mfGlossy: Add a Web 2.0 gloss on 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 Web 2.0 gloss on your images. It's called mfGlossy 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 a beautiful Web 2.0 gloss. Use mfGlossy and you're ready to go. Additionally, the original image will be kept intact.

  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 mfGlossy and publish it
  7. Download glossy.js
  8. UnZIP the archive and only get glossy.js. Upload it to the following folder on your FTP:


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

How to use


Use the following syntax to enable mfGlossy on your images:
{mfglossy 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: {mfglossy img_name}

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

mfGlossy 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: {mfglossy imgpath/img_name}
  2. ALT attribute for the image, making it W3C valid. If left empty, no ALT attribute will be used.
    Example: {mfglossy imgpath/img_name|Logo}
  3. Float the image to the left or to the right.
    Example: {mfglossy imgpath/img_name|Logo|right}
  4. Radius of the gloss in pixels. Minimal use is 20, maximum is 50. Default is 25.
    Example: {mfglossy imgpath/img_name|Logo|right|40}
  5. Noshadow removes the shadow from the glossy image. Default is false.
    Example: {mfglossy imgpath/img_name|Logo|right|40|noshadow}

Now I would have a glossy image with an ALT attribute called "Logo", floating on the right with a glossy radius of 40 and 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 not a shadow, use the following syntax:
{mfglossy imgpath/img_name||||noshadow}
