Simple Pop-Up Popular Plugin

Use Simple PopUp to show a message, as a image gallery, add any content to it from the Joomla Article editor.
Pop-it up on page load (or not), pop-up only once for each user using cookies, add links through the Article as well. No need for menu items to pop-up the box! (version 1.1 only, see below).

Simple PopUp will let you add a FancyBox Pop-up on any page. The message is written in the Article as "hidden" text.

It will use the styling you give it when creating it in the Article complete with text styling, images, lines and/or tables.

How to use:

1) Install the plugin package.
2) Enable it in the PlugIn Manager!
3) In any article add the popup brackets {simplepopup}


Tons of new stuff packed into this one!

The most exciting is that I have added support for Youtube videos and put in a lot more flexibility into the settings through a bunch of new parameters.

Here is a list of all the added parameters: name, textalign, width, height, autodimensions, scrolling, cookie, popup, link, url, gallery, cssclass, articleid, title, titleposition, hideonoverlayclick, hideoncontentclick, closebutton, transitionin/transitionout, speedin/speedout, overlayshow, overlayopacity, overlaycolor, video, autoplay

See the users guide for version 2.0 for a more detailed explanation.


I am quite excited about my new version...


- Simple PopUp, regular PopUp like the one demo:ed on the previous page.
- Multiple PopUp's on the same page using links to open them.
- Prevent the PopUp at page load (like on this page), but not on the previous page where the PopUp opens at page load.
- Use external content through URL, e.g. adding
- Use image in PopUp, also using title (description) for images.
- Use it as a Image Gallery, open the first image and then have "next" and "previous" navigation buttons to change image.
- Cookie support added (2011-07-30)! You can chose to only show the pop-up once to each visitor. See the manual for more information.

Added support for using Joomla Login Form in the PopUp, sample here:
See the manual for details!

Just what I was looking for! I already bought a paid one, but it didn't work properly, and support was not good. I found this one and tried it out, and it is working like a charm. First I had problems, but the developer helped me the same. And above all: free!

This plugin looks really good and is easy to install. I've used it on one of my organisation's websites, to inform people about a certain sign-up date. It works like a charm.

More importantly: the developer was really quick to answer my questions. So a big thank you for that! and keep up the good work!

I had a compatibility issue with my template after install - the developer Anders replied to my email immediately and instructed me how to get around the problem and get the extension working within minutes! Awesome! I've never received better service, even when I paid for an extension. Thank you Anders!

Thank you for that great plugin.
Can it be modified by setting a time limit of the pop up to be displayed?

I just couldn't get the plugin to work and did not understand why. Anders checked it out and found another plugin messing up the code. So he changed his code and got me a new version! Guess what? It works fine now!!

anders, thank you very much for the plugin and the excellent service! 5 stars!

My experience: medium. I can build some nice websites, but when it comes to PhP coding... I am lost

I actually dug up my login information, just so I could post on here about this wonderful plugin. I couldn't be happier, and once I worked out a few settings bugs with the developer (Who was Johnny on the spot btw), It's working awesome on my site.

This is an excelent plugin that allows me to show messages in a very easy way to my users.
I had some problems withthe setup and sent a e-mail to the developer who answerd within minutes. wow!
I missed that there was a manual how to use the plugin on the same page as download.

I like this very much and will use it for a image gallery as well!
Super function!

Good job!

Great concept, and it works great. Like the way i can add it to any article, rather than have it be a module. thank you!!

I just stumbled upon this when looking at Simple File Lister by the same developer and this was perfect for telling our users that they can now download manuals directly from the site and that the FTP was closed.

Setup was very easy and the text showed correct but I would like more features for design and a CSS.

I find this pluggin excellent and very simple of use. Unfortunately, I have a problem of display under Google Chrome and under Safari. With this 2 navigator, the window popup is not displayed entirely.
