EnewsOf.com’s Latest Project – The First YouTube Background Module for Joomla 2.5 Homepage
(News4us.com) May 09, 2012
Enewsof.com, a non-profit website mainly about celebrities, announced that it has successfully posted a YouTube video background module using the Joomla 2.5 homepage, making it the first website to do so.
The website – which features such artists such as Madison Mckinley, Lady Gaga, and Victoria’s Secret supermodel Candice Swanepoel, as well as TV reality shows such as The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Bachelor Pad – produces remix videos, writes articles and press releases, and reports E-news about actors, models, supermodels, singers, and reality TV stars.
Adding a YouTube background will bring in more entertainment for visitors who visit the site as well as an interesting feature.
“EnewsOf.com has always wanted a YouTube video as its website background,” said the site’s owner.
“Recently, Enewsof.com used Matteo Bicocchi’s free jQuery.mb.YTPlayer YouTube background scripts and hired a private web developer to port Bicocchi’s YouTube scripts to Joomla 2.5 Platform.”
“The final outcome is a module called YouTube Background for Joomla 2.5 Homepage.”
Please visit Matteo Bicocchi’s blog to learn about his amazing YouTube background scripts.
It was not a simple technical task to test this YouTube background module.
Enewsof.com had to modify its homepage.php to make the YouTube Module work properly for its homepage.
The module is compatible with FireFox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Opera.
It allows users to set up any YouTube video as Joomla 2.5 homepage background and usage is straightforward.
But while the major features of the module are functioning properly, the overall technical performance of the module is still being developed further.
Also, the module is working well with Window personal computer but still needs a few more scripts to make it work properly for mobile phones, mainly the width control.
With more people using Android mobile phones and tablets, Enewsof.com has converted its website to mobile to make it easy for viewers.
Visit the website EnewsOf.com to view YouTube video as website background.
