Living, Religious events

The liturgical year, also known as the Christian year, consists of the cycle of liturgical seasons in Christian churches which determines when Feasts, Memorials, Commemorations, and Solemnities are to be observed and which portions of Scripture are to be read. The dates of the festivals vary somewhat between the different churches, though the sequence and logic is largely the same.

This module shows major events in the liturgical calendar in chronological order. Individual events can be shown or hidden separately (e.g. show Christmas and hide Ash Wednesday), with optionally displaying the exact date as well as the number of days since or until the event.

I've been using this module for about a year and i love it.

I really like this module. Installed smoothly with nothing unexpected. The module does exactly what it says, and computing the Christian calendar isn't trivial. I'd like to see three minor updates:

(1) The ability to add/change local celebrations

(2) The ability to change the messsage when there's no upcoming even (i.e., "Ordinary time")

(3) The ability to conditionally style the module based on the liturgical calendar event (i.e., shade for the appropriate liturgical color.)

A great module that went into immediate production on my site!

Thank you

Hi, Thanks for the great component. It works well, yes, indeed it is meant for all Christians. :-) I've installed it in our church site ( and it is under Prayer & Liturgy.

Thank you very much for this module, I really liked. Congratulations for your work and be versatile.

It seems to be for Catholics only, not for all Christians. You should've specified this in the description.

Owner's reply: The component aims to be generic. (As a matter of fact, it has first been used on a Protestant church website and hence it is definitely not "for Catholics only".) You can use the back-end to configure whether each individual event the module knows of should be shown or hidden. In addition, version 1.0.3 has events grouped by denominations in the configuration panel, which may help you in selecting the exact events you would like to display on your website. As a result, I believe that the description is not misleading, it is indeed "for all Christians": you can filter out events so as to show any set of events you wish.

sigplus Image Gallery Plus is a straightforward way to add image or photo galleries to a Joomla article with a simple syntax. It takes a matter of minutes to set up a gallery but those who are looking for a powerful gallery solution will not be disappointed either: sigplus is suitable for both beginner and advanced users. Even while simple to use, sigplus offers an impressive set of features. Images suitable for gallery preview are automatically generated with cropping and/or centering, and clicking on a preview image brings up a pop-up window overlay (so-called lightbox) showing the original full-size image without navigating away from the current page. Images in a gallery can be displayed in fixed or flow layout, they can be shown on a slider or carousel/rotator, or an image can blend into another using a fancy transition effect. Appearance and behavior are highly configurable including image margin, border, padding, slider/rotator orientation (horizontal or vertical), animation speed, slideshow delay, image sort order, etc. Despite its versatility, sigplus is completely free. It is a full-fledged product with all features included, there is no need to buy a commercial professional version with extra features or purchase club membership that grants you additional privileges. Translations included: English, Dutch, French, German, Hebrew*, Hungarian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovak and Spanish* (asterisk indicates front-end only). Joomla 1.5 users should install plgsigplus-1.3.x (and optionally modsigplus-1.3.x), users of Joomla 2.5 and later should use the package installer pkg_sigplus-1.4.x (click "Download" for the latest version released in the series to date for maximum compatibility).

showplus is an eye-catching slideshow to display a set of images with user-defined transition between them. It is easy to get started with but offers a number of customization options for more advanced users. showplus is powered by a slideshow script built entirely with the MooTools JavaScript framework that ships with Joomla, and uses no Flash technology. Having a showplus slideshow on a page incurs a footprint of about 30 Kb with only a single CSS file and a JavaScript file included in the page header. No jQuery or other libraries are imported, possibly leading to script conflicts. Features: * choose from six customizable transition types: fade, zoom, pan, Ken Burns effect, push, wipe * attach captions to images with multilingual support using a labels file with fall-back to a default caption * link each image to an arbitrary location * order images according to filename or last modified time, shuffle images each time the page is shown, or specify custom order * display horizontal or vertical navigation bar with small thumbnail images that allow for fast navigation * set most important styles in the administration back-end Required: * Joomla 2.5 or later (including Joomla 3.x) --OR-- * Joomla 1.5.19 or later with MooTools Upgrade system plug-in enabled and PHP 5.2 or later

boxplus is an ultimate lightweight pop-up window implementation (commonly known as lightbox) that can show images, video and other multimedia content including Picasa web albums, YouTube and Vimeo videos, Flash, QuickTime, PDF as well as custom HTML content. boxplus exhibits a high degree of personalization with features like thumbnail bar of images inside the lightbox for fast navigation between items, image captions supporting HTML, auto-fit content and auto-center as well as several themes mimicking various popular lightbox implementations. boxplus for Joomla adds a thin layer around boxplus client-side JavaScript code to expose its functionality in the Joomla framework. Since boxplus is written entirely using the Joomla-native MooTools framework, it incurs virtually no extra overhead and you should not expect script conflicts, which are likely to arise with other plug-ins built on top of different JavaScript libraries. USAGE Organize the content on the page as you normally would but add a "rel" attribute that starts with "boxplus" to any links you would like to bind a boxplus lightbox pop-up window to. When a visitor clicks any of these links, a boxplus window showing the linked content will be displayed let it be an image, a video or other content. Alternatively, use the activation tag syntax, which will automatically convert into a pop-up window activating link with the specified text. REQUIREMENTS Joomla 2.5 or later --OR-- Joomla 1.5.19 or later with MooTools Upgrade system plug-in enabled.

metaudio is a simple way to publish a folder with MP3 and MP4 (MPEG-4) music and audio recordings on a Joomla website. The extension extracts ID3v2 and Apple-style metadata from individual files, creates a listing featuring an audio player and showing the most important metadata (e.g. title, artist, album), and lets visitors view (and authenticated logged-in users edit) all other metadata. Supported metadata include title, artist, album, album artist, grouping, year, track and disk number, composer, comment, genre, tempo, encoder, copyright, JPEG or PNG cover art, description and lyrics. Metadata are cached in the database to improve performance and re-read automatically when files are updated either via the extension interface or the file system. The primary goal of metaudio is to provide a non-commercial Joomla component that offers an intuitive yet versatile user interface to manage metadata of audio recordings. The current version supports viewing as well as editing Apple-style metadata in m4a (MPEG-4 audio) files, and ID3v2.2 (read only), ID3v2.3 (read and write) and (partially) ID3v2.4 metadata in mp3 files but future versions will support additional container formats.
