I don't know how to write a line of code, php, MySQL are just strange language for me. With Seblod, learn a bit of their syntaxe and you will have the possibilities to create all the apps your website need. If you need help, forum or professionnal support is a real plus. Thanks to all seblod team for their work and their availability.

While I am excited to see the potential of what Seblod can do for a CCK solution. Its a very buggy and temperamental component and poor use of Ajax technology.
Just opening a exiting list or content type can completely reset your template layout making it very nerve racking when updating a clients site. Default template layout is very buggy with eratic displays for list view on front end. These issues have been well expressed to the developers yet there is so far no 100% fix, usually just workarounds.

At our first meeting at JandBeyond in 2012, we were introduced to SEBLOD. Thank you for that.

The CCK with the most powerful options you can imagine.

This has helped us take a new view on how projects can be worked on, making almost every project we do achievable.

For those who are struggling, take the time to learn the system, it will be worth the effort.

Thanks to Sebastien and his team.

SEBLOD is by far the most powerful component for Joomla!

I have used SEBLOD for 3 years and am continually amazed by the new features and updates that the development team produce. All of my Joomla! projects now run SEBLOD as it gives you flexibility to tailor your content types and forms specifically to your client's needs.

The SEBLOD community on the forums is great too. Everyone is willing to help out where they can. This is something really special and is evidence that everyone who uses SEBLOD believes in it's unlimited possibilities.

SEBLOD allowed me to create powerful websites without knowing PHP or SQL. My development time for websites has reduced dramatically. It is fantastic.

Add fields to the Joomla! article form, create your own new custom content types, create dynamic list pages, create powerful search functionality and much more.

Thank you, and continue the great work.

I have been using Joomla for last 4 years, after trying approx all CCKs and Application Builders, I found that this is the best extension if one wants to create something special in less time.

Years ago I met Saba on a JUG, and he told me all about Seblod. I didn't get it. I figured it was just another K2.

It's so much more. It allows for the total conversion of your Joomla platform, making it ideal for commercial use.

There is a lot to learn with this CCK / App Builder. It's not for any novice, but you don't have to be an expert programmer to work with it.

The ability to build completely unique custom content types for a variety of clients makes this the most valuable extension available for Joomla! Best of all you can keep the core content models as an option for flexibility.

I'm currently working on two huge projects I wouldn't dream of doing without Seblod. A Client-Side Auction Site and a Customer Resource Manager.

The only drawback is the community isn't active enough, there's not much support from the mods, and they don't share Apps on the Seblod website (such as Forum or Ecommerce).

On the other hand, you can find great documentation and tutorials just by googling.

My only question at this stage... how is Seblod supposed to be pronounced?

If have tried to use Seblod many many times, started with the first releases and know 3.1.5.
But unfortunately the main issues were never solved. The well known issue of "missing template" has a new look, but instead of making the error more fancy, Seblod should have fixed it.

The crux of Seblod is its implementation in Joomla! CMS. Instead of enhance the core items like articles, categories or users, or just live aside core items, Seblod is placed above them. This could work, if there weren't other extensions or the CMS itselfs.

Just a choice of points which makes me hate Seblod:

1. Editing content types is still bugged (breaks the whole site) and a crapshoot
2. Missing clear seperation of cck-items and core-items
3. High risk of breaking things if you do "natural" things like click on the edit-button on articles list
4. Super complex template system without the ability to create what you want
5. Not taking any advantage of Joomla! (like native template system)

But maybe the biggest point is:
Seblod had enough time to evolve and become a solid CCK, but nothing happens.

Sybrek, it seems you miss a lot of things.

There is no "issue" about "missing template". If you don't assign a template to your view it's normal and the message is here to help you!

1. Not true
2. It's an advantage. The end user keep the same interface. Joomla article editing and SEBLOD article editing is exactly the same. On Joomla side it's static, on SEBLOD side it's dynamic and can you change any elements.
3. False, you can click on all Joomla action buttons in article manager, it's working nice with SEBLOD too!
4. You miss a lot of features on SEBLOD templates such as standard Joomla override
5. Totally stupid! SEBLOD is build on Joomla framework, totally integrated to Joomla and just bring you all features that Joomla can not do such as CCK features, form features, custom search features..

SEBLOD 3 use all new features of Joomla 3 and you have now just 60 new products around SEBLOD such as Importer Add-on, Select Dynamic Cascade Field, Developer Add-on..

I have built different types of websites using Joomla. No matter the content on each one, I always find myself coming back to Seblod to get things the way I want it.

It is a learning curve, but it is amazing how you can carve your content into whatever you want. The best part, I think, is that you can tell it where to store the data in the database.

As said by other, this extension is a bit hard to understand at the begining, but its worth the time you spend on it.

I've tried almost all other CCK's on Joomla, I think it's by far the best of all.

Thank you guys for that huge piece of work !

In the right hands this component is a weapon. You can do anything you can imagine with it. Although the support is not the greatest and the learning is a bit difficult once you understand it you will not be sorry. There were times at which I wanted to give it up, but I'm very far from sorry that I didn't. SEBLOD is a game changer.

Thank you SEBLOD team

PRO : We can feel that you worked a lot on the tool. And that you are also using it for you own project. And It is possible to do so many many things with it. So it might be the best CCK Joomla. But..

CONS : I used jSeblod 3/4 years ago (I think) and I liked the extension a lot but it was a pain dans les fesses to understand how it worked. Same thing for this version.. I know you are busy and don't have no money to give to people to write a free full documentation.
But to get a real user guide I would ki.. I mean "pay" a lot.
You should add a poll on your website to see if people would pay for it.

Anyway Ganbatte / Bon courage !

Forget all of the other cck's. Seblod is all you really need to do anything with your Joomla site. Documentation is limited and it is not recommended for a novice user, but if you can spend the time with it, you will be heavily rewarded!!!

Seblod makes creating complex websites become an exercise in logic. As if creating powerful websites, were same as playing chess.

I'm using Seblod from the first version to the latest version. The team of developers are spending several years working on this great joomla package.

Thank you for make my life easier. I admire you.

This is the most amazing extension I've EVER used for Joomla. I now have freedom to build my sites the way I want. This is - BY FAR - the best component for developing forms and content development.

Seblod is a very powerful cck, it increases the capacity of Joomla to infinity. Without being a developer, I could create custom content by setting my fields available and dragging them into position template. It takes a little time before you can successfully use this component, but more you know it, more possibilities become endless.

I love this extension. It saved my life. You can create a complex cck site in a couple of hours if you are used to the user interface. I tried all CCK plugins and this is the better so far. Still has some problems, it is no perfect, some times "normal" links does not work and you can experiment some problems with standard joomla content, that´s why I dont rate 5 stars.

If you don't want to have any problem of instability on your site (content origin forms from joomla disapears, unstable pages, incompatibility with some other extentions, etc...) don't use this CCK.
So... what is the badest way is that if you want to uninstall it.... ABSOLUTLY NO INFORMATION for do it, no answer from the support team, and no conventional way to do it, because you stay with CCK template/plugin who don't want to uninstall, and also, you will need to delete by yourself ALL YOUR TEXT AUTOMATICALLY WRITING BY SEBLOD inside your contents.
SO, in the real, SEBLOD is not properly good CCK and permiss himself to do what he want without any easy back way for you and compromise the stability of the joomla system. I make one star because maybe if you are only this extention, it will be works without unstability for some limited actions (but, i'm not sure).
Owner's reply

What you do is just stupid! We can not learn you to read
If you uninstall like this all big extensions, you will meet always a lot of issue.
