RJ Overlay Module

Last Updated on Wednesday, 07 October 2015 19:39

RJ Overlay Module Joomla 2.5-3
RJ Overlay Module places a sticky pop-up button on your joomla site. A click on the button opens up the overlay with text or html content that you put in there. It can be anything from plain text through youtube video to social sharing services. With this button you can attract and draw visitors' attention to whatever you think is most important on your site.

You can see the free version (dark style) working in the left bottom corner of this page. Click the megafone.

2Here at the left bottom corner is the most massive working variant with a lot of text and pictures inside featuring tips for users.


Both free and commercial versions work WITHOUT any Script Libraries so they WILL NOT cause any conflicts with them.

The free version has almost transparent backlink to this site but still gives you the ability to put any html content inside. For that you get a html editor in the module backend.

The paid version has this set of additional options:

  • you can customize the button position, size, roundness and color
  • you can define the timeout after which the button will pop up
  • you can choose the overlay color, z-index and opacity
  • you can upload your own icons
  • you can change the width and opacity of the inner div, color and size of the div's border, color of the text, links and headers inside

RJ Overlay Module is Joomla! 2.5.x and 3.x compatible and works in all major modern browsers including IE.
Moreover it's mobile friendly.


  1. Download and install the RJ Overlay Module.
  2. Put any html or just plain text in the Content field.
  3. Publish the module to any existing position (debug recommended).
  4. Enjoy!

Some Tips

  • You can have only the inner div popping up by setting the overlay opacity to zero while the div's opacity - to 99.
  • You can have the teasing button not only showing at a side or corner but covering as much of the screen as you like - half of it, 1/10 of it, left side, right side or the whole screen.
  • You can use the RJ Overlay Module as a splash screen.

The commercial versions is so customizable that you can style as many copies of it in as many ways as many pages your site has. So each page can have an absolutely different button and/or overlay and/or content.
