Images, Site Links

siteLogo is a Joomla! Model-View-Controller(MVC) module to simplify multiple tasks when placing a logo on a website.
The tasks mentioned above are the creation of a division(div) with a background with or without the following options:

  • a link to a predesignated Uniform Resource Locator(URL) or the base URL of the website, or domainname.
  • GUI-event, hover- or mouseovereffect created with Sprites technology.
  • Separate Cascading Style Sheet(css) option.

Update: Some servers set the allowurlfopen and allowurlinclude PHP directives to off for security reasons (PHP include hack) which resulted in an error: Warning: getimagesize() ......

With the help of Mihai-Codrut Onofrei we resolved this issue by replacing the getimagesize by a cURL construction.

I started to use this module last year in order to animate some websites I created and I was very excited about how it performs. Very easy to deploy and configure. Recently, as my server got tightened for security purposes, I realized the module couldn't function anymore and I contacted the developer. Harry responded promptly and half day later came with a new version that resolved all the problems I raised.

What can I say more? Neat extension, great support!
Owner's reply: Hi Codrut,

We are glad we could help. Thanks again for your input and time while testing our updated module. There is also a 2.0 version available that is suitable for Joomla! 3.0.



INstallation and use

Posted on 10 September 2012
What can I say but this is such a simple extension but so highly prized by me.

It took all of 3 minutes to download and installl. Took a further 2 minutes to create the logo image I wanted and bingo; live in 5 minutes.

So So simple. My web page now has the logo at the bottom left on all pages.

An excellend PDF is avialble, which I quickly read, being a novice, and off we went.

The instructions were clear and concise and a pleaseure to read.

Thank you for a superb extension.
Owner's reply: Hello themrburns,
