An efficient Blank View Component for the case when you only have modules on your page.
Gone with the wasteful "Featured Articles" menu item types.
FMJ Blank Views come with five different blank views - each with its own efficiency, adapting to your needs. You can also embed static or dynamic content.

**** Newsflash (8.12.2017) ****
Version 1.1.0 is out now, with added functionality: Include static content or PHP code in the blank view.

- Several views are available to the user. This means that, you can choose the best view that suits your needs, and still have the most efficient code running it.
- In the Simple- and Totally Blank views, it is possible to embed HTML (via editor or file inclusion) or PHP (via Textarea eval or file inclusion).
- Optimized and efficient code, in order to save CPU cycles and memory consumption. We avoid unnecessary code executions.
- Faster response times, due to code efficiency.

- Start with the Simple Blank View, which processes all menu options, like: class definitions, page headers and titles, metadata, etc... Then move up to the other views according to your needs in order to be even more efficient.


Works as advertised.

FMJ-Banners Supercharger extends the default Joomla Banner system in terms of SEO and target selection, providing a lot more flexibility and less hassle. Features SEO (direct) url links - instead of the internal click-registration and 303 redirect, we set the destination-url directly in the href attribute of the banner and calling the 'click-counter' with javascript. Automatic (and optionally manual) target selection. This sets the target attribute to visit the target in the same window or open up a new one. Flexible settings using defaults in the plugin and customizable settings directly in the "Banner Details" tab of each banner's settings. Hassle-free default settings! In most cases, users probably will not need to change any settings, either in the plugin or in the banners. Saves the user bandwidth (especially important in mobile networks), as the response to the plugin's javascript 'click-counter' request disables Joomla's redirect call and returns an empty response. Deals with the case where second call throws errors because your site is on https and the 'click' call is redirected to a non-secure (http) site. Freedom of putting Banners in any banner module, regardless of the module's target setting! While manipulating the anchor code and if 'Banner SEO-Link' is activated, the plugin removes the target settings that are defined in Joomla's Banner modules' settings. Works with jQuery or MooTools! Also, if the time comes to disable MooTools on your site, this plugin will just keep working as before. Future-Proof! Performance optimized code! The plugin avoids unnecessary database calls, as well as unnecessary code execution. For the user this means faster response times as well as saving cpu cycles and energy, which helps the environment. Tips Most users will find that the default settings of the plugin and the corresponding Banner-settings will yield the best results, without having to change anything. Requirements Joomla 3.x or newer PHP 5.4 or newer
