It does more things, but that's what I used it for. In my case, I imported articles from two different Joomla sites into a new site.
Even though the component is free there is support. I was confused about something and within hours the developer clarified what I needed to do in my case.
Needless to say I clicked on his paypal donation button and was happy to give him a donation -- for such a time saver. Without this component I would have spent countless hours -- and it took care of it all in minutes.
This module works across all types -- desktop, tablet and cell. Android and Iphone.
Equally important is their prompt and expert support. On one of my sites there was a misbehaving plugin which was conflicting with the player. The player was fine, but the programming on the other 3rd party plugin was flawed. They went in and fixed the other party's plugin and resolved the issue quickly.
I'll be using this module for all of my sites going forward.
The photo display is stunning.
BTW the demo on the demo site at demo.minitek.gr/ site takes some time to load, but that is only the way their demo system is set up. The actual extension loads right away.
The developer helped me with some modifications I needed to make. And stuck with me as I went back and forth in the forum. A quality extension, and prompt and friendly and expert support. That is something I value!
I install this in all my joomla sites. It keeps me, as SuperAdministrator logged in and keeps me from being kicked out.
This lets me set a low session time in Joomla's control panel, which is what we want for site security.
Before I had this plug in I would set my sessions for much too long a time.
This fixes all of that.
Thanks for this gem!
With ReDJ you won’t have to know anything about htaccess or other programming tricks to redirect a page.
First of all you're making your changes via a user friendly admin panel rather than editing the htaccess file in notepad – which if you make a mistake the results can take your site down.
ALSO for those who use Godaddy hosting where the htaccess file is not always updated immediately (Godaddy's updates to htaccess file can take up to an hour) the changes in ReDJ take place instantly. The changes made in ReDJ are not written to the htacces file.
Also you can publish and unpublish your redirects which can be handy.
A great extension that I know you will like.

Basically it does what it says. It can show the background image in various ways, for example stretching it if necessary, etc etc.
My client likes it and works nicely.
After I installed it I made a suggestion regarding random image capability. Within a day or so they added that feature to the module.
I recommend JUX Background Slideshow.
I have reviewed quite a few Joomla components over the years but AdminTools Professional is the most important extension and the absolute first extension you must install.
What’s the use of installing a zillion great components and goodies – only to later find that all your hours and weeks and months of hard work has been destroyed because your site was hacked. By installing Admin Tools Professional first you can be ensured that your site is as safe as can be. Yes, you still need to be viligent and must educate yourself about Joomla security. An essential first start would be to read the documentation that comes with AdminTools, as well as Nickolas various articles and blogs. AdminTools is a solid foundation to ensure your site’s security.
Although I had great experiences with developer Nicholas’ excellent Joomla Akeeba Backup, I was nervous about installing a security component. I was worried it would be so complicated that I would only make things worse. But as it turned out installing Admin Tools was easy and activating its many security features, including the Web Application Firewall was a no-brainer. Taking advantage of its advanced features in the Pro version was easy too – especially the important .htaccess Maker, which further bulletproofs your site from spammers and hackers.
Equally important is the support Nickolas provides on the ticket forum. Nicholas provides expert and patient help – and listens to suggestions and has frequent updates which make AdminTools even better.
I am very happy I discovered AdminTools Professional. Do yourself a favor. Get it!!
This worked in 5 seconds. Installed it. Enabled the plugin.
Choose a "Get" word and then the site is hidden to everyone except those who know the "Get" word. Can have multiple Get words for different people. Or can use a static ip as access to the development site. These are just a few of the features. You can have a custom HTML page -- but I chose the default page.
Encouraged by the reviews I installed this one. Worked real nicely. You upload your images to the module's image directory and then, within the module choose which images you want and what order, as well as an overall transition.
Thanks for this well thought through module.
I installed SP Upgrade on my development server. Did the easy configuration to import the data and database from the old site. And pushed the button and within minutes my site was migrated to my development server.
What would have taken days took minutes!
Highly recommended by Rowby!!
I scrambled to the Joomla Extensions site, hoping to find a true find and replace that would make changes in the mysql database.
And I found this GEM! Works really nice with a preview of what you are replacing.
I easily replaced one YouTube video ID with the new one. In seconds!
Of course you should backup your database first because we all know what surprises can happen when we do a find and replace. I use good old Akeeba Backup to to the backup first and then I ran DB Replacer.
This gem is an example of the great open source extensions that us end users need to thank talented developers, such as NoNumber -- the author of this valuable Joomla component.
This one is perfect. Very easy to use. All kinds of useful configurations.
I was especially impressed with the extension's built-in, easy to follow documentation. No need to have to find the website to get the essential documentation.
In my case I got it working in about 4 minutes.
It would have taken my hours to make the changes.
With this component I put the HTML that I wanted to change in the "top box" and the replacement HTML in the bottom box. I hit the button and in seconds my mysql database was updated.
I've looked for a component like this for years, for Joomla. It arrived here in the extensions library just when I needed it!
The module itself has built in documentation right within the module. There is a link right in the module to the website for further help.
And the module is elegantly designed for both a newbie who may not understand xml, and for the advanced user who is comfortable in xml.
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.
