Page Background

HD-Background Selector is a simple module that allows you to apply a different background style to individual pages on your Joomla website. You can select background colours, images or repeated patterns. It can be applied to the main background or to specific elements on your site (eg. module positions, columns, headers, footers, main content box, etc).

You can also use this to apply random backgrounds, multiple overlaid backgrounds or day-specific backgrounds

Joomla's templates generally have the same background style for each and every page. By applying this module to a specific page the background can be styled individually from the others, increasing the variety of your design without resorting to using multiple templates.

It is not difficult for us developers to add in some CSS to customise the background images but when the average user wants to do this themselves you need this module.

It's a great tool, a real time saver but it could be better if it supported the background-size attibute. i.e.

background-size: cover;

The fact that it allows you to add in custom CSS and edit the ID makes up for this.

HD-Date is a simple plugin that inserts the current date into your Joomla website. Just enter {date} at the point where you want the current date to be rendered or {year} for the current year. The plugin works within any content (including articles, modules, components or within any template HTML). Great for automatically updating copyright footer dates. You can also select whether the date/year will be rendered via Javascript or PHP.

Give each page on your Joomla website an individual and unique style with a Custom CSS module. HD-Custom CSS is a simple module that allows you to style pages individually from the rest of the site. Just as the Custom HTML module allows you to insert HTML on a specific page, the Custom CSS module allows you override styles for a specific page. Joomla's template structure assigns the same CSS file(s) to each and every page resulting in a framework of similar looking pages. With a custom CSS module you can broaden the scope of your design by having a different background image on every page, varying the module position sizes, applying different fonts, font colours, hyperlink behaviours, rollover effects or column widths.

HD-Responsive Slides

A jQuery powered responsive image slideshow for Joomla 2.5. This module scales the images to fit the screen and caters for different browsers and mobile devices. It is was built primarily to be used on responsive templates, meaning it can resize the images depending on which screen it is viewed on. It also includes a browser/device sniffer function so you can select which device or browser it should appear on (iphones, Android devices, ipads, etc). More importantly, it's a very easy to use image slideshow. Under the advanced parameters section of the module is a "browser sniffer". This functions allows you to only render the module to the screen if the viewer's browser (or device) matches that specified in your module. This means you can target something to appear on an iPad that won't appear on a desktop.
