mfFilmed: Add a filmstrip around images with this Joomla 1.0.x mambot

Logo Joomla! is my favorite CMS. I created a mambot that allows you to easily add a filmstrip around your images. It's called mfFilmed and you can use it free of charge.

Use this mambot to give some extra eye-candy to your images. It is very simple to use and uses unobtrusive javascript. Many advanced options are included.

You don't need Photoshop or any other advanced and expensive programs to make beautiful filmstrips. Use mfFilmed and you're ready to go. Additionally, the original image will be kept intact.

{mffilmed beach.jpg|Beautiful beach||CCCCCC|50}


  1. Log in to your back-end of the site
  2. Go to "Installers", "Mambots"
  3. Click on "Browse" and navigate to the downloaded ZIP archive
  4. Press "Upload File & Install"
  5. Go to "Mambots", "Site Mambots"
  6. Search for mfFilmed and publish it
  7. Download filmed.js
  8. UnZIP the archive and only get filmed.js. Upload it to the following folder on your FTP:


    Don't forget to read the license of filmed.js.

How to use


Use the following syntax to enable mfFilmed on your images:
{mffilmed imgpath/img_name}

The base image path is always: images/stories. For example, if you have an image in your images/stories folder, your syntax will be: {mffilmed img_name}

If you have an image in your images/stories/subfolder folder, your syntax will be: {mffilmed subfolder/img_name}

When the user hasn't enabled JavaScript or the browser doesn't support this script, a non-formatted image will be displayed.

Advanced Configuration

mfFilmed has a couple of parameters you can set. Seperate the parameters with the | symbol.

  1. The image location and name. This one has to be used, or else the script will not work.
    Example: {mffilmed imgpath/img_name}
  2. ALT attribute for the image, making it W3C valid. If left empty, no ALT attribute will be used.
    Example: {mffilmed imgpath/img_name|Logo}
  3. Float the image to the left or to the right.
    Example: {mffilmed imgpath/img_name|Logo|right}
  4. Set the color of the frame as a hex value. Min is 000000, max is ffffff. Default is 000000.
    Example: {mffilmed imgpath/img_name|Logo|right|CCCCCC}
  5. Set the opacity of the strip in percent. Min is 0, max is 100. Default is 100.
    Example: {mffilmed imgpath/img_name|Logo|right|CCCCCC|50}
  6. To remove the shadow, add "noshadow".
    Example: {mffilmed imgpath/img_name|Logo|right|CCCCCC|50|noshadow}

Now I would have a filmed image with an ALT attribute called "Logo", floating on the right, with a grey (CCCCCC) strip that has an opacity of 50% with no shadow.

Only the first parameter must be filled. All others are optional. If you don't want to use the parameter, leave it empty. For example, if you want all default settings, but no shadow, use the following syntax:
{mffilmed imgpath/img_name|||||noshadow}
