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4/26/2012 - Joomla 1.5/1.6/1.7 availability and support withdrawn.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.
One is stuck with the top bar wether one wants to have skip enabled or not and sometime the bar remains once the main site is entered.
I'd like to see that "bar remains" issue in action. Please contact me so I can get that issue resolved.
With a few little tricks to the article that I am using and it will be really cool.
You should add a commercial version with some bells and whistles.
I'm happy to add bells and whistles (suggestions?), but I don't do commercial versions. It's like a philosophy or something...maybe it's a syndrome :)
Seriously though, it gives me great pleasure to create useful extensions and provide them for free.... I benefit from donations, certainly, but I benefit more from the public code examples. My potential clients get to see examples of my work and the good reviews (thank you).
One more thing to add to the wish-list is to separate out the presentation and follow an MVC model, so that I've got a bit more control via HTML overrides. At the moment, if I want to make a change to the output HTML file, I have to edit code within the mod_splashr.php file itself which, next time I apply an update I'll have to remember to do again.
And I'm sure it's a typo, but the container div id is currently named 'slashpage' - unless those are kind of web sites you work on, obviously ;)
Overall though, a very nice extension to use.
Native Joomla SqueezeBox modal has been added in the J1.6 version.
PS please Incorporate the Light Box effect
Lightbox version has been created, and will be released very shortly (after a little more testing)
Does what it says on the tin, and being able to have the content article without site styling is another nice feature.
Lightbox would be a nice addition but it works just fine as it is.
Yours is the second request I've had for Lightbox. I will be adding it to the next release.
Lightbox, not a bad idea. That may be an option in the next version.
As far as it not really being a splash, there isn't really a defined standard for what a splash is supposed to be. I chose this method because it is SEF (this method is invisible to search engines).
Annoy your users, not your PageRank.
