Regular update to all Venus and extensions!

On September 5, 2010, in Product News, by admin

Today we release a bunch of updates to all Venus and extensions. They are small changes but very useful, and we think it can help reduce significantly loading time.

Technically speaking, it contains:

- Remove pre-loading CSS function. This has caused a dramatically slow VENUS loading time in IE browser. And we would like to send a thank to Luis Tark [luis(at)], who has sent us a notification about this.

- Change the way of CSS loading in all extensions. Instead of using javascript, they are now loaded through Joomla API. Reducing javascript handling means improve loading performance.

- Add a “Color chooser” element to module configuration. Now if you need to set a color, choose it from visual panel.

So, the newest versions now are:

Venus 1.5.2; Venus 2.5.3/3.5.3
Dropdown Menu 2.5.3
Content Tab 2.5.2
Content Slider 2.5.2
Photo Gallery 2.5.2
Headline Roller 2.5.2
Image Slider module 1.5.3 & 2.5.3/3.5.3
Current customers can download from your Client Area. All free versions can be downloaded at our Download Reposity.

    You should turn off Error Notice reporting by editing php.ini file. If you don’t want to change your server settings, please add this line to the second line (after “

    error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE)

    My headline roller still shows un published news articles.
    Do you have any tutorials on configuring headline roller.

      If you use “Item List” parameter in Headline Roller, it will list all the items specified, including all published articles. If you use “Item count” and delete “Item List” value, it only displays published articles in category.
