SplashR Module

Display a completely configurable splash page on your site. SplashR offers configurable frequency, autohide duration, and destination URL for a complete splash page solution. Splash pages can appear on every page load, once per session, or once per a configurable number of days.

New in version 1.1 for Joomla 1.6/1.7 - By popular request - a Squeezebox modal option in addition to fullscreen splash.
Version 1.2 - added ability to prevent skip in modal view, as well as ability to use "null" to remove the title text from the fullscreen view.

4/26/2012 - Joomla 1.5/1.6/1.7 availability and support withdrawn.

All of my extensions are free and none of my extensions display advertisements or links to my sites or services. If you feel that I have blessed you, then you can bless me by making a contribution to fund future development. Visit the "Website" link to make a contribution.

Very nice and easy to configure splashscreen. Works right out of the box, just install, configure and activate. Great module and offered for free! :-)

This is a great product - invaluable for many sites in my opinion. Not being particularly smart I sent the developer an email about configuration set-up and he replied within 2 hours! How's that for support for a free product!

We are lucky to have people like Michael Richey supporting the Joomla community

First, this extension does exactly what it says and it is very straight forward. The configuration is good, and with the way this was developed, if you are a pro with coding, this can be modified to exceptional detail. If you are a beginner, the support on this extension is superb. Whether there is an intro page, promotions page, event, or sale, whatever the need, this extension allows you to do so with minimal work. Great Job!

No Doubt, what I had thought was complex process and clients asking me "Can you do a splash screen" NOW i can and much easier than the attempts before. Many thanks and worth a donation.
Owner's reply

I had a customer who wanted a splash screen too, and everything I found was so complicated and convoluted (not to mention unreliable and ugly) that I knew I needed to come up with a different way.

Version 2.0 is just around the corner, and it will add much more functionality!

1 of my customer asked me to build a splash/landing page for their site, at first I thought they were crazy. But they insisted, so I thought I would create a simple static page that would redirect to the main site. Then I got lazy and thought there must be an easier way of doing it...and VOILA.

SplashR just does the job and the support is impeccable I sent an email to the dev and he answered within the hour with the solution to the problem.

Fantastic extension all the same and well done!

This module works great with a lot of features that are customizable to the end-user. You have the flexibility of using your own page or a page already built. I highly recommend this module.

I downloaded and installed this extension with the intent of using it as an age verification entry page for an alcohol-related website. SplashR installed without a hitch on Joomla 2.5, and the initial configuration was straight forward and intuitive. I did run into an issue with the outbound links for the splashR page content, and not being able to locate any documentation, I emailed Michael about it. I heard back from him very quickly and he explained in detail exactly how the links needed to be configured in order to work as expected. With that info, I was able to make the extension function as I needed it to. I have since exchanged a few emails with Michael regarding styling and additional functionality, and he has always replied promptly and courteously, taking time to fully answer my questions. It sounds like the extension is under active development, and with a couple of tweaks and some documentation, this will be an Excellent extension! Looking forward to further development, and I am adding Michael to my short list of go-to developers for future extension needs!

The module is under active development. I have a new version that will be released around April. There are still a few bugs to work out, and a few more features to add based on suggestions from users (like spoonbow here).

Dude, you look like Gregory House (House is one of my favorite shows)

Putting out an interesting or useful extension is one thing - but the real test is the support.

I have been using SplashR on my Joomla 1.5 site and I'm now migrating to 2.5... well, I hit a snag and SplashR had a problem (which I later found out was my problem) - the important part was the support which spotted my problem.

Great work. Great extension. Great support.

Installs in seconds. Simple to configure. Lots of easy to understand options. If you have a message that you need to get out to your site visitors and members this is the perfect option. I made a small error in configuring the module and had the answer from the developer within an hour. Excellent all around and free to boot!

Is there any possobility for adding a custom html file from my computer instead of an external URL link?

Owner's reply

Only if you upload the file to your website, and point splashr to the URL. Unless your computer is a server, splashr can't display files located on it.

simple to use , work like a charm

In theory it sounds great! Maybe I haven't set it up right but based on the instructions in the module parameters that is probably why.

I published module on a specific page in various module position, I specified the URL of the page and nothing happens. I tried a few different things but just couldn't get it working.

I'm sure it DOES work >>> but you should really instruct people better, if not in the module, somewhere on your web site. PLEASE.
Owner's reply

I wish you would have contacted me before hurting my reputation like this. Support questions for my extensions are answered immediately.

Yes, the module works, as the many positive reviews below indicate. Several also indicate my high level of support. Please contact me via my site so I can help you out and get rid of this blight in my reviews.

You probably have something misconfigured - it will be quick, I promise.

I love this extension. It does what it's supposed to.

Just one suggestion: It would be even better if admin has option to lock out users from website completely, i.e. until they register or login. If I put login/register module inside splashr, then user cannot enter without having done either.

Still, I love it!
Owner's reply


I may investigate that request in the near future. This extension needs a new revision with some fresh features.

Thanks for the suggestion.
