When I first started using Classifieds Redux, it had some minor hiccups, however the developer quickly fixed them and listens to recommendations. The software seems to be updated regularly with enhancements and improvements and rocks!
The developer is very active with always making this component better and better, so much so, that it's not my favorite Classifieds component for Joomla.
Although it looks and operates in a similar way as Adsmanager, it does things and has more features that Adsmanager doesn't have and the developer is always adding more and improving it on a more regular basis! The support is also awesome (rarely have to wait more than 24 hours for help).
Having savvy and dependable support is an absolute and the ability to customize this component to meet various site needs is awesome! Great job!
If anyone has a problem with this component, I feel that haven't learned how to use the component or simply didn't ask for support. The support and the current version of this component surpasses others by a mile that I've used!
Support is really fantastic, the developer is very quick to respond to any problems that may occur.
This extension will work great for a Joomla novice or a seasoned Joomla expert.
I highly recommend this extension.
Terrible review from an unknown individual. I checked my records and couldn't find anyone that purchased my product with this user's id. If they did then I don't believe they have contacted me regarding problems. I am more than happy to resolve any issues, but can't if they don't come forward.
I hope in future releases to see video integration (maybe via YouTube) and if possible, the option for coupon discounts. I will be watching for upgrades! This extension is great, 5 stars!
Thanks for the kind words, I hadn't thought of including video but I like that suggestion, I will definitely plan on incorporating it. There is already a discount feature when allowing cloning of existing ads.
Great working component and the back up support is second to none.
Emil, keep up the great work. The price for your work is well worth it.
I recommend anyone wanting a classified site to go with this one.
