Joomla 3.5 and PHP7 verified working!



Please review the Forum and post there if you have problems, read the F.A.Q. and if you got no popup from Simple PopUp read this document to see if it is a jQuery related problem:


Use Simple PopUp to show a message, as a image gallery, add any content to it from the Joomla Article editor.

Pop-it up on page load (or not), pop-up only once for each user using cookies, add links through the Article as well. No need for menu items to pop-up the box! (not in version 1.0).

Simple PopUp will let you add a FancyBox Pop-up on any page. The message is written in the Article as "hidden" text. 

It will use the styling you give it when creating it in the Article complete with text styling, images, lines and/or tables.


How to use:


1) Install the plugin package.

2) Enable it in the PlugIn Manager!

3) In any article add the popup brackets { simplepopup } (without spaces)


Check this page for Advanced usage!



NEWS: Version 2.1 released!



All the features from 2.0 (of course) and a few bug fixes and the following new features:

- Open after a delay. Simply add "delayopen=3000" to wait 3 seconds (in milliseconds) to open the popup.

- Auto-close after a delay. Add "delayclose=10000" for closing the popup box after 10 seconds automatically.

- Open i iFrame. You can now load any external content into an iFrame. The property "boxstyle" can now be set to "iframe" and then you give the URL in the "url" property, e.g.:

{ simplepopup name="popJPG" boxstyle="iframe" url="images/headers/blue-flower.jpg" popup="false" }hidden{ /simplepopup }

- Open PDF in PDF Viewer (pdfjs). Set "boxstyle=pdf" and a URL to point to the PDF file to open it in a viewer:

{ simplepopup name="popPDF" boxstyle="iframe" url="" popup="false" autodimensions="true" }hidden{ /simplepopup }

NEWS: Version 2.0 released! (see below)



Tons of new stuff packed into this one!

The most exciting is that I have added support for Youtube videos and put in a lot more flexibility into the settings through a bunch of new parameters. For example you can now use a Lightbox style, you can set the transitions, use your own CSS, set it to close on click, show/hide the close button and so much more!

Here is a list of all the added parameters: name, textalign, width, height, autodimensions, scrolling, cookie, popup, link, url, gallery, cssclass, articleid, title, titleposition, hideonoverlayclick, hideoncontentclick, closebutton, transitionin / transitionout, speedin / speedout, overlayshow, overlayopacity, overlaycolor, video, autoplay, boxstyle

See the users guide for version 2.0 for a more detailed explanation.
