Flexheader3 expands the existing possibilities to show pictures or load css files for flexible styling of your website. Flexheader3 makes it possible to assign an image or css-file at any point in your website, it does not depend on menu entries.

The picture appears on a module position and can be outside of your content, e.g. in your template header position.

Flexheader3 Features are:

  • released under the GPL License
  • Joomla! 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5, 3.x and 4.x Native Module
  • only one module needed fort many pictures
  • can assign pictures to any page on joomla: articles, categories, components, menu entries and parent menu entries
  • outputs an image, div with background image (to overlay your logo)
  • can load a css file for styling pages, no need for different templates anymore
  • comes with german and english translation
  • displays an help window on the frontpage, there you can see the filenames you need for use with flexheader3
  • support for multilanguage
  • creates XHTML valid html code
  • can be used with responsive webdesign (if you know what you are doing)

  • 20.10.2017 Version 2.1.4
    addes the moduleid as a css class to the flexheader object. This can be used to styles various instances of flexheader in a different way (this can also be done with flexheaders "load css" option).This is for users who use more than one flexheader instance at the same time and doesnt affect regular users.
  • 20.10.2017 Version 2.1.3
    Sometimes people use flexheader in a wrong way.
    They use many flexheader modules and change the default filename in every module. They use flexheader in a way it was not intended.
    For these people, a red hint has been built into the module settings to keep them from fooling around.

    Who could have dreamt that someone would do such a thing?
