  • Facebook Fan Page

    JoomlaLogo ORIGINAL

    Facebook Fan Page FINAL Release!

    With this FINAL release, you must have a pre-existing AND pre-approved Facebook App ID and Access Token. Until further notice Facebook is not approving any new or pre-existing Apps;

    Facebook API Issue

    This has nothing to do with the functionality of Facebook Fan Page as it is currently coded (as evident to the demo below) and everything to do with Facebook not wanting you to display PUBLIC access Facebook fan pages because they can't force their ad revenue (Sponsors) into this extension feed! Facebook Fan Page was never designed to do anything but allow you to render a PUBLIC fan page feed onto your Joomla! site. Nothing more! With the ever changing Facebook API landscape and the poor decisions they allowed themselves to make, hearing Mark Z say 'I'm sorry' just does not cut it!

    Please, if your Facebook Fan Page 'App ID' and 'Access Token' is working, GREAT! You can continue to use this extension worry free. Everyone else wishing to use Facebook Fan Page within their Joomla! website, it just can't happen under the current Facebook API restrictions.

     


    ApprovalTo see if your Facebook 'App ID' or 'Access Token' will work with Facebook Fan Page, look at your registered Apps. If both entries are not GREEN, that registered App will not work until approved by Facebook. Since Facebook is not approving Apps at this time, you're stuck! This is a Facebook policy and has noting to do with the Facebook Fan Page extension or it's code.

    When Facebook Fan Page was introduced to the Joomla! community it met and/or exceeded every API requirement set by Facebook. Over the course of time Facebook has put restrictions upon restructions into their API's making it almost impossable for YOU to share YOUR Facebook data on YOUR website.

    /modules/mod_gcalendarfeed/js/cultures
    Once uploaded, copy this filename (DO NOT COPY THE .js EXTENSION NAME) and replace the default English filename in the Language Pack module option. Whenever you make changes to the default module settings make 100% sure to SAVE these settings. The Language Pack assists Google Calendar Feed Scroller by adjusting the 'Date & Time' stamp language to the Language Pack you are using. This feature is considered beta but our tests show that it works!

  • InstAholic Lite

    JED Logo

    InstAholic Lite v3.0.7 upgrade is now available and still FREE!

    With this upgrade InstAholic Lite can once again offer 'Squared resolution' image sizing dispite Instagram's latest API that took it away. Isn't code great!

    With the increasing popularity of Instagram and now that their latest API has settled in, I'm bringing back InstAholic Lite. It's based on the jQuery script written byMichael Lynch and I've added a number of extra goodies.With the change in the new Instagram API you can no longer display images from hash tags or key search words (as was allowed in the past). Just a single Username feed based on the Access Token (required) you provide.

    Using InstAholic Lite is as easy as downloading and installing into your Joomla website. Once installed go to the module's General Settings tab and enter your Instagram Access Token (instructions) into the option box. At this point you'll want to assign this module to a FULL WIDTH module position or use the Joomla native 'loadposition' tag inside a content page. Make sure to publish and assign this module to a working module position & menu... DONE! Instant Instagram gallery within your Joomla website. Now you'll want to go back to the InstAholic Lite module settings and fine tune the available module options to meet your needs.

    *PLEASE NOTE: Instagram Lite allows you to show a total limit of 20 images based on the Instagram (Facebook) API restrictions.
    *COMPATIBILITY: InstAholic Lite works with all 'MODERN, MOST CURRENT VERSION' web browsers. Until Microsoft's IE10+ or their Edge browser undergoes an upgrade to fully support HTML5 and CSS3, I do not consider these browsers as, MODERN! As such InstAholic Lite may not display properly using these outdated browsers.

There is so much being offered under the hood that regardless of your website design, InstAholic PLUS will fit in nicely. It's using the Masonry display engine that makes it crazy responsive without asking you to lift a finger! It will always look great regardless of what device you are viewing from... 24/7! Getting InstAholic PLUS up and running is as easy as obtaining the correct access code from your Instagram account (Click onto the link "Click for instructions on obtaining your Instagram Access Tokenram Access Token" below and follow the outlined instructions) and paste your Instagram Access Token into the module's option box. You'll want to choose a Module Position that your template supports, assign this module to an active menu, save your settings and you off and running... easy peasy!

