Image overlay, Popups & iFrames

Splash Screen popups with any article or custom content on any webpage.

  • Favourite
  • Report

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

Perfect, does exactly what is says it does.
Ease of use
Very easy, good instructions. Easy to set up and configure. Can set display once or every time page loaded, very useful for a quick reminder
Excellent, simple and clear.
I used this to: At least one website at the moment and I expect I will use on many more in the future.
After successfully create a splash screen and set the display time it was appearing for ever. Display tine doesn't work as also the one time
Ease of use
Very easy
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

Does exactly what it says it does. Shows required content in a splash screen on a required page.
Ease of use
Really easy to use.
I did not need support, so can't judge. But I am so happy with the plugin, I will give them the benefit of the doubt.
Instructions are clear and concise.
I used this to: Our company website.
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.
Cannot actived

I used this to: my joomla website front page
Owner's reply: There is most likely another plugin causing a conflict. Here at JED, however is not the support platform. You can contact me at or click on the SUPPORT button on the right side of this JED entry.

Ease of use
very easy to configure. good interface. a doddle.
excellent. I contacted the developer on one occasion and received a comprehensive and courteous reply within an acceptable time-frame
documentation for configuration is as comprehensive as it needs to be, but some additional documentation on some classes would be helpful
I used this to: I use the plugin for creating an introductory splashscreen for my Joomla! website. My client is delighted.
