  • Ipod, iPhone, iPad Add to Home Screen for Joomla! CMS version 1.6.1

    The new version introduce

    • A better administrator panel
    • The same codebase for Joomla! 1.5 and 1.7
    • A lot of new features, see below

    add2home_joomla_extension_apple_ipad_iphone

    Custom Startup images

    Specifying a startup image is available in iOS 3.0 and later. On iOS, similar to native applications, you can specify a startup image that is displayed while your website application launches. This is especially useful when your web application is offline. By default, a screenshot of the web application the last time it was launched is used.

    Custom Messages

    It is possible to override the default message to invite user to add your site to their home screen. In order to be able to support all your visitor locales, you'll have to edit manually the file /media/plg_system_add2home/add2home.js

    Viewport

    Use the viewport meta key to improve the presentation of your web content on iOS. Typically, you use the viewport meta tag to set the width and initial scale of the viewport.
    For example, if your webpage is narrower than 980 pixels, then you should set the width of the viewport to fit your web content. If you are designing an Safari on iOS-specific web application, you should set the width to the width of the device.
    “email” describes the properties supported by the viewport meta key and their default values. When providing multiple properties for the viewport meta key, you should use a comma-delimited list of assignment statements.
    When referring to the dimensions of a device, you should use the constants described in “number” instead of hard-coding specific numeric values. For example, use device-width instead of 320 for the width, and device-height instead of 480 for the height in portrait orientation.
