JoomlaXTC Splash Panel V3.0

 

The JoomlaXTC Splash Panel is a versatile module for displaying Front Page Presentations, Company Location Maps, Stunning Product Displays, Tooltips, Panoramic Displays, Slideshow, 3 Dimensional Showcases and just about anything you can dream up.   Using unlimited layers of Images, Html and FX, the limits of use are really all up to your imagination!

 

Uploading the package element:


The Splash Panel is a Joomla 1.5 module and is installed like all Joomla Modules via the Extensions Install area of your Joomla Administrator.

You will also need to create an image folder for your image elements in the main images/ folder of your joomla install.  This folder should be named splashassets for the module to read your files.

 

How it works:


The splash panel is based on 5 base elements:


Background

 

3-Background Elements


Title Element


52 Image Elements + Html + Audio + Tooltip + Pop Up effects


Foreground Image


You can layer these positions with css based z-index settings for eye catching showcases and add audio clips + Pop Up or Tool Tip Effects to each Element.  Each Tool Tip/Pop Up can have it's own custom background or you can use the Tool Tip Effect as a Hover Image without any text or description.  The Effects can layered in-between the Elements allowing for 3 levels of display for each element to give your presentation a 3D look and feel.

 

The Elements:


The Background can display a image of your choice jpg, png, gif.   (Optional)

 

The 3 Background Images use javascript effects for smooth fades, horizontal slides, vertical slides, or panoramic image to add motion to your background.

 

The Title Element can be used as a title or as another element position.

 

Elements 1-52 can display any type of image or HTML or both with the HTML layer ontop of the image.  A Mp3 clip can be assigned to each element and can be set to play a clip or the whole mp3 on mouse over.  Each element  can be linked to sub pages and has options for Tool Tip and Pop Up Effects .

 

The Foreground Image can be used as a screen to cover parts of your design for animation effects and much more.

 

Here is a quick example of the layers from our Dub Template:

Notes:

If you are using the latest version of Splash Panel and the Configuration is not saving this could be due to your servers RAM. Please check with your hosting company about this.

If you can not up your RAM on your server, you can resolve this issue by removing some of the element params in the template XML. There are currently 52 element positions in the Splash Panel - Removing some of them will help.

Make a backup of your mod_jxtc_splash.xml file first next open it

On or around line 732 of the mod_jxtc_splash.xml find

<param name="@spacer" type="spacer" default="Position Twenty" label="" description="" />

starting there remove everything until

<param name="moduleclass_sfx" type="text" default="" label="Module Class Suffix" description="PARAMMODULECLASSSUFFIX" />

This will limit you to 19 elements but should solve the issue. We are working on a advanced component / module version of Splash Panel that will make it compatible with all severs and hosting and make it much easier to edit.
