Introduction

Use Simple PopUp to show a message, as a image gallery, add any content to it from the Joomla Article editor.
Pop-it up on page load (or not), pop-up only once for each user using cookies, add links through the Article as well. No need for menu items to pop-up the box! (version 1.1 only, see below).

  • Get this

PopUp anything on your site!

PDF's, Youtube, image gallery, articles and more...

Simple PopUp will let you add a FancyBox Pop-up on any page. The message is written in the Article as "hidden" text or you can type it in to a Custom HTML Module and set the module option to "Prepare content" (see demo here: http://wasen.net/index.php/login). In both cases you just add the popup brackets {simplepopup} around the text/images.

It will use the styling you give it when creating it in the Article complete with text styling, images, lines and/or tables regardless if you use the Custom HTML module or inside an article.

How to use:

1) Install the plugin package.
2) Enable it in the PlugIn Manager!
3) In any article add the popup brackets {simplepopup}

NEWS: Version 2.1 released! 2015-07-02
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

All the features from 2.0 (of course) and a few bug fixes and the following new features:

  • Open after a delay. Simply add "delayopen=3000" to wait 3 seconds (in milliseconds) to open the popup.

  • Auto-close after a delay. Add "delayclose=10000" for closing the popup box after 10 seconds automatically.

  • Open i iFrame. You can now load any external content into an iFrame. The property "boxstyle" can now be set to "iframe" and then you give the URL in the "url" property, e.g.:

{ simplepopup name="popJPG" boxstyle="iframe" url="images/headers/blue-flower.jpg" popup="false" }hidden{ /simplepopup }

  • Open PDF in PDF Viewer (pdfjs). Set "boxstyle=pdf" and a URL to point to the PDF file to open it in a viewer:

{ simplepopup name="popPDF" boxstyle="iframe" url="http://wasen.net/downloads/Simple_PopUp.pdf" popup="false" autodimensions="true" }hidden{ /simplepopup }

For iFrame you can also specify the mime type to make sure the browser behaves as expected, e.g. mime="application/pdf"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
VERSION 2.0:

Tons of new stuff packed into this one!

The most exciting is that I have added support for Youtube videos and put in a lot more flexibility into the settings through a bunch of new parameters.

Here is a list of all the added parameters: name, textalign, width, height, autodimensions, scrolling, cookie, popup, link, url, gallery, cssclass, articleid, title, titleposition, hideonoverlayclick, hideoncontentclick, closebutton, transitionin/transitionout, speedin/speedout, overlayshow, overlayopacity, overlaycolor, video, autoplay

See the users guide for version 2.0 for a more detailed explanation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
VERSION 1.1:

I am quite excited about my new version...

Features:

- Simple PopUp, regular PopUp like the one demo:ed on the previous page.
- Multiple PopUp's on the same page using links to open them.
- Prevent the PopUp at page load (like on this page), but not on the previous page where the PopUp opens at page load.
- Use external content through URL, e.g. adding http://myserver.com/mypage.html
- Use image in PopUp, also using title (description) for images.
- Use it as a Image Gallery, open the first image and then have "next" and "previous" navigation buttons to change image.
- Cookie support added (2011-07-30)! You can chose to only show the pop-up once to each visitor. See the manual for more information.
  (For the cookie to trigger you will need to add a name and a cookie persistence, e.g. for 10 days: {simplepopup name=myCookiePop cookie=10}

If you use Simple PopUp, please post a rating and a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Take care!

Functionality

Exactly what I needed. A nice plugin to show my pdf's in a popup. Very simple to use and now with embedded pdf functionality.

Ease of use

Very easy. Just install, set some settings and place the tags inside your text.

Support

Great support. I needed some functionality not present yet and upon request it was added and more.

Documentation

Enough documentation to get you going. When needed developer answers questions

I used this to: let users see some pdf's without being able to directly save./download them. Of course there still are ways, but for the majority of the users it will do.

