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.
Change log: 2.7 to 2.8
Now admin can create/manage offers for the 3rd party affilate.
Eg. 500 points for 100 days @ US$ 10 [Christmas Offer]
More tighten point system with integration option for 3rd party developer.
Free Signup BONOUS point with expiry date option for new user.
New member can enroll into the offer and that offer will be only avilable for selected members.
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.
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!
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.
In any case, thank you for this wonderful component.
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.
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.
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 ODude.com so that we can grow more better.
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.
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.