      Don't forget to download and read through the PDF Documentations. It will guide you through all the different module settings and options as well as give you a number of Tips & Tricks to make your InstAholic PLUS as unique as your website. InstAholic PLUS is 100% free to download and use across as many Joomla! websites you have. No upsell, no trackbacks, no site registration... just 100% free! However, there is a catch. If you find InstAholic PLUS an amazing addition to your Joomla! website, pass along your personal review and rating. It's the only payment I accept!

      Click for instructions on obtaining your Instagram Access Token

      Scroll down this page to see a working demo displaying my personal Instagram feed. As you continue to scroll down through the images, new images will appear until you get to my very first Instagram post. Yes, InstAholic PLUS can do this because my account was approved by Instagram to be in the 'Live mode'. If you are in the default Instagram 'Sandbox mode', your Instagram feed limit will be 20 of your latest posts. Please, I did not make these rules! If Instagram does not approve your API feed to be in the 'Live mode', take your frustrations out on them... not me, this extension or in your Joomla! review & rating!


      PLEASE NOTE: You can only have ONE (1) published InstAholic Plus install per individual Joomla! page. In addition, it is strongly advised to position InstAholic Plus towards the bottom of your Joomla! page. Especially if you have a lot of Instagram posts. As stated above, as you scroll down the page, InstAholic Plus displays more of your Instagram posts.

    • Joomla Bamboo's Build.r Template Package

      For the past week or so I've had the incredible opportunity to test-drive Joomla Bamboo's latest template package called Build.r. I'm calling this a template package because with Build.r you are not getting just a single theme with only a few color variations or design layouts that we have come to expect from our Joomla theme providers... You are getting a complete Joomla 'building block' template package loaded with features, options and variety!

      For starters, Build.r comes prepackaged with not one, two or three different template designs but seven totally different, totally unique and totally creative design layouts. All offering their own separate design features giving you all the Joomla template building blocks you'll ever need or want to create your client's one of a kind website. Gone will be the days when your Joomla installation had multiple installed templates because one layout just did not meet your specific needs. With Joomla Bamboo's Build.r template package you can mix and match any or all of the seven different prepackaged themes. Oh, need I mention that by using Build.r as your base template, switching between the different prepackaged themes is as easy as clicking a few buttons. The best part is, no module positions to change since Build.r is built on Joomla Bamboo's latest Zen Grid Framework v4 and with this, all of your modules can share positions between the different prepackages themes. What a time saver this alone will be!

      If you have been around the Joomla Bamboo family of templates the names of the seven different template designs will sound familiar; Base4, Koan, Responsive, Revision, Standard, Xero and Zenbase. All or these excellent themes have been offered as individual templates by Joomla Bamboo and now they all live in a single package called Build.r. If you are into music but hate buying an artists latest CD just for one or two songs generally you'll wait for their greatest hits release. Build.r is (in my option), Joomla Bamboo's 'Greatest Hits' template package!

      If you needed or wanted all of these individual themes installed into a single Joomla installation you would be adding megabytes upon megabytes of data to your website. Because all these themes are prepackages and share a great deal of common code, the overhead becomes a much smaller data footprint. And as mentioned above, the time you save from not having to reassign all your module positions is a major advantage.

      Probably the biggest news about Joomla Bamboo's Build.r theme package will be the release of their latest Zen Grid Framework v4. I'm not going to spend a great deal of time detailing what is new under the hood (I'll leave that to the experts...) other then to say, WOW! The many changes and ease of use you'll experience are quite impressive. The biggest change and improvement is the framework's Layout tab. Every conceivable layout feature and option has been well planned out with the end-user in mind. When you bring together an impressive newly coded framework with seven unique theme designs all in one package, Joomla Bamboo's Build.r will set new Joomla template standards. But, that should not come to a surprise. Joomla Bamboo has been setting Joomla template standards for many years past and now into the future.

      Once Build.r is officially released, take a hard look at what you'll be getting. Seven totally unique templates wrapped into one tight package. With other template providers you would have to wait seven long months to get what Build.r will give you in one single release. Impressive!

    • Responsive Photo Gallery

      ResponsivePhotoGalleryv2.9.9 Joomla 3.x NEWEST RELEASE!

      Responsive Photo Gallery for Joomla 2.5 & 3.x. Create stunning eye catching photo galleries in a simple and easy 'responsive' way. Responsive Photo Gallery will self adjust to whatever browser or screen size your viewing from. When viewing from a smartphone or a touch pad, you'll love it's finger swipe navigation ability on both the carousel and the main photo. There are only a few module options to set because the power is in the code! Responsive Photo Gallery uses the power of the jQuery Library Script* (version 1.7.x or newer), a few supporting jQuery scripts and some basic code as its backbone.

