- Manage extensions remotely from a single place,
- Keep versions history,
- Escalate to users (e.g. Developer to Manager, Manager to QA, QA to Librarian),
- Build based on the new Joomla! ACL security system a complete 'move to production' process, to as many stages you wish (e.g. development, testing, production)
This extension is a huge time saver for those managing many sites with many extensions. The developer is very responsive to bug reports and feature suggestions. The one-time purchase price for an unlimited number of sites is also great.
Now I have all of my staging server sites hooked up to one control panel and can update the extensions all at once. Truly awesome.
SP Staging is a FANTASTIC tool! I can check all my sites for updates with just one click! And if there is a new version of Joomla! or an extension, then I can update every portal using this extension! Wow! Really WOW!
This saves me so much work! I don't have to login to each portal and update it! I can do it from SP Staging!
And when I want to install a new extension on every portal ( website), I just upload the extension to SP Staging and deploy it to every website! Dead easy!
I can't understand why so few people are giving this extension feedback.
The guys at Cyend.com also created the SP Upgrade (Joomla migration tool) and that's how I discovered SP Staging.
Thanks for a GREAT extension! Continue the great development! :-)
Now, if we could only get this product to instruct Joomla 2.5 to self upgrade, we would have no reason to remotely login and upgrade Joomla core installs manually...
