iDemo Displays All of Your Live Demos in a Demo Frame
iDemo, is a Joomla! 3.x component. This extension makes you able to have a full functional demo frame on your website. There are various information which can be presented by iDemo in your website’s front-end such as demo name, image, description, demo link, purchase link, version and creation date. Using iDemo is too easy and does not need any coding knowledge.
What is New?
Also, iDemov1.2 (the current version) has the ability to show a specific demo instead of the latest demo i.e. the default demo, by adding a query string. To use this feature, you can add a “siteid” query to the end of the demo site URL e.g. if your demo site is www.your-site.com/demo and you have 5 demos on it, the latest demo added will be shown as default but if you would like to show the (e.g.) second demo (with ID 2), you can write www.your-site.com/demo?siteid=2 and this way the demo with ID 2 will be show instead of the latest one. To find the demo IDs, after log into the Joomla! administrator panel, go to “Components > idemo”. You will easily find the demo IDs at the right column of the table.

Special Thanks to Michael Pignataro ( corephp.com ) for adding this feature to iDemo

Version 1.1 on Apr 8, 2014
Fixing the problem with height of the frame which was cause of not showing the entire demo page.
Version 1.2 on May 11, 2014
The ability recognizing the query strings added to the application to show a specific demo istead of the latest one which is shown as default. With iDemo v1.2 you can use query strings to show a specific demo instead of the latest demo which is shown as default. The query is "siteid" and the value will be an integer pointing to the demo ID. You can find the demo ID at this path: Components > idemo. The way you can deal with this feature is adding a query string to the end of the demo site URL e.g. if your demo site is www.your-site.com/demo and you have 5 demos on it, one can see the latest demo added, by default but by calling www.your-site.com/demo?siteid=2, users can see the second demo of iDemo instead of the latest one.