      Responsive Photo Gallery has been tested to be compatible with IE8+, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Smartphone and Touch Pad browsers.

      PLEASE NOTE: The Flickr render feed currently does not function when using a 'localhost' client like XAMP, WAMPP, MAMP, etc. Move it to your website host server and all will be good.

      Change log:

      UPGRADE:  v2.9.9 (for Joomla 3.x only ) Updated Firefox CSS code to be compatible with recent upgrades.

      v2.9.8 (for Joomla 3.x only ) Added new theme called, Frameless. Now you can show RPG without any frames around the main image and thumbnail container. Also added an option to show or hide the the play/pause icons.

      v2.9.7 (for Joomla 3.x only ) Added option to override some abrasive template frameworks. If your thumbnails are 'stacked' on the far left side, set the new option 'Activate template override' to Yes.

      v2.9.6 (for Joomla 3.x only ) Fixed issue with Flickr photo descriptions when used.

      v2.9.5 (for Joomla 3.x only ) Fixed issue with some 'all caps' file extensions not showing in Joomla Folder Plus.

      v2.9.4 (for Joomla 3.x only ) Patched this release to fix a small bug. If you are using this release, please re-download/install. Thanks @DrummerCafe and sorry!

      v2.9.4 (for Joomla 3.x only ) Fix CSS issues with newer versions of the Firefox browser.

      v2.9.3 (for Joomla 3.x only ) Fix the thumbnail ratio sizing issue for Joomla Folder Plus & Joomla Picture Gallery options.

      v2.9.2 (for Joomla 3.x only ) Bug fixes in the Flickr, Picasa & Picture Gallery options. Please upgrade... SORRY!

      v2.9.1 (for Joomla 3.x only ) Now you can create a CUSTOM STYLE for Responsive Photo Gallery or continue to choose either the Dark or Light pre-set styles. Choose to display thumbnails above or below your main photo container totally independent of one another or choose not to display the thumbnails at all.
      PLEASE NOTE: If you are upgrading from an older Joomla 3.x version, some of your existing settings will have to be re-assigned manually. With this release the old Joomla folder feature has been replaced with Joomla Folder Plus introduced in v2.9.0. This is one setting you will need to re-assign if you are currently using the old Joomla Folder to get your photos from.

      v2.9.0 (for Joomla 3.x only ) added a new module option called Joomla Folder Plus. This option will allow you to pull your photos from a Joomla images folder and gives you the ability to add a custom title & description for each photo. In addition you can re-edit a photos title & description, delete the photo, set a custom thumbnail height/width pixel ratio and SORT any and all of your photos via 'drag & drop'.

      v2.8.2 to the newest Flickr API requirements.

      v2.8.1 to fix a script conflict with the Fancybox lightbox feature. If you use another extension that uses the Fancybox lightbox effect, you will want to upgrade to this version.

      v2.8.0 added a custom 'Build your Own' gallery that supports up to 30 photos. Also added the ability to render photos from Picasa Albums (Google+). Version 2.8.0 is a major upgrade release... please upgrade!

      v2.7.0 added Fancybox2 lightbox effect for the main photo. Added a max-width/max-height main photo feature. All new and greatly improved 'Auto Play' code. Added a 'Play' & 'Pause' icon when using the 'Auto Play' feature. Version 2.7.0 is a major upgrade release... please upgrade!

      * With Joomla 3.x there is no longer a need to worry about loading jQuery... It's built into the framework!

      RPG - FAQs

      • RPG Requirements

        RPG Requirements


        Install this module using the native Joomla installation and adjust the module options to your needs. Select a module position, assign to your menus and publish. This module is driven by the jQuery Library script (version 1.7.x or newer) and demands that the script be loaded to function. I have provided a Load jQuery option (default set to 'No') that you may or may not need to set based on your Joomla site's configuration or installed extensions.

        SUPPORTED BROWSERS: IE8* +, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Smartphones and Touch Pad browsers.

        * IE8 is not a responsive supported browser. However, Responsive Photo Gallery will work within any Joomla 2.5.x installation within the guidelines mentioned above.

