COMPLETE FEATURE LIST:
Customer support is also really helpful, so I am less concerned about the subscription price, although by comparison it is a bit higher than most. However, the developers are pretty responsive and pleasant to deal with.
One thing that is a bit cumbersome is the update procedure - it would be nice in future versions to have things a bit more automated since the installation requires a specific sequence to the installation of com and mod files. The only other thing would be perhaps the ability to explicitly choose the form that fits with the task. The way it is set up now, the registration form and the profile form default to specific forms that is coded into the platform- and I had some problems initially because older versions of the forms were being picked than the ones I intended. Again, easily solved with good customer support. Have also suggested that future versions have the ability to batch assign forms to specific users, which would be a helpful addition to the module.
Thanks for a great product and support.
Feedback from users has been very positive and easy to work with
My requirement was to register different users to different predetermined user groups, dependent on which entry point/form they used. In other words, multiple registration forms on a single site.
I followed the installation guidance on the website and right away I was able to set up forms and allocate them to user groups that I had already added to the ACL. The layout follows existing Joomla 3.x methodology so it was easy to work out how to set up all the parameters.
I re-assigned the login modules as per the user guide and, hey-presto, it worked seamlessly. I am delighted.
So why only four stars? Glad you asked. The purchase process is dire. There is no explanation of the pricing. What exactly am I getting for my $39? Is it a license? Is it for multiple sites? Will the license be automatically renewed? What support is included? None of this information is available and it only becomes clear that the fee is for a 180 day license at the end of the laborious purchase process.
The terms and conditions are hidden at the bottom of the page in the footer menu. I thought I had better give them a really good read before I pressed the final buy button.
I quote - "our feature list and live demo site are very representative of our software". I hope not - the front-end demo didn't work for me. The much needed trial version is non-existent. In the end I made a leap of faith based on the reviews here in the JED.
I'm glad I did. Great product. But if your hoping to be cosseted in the paternal hands of an immersive retail-therapy process - no, this is about as comforting as stepping into a cow pat with your bare foot on a frosty morning.
Hi Go-rilla and thank you for the great review on ExtendedReg and what a great product it is. However...the rest of what you posted is so incorrect I had to comment about it.
1. The Terms and Conditions are not hidden at all. They are located in the registration process for you to accept or you would not be allowed to register. So you accepted the T & C during registration.
2. During your purchase, on the final page "Confirmation Page" there is a link directly above the "Finish" button stating "By clicking on 'Finish' button you agree with our terms & conditions". With a link to the T & C just in case you missed it during registration
3. It IS located in the footer of every page for anyone that missed it during registration and during the purchase process.
So I really don't know how many other places you would like us to have it.
4. During the purchase process, there is also the License of 180 Days with a tool tip explaining you are not limited to use the extension for as long as you like and on as many sites as you like. The 180 days is for support and updates.
With that said, I think you just chose to find the hardest way possible to find your information before making your purchase ;-)
I needed a register component that would create two forms and than each form assigned to the registered users to one of the groups created, one form for the sellers automatically assign them to the group of sellers, and another form for users which would assign to the Users group.
This component do that and simplified my work. Now I don't have to review each registered user and assign manualy their groups.
Forgive my english but is not my native laguaje :P
-- A customised registration form / user profile (Native Joomla registration extension is not that customisable)
-- Extension must be able to register users automatically and users must be able to activate their account via a link sent by e-mail
I Tried other extensions which gave the customised form capability but without the ability for users to automatically be registered.
ExtendedReg gave me 100% what I required and in my opinion is a superb extension. Support on their forum is also excellent and very fast. I have tested this extension with success in the latest versions of Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera and IE.
I would recommend this extension to anyone with the same requirements, you will definitely get your money's worth.
-- Use the CAPTCHA that is supplied with ExtendedReg, I had some trouble with SecurImage 3.0.1 on Chrome, Safari and Opera.
-- Also, enable the jVFixScript plugin that is installed with the ExtendedReg extension.
The component however enables you to extend the registration process to new limits and is a very good thing to buy if you need such things.
We also use the Flexible Web Design shopping cart theme and Istraxx UPS shipping module. Everything was working exactly as we wanted when we added ExtendedReg. It was our hope to use this as a way to assign new users to particular shopping groups, thereby facilitating discounts for that group.
After we installed and configured ER, the shopping cart changed from automatically selecting the one and only one UPS real time quoting system and the PayPal plug-in, which were configured to be automatically selected, to now forcing the user to select each choice.
I submitted a support request 3 days ago, but have not heard a reply.
This product may eventually do what we paid $100.00 for it to do, but the support leaves much to be desired.
Hi johnlanglois and thank you for your review. Your 3 days was actually 2 over the weekend. Monday morning we responded to your support question. After working with you and spending several hours on your site, you determined that the issue you were having existed before you even installed ExtendedReg and was a misconfiguration on your part of the shopping cart and a 3rd party plugin. Though we do appreciate ALL feed back, good or bad, I think a fair assessment of the ExtendedReg is only fair.
Thumbs up for this!!!
Yes, the knowledge base available through the forum is extensive, but you better know exactly how to phrase your search. And you should also know some basic PHP and MySQL.
It's good, but it's not easy.
Thank you for your feed back. Unfortunately none of your review is very accurate. Extendedreg DOES have complete documentation. Extendedpages is documented directly in the admin panel. It requires absolutely no php or MySQL from the user part.
It does give you the ability to modify the HTML output to better suite your needs
