Most Read articles with Thumbnails for Joomla! 1.5

I switch off the original module of Joomla! and made my own as I did not find anything similar in Joomla! extensions (JED)

This Module shows a list of the currently published Articles with thumbnails which have the highest number of page views.


  • Native #Joomla! 1.5 module
  • Next 5 or more most popular articles are displayed with their thumbnails
  • Support for SEF friendly URLs
  • Code produced is XHTML 1.0 Strict,
  • Tested in the following browser Firefox, Opera, Chrome, IE 8
  • Approved at #Joomla Extension JED (Soon),
  • GPL v3.0,
  • CSS driven output customizable to your likings,
  • PHP5 object oriented with enough comments for you to be able to understand the code 🙂
  • Non commercial.


  • Thumbnails resizing require PHP GD2 library for manipulating images. Any serious hosting company should have this option. Ask your Hosting support company!


  • Are created from the first images found in your introtext,
  • For articles without images or when none are found you can provide a path to a default image
  • Are saved in Joomla! /cache directory and are created only once for an article as it is required addtional CPU
  • Currently the oldest thumbnails get removed 5 by 5 when you will have more then 5000 thumbnails in /cache.
