Introduction

What does it do?

The extension “Flash banner” helps you to integrate any number of graphics and links through the backend. These will be represented with a SWF in the front-end and replaced with an administrator-selectable effect. The following settings can be set up by the administrator:

  • Dimensions of the SWF and the contained graphics
  • Transition effect
  • The time that each vision is shown.
  • Depth of automatic search for banners in the rootline

Screenshots

This is a view of the Constant Editor to configure the settings.

Users manual

The extension includes a plugin that can be embedded as a normal front-end plugin anywhere.

Administration

All necessary adjustments and configurations can be carried out conveniently through the Constant Editor. The following options are available for this:

((generated))

Width / Height

The SWF is automatically displayed in this size and in case ImageMagick is available, all images are also scaled to this size by TYPO3.

Duration

Time shows how long each individual banner graphic is visible. Allegation in milliseconds.

Transition
disguise

Desaturate the original image.Showing the new image of a round mask, animated from left to right.

fade

Transition of the new image over the existing one.

glaze

Blur the original image and zoom in.Fade into the blurry and also zoomed new image.Zoom out and remove the fuzziness.

locomotion

Slide in the new image from left to right.Simultaneous sliding out of the original image to the right.

upright

Slide in the new image from top to bottom over the original image.

vanish

Desaturate the original image and fade to to base color.Fade in the new desaturated image and restore saturation.

Base color

This value is used as bgcolor parameter for flash embedding. And it's used for some of the transitions. Flash can only handle hex values. When you set an HTML color name, it's translated internally to its hex string.

Walk up rootline

In case there are no banners lodged on the current page, the plugin can automatically search for banners on the parent pages. With this option you can specify how far the plugin should wander up and search in the rootline.

Load swfobject

The SWF is embedded on the web page with swfobject. The default extension embeds the swfobject.js on from the extension directory. If however, already another swfobject javascript-file is embedded on the website, this can lead to conflict. The automatic embedding can be disabled with this option.
