MarkItUp Editor for Joomla is a different kind of editor. Most try to emphasize the WYSIWYG interface (the visual representation of the page) over the code. MarkItUp doesn't try to do that. Instead it tries to make it easier to control your HTML code without fear of extra formatting.

A Basic Editor

Posted on 28 November 2012

I do appreciate how simple this editor is which it did it's job just fine. However from my experience it is not very advanced. I tried pasting in images from other sites which it does not insert. This is more of a blank editor that has buttons that do things (bold, image, ect.)

Certainly not a bad editor, but I was hoping for a bit more. I'm sure some folks will find this extension useful for simplicity.

Owner's reply: Thank you for trying the extension and for sharing your experience with it.
It should be noted for others that this is not a WYSIWYG editor, but rather, an HTML editor for those who like to edit the raw HTML of articles.

For that reason it's not going to have advanced 'editor' features you might find in other WYSIWYG editors which are typically designed for those less experienced and those who need to have HTML prettied up for them.

I've only used this plugin for a short period but have so far found no major issues. A minor annoyance however is the narrow edit window it initially presents, but it can be dragged to resize to whatever size you like. I presume I can set a wider width via skin CSS.

MarkItUp does what it claims and doesn't alter the code; whatever your code looks like when you save it is how it will look when you return to edit. The buttons included with the free version are sufficient for basic edits.

Although few, the buttons included are sure to save HTML coders a lot of time and make this extension well worth installing. Even with my limited use I'm considering upgrading to the Pro version. I'll wait a bit to see how it evolves.

Owner's reply: Thanks for trying the editor and for sharing your feedback!

A Joomla Slideshow Module ShackSlides is not just a slideshow module, but a way to feature your images in style. The most powerful feature of ShackSlides is the ability to utilize content items as the source for your slideshow. Since it is built using an independent javascript slideshow script, it doesn't matter if you are using jQuery, Mootools, any other Javascript framework or no framework at all. This reduces the number of script conflicts and problems you will have with combining too many different extensions. Easy, Reliable, and Optimized for Joomlashack Templates It works on both Joomla 1.5, 2.5 and 3.0, and support K2, FlexiContent, and Joomla content (so long as these extensions work in the Joomla version). You can easily customize the way it appears by using one of the color themes; and, if you wish, you can override the entire way it displays using Joomla's HTML overrides method. Unlike most free slideshow extensions, you get access to our support for 3 months after purchase. That gives you plenty of time to get the support you need should any problems arise. New features will be added over time, so if you have a great idea for the module let us know! We'd like to build a slideshow module that you need rather than build a module that we think you want. Licensing ShackSlides is released under the GNU GPL v3 license--read full license . Your purchase includes access to support and upgrades for 3 months. ShackSlides Key Features: Over 10 effect options! Support for 4 sources: Joomla Content, K2 Items, FlexiContent Items, or a folder 8 color themes Can be overridden with a template override Slides can be linked to content or an images directory Optional descriptions pulled from content Javascript neutral Easy to translate Changelog Version 2.1 - October 2012 - Joomla 3.0 compatibility - Responsive classes (Bootstrap compatbile) added Version 2.0 - Aug 16, 2012 - Included new source: Visionary - Easy configuration and manage slides and collections through Visionary, without needing the images.xml file. Version 1.2 - May 2, 2012 - Full support for Joomla 2.5 - Upgraded sliderman.js to its latest version - Included support for latests versions of K2 and Flexicontent (now supports Joomla!2.5 for these two sources) - New configurable option for positioning the description box outside the image slider itself - New configurable option for transparent background for the description Version 1.1.4 - July 25, 2011 - Updated for 1.7 support - Fixed bug for multiple versions on same page - Bugfixes for display issues at specific configuration settings Version 1.1 - March 2, 2011 - Updated for Joomla 1.6 support - Added new effects selection of 10 base effects - Added new color themes Version 1.0 - December 1, 2010 - Initial release - Supports 4 sources in Joomla 1.5, Folders, Joomla Content, FlexiContent, and K2 items - Javascript neutral slideshow functionality using Sliderman.js

Markitup is a powerful new HTML editor for Joomla that gives you 100% control over your Joomla html code with full HTML5 tag support, multilingual support and handy utilities like the “Lorem Ipsum” generator (adds instant sample content to your articles), dummy image generator (adds sample images to your articles), form wizard, table wizard, advanced color picker tool & more. Up to 112 assignable html editor buttons in all can be dragged & dropped to your Markitup toolbar giving you complete control over your source code like never before. Most Joomla html editors are all WYSIWYG (“what you see is what you get”) and don’t give you any real control over your source code. And worse, those WYSIWYG editors can add unnecessary code to your output, disorganize your existing code, and even can overwrite your class attributes & styles. So much for all that hard work you put in making your site look just ‘right.’ With just a little html knowledge, writing html code is fun and easy with Markitup.

The Visionary Joomla component by Joomlashack is a new way to manage and display image collections as slideshows on your Joomla powered site. A Joomla Image Manager of a Higher Order Visionary allows the convenience of mass uploading of images to be assigned to a 'collection', and that collection can be used as the source for a full page slideshow, or as the source for the bestselling Shackslides module (included with Visionary) to present a slideshow in any module position. Plus each image in a collection can also be edited to include a title and description, allowing easy editing of the slide using the WYSIWYG editor of choice.