Simple but buggy


Posted on 15 April 2015
Functionality

Popup only shows once with the desired text, after that the entire page is shown in the popup. Even with the provided examples

Ease of use

The ease of use makes this an ideal plugin if you want to display content in a lightbox. Simple tag-style plugin you can embed anywhere

Documentation

Basic but sufficient

I used this to: Intended to enable users to view charts larger without redirecting to another page
Owner's reply: That is a FancyBox bug which there is a setting in the backend to fix. Look under Advanced and set "FancyBox fix Joomla 3 (jQuery 1.10.2)" and it will work fine.

Functionality

Would be great if this would work with the default custom html module.

Ease of use

I emailed dev about custom html module - his reply: I can't tell you if it works for you or not, sorry.

Support

Poor

Documentation

poor

I used this to: Not using it anymore. I asked the dev if it works with protostar template and his reply was "Sorry, no, I am not familiar with that... "

No thanks...moving on to other modules with developers who care.
Owner's reply: And I just tried using it in a module myself... It works fine. Head over here for instructions and demo:
http://wasen.net/index.php/contact

Contact me (using the form) if you can't get it working!

Anders

Unfortunately I have the same problems that I read. The plug in doesn't work with an external link and nobody answered from support. I could even register to the forum because it didn't work too.

Owner's reply: Please make sure to check your spam-filter in your e-mail as the registration e-mail might have gotten stuck there.
I have had several users registering to the forum these last days and I also tested myself a few minutes ago...

Normally when external links don't work it is because your PHP and/or server settings prevent the loading of external content into a webpage. You need to allow the PHP setting "allow_url_fopen".
Also make sure the URL is complete with "http://" and is valid (of course).

Please don't hesitate to contact me at "Contact" at wasen.net for further assitance!

This is an AWESOME extension. It does everything it says it does, and MORE!! And, with very thorough documentation, it was easy to figure out how to take full advantage of its potential... even the advanced features were clearly and concisely explained. This has added a whole new level of functionality and flair to my website, and I am so grateful to the developer!!


Nice little plugin


Posted on 11 February 2014

I downloaded the free version of this and tried it out on one of my sites. It works really nicely; no time at all to set up or use. I had a couple of questions in the beginning and Anders responded immediately. Since it was only a few bucks, I purchased the pro version to remove the freeware notice on the bottom, although the notice is quite unobstrusive and I didn't even see it until I'd been playing around with the plugin for a while. Very reasonable for a nice little extension.


Not working and no support


Posted on 30 December 2013

I can't get this plugin to work so I tried to get some support. Registration on the support forum doesn't work so no questions can be asked. Contact form doesn't work either - it gives a message "Sending failed. Error: ???" with no actual error written.

If you can't get it to work by yourself, disable it and find another plugin, don't loose your time trying to get some help.

Owner's reply: Sorry you couldn't get it working, and me not being there to support you.
I was not aware that the contact form or forum registration was not working but it should be fixed now.
My hosting service had altered some settings rendering my settings for e-mail server faulty so my site has not been sending out registration e-mails or e-mails to me from the contacts page.

Again sorry, and please reach out to me again if you want to give it another shot!

Although it's a very simple plugin to use, it has wisely considered additional settings as well, thus room for advanced usage.



I easily found the required codes by reading the Documentation.


Great Help!


Posted on 04 October 2013

I used this in several projects. I even got in touch with the developer and he helped add new custom features. I appreciate all the hard work that goes into the making of modules and plugins like this. If you need a Popup option in Joomla - USE THIS ONE! And donate to developers every now and again!


Amazing Documentation

Great piece of work with excellent manual. Spot on.

