Get The Plugin

Video Player

If one video on a page is exciting, just imagine what 20 related videos will do!

Video content is quite entertaining and viewer retentive and best of all, they are available for free sharing and number in the bazillions! Insert a single video or multiple videos to create a relative and captivating playlist that could keep your visitors at the page for hours. Create the playlist simply by adding the URLs from multiple video sources, including: Youtube, Vimeo, Vevo, DailyMotion, Facebook, PornHub, xHamster and many more. Video thumbnails and titles are automatically sourced from some services.

Video Player


The video player is inserted directly into the text area by using the shortcode [ videoplayer/ ] The global configuration allows placement of the player above or below the content with the global shortcode [ videoplayer ], no ending forward slash. Easily create a playlist by adding more fields. Multiple themes are included and changed with a click, and you can create your own themes and add to the selection.

Audio Player

Audio Player

The audio player can be a playlist or single player. When a single audio URL is detected, the player is fixed to the bottom of the browser window. View the fixed player. Simply insert URLs to an MP3, RTMP, AAC or OGG stream or local file.

The audio player can be inserted within the text by using the shortcode [ audioplayer/ ]. There is the global config shortcode as [ audioplayer ] which will place the object above or above the text. This image shows the URL entries that output the above audio player. Multiple themes are included and changed with a click, and you can create your own themes and add to the selection.



Get your viewers opinions with simple polls that are inserted on-the-fly while posting an article. No need to traverse between components. The poll is created simply with a title and as many survey questions, separated by new lines. Each new poll creates a directory and 4 files. No poll data is stored in the database. To delete the poll files just requires emptying the field with the poll questions.

The poll is entered anywhere within the text by using the shortcode [ poll/ ] or the global config shortcode [ poll ]. This image shows the poll entry method. Multiple themes are included and changed with a click, and you can create your own themes and add to the selection.

Chat Room

Include a live chat room in an article for a special purpose. Generally this is used by websites with internet radio broadcast so the listeners can chat with the radio host and each other. See how it would be used in association with the radio streaming. The term local is entered in the custom text field to generate the chat files. If an external chat source like 'chatwing' or 'cbox' is prefered, just enter the URL supplied.

Slide show

The slide show can be used in an article to highlight related images with text description. This helps to boost search caching. The slide show can be loaded with article items, plain text, HTML formatted data, images,  or standard Joomla content plugin shortcode. Use it to show related articles that will link to the article.

This is plain text slide which includes HTML formatting. The text area also supports Joomla content plugin shortcodes.



Social Network Links

This can be set globally or per category, and then overridden per article, in case each publisher wishes to include their own network pages. The icons are from FontAwesome library, and there is an option to enable it if needed. Joomla's IcoMoon icon set does not include social network logos and the SASS override is quite tedious to add. Set globally with [ sociallinks ] or per post with [ sociallinks/ ].

Multiple Instances Of Facebook Feed

You may have multiple Facebook business or fan pages that are related and wish to display them on your posts. This option allows that without limit. Configure as desired in the global setting and set to display for all posts, or per category with [ facebookpage ], or per article post with [ facebookpage/ ]. Each of those shortcodes will use the setup in the global or a category's config. A master override is included which will allow insertion of different FB feeds with different attribute settings. Just insert into a post a shortcode as [ facebook page=",300,600,true,timeline,events,messages" ]. Separate each attribute with a comma. Only the page URL is required, however the attributes must be in the order as shown, except for the last 3.


Multiple Instances Of Twitter Feed

Add multiple instances of Twitter feed. The feed can be setup globally or per category, and automatically be added to every post above or below the text body. Or overridden per post and inserted within the text body with the shortcode [ twitterpage / ]. The global source can be overridden to choose any Twitter feed and config attributes desired, by inserting a master override shortcode within an article as: [ twitter page=",dark,300,600" ]. Separate each attribute with a comma.

Use the insert shortcode to place any facebook post type on the page. This includes video, photo etc.

The author of the article is always the author of the article, and when the author of the article writes the article, he will be the author of the article. Aliquam erat volutpat. Pellentesque eu quam nec quam vestibulum sodales. Curabitur suscipit metus sed lacus rhoncus ut aliquam urna tincidunt. Aliquam pellentesque convallis purus sed vulputate.
