ODude Profile ComponentModulePlugin

In addition of private messaging, unlimited photo gallery, point system, Facebook meta tags, Facebook comment, custom user field,
now any FREE & Commercial module can be placed inside ODude Profile Component to specified location.

Total new concept adopted.

This is a completely automated Web Application that allows your website to turn into public / private community based site like Facebook, Hi5, Myspace.

Unlike other community based components of Joomla it has following qualities.

* It has not touched core files of Joomla.
* Most of the Joomla's extension based on members will work fine.
* It doesn't require any migration or synchronization of users.
(Name, Emails & system details are imported)
* Uninstalling of the product will not loose any core registered members.
* Default Joomla Login Module.
Facebook connect is integrated.
* Default Member Registration.
* Default password reset of Joomla.
* Default User Manger at back end.
* Point system with expiry date.
* Offer list for 3rd party affiliate.

In short, It just add member capabilities with profile information and can grow up to large complex social networking site.

Many modules free and ready to use.

I needed a simple community with custom profile fields. One that does not have just a core and many commercial add on modules!
OhDude has been the answer for our website.
The support has been excelent and quick responding to one issue that the core had with IE browser.
This is one component that we will pay for.
Thanks for the help and an excellent community component.

i have tested a lot of social extensions in the JED and my preffered is still odude! the interface is great and its flexible to add new menu!

the only problem is when facebook comment is allowed, sometimes the page dont stop loading and reloading!

and it would be cool if you make odude profile integrate with kunena forum!

I have bought and installed version 2.0.1
Overall I have to say that I decided for it because I didn't find any other extension with the same features. I give it 3 and a half stars in features because even though it is good there still many things that I would implement on it if it was my own software. Also, unfortunately there is no compensation by the developer to those who contribute with ideas, so I keep them to myself lol.

The extension is easy to use and install so even a joomla novice can do it, however expect little flexibility is customisation. WYSIWYG!

Documentation for my version is very poor or non existent. You really need to get messages back and forth to/from the developer if you have any advanced questions you would like answered. I had no issues with this type of support and always got a response to the ones I made.

I would give it 4 stars if there was a more attractive pricing model. You make a one off payment and if there are upgrades or bug fixes, you have to pay for each and everyone of them!!..
The developer also offers a club membership by which you can get upgrades for a period of three months. My experience with this software is that this club membership is a)very expensive b)it's unlikely you get your money's worth as there aren't enough releases for your chosen software to make up for your investment within the three month period!. You may as well wait for the latest release and pay AGAIN for it!.

Overall not bad but unfortunate to those (like me) who like to have always the latest releases installed! If you are happy to buy it and live with the original version forever, then the 4 and half stars apply here.

The component is great, fast support. Disadvantages: the module search members, the comments in the profile that are only related to fb - you can put connect to any component as jComments, the author on their site does not have newsletters.
In any case, thank you for this wonderful component.

Its really promising. I have never written a review and this is my first coz your work is excellent. It misses out lots of things but its very promising. I would like to invest in your project if possible.

...but a little way to go yet. The concept is great and to a certain degree the execution isn't bad but when I installed this on my J1.6 site using the ja_purity_ii theme, the format for the user profile page was just ugly. I am sure with a bit of fiddling around I could sort this out but to be honest, its just too much trouble and would probably be overwritten if there was an update I applied. How about allowing skins or themes to be applied?

"Out of the box" this extension works well and the profile page is MUCH cleaner than Community Builder. However, it is very limited when you want to do things like add more tabs to the User Profile or creating a custom Registration/Login.

As mentioned, it does not come with a Login/Register component so you are stuck with the stock (limited) Joomla login. I tried using the CB Login for Registration but could not find a way to get the CB and ODude fields to "talk" to each other. I emailed the dev but have not heard back.

Also, documentation is literally non-existent and there isn't even a user-to-user forum, even when you pay for the added extensions. Heck, I'd be willing to write the docs if I could get some answers.

I have tested oDude for Joomla 1.5 and that works like a charm.

But when i tested oDude for Joomla 1.6 it wasent so fun, it does not work at all.

To bad that i cant find where i can signup on oDude website or even mail them. so i cant report the problem i have.

I installed and ran your program. I like the format. It does what it says. This program can be great. I gave it four stars because without paying for commercial version it loses some luster. Good overall.

After installing this, I added browse members to my site, accessible for all registrated users. With my test user, which has authorization as registret, I can log in as any user. When clicking on a profile, I can see his username and a link where I can log in as that user and edit his profile.

This must be a major security issue. One thing is to be able to that from the backend but from front end is a disaster. I have not found any documentation about how to remove this neither. I would like to see how I disable this "feature" both from backend and frontend before I dare to use this extention.

Except from that the extension looks great and work fine

Don't worry. Its only you (admin) who can see this "Login as Uername" at the front end.
Its only displayed on same computer where you have logged in as administrator. As soon as you log out link goes out.
No other user users or guest will able to login.

Owner's reply

Well, currently we have only English Language Support.
It's lacking lots of features besides having hundreds of daily downloads.
In very short period we have fixed lots of issues.
Please comment at so that we can grow more better.

Wow, Its so fast and quick.
I didn't face any problem while installing and it worked as soon as it is installed & set parameters from its control panel.
Facebook Module is excellent, It doubled my member registration.
Curiously waiting for next version.

Sorry to do this - but upon uninstalling, it erased all my community builder profile views when clicking on the default community builder profile links. My database looks like its still probably ok - i HOPE. I'm checking on that now.
Owner's reply

I am surprised to hear it.

Upon uninstalling ODude Profile it drop only one table created by it.
DROP TABLE IF EXISTS `#__odude_profile`;
Files & folder created under com_odudeprofile.

Pictures uploded by users should delete manually by deleting its folder.

To update ODude Profile do not uninstall, just overwrite the files.

Its not typical of me to write reviews but i was forced to do so. And in my own view, this component is really promising to be the best component in its category with others available. I just wish that it could have some more admin control towards the frontend users like the ability to limit on how many photos a user can add, ability to send a quick message to online members, to allow connection request, Integration with some PMS available, an option for admin to customize the form or the ability to add more profile options based on the site owner's data needed, etc.

Otherwise, its a nice component and so much promising to lead others available so far.

Please keep up the spirit and just stay committed .

Thank you Ronnie,
feedback like yours will definitely help us to be more better.

Since its first release its still missing the main features as you mentioned above. And I can promise everyone that all the features will be added in near future.

The next update users can import email address from Gmail, Yahoo, AOL which will allow connection request.
The receiver will able to see sender profile picture itself into message body.

Who is online & Random profile module just added.
