NEW: version 3.2.0 for Joomla 3.2.x
New Functions in 220.127.116.11:
- run once per day or once per session
- How many times the floater has to run. Now every time a user has to re-read the box every time he loads that page which is annoying and it's useless in particular cases. Would be nice to set it: "run once", or "run x times". (based on cookies or for registered members).
One thing..... I see the developer put a lot of effort into the instructions. Good job. But they miss one important point, and thank you to jchris below for explaining the final aspect with regard to the module title.
This module is more versatile than the description states. It can be used with various module types, as long as you remember you MUST have the exact name of the module you wish to use in the 'Module Title' of the R3D Floater module. If not your content won't display.
Thank you Mr developer.
In the instructions page the 5. line is:
5.Now create a new instance of mod_newsflash with the following settings:
Instead mod_newsflash you can also create and publish a new custom html (modules/new/Custom HTML) and it also works excellent. But you have to change the module name to "custom" in module parameters page in (/extensions/module/r3d)(was "newsflash" as default)
Helpful tip: In the Module Parameters section, be sure to enter the Module Title of the module you want to display inside the floater. This isn't totally clear in the instructions. You may assume, as with other modules, that some of the parameters are optional. They are not. If you make a custom module with some code in it and title it Daily_Update, then you must enter the Module Name ("custom"), and the Module Title ("Daily_Update") for the floater to display your content. Hope this helps someone save some time getting it going.
It is absolutely necessary to follow the instructions exactly as described.
At my first attempts I made some mistakes and the pop-up did not work as I expected (pop up frame showed up but without module content).
I got quick & friendly support by r3d, so I finally managed to make it run.
Thank you very much for the nice software!
I did very little tweaking as the defaults seemed pretty close to what will work for me. Gives my Intranet site a flair of sophistication. Thanks!
