However I am not able to change font style(size,color)in FLDIVCONTENTMODE box.
I needed to modify the helper.php code directly.
At the moment i do not understand the issue with font color and size. Please get in contact via email, i need an explaination.
Also great is you can set your image as a background image if you want. That is really cool!
And, keep in mind, you don't have to use this only for headers. You can use it for any image where you would like the flexibility (such as easily making your image a background image) that Flexheader3 provides.
Bravo to Andre.
This installation and configuration was easy and it works perfectly. Also the debug-window which show you the names for the page, sections, categories is great.
I highly recommend you to try this component. You won't be disappointed!
Keep up the good work!
I love this extension! Thanks for putting it together!
I would suggest to update the documentation and make it specific for Flexheader3, instead of 2. Other than that, flawless.
Thank you very much. I am working on a new website and i will try to update the documentation this year.
The only thing I can think of that would make this better and 100% perfect is if it could display several photos in a rotating sideshow fashion.
My only gripe is that the module doesn't Validate when Flash content is used. I use Flash content a lot, so I realise how difficult it is to get it to validate, but it's definitely possible, using the Flash Satay method or similar. Minor detail, I know, but some people take their validation seriously... (a bit too seriously, some would say.)
My problem is, that i do not know posibilties to load flash in all browsers without breaking the xhtml. I searched for a solution over the web, but most sites say: You have to use that buggy methods to support all browsers. If you know methods and sites, that can load flash without breaking xhtml > please write me an email. Thank you very much.
The innovation here is that the module displays overlays debug info in the front end that tells you what to name the image so that it will work on that particular page. This makes it easy to match images to particular pages. There is an option for a default image.
The header images must be all be the same size as the size is specified within the module. There is support for multiple modules that I have not tried.
I have not tried the advanced features include DIVs and Joomfish support. VM support requires a license for ShopHeader but there is no info or price for this option. The developer website has good docs for FlexHeader2 which looks very similar to the beta I installed.
Flexheader3 now includes the VirtueMart Support for free.