This is a very easy to use, yet powerful, upload file(s) module for Joomla. It can be as simple as just adding the directory to upload to, or you can chose to use any of the below listed functions. Version 1.3.5 is tested and verified on Joomla 3.3! !!!Security Release 2012-01-02!!! JED found an exploit in the code where they managed to upload a file named "file.php5". Unfortunately I had not added php5 to the blocked extensions list but now (version 1.3.5) it is added along with .php6 and an extra check to see if ".php" exists in the file-name! Please make sure to update to version 1.3.5 as soon as possible! UPDATE 2010-01-04: To be even more on the safe side I have now added code to inspect GIF comments. There is a new option called "Block PHP GIF comments" in the settings which is default set to "Yes" which will read any GIF comment and block the upload if the comment contains any PHP code! !!!Security Release!!! It includes the following key features: - Multiple modules on the same page with different settings - "Add Note" to uploaded files - Image re-size - Automated thumbnail creation for images - Image compress for JPEG and PNG - Now supports both "User Named Directory" and "User Defined Directory"! (see below) - CAPTCHA - List files in upload directory in pop-up (FancyBox) - Multiple files upload - Notification e-mail - And more... More features: - Integrated Ajax in Joomla framework - "Blacklist" of extensions (threat-protection) - Multi select file browser for FireFox 3.6+ versions - Info popup-box now contains the link (URL) - URL attached in e-mail notice - Redirect option after uploading - User Named Directory: You can set a root path for User Named Directories, e.g. "/home/users/" and then select which users should have the option to use the directory. - User Defined Directory: You can select from the list of users and add custom directory paths for the user. - Multiple choice of upload paths added. If a users has "User Named Directory" and/or "User Defined Directory" the user will get a pop-up box asking for the directory to upload to. - List files option from upload directory in "pop-up" - Form Fields can now be collected into the same file. A few JED Image Galleries are using a parameter file for labels/description of images. - Multiple languages. Joomla 3.0 is now supported! User Named Directories and User Defined Directories now also works on Joomla 3.+! Take care! Regards, Anders

Simple File Lister

The idea behind Simple File Lister is to use it in combination with Simple File Upload (http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/core-enhancements/file-management/8424) to list the files in a directory. Version 1.0 is tested and verified on Joomla 2.5! (2012-01-14) Use download for version 1.6/1.7! It can also be used to list any directory with files beside an article. Imagine you have a F.A.Q. and some PDF files that goes with it, then have your F.A.Q. article and add Simple File Lister as a module on that page and provide the directory for the directory with PDF's and Simple File Lister will automatically provide a list of URL's for each PDF. Another use is to use it for a user so that they can keep track, and use, the files they have uploaded through Simple File Upload. I have now worked a bit on the design and changed from using a UL/LI list which seemed to cause problems on several templates to instead use DIV's for the list. Added the possibility to add icons and thumbnails. Also added support to list directories. Update 2011-02-13: - Joomla 1.6 now also supported as parallel package. - Swedish added to languages. Update 2011-02-13: - Added support for Ajax when stepping through directory list, i.e. the whole page don't need reloading if using Next/Previous buttons. - Added jQuery conflict support between "Simple File Upload" and "Simple File Lister" (Technical: $app->set('jquery', 'true')) Update 2011-02-17: - Added functionality to browse sub-directories. - Added setting for allowing browse of sub-directories. - Added breadcrumb when browsing through sub-directories. Update 2011-03-05: - Added support for sorting files by name. - Added setting for "user sort" and "default" sort order. - Added Module Class Suffix property. Update 2011-03-24: - Bug fix, relative paths, like "./../tmp/" was not showing the correct links. Update 2011-05-21: - Bug fix, paths gone wrong if using a sub-domain like "http://sub.domain.com" instead of "http://domain.com/sub". Server base path must be set under advanced parameters! EDIT 2011-05-22: Delete function added! You can now set Simple File Lister to allow the user to delete files in the list. You can set it to allow delete for any user, even not logged in (NOT RECOMMENDED!) or on registered and logged in users or only those users who are set as "Editors" in your Joomla site. I also fixed a bug that threw you back to default directory if changing the sort order inside a sub-directory. Please use the delete function with care! Joomla 3.0 version released in separate package! Take Care! Regards, Anders
