Have been using this module for a long time now. Love it because it's simple. Simplicity is the key to success.

Thank you.

This module does what it promises: displaying an image or a flash animation in a module position is piece of cake.

And user support is excellent: I found a small bug in the latest version, reported it to Omar, and within hours I received a reply with an updated version of the extension that fixed the problem!

Great module

Nice and easy. took me a few minutes to realise that I had to enter a relative link not an absolute one for it to work. For ease of use, is it possible to add a "Browse" to the image selection process? Would make it much simpler than have to input manually. Keep up the excellent work!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review :)

unfortunately, it is not possible for a module to have a browse button, but its still fairly easy to hold any image/flash you want..

Really nice module

This module was just the right thing I needed to change my site logo in back end and have a link for it.

Good Module

Hi There, this is a good module for display static pictures- great job. However, it would be even better if I was able to display the image without any white background- is there a way to do this? THank you in advance.

Owner's reply: Simple Image Holder doesn't put any background.
please email me your problem, and i'd be happy to help.

Great Module

This module is a great addition to the Jommla extension library. It it simple to use, and does not interfere with any other module. I do have one suggestion... Add an option for a caption, above or below the image that is being added. Thank you again for a great module.

Owner's reply: Hey Bel,
thanks for the suggestion, you'll probably see it implemented in the next version of SIH :)
and thanks for the top rating.

Trying to get banners to work with the template I was using and adding html to edit the template kept spoiling the table line and I could not find a way of putting in an image without using article content. This module did the job.

However, I got nervous when it disappeared from the modules list and I installed another module and it came back and works well (J1.5.14) (may be local issue)

It would be very useful if further simple images could be added, though I do not know whether this is possible using modules.

Owner's reply: Hey Bjude,
you can always add more images by copying the module, and changing the data for each copy.

thanks for the great rating :)

I had the path to my flash file wrong and received a very fast response with instructions as to how to fix it. I love it.

Great Addition!!

Thanks for your hard work
