I originally also had a MySQL Syntax problem with this component / plug-in however customer service was prompt and individual. A new version was developed through testing on my Joomla 3.3.3 installation and we managed to fix the bug. The component and plugin is now working perfectly with no further syntax error. The unique point of putting a FEATURED article on not-featured is what attracted me to this component in particular. It should be standard to put a timing to featured articles, but it is not yet. So thank you to the programming team for looking at my indivdual problem and developing this component further.

I did hear many positive reactions about this extension and in Joomla 2.5 it seems to work fine. But not in Joomla 3.3. I tried this extension on a clean Joomla 3.3. extension with the example data from Joomla but the result was a SQL Syntax errors

This error message related to bad configuration of managing rule. For example, you need to activate at least one option from Set/Modify/Change/Move to Another Category options, when you have selected Update method.

We have added additional code to prevent this error. But may comparing operator was not working properly on your server. This function will be improved next release.

I purchased this and its not working correctly with my template. I am sure it could work fine with other templates. It has good possibilities. I emailed developer for support, but after 3 attempts still no reply. As I am not a full expert on Joomla, and rely on support, for this reason only I cant rate this extension

I think this bug (its not working correctly with my template) has been removed now. Check change-log/release history and compare it with PHP error message.

I use this extension for more then a year now and I'm very satisfied. Articles are automatically archived after three months and automatically the 'special article' indication is removed after two months. Hopefully it will be made ready for Joomla 3.0 as soon as possible!
