Some of FLEXIcontent Unique features:

-- Multi-state Workflow to assist both editors & publishers to add/update content to your site
-- Highly configurable powerful notification system: (Global) Component + Per Content Type + Per category
-- High parametrized Fields(=joomla plugin each) (carefully structured to assist configuration and be performance wise)
-- Powerful relation/reverse Relation fields to create custom Content Item sub-listing inside a Content Item
-- An powerful image/gallery field to create DB-reusable image/galleries or item-field specific galleries with numerous parameterization options
-- Multiple filter apperances: text field/single select/dual text range/dual select range/toggle radio/toggle checkbox(multiple filter values)

-- A -Free- Advanced Search view (to host the above 2, but also available in categories too) and create content-rich listings
-- Directory/Catalog features, directory view + a powerful Alpha-Index with character aliases, character aggregations, language customizations
-- Selective plugin triggering in all fields
-- High performance frontend views and items manager, with steady performance as sites grows (**installing on EXISTING larges sites 20,000+ items is still slow, TODO), (and works with full page caching extensions)
-- 30+ ACL actions (e.g. edit field value)
-- ... many more UNIQUE

I never was interested earlier to write reviews on JED.
But having tried this component in a current of 20 minutes, I have been surprised by its perfection.
Component on so much convenient, intuitive, thoughtful and functional that is immediately obvious - the person did it with love:)
As all management is based on AJAX - is saves a lot of time and gives sensation of work as a desktop application.
Integrated support for third-party comment, the built in manager of plug-ins, of comments, the visual template editor and still very much more - makes this CCK different from all others.
Excellent product. If I met the author, I would have shook his hand.

Flexicontent is a great component, but there is one glaring flaw that I can't get over, its inability to automatically bind new stories. While this isn't a problem for most sites, it is for ours. We have an auto RSS feeder bringing in stories from different sites. They are created on our site, however because they will not bind automatically if someone clicks on the story they get a 404 page not found error. This is completely unacceptable for a news site. While the component has many nice features, if you using automatic articles of any kind either stay away or be prepared to log in every day and bind them. Having to log in every day kind of defeats the point of having the site do everything on its own if you ask me.

Hi and first of all thank you for testing FLEXIcontent and reviewing it.
Sorry that FLEXIcontent doesn't meet your SPECIFIC requirement out of the box but I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s not a standard behavior ;-)
Now imagine a second an automatic binding process: you are happy to just have installed FLEXIcontent on your nice shared hosting. You have around 2000 articles, the automatic binding process execute itself and…
… a big MySQL crash!!! (10.000 queries) :-(
I’m sure you can understand this feature cannot be standard.
But the point is FLEXIcontent has still been developed for YOU: that mean it’s extensible enough to achieve this task easily with a simple system plugin (that would have bound the Joomla data for you).
The easiest way would have been to simply ask on the forum ;-)

When I downloaded it, I was not expecting it to integrate so smoothly with Joomla core. One of the things that I've been struggling with is getting hooked to K2 and not being able have a smooth transition upgrading to Joomla 1.6. All I can say is Wow!!!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS COMPONENT!!! I have been playing around with it for about 30 minutes now and the wows have not stopped!!!! Excellent Job!!!

FlexiContent is phenomenal. Great documentation, incredibly powerful features, well done UX and backwards compatible. Joomla 1.6 + FlexiContent (+ FlexiAccess) = Joomla! 2.0

As a CCK veteran i have received Flexicontent with a bit of mistrust at first. A whole afternoon fiddling around was enough to realize that we are before a unique piece of software, meticulously crafted, feature rich *as for a BETA* and with potential beyond my wildest dreams for Joomla 1.5. Unlike Jx Catalog or Mighty Resources, Flexicontent is extremely design friendly, with CSS class allover. In comparison to K2, it renders a very clean and well formatted code.
Another very impressive upside is the built in template system, which one can tame in no time just by following the default templates. The fact that it is seamlessly integrated with Joomla core makes good old com_content useless, while we can still use modules designed to work with it.
We are definitely before one of the most powerful extensions ever written for Joomla. I am seriously considering quiting com_content altogether in future developments. It feels like a downgrade!

I was desperately needing something much more user friendly and better looking for my website, ran into FlexiContent and will never go back. It works just like the joomla 1.5 com_content system but better. Nice work from the developers!

Okay, this is a good component, but what i can't understand is, that this is a cck without a frontend editing?
It is very easy to make fields, categories and it's a beautifull drag 'n' drop template system.
but without a frontend access to fill the articles with content is this component for me personaly not realy senseful.

This could be the most needed cck component for joomla 1.5. But for the moment i will use still jseblod cck. This is a little bit more difficult, but there are more posibilities.

You have done very good job. When it next year are also the front-end editing, you'll get from me seven stars.

What a wonderful component.
Fast installation and working well though I think a tutorial in English will help to master it faster.
Thanks for this gift!
