Introduction

News Display, Articles Display

A plugin to show one article inside another, replaceable text like some instructions or terms can be shown inside any article. Include the code {article=Article ID}

  • Get this

or {article=Article ID,| any field |}

field is optional value of any field from #__content table like title, introtext, fulltext, metakey, metadesc etc.

For example you publish the same text on several pages, and every time when you need to make changes in that text you have to change all the pages with this text. But now you have this Place an Article Plugin, so the advantage of the plugin is

  1. You make changes in one article, and these changes appear automatically in all webpages that refers to that text.

  2. Save time = save money.

Example: {article=453}


This plugin is a great idea. Nevertheless it doesn't work with modules_anywhere.



I'm giving the rating just because it includes a backlink to their website, which is fine, what I don't like is that they don't say that on the plugin description.


One problem


Posted on 17 October 2011

It publish any article including *unpublished*. It would be much better to add a verification for published/unpublished and insert only materials with *published* status. So if an article is no more actual I can unpublish it and now I'm sure that it disappears from all articles wherever it was inserted.


Very handy plugin


Posted on 16 October 2011

I consider this plugin as a must for sites with not trivial content structure. It helps me a lot to keep tidy content consistency as I tend to put articles once written in different context and places. 5 stars also for the nice and friendly support.


This pluging is simply superb.

I would say it is THE EASIEST WAY to embed the contents of one article within another.



Just as the author says, insert the tag {article=article_id} where you need another article inserted and the pluging replaces the tag with the entire content of the that article beautifully rendered with all the CSS and HTML just as it should appear.



I used this plugin in a very handy way to simplify a complex content item page which was constructed in Dreamweaver and cut pasted into Joomla No Editor mode. The page had a lot of layers along with associated javascript behaviours which did the job of hiding and displaying layers when user moused over links on the page. It also included Dreamweaver Spry effects.



The layers contained formatted tables which would require frequent editing. So the tables had to appear in WYSIWYG mode in JCE. But this was not possible since JCE does not correctly render content of complex pages with hidden layers and divs.



So what I did was to pull the tables out of the main layered and scripted page and replace them with appropriate "Place Article" tags. The actual tables were kept as separate content items which could then be easily edited in a WYSIWYG manner without touching the complex scripted page.



What a great help "Place Article" is to handle this hybrid Joomla/Dreamweaver design methodology !



A million thanks to the author.

BRAVO !

The extension for Joomla to show the group of articles in a block mode, this component extracts first image and first few words or first characters (you set the number of words/characters) from the article, to make an eye-catching description with "Read More..." link. There are a lot of settings like number of columns, styles, pagination, vertical and horizontal orientation etc. And even custom layout. So it's very good replacement for the built-in Joomla category/section blog layout. Therefore, if you have only basic knowledge of programing or don't know it at all you can still setup the extension.

A plugin to zoom images on mouse over (hover) event. Having mouse over zoom can be handy tool for both Joomla developers and users, as it will enable you to zoom in to a thumbnail image directly using your mouse. You can select a number of zoom ranges to suit your requirements, and the image will not be opened in a new webpage, which can help to reduce clutter. The applications for this software are many, but as an example, retail sites often employ zoom features to enable consumers to get a better view of products. Needless to say, if you run a retail site using Joomla, this software will add another level of satisfaction, and usability for potential customers, enabling them to view a product in more detail at a glance. This also enhances user experience, by not requiring potential customers to keep opening new browser pages if they want to browse other items. A quick and easy user experience will attract new sales. This is just one example of how useful mouse over zoom can be, and there are of course a number of additional ways that this software can be an effective addition to Joomla sites. It may zoom the same image or zoom and show bigger vesion of the image (for better quality) Also there is a zoom factor - how much to zoom the image x2, x3, x3.5 etc.
