Revolver Maps Module

This is a module to display a revolver maps 3d globe (from www.revolvermaps.com) displaying a dot (with flag icons and locations) for each current visitor on your website.

No registration required at www.revolvermaps.com, just change the parameters in your Joomla admin panel or visit http://revolvermaps.com/?target=setup and copy & paste the generated code they give you in the Joomla admin panel parameter.

Important Note: The ID it installs with is for my demo site. If you want to reset the visitor count and associate it with just your site, you'll need to visit www.revolvermaps.com and take your ID from the script code:
For example:

rm_f1st('0','280','true','false','000000','3sv7MUqXeMI','true','ff0000');

or

<param name="i" value="3sv7MUqXeMI" />

The Unique ID code would be "3sv7MUqXeMI" (without the double-quotes)

ChangeLog:

v1.2
- Checked compatibility: Internet Explorer v6+, Mozilla Firefox v3.5+, Google Chrome v5+
- Trimmed any spaces from posted data and html code.
- Used revolvermaps.com selection of "width x height" values.
- Added alignment parameter ("float") relative to its container.
- Added div and parameter "module class" so that class name actually works...
- Added parameter to switch between Java (applet) or Flash (swf)

v1.1
- Separated all parameters to be configured in the Joomla admin panel
- No need to visit revolvermaps.com to generate code
- Language file created (English GB only)

v1.0
- Added GNU/GPL License information to xml/php
- Removed must agree to license
- Moved to section not requiring registration

This extension is very good, you can use revolver map in joomla 2.5 by simply adding the web code (javascript) into a javascript module (search javascript extension module)

Nice extension. Though it navigates the visitor away from your site. I agree with the person who requested for one which can open in a different window.

Love the way this module (and revolver maps) works and looks. But why oh why can't the link open in a new window. The reasoning on the FAQ "your guests will come back, don't worry" doesn't really work for me ;-) Agree with earlier posts suggesting a commercial version at a reasonable fee without link and logo.

I couldn't use Google based visitor maps on one of my websites.
This was pretty simple to install and it took just a minute or two to get the "code" for my map.

I must confess I tried this several months ago and I didn't like it--- I never paid attention to the importance of changing the "code". Now it works great (and correctly). Thanks for the Module

It's a nice module integrating Revolver Maps. However, I found a problem with the override script section of the module; hoping it would override the options displayed, on frontend it shows a cropped 3d globe and doesn't display what was in the override textbox. (perhaps this was geared more to 3d rather than 2d?)

If the override is to display the contents directly, then there's a problem with it. (I attempted to override using code that displays a 2D map)

but all in all, it's a great effort! Keep up the good work.

It would be helpful if you could add the Module Class Suffix parameter to the admin panel.
Owner's reply

Thanks for the vote strategist. I realized v1.1 didn't use this parameter and have fixed this with v1.2. v1.1 was originally just jokingly submitted for a friend who asked if it could be done. In v1.2, the module class suffix applies to the DIV layer of the module. If it is blank then the module ignores it.

There are some issues with this well thought out and executed extension. I would like to see a way of centering the display. Also, there is, as another user pointed out, a border next to the display?
One other issue, the display, using FireFox and a PC, is cut off at the bottom. This is not seen with my Mac using FireFox, too.
Owner's reply

Thanks for the vote!

Unfortunately I've been unable to recreate the border issue. Some parameters were not properly registering which I've fixed in v1.2. This may help. Another parameter I've added lets you switch between Flash (swf) and Java (applet) to see if this resolves the issue. I've tried adding the alignment parameter which will work for "left" and "right" (using float) but "center" depends on the container the module it is in.

Excellent little module!

Only one small gripe… when used in some Internet explorer sessions there is a large frame of white showing at the bottom and to the right of the flash image. This varies depending on size you specify. You would not notice this with a white page background only with dark backgrounds. The help on the site identifies it as a zoom setting problem on some browsers. Would be even better if you could workaround/remove this bug in some way?
Owner's reply

Thanks for the vote Bighare! :c)

I've added some parameters such as switching between Java / Flash and only allowing a selection of the width x height set by www.revolvermaps.com. You can still download v1.1 if you don't want that restriction.

I must say I was in doubt when I loaded this into one of my test sites and I take back my words. :-)

Super little Module - EXCELLENT - Loaded First Time!

I would even donate to this module if it could do a bit more: Would be excellent if it could link to Users in the website from Joomlas Admin section showing where your friends were and not just map links.... thanks for module.

At First i thought this was going to be the same as every other basic noob application you find on here nowa days, with the exception of the Talented Few.

I Installed this on both my sites, and would gladly say i would pay for this module, and i have NEVER SAID THIS ABOUT ANY OTHER MODULE ON THIS SITE.

not only did i Get a REAL TIME RESPONSE From the Developer, but he also gave me his personal Skype, for one on one Tech Support.

over the years i have tried and tested a LOT of Joomla Ext's and would give this a 5 Star Rating.

Very Original, and Refreshing.

I think the Developer Deserves the Credit for his hard work, i have seen many people looking for this type of EXT and they simply cant find one. Not only this but the Quality of this Product is Flawless. Low Lag, Easy Customizable, User Friendly, Simple Install,

The Quality of the Work is Shown in this Product.

This is a very flashy and fun module! Installs very cleanly and easily, is very simple to work with, and does what it says it does. For web designers, it's easily resized to fit where you want it to be, and is truly fun to look at on the user-experience side. Great job Joe and thanks so much for this!
