I used this to: A couple of my sites, one that has new content on two days a week to the frontpage. Articles are prepared in advance on one, publish dates set up to a month ahead, then when the next article is due, this plugin un-features the previous week's article. Magic!

When I found this, I thought it was just what I wanted to be able to have a posh notification option.

A doddle to set up and use, though the bar did not appear at first. BUT that was down to my not noticing the option of where to display it!

Minimal but also all that is necessary to get it working!

Free Countdown Module


Posted on 27 October 2014
Just what I needed to add a little countdown script to my Joomla site. I know I could have used an actual script but this module allows simple set up and embedding (loadmodule lodposition) within an article exactly where you want it.

Could be improved by Zeroing the countdown once complete. Or do as I've done, make the article unpublish once the time reaches zero.
Owner's reply: Thanks for your review and rating. Both are most welcomed! I just released a new version (1.1.0) that allow you to set a redirect URL when the counter reaches zero. Will look into coding a custom statement upon zero as time permits. Thank you once again.

Being looking for this for ages!


Posted on 30 July 2014
I've being looking for something like this for ages as I've needed somthing to allow me to include [CODE] options within a Joomla site review/hints and tips area.

Stumbled upon this free plugin and it does everything I wanted. No messing, downloaded, uploaded, enabled, works like a dream.

Exactly what I needed, thank you Yuri!

Amazing Thumbnail Slideshow!


Posted on 23 October 2013
Wow! For a free extension to do what this does is nearly unheard off. I wanted a simple to use thumbnail slider that I could add a caption to and this just does it.

Enabling it needed a quite read of the very clear instructions and once read, it was a doddle to get the sliding thumbnails to appear where I wanted them.

It took me longer to work out how to add a description to the slideshow within my article than it did to install! (Edit the article, not the module).

The one thing I would have liked to find was that it was possible to add the description to the enlarged image, but other than that, this is a perfect Joomla 2.5 extension, thank you!

Flexi Custom Code


Posted on 19 June 2013
I use php to create a dynamic copyright line on my sites. I've tried DirectPHP which works perfectly within an Article, but didn't in a module.

This mod allows you to set up a module that includes php so I copied and pasted all my existing php year code as well as the text and formatting I wanted from the template and positioned the module exactly where I wanted it.

PHP Year code now displays perfectly within a Module, and it's free. Can't ask for more!