      • RPG Instructions

        Before diving into using this module, there are a few basic 'Pre-Launch' instructions you'll need to do. If your going to use the 'Render Photos from a Joomla folder' feature, create a new folder inside your Joomla's 'images' directory and FTP upload your photos into this newly created folder. You can also upload your photos using the native Joomla 'Media Manager' one photo at a time. Go to your Responsive Photo Gallery module and adjust the options to your needs within the 'General Settings' and 'Render Photos from a Joomla folder' tabs. If your going to pull your photos from a Flickr Photoset, adjust the module options within the 'General Settings' and 'Render Photos from a Flickr Photoset' tabs. Once completed select what module position you want to use, publish, select what menus you wish to associate Responsive Photo Gallery to, save and... DONE!

        General Settings for Joomla 3.x version:
        Render Photos from: Choose to pull your photos from Joomla Folder Plus, Flickr Photoset, Picasa or Custom Picture Gallery via 30 URLs.
        Display thumbnails: Select 'Yes/No'. Default setting is 'Yes'.
        Thumbnail position: Select 'Above/Below' main image container. Default setting is 'Above'
        Theme: Use this drop-down to select either a Dark, Light or Custom (built your own) theme.
        Top Margin: This was added to fix an issue when using RPG with the Joomla 'loadposition' tag. Increasing this pixel value will push RPG downward.
        Theme: Use this drop-down to select either a Dark, Light or Custom (built your own) theme.
        Lightbox effect: Select 'Yes/No'. Default setting is 'Yes'.
        Load Lightbox script?: Select 'Yes/No' to load the Fancybox lightbox script. Set to 'No' if you are using another Fancybox extension on the same page as Responsive Photo Gallery.
        Auto Play Gallery?: Select 'Yes/No' to auto scroll through your photos.
        Auto Play Speed: Set the scroll delay in milliseconds if Auto Play Gallery is set to 'Yes'.
        Main image max height: (Default is 100%) Set a fixed pixel or percentage value to limit the max-height your photos will be. This setting is very helpful if your gallery has both landscape or portrait photos.
        Main image max width: (Default is 100%) Set a fixed pixel or percentage value to limit the max-width your photos will be. This setting is very helpful if your gallery has both landscape or portrait photos.

        General Settings for Joomla 2.5 version (settings/options below show only within 2.5):
        Load jQuery? By default I have this option set to No. If you do not have another application calling up the jQuery Library, change this setting to Yes.
        Render Photos from: Choose to pull your photos from a standard Joomla images folder, Flickr Photoset, Picasa or Custom Picture Gallery via 30 URLs.
        Gallery Number: If you are going to have two or more galleries on a single page, you MUST assign each one with a unique Gallery Number (Ranges 1 to 50).
        Theme: Use this drop-down to select either a dark or light theme only.
        Carousel Position: Select to have your Carousel thumbnails above or below your main photo. Please note: If you are going to have two or more galleries on a single page, all must use the same Carousel Position.

        Render Photos from a Joomla folder options (Joomla 2.5 only):
        Photo directory: Use this drop-down to select the folder where your photos are kept.
        Show titles: Display photo titles, 'Yes/No'
        Thumbnail Width: Set the width of your carousel thumbnails in pixels.
        Thumbnail Height: Set the height of your carousel thumbnails in pixels.
        Keep thumbnail ratio: If you select No (default), all thumbnails will be the same size based on the width/height settings above. If you select Yes, your thumbnails will automatically adjust to the size and orientation of your original photo (based on the width/height settings above).

        Render Photos from the Joomla Folder Plus options (Joomla 3.x only):
        Resize images? Default is set to 'Active' and can not be changed.
        Thumbnail height/width ratio: Default is 48px. Can be set to any size but remember... they are thumbnails so don't get too carried away with the size settings!
        Image path folder: From this drop-down you can select the Joomla images folder for your gallery.
        Photo Edit Icon: Click onto the edit icon and add or edit your photo's Title & Description.
        Photo Delete Icon: Click onto this delete icon to remove any unwanted photos within this Joomla folder.
        SORTING via 'Drag & Drop': To custom sort your photo, mouse over a photo and click and hold down your mouse button. Drag this photo to it's new location and release your mouse button. Once completed with all editing, please don't forget to SAVE your new module settings.
        Housekeeping: When you add photo titles and save, the titles will show below each photo within this module option. I call this 'housekeeping' because sometimes you just want to sort your photos by a given title and not your server sorting by filename.

