Pick a popup technology and assign articles or typed in content to a menu item entry, that’s it. The plugin remembers showing the Splash Screen in the user’s session cookie, so it will only be shown one time per page. A special configuration mode allows you to disable this cookie behavior to fine-tune the settings. You can also choose a number of seconds to delay the Splash Screen and decide to show it only to special user groups, e.g. guests only.

Note: JH Splash Screen requires Joomla 3.2 or newer.

How to setup JH Splash Screen

  1. Activate plugin
  2. Pick a User Group to present Splash Screens to
  3. Enter a number of seconds for delaying the Splash Screen
  4. Choose a Popup Technology (e.g. Joomlas Squeeze Box or Magnific Popup)
  5. Enter Splash Screen width and height
  6. Choose a Background Color
  7. Assign an article or custom content to any number of webpages
  8. Finally, switch Configuration Mode OFF to enable the cookie, that remembers to show Splash Screens only one time
  9. Don't forget to save the plugin configuration after each modification

Functionality

This actually does what it's supposed to do (deliver a pop-up/splash over a website) for specific menu items or targeted user groups.

Ease of use

Just needed to tweak the "viewing levels" to allow it to interface with some custom user groups, but it worked pretty well.

Support

None required at this stage; I was evaluating the product for testing purposes. Unable to comment further.

Documentation

Adequate for most purposes. As mentioned, there was a need to modify the Joomla viewing levels but, after this was done, it worked.

I used this to: Evaluation purposes. I discovered, however, that the plugin affected the CSS styling of the website and caused the font-family to "revert" to Times New Roman; this isn't a particularly good look. For a version "0.x" development, the extension shows good potential. Thanks.

Excellent plugin

Owner's reply: Dear Dimos,

the feature you are describing is not included, there is no timer to hide the popup that is not working. However there is a DELAY value that you may enter that counts a certain number of seconds BEFORE the splash screen will appear.

Best regards

Support

Sent an email to the developer, but ended up resolving the immediate issue (blank site) myself. Haven't heard back from them, yet.

I used this to: Home page popup. As soon as I activated the extension, things went south. I couldn't even log in to the admin area of the site. I ended up using phpMyAdmin out of cPanel to find the JH entry in the extensions table and then deleted that record. Site came back up.

Turn all article images into clickable popup lightboxes without having to touch the content. No shortcodes required, slim code, small footprint. How it works: JH Image Popup scans articles for regular images inserted with an (img) tag and applies the modal popup to them. You just pick a popup technology in the plugin configuration and your image popups ready to go. JH Image Popup loads all popup code files from a CDN (content delivery network), which speeds up loading time for your visitors. (Using multiple HTTP channels; also, since most of them will already have the popup code in some cache.) Tip: When inserting your images in the articles use the the largest size and scale it down with the width and/or height attributes. Note: JH Image Popup works on inline images inside articles, and featured articles on the homepage). How to setup JH Image Popup: Go to the Plugin Manager and publish the plugin System - JH Image Popup Enter the plugin configuration and pick a popup technology (e.g. Joomlas internal popups or MagnificPopup) Reload a frontend page containing images and check if the popups look good to you. If not, just pick a different popup technology. Supported Popup Technologies: Version 0.8.8 supports five popup technologies, most of them act responsive. Joomla’s built-in SqueezeBox (MooTools): This is basically the same popup you sometimes see being used in the administration backend. JH Image Popup simply loads the already installed popup library into the frontend. Colorbox lightbox2: This is the original lightbox in it's latest version. Seems to work well with large images and is also responsive. MagnificPopup Swipebox: Connects all images on the page and allows to swipe between them. Note that these popup technologies offer a ton of configuration options which are not included in JH Image Popup’s plugin configuration. This is to keep things as simple as possible at this time, just pick a popup and be done with it. In case of problems: If you encounter trouble using one or the other popup mechanism, simply try another. With so many variations of frontend and UI libraries it is impossible to foresee which mechanism works best in your individual environment. If you still have problems or just want to drop a message, please use the contact form. In case everything works fine: Just leave a note in the great Open Source community of the Joomla Extension Directory so other people know if this plugin was helpful to you.
