I'm looking for a Joomla 3 extension that requests new visitors to create an account in my site with a Popup. I'd like to offer an e-book in exchange, so the popup should have an area to show how the e-book looks like and another area to register (or login, if the user already has an account). If possible, this extension should also allow users to register/login using FB or Google.

I've seen many extensions but none that does exactly this.

Can someone please advise?

For this I'll combine two extensions: form builder and a tools to display a module in a modal

Start with the form builder like:

  • Chronoform
  • RS form
  • or your preferred form tools.

See list of form extension : http://extensions.joomla.org/tags/forms

With the form you can collect the user data and send the e-book Only one condition, this tools should provide you a module to display the form

Use an other extension to display the module in a modal http://extensions.joomla.org/extension/mod-modal-box

  • Thank you, that seems to be a good idea. But, is the forum capable of registering the user (as in the core register form)? – Nuno Nogueira Mar 18 '16 at 12:09
  • yes, chronoform and RS form provide full Joomla registration – Pierre-André Vullioud Mar 18 '16 at 19:01