        Render Photos from a Flickr Photoset options:
        Flickr API: Enter in your own personal Flickr API here.
        Use Flickr Cache: Select 'Yes' or 'No' (*)
        Flickr Photoset ID#: Enter your 17 digit Flickr Photoset ID# here.
        Flickr Thumbnail Size: Select what size Flickr thumbnail you wish to show in the carousel.
        Main Photo Caption: Select from the drop-down what information you would like to show under your main photo. Choices: Flickr Title Only, Flickr Description Only, Title - Description and None.

        (*) Pulling photos from a Flickr Photoset takes time. Using the Flickr Cache feature will dramatically speed-up the page load time after viewing your gallery once. I have the 'cache time-out' set very high within the code. The cache name will auto-generate based on the module name you assign RPG.

        Render Photos from the 'Joomla Picture Gallery' options:
        With this new feature you will be able to 'Custom Build' a gallery for up to 30 photos. Each photo has it's own set of options that will allow you to totally customize your gallery. Select a photo to show from Joomla's Media Manager, type in a title or any text (supports basic HTML tags) and set the size of your thumbnails (optional). DONE!

        Render Photos from Google+:
        Enter your Google+ User Name/Number
        Enter the Google+ Album Number you wish to display
        Enter the Google+ Album Title (optional)
        Select the Main Photo Size to show in the RPG's main display and lightbox
        Select how your thumbnails will show (Full or Cropped)
        Choose what photo information you wish to display (data is stored with each photo on Google+)
        Extra global data is optional and will display whatever you type with every photo you render. Great way to add a copyright statement!
        NOTE: If you want to show pictures from your Google Photo account, read my step-by-step BLOG.

        DONE!

        Basic Rules for Joomla 2.5 only:
        In order for Responsive Photo Gallery to function, the latest jQuery Library (v1.7.x) MUST be loaded between the <head> tag of your Joomla site (Joomla 2.5 only).
        If you are going to use two or more Responsive Photo Galleries on a single page, you MUST assign each with a unique 'Gallery Number' (Ranges 1 to 50 are valid).
        If you are going to use two or more Responsive Photo Galleries on a single page, they all MUST use the same 'Carousel Position' (Above or Below).

      • RPG Flickr Private Photosets

        Obtaining and setting-up a Flickr API to view a Private Flickr Photoset:

        1) Apply for a Flickr API & Secret Code (https://www.flickr.com/services/apps/create/apply/).

        2) Once approved, click onto The App Garden link (bottom of Flickr page) and select, Apps By You (right hand side of page under the Your Apps heading).

        3) Here you will see all of the Flickr API's that are currently active within your Flickr account. Find the API you just registered and copy KEY (Flickr API) and SECRET (Flickr Secret Code) data showing for that API listing. You will want to paste this data into the Responsive Photo Gallery module options within the 'Render Photos from a Flickr Photoset' tab.

        4) Now, click onto this approved API link title. On the right hand side under the heading of Admin, click onto 'Edit'. In the 'Callback URL' box paste this URL (https://phpflickr.com/tools/auth/auth.php) and SAVE CHANGES.

        5) At this point you are ready to obtain your 'Flickr Token Code'. In your internet browser go to this URL (https://phpflickr.com/tools/auth/auth.php) and enter in your apps API and Secret data. Select the ENTER or SUBMIT button and you will be taken to the Flickr login screen. Log in with your Flickr creditionals and Flickr will produce a white screen with the following information;

        This is the code you should use to generate your phpFlickr instance:
        $f = new phpFlickr('xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx', 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx');
        $f->setToken('xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx');
        This code will log your website in as the Flickr user 'XXXXXXX' with 'read' permissions

        I have replace the actual data above with 'xxxxx'. Now, copy the setToken data (do not copy the ' ' symbols). and paste this data into the Responsive Photo Gallery's 'Flickr Token Code' and SAVE your module settings.

        6) Finally, we need to set your Flickr Photoset permissions. Get to 'Your Photostream' in your Flickr account and locate the Photoset you wish to change the permissions and click onto the 'edit set' link. You will see all of the photos within the Photoset and some menu options at the top. Click onto the 'Batch edit' menu drop-down and select the 'Change permissions' option. A popup box will show where you can adjust the global permission options of this Photoset. Click onto the 'Only You (Private) radio button and then the CHANGE PERMISSIONS button. Flickr will apply these settings and when finished click onto the THANKS! button.

        At this point your done! If everything went as planned, you will be able to display your private Photoset within Responsive Photo Gallery on your Joomla website. If anything went wrong during this process, Responsive Photo Gallery will throw out an error when you attenpt to view your gallery.

