Introduction

News Display, Articles Display

Make your Joomla 2.5 or 3.x look always fresh to your visitors, because they will not see the "all the time" frontpage anymore.

  • Get this

  • Report

FPR will do the hard work for you; it will select new articles from your own site stock and then place them directly in the front page.

You decide how long the front page articles will remain there before a new rotation is performed.

You are too in control of the categories from where your front page articles will be taken.

If you need some content always shown in the front page, no problem, FPR can handle it.


Great addition!

Value for money

Worth every single penny!


- 5 stars for the soft itself : does perfectly what it is supposed to do

- minus 1 star, because overpriced ($25-30 would be fair)

- minus 1 star for the support : wrote a message on the support forum two weeks ago because the administrator view does not work when demo mode is disabled (works only with demo mode enabled) : no answer


I have just found the extension for my news display. The front page rotator is what i am looking for. GREAT JOB !!!

However, i need to know if it is possible for me to make all the display news with the same height so the display will looks beautiful.


I tried this module sometime (long long ago) on its version for Joomla 1.0, and the improvements are remarkable.



I had no problems to install nor to configure the module. Once it's installed, It works exactly as described.



Nowadays the price has increased significantly, but the module itself, the time it saves me to update my site's frontpage and the equity in my website's content exposure, well worth every single cent.


great module

great module. really good and easy to install. however, is there a way we can limit the articles selected to one per category?



thanks


Way to go


Posted on 05 May 2007

This does exactly what it says it will. The install is easy and configuration is a sinch. Well worth the low, low price.


This component was just what I needed to keep my homepage interesting, and to keep me writing content for my site. I was tired of the "what's new" only-blog type approach and wanted to display some of the older stuff I had written. When combined with ArtioSEF this module helps give my site a fresh feeling.

A little challenging to config - I had to re-enable the login piece and make sure the module was published to the right location. Some documentation would have been helpful, although the developer contacted me right away to help once I complained.

Anyway, I recommend this excellent module!


Nice tool


Posted on 17 February 2007

This is a nice tool. Simple to install.

My comments:



1. Needs a drop down list to pick a position for the fixed content

2. Specifying a Rotate every days to be less than 1 will make the site hang (probably an infinite loop)

3. Would love to have refresh every 1 hour or less than that. This will be useful where large number of documents are published.

Owner's reply: Originally, the module wasn't designed to preform rotations in periods shorter that 1 day. Now that bug is corrected with a parameter validation and a Pro version is released with more advanced features and support for shorter rotation periods. Thank you for the feed back.

Nice and neat

A very nice component with a lot of potential. Nice and neat, does the work right out of the box. With the new features with fixed articles, choice from section and category and the ability to force rotation and restore original frontpage it´s impressive. I had a small problem with SEF Advance that pointed the links for "Force rotate" and "Restore wrong, but it was easily solved by a "work around" Keep up the good work...


Thank you


Posted on 23 December 2006

What I have been looking for, thank you. I have a biography website that wanted to randomly display biography of persons on frontpage this module enables me to do so.



Few suggestions:

Option to display only for a certain section / category

Option to display full article with intro and main text combined without read more…

Option to keep at least one static article always on frontpage e.g. Welcome to website article to be on frontpage always than the rest of articles to be generated randomly.

Owner's reply: Thank YOU for the feedback. Suggestions 1 and 3 are now implemented.

If you ever needed to know the non-SEF URL of your Joomla! pages, then you'll find this extension very helpful and non obstructive. This is because it sets a system message, which can be seen only by the specified users, containing the corresponding non-SEF URL of each page.

JER3 404 Handler, provides an automated way to recover from NOT-SO-TRUE 404 errors and to customize the handle of actual 404s. Keep in mind that Joomla SEF URLs may change, among others, by a modification in the menu structure or by the change in some menu item alias. However the internal URL (non-SEF) remains unchanged. As a prevention step, the plugin stores in a database table, the SEF URL and its associated non-SEF URL of any valid page accessed in your Joomla website. As a first corrective step, if for any reason, the SEF URL gets changed, the former SEF URL will trigger a 404 error. The JER3 404 Handler plugin, will automatically detect 404 errors and will search in its database table if there is an associated non-SEF URL for the one that triggered the 404 error. If so, the plugin will get build the new SEF URL for such resource and smoothly redirects the visitor to the new URL. In case the first step fails, as optional second step the JER3 404 Handler plugin could try to build a keyword list from the requested SEF URL and redirect the visitor to the Joomla search component, looking for any content related to such keywords. Finally, when the two steps above fail, the plugin empowers you to decide how the 404 error should be handled: trigger the default Joomla error page, let the Joomla redirect component to try to solve the error, redirect to the homepage or redirect to elsewhere.

This quite simple plugin throws a PHP exception when an error message is found in the Joomla message queue and the corresponding exception has not been thrown. This is important, because when a Joomla extension sets an error message, usually it stops its execution and generates a semi-empty page that usually Google interprets as a Soft 404, with the inherent SEO penalization. By default, JER3 Exception Thrower, throws an error code 500 because of the unknown nature of the errors. However you can set a list of error messages that should lead to a 404 or 410 error page.
