You can use other plugins and load position calls in articles and still preview the differences.
Now you can also preview articles without publishing them! A first as far as we know this is a first in the Joomla verse.
There is also a free downloadable version too!
It iterfer with yoothemes Widgetkit, makes the kit not work. And after I uninstall the RealPreview component, I can not Edit my articles. I recive error, Component not found. There is clearly something missing (not removed properly).
Thanks for the review we really appreciate it. Please bring any support issues to our support channel where we can deal with them directly. [Compatibility issues with WidgetKit was fixed in last update]
So a useful extension definitely. Plus the developer did a great job sorting out a conflict that occurred with another extension.
The demo site made it crystal clear what I was getting, and a painless install later it was up and running in 1 of my websites. I will have to find the time to install it into each of my sites as it is a huge time saver.
Not only that, but support is fast and friendly.
I am just amazed that this is not yet in the Joomla core.
I had a small support request about drafts not being deleted when the original article was deleted and received personal communication about it with the promise of a plugin to provide this functionality.
I understand they are working on some more extensions, so I shall certainly keep a close eye on them. Well done!
The real power in Real Preview is the versioning system. This is something that has been missing and sorely needed. No more having to explain to a client that there is no undo once you save or apply changes. No more having to run Akeeba backups constantly just to make simple edits. And no more having to explain why the preview button is "broken".
Real Preview is simple to use and understand. The interface is very intuitive for any Joomla user. It couldn't be any easier to use. I haven't needed support though I did send in a question that was promptly answered within the hour.
They are planning K2 support in the near future as an added bonus. This will definitely be a must have for all of our Joomla installs.
An email and literally minutes later I had a response and assistance and the problem was solved.
Sometimes I set up websites with article content already in place for a client. It isn't days before I am having to find the article in the backups and restore it after the formatting and layouts are accidentally overwritten by the client.
To prevent this, I would teach customers to always make copies of articles before editing them. The version control feature alone in this component is priceless and well worth the price. An excellent 2-for-1 offer!