        PLEASE UNDERSTAND... I added this option to Responsive Photo Gallery because a user requested it and the Flickr code being using for Responsive Photo Gallery supports this feature. However, I strongly recommend that if you do not have a Flickr PRO account or your not 100% sure how all this applys or works for you, STAY AWAY from this feature! This feature works and has been tested over and over again. I have ironed-out all of the naggy little bugs that surfaced when writting this code to obtain all of this required data. I will support Responsive Photo Gallery when pulling photos from a Joomla folder and a Flickr public Photoset. But... I need to draw a line in the sand where support ends and doing your own homework begins!

      • RPG FAQs

        Coming soon... 

      • RPG Tips, Tricks and other Cool Stuff!

        Responsive Photo Gallery supports many of the most common photo/image extensions (.jpg, .jpeg, .png, .bmp, .gif, vnd.wap.wbmp and .xbm).

        Responsive Photo Gallery auto generates all of the Carousel thumbnails and places them into a newly created sub-folder called 'thumbs'.

        When pulling photos from the Joomla Folder Plus feature, Responsive Photo Gallery gets the title & description text you want under the main photo directly from this feature. Each photo you see from the assigned folder has an 'edit' icon where you can add your photo's title & brief description. The option fields within the 'edit' window do not support basic HTML tags. TIP: You can continue to add new photos into an existing folder you are using at anytime. You will need to refresh your browser for these added photos to be seen. Please make sure you SAVE the module after adding new photos or adjusting any setting option. I strongly do not suggest using the cache function (Advanced Options) within the module options unless you are sure you are not going to add additional photos into a specific folder.

        When pulling photos from a Flickr Photoset, Responsive Photo Gallery gets the title & description text you see under the main photo directly from Flickr. You can choose one of three options from the drop-down. If you plan on using Flickr to render your Photoset photos, I strongly recommend that you populate both the 'photo title' and 'description' fields within your Photoset. This will give you full access to display whatever caption you choose from the drop-down options. In addition, it is strongly suggested you use the Flickr Cache option!

        If you plan on using Responsive Photo Gallery in your content pages (using the native Joomla 'loadposition' tag), there is a known issue with some templates and content arrangements. With v2.2.0 I added a module option called 'Top Margin' that you can populate using a pixel value. Entering a pixel value here will 'push down' the Responsive Photo Gallery container. This option may or may not be needed again based on your specific template or content arrangement. A quick work-around to resolve this issue is to add either additional <br /> or <p> </p> data above your loadposition tag using your text editor's source or HTML code option.

        Another problem specific to loadposition may cause Responsive Photo Gallery to fill your entire monotor and beyond. This issue is more of a template problem then extension issue but there is a solution (thanks to Lucinde). Use the following string of code as part of your loadposition tag;

        <div style="width: XXXpx; margin-bottom: xxpx;"></div>

        The width value will be the actual width size of your content area. The margin value will put a little 'white space' between the bottom of RPG and any data you have below it. As with any workaround there is an upside and downside. The upside is RPG will now sit in your content area based on the width value you give it. The downside is with portable devices and responsive templates! Since you have pre-selected a specific width value, some portable devises may have issues with this and not render your page as it should. You'll have to test these pros & cons based on your specific needs & wants!

    • Social Payment

      SocialPayment 450px

      Social Payment is one of those Joomla! 2.5 & 3.x extensions that bridges the gap between 'pay to see' or 'register to see' what you are promoting. With Social Payment your visitors will have access to your assigned link or URL as long as they post a social media message that you have pre-populated within the module settings. Once they post your message to either Twitter, Google+ or Facebook they will get access to the click-through link.

      Social Payment can be used as a way to gain access to a download, read more article or any special item you wish to promote. There is no need for your visitors to pre-register or make a payment to gain access. All they need to do is send out a social media message that you created within the module settings. This now becomes a win-win exchange. Your visitors get what you are promoting and you get the social media exposure!

      The module settings allow you to have all three social media outlets available to choose from or you can limit the selection to just one or two. Social Payment does not have a lot of options to pre-program. Just some basic requirements to fill-in and you are up and running! Social Payment is easy to use and a quick and effective way to promote your products.

      'CLICK HERE' for the download ZIP package (don't forget to un-zip this package. It contains both the Joomla 2.5 and 3.x releases) or follow the demo below.
