a module which quickly installs and can work as is. I've added some CSS styling options because I'm just that lazy. It's free as always, so enjoy! Note: - For Joomla! version 1.5.x websites, please visit my downloads page for compatible versions of this module. - The displayed "joel lipman .com" text can be removed using the module parameters. Admin Parameters include: + Style overrides + Get words from article title or content or both + Get words from displayed article or entire site + Keyword/Category inclusion/exclusion list + Use Joomla Access Levels (public, registered, ...) + Attach word to any search URL + International language support (incl. case-sensitivity) + Integrate: K2, jEvents, HotProperty, PhocaDownload + Debug mode message for the developer Latest ChangeLogs: v3.2.1 (18/03/2014) - Enhancement: Label parameters in XML and language file review [JoomlaGate.com] v3.2 (17/03/2014) - Fixed Bug: Redeclare function issue when used multiple times [MargeE] v3.1 (15/01/2014) - Fixed Bug: German language support. v3 (19/09/2013) - Fixed Bug: Hardcoded DS value for Joomla 3.x compatibility. v1.5.3 (09/04/2011) - Downgrade version of Module v1.6.4 for Joomla 1.5.x websites

This is a module to display a revolver maps 3d globe (from www.revolvermaps.com) displaying a dot (with flag icons and locations) for each current visitor on your website. No registration required at www.revolvermaps.com, just change the parameters in your Joomla admin panel or visit http://revolvermaps.com/?target=setup and copy & paste the generated code they give you in the Joomla admin panel parameter. Important Note: The ID it installs with is for my demo site. If you want to reset the visitor count and associate it with just your site, you'll need to visit www.revolvermaps.com and take your ID from the script code: For example: rm_f1st('0','280','true','false','000000','3sv7MUqXeMI','true','ff0000'); or <param name="i" value="3sv7MUqXeMI" /> The Unique ID code would be "3sv7MUqXeMI" (without the double-quotes) ChangeLog: v1.2 - Checked compatibility: Internet Explorer v6+, Mozilla Firefox v3.5+, Google Chrome v5+ - Trimmed any spaces from posted data and html code. - Used revolvermaps.com selection of "width x height" values. - Added alignment parameter ("float") relative to its container. - Added div and parameter "module class" so that class name actually works... - Added parameter to switch between Java (applet) or Flash (swf) v1.1 - Separated all parameters to be configured in the Joomla admin panel - No need to visit revolvermaps.com to generate code - Language file created (English GB only) v1.0 - Added GNU/GPL License information to xml/php - Removed must agree to license - Moved to section not requiring registration
