ARI Pretty Photo
This extension is exactly what I needed to please a client. An automatic lightbox popup on the homepage of my joomla site.

I created a AriPrettyPhoto module and adjusted the parameter settings including the one that set it to 'open on load.' It asked me to create text for the popup to link from even though I didn't want text on my page so I used a period . as the link. And because I wanted this to basically be an invisible popup, I created a new module position and inserted it at the end of one of my articles as a {loadposition myposition}. My lightbox popup automatically appears whenever my homepage is loaded.

I had a couple issues with my site and thought it was something to do with this extension. So I sent in a support ticket with ARI Soft and got a QUICK response back. They helped me realize that the error I was getting was with a different extension. Then they immediately fixed an issue with the 'close' image in the lightbox not appearing. Definitely went out of their way to help out and solve the problem.

A+ service and support!

DM Article Titles List Pro
I was so happy to see that this extension was created! All I wanted to do was list a couple of select articles of my choosing into a module on the home page. Latest News module didn't work and most of the other extensions I tried were limited.

This did it for me. All you do is choose the section OR category (yes, you can pick either one) and put a certain keyword in all the articles you want to use. So in one section I have three categories with a total of 30 articles. I picked three articles and put a keyword like "homenews" in the parameters keyword area. Then list the section and put that keyword in the module and tada! That was all it took.

Support is great. I had some minor issues and Daniele helped me right away.

Thanks for a great extension!
