The Factory won't issue me a refund, even though the software I bought never worked, and was never used on a 'live' site.
I would never normally comment like this, as I'm too busy designing websites, but I felt the urge to let others know how unhappy this particular customer is.
1. Since your order is 7 months old, we cannot perform a refund - Paypal has a 60 days limit.
2. You submitted 8 tickets and all of them were answered very clearly, pinpointing to the real issue and we never got a feedback from you with the reply from your hosting company.
Both issues were not SocialFactory - related:
a.) the upload issue was caused due to a 3rd party plugin causing a restriction on file upload.
b.) adding videos was working well even on your site when we logged in for investigation.
It's a pitty that after we did our job to help, you repeatedly rejected our direct indications and help, choosing now to post this revenge review.
Furthermore, the support is excellent. Forum questions are answered mostly within a day and suggestions for improvements are taken seriously. So many compliments for this great Joomla extension!
As we clearly explained to you in our forums and ticket system, we can not provide support for WAREZ downloaded extensions, even if they claim the kit is not altered (I think it is an self explanatory rule).
There are several reasons, one of them being that we can not assess what modifications the warez hackers did to the script, and it's pretty unfair to ask for support for a product you never paid for.
Third is that you have an outdated version (v1.5.x), and we can not provide you
with an upgrade for a warez download.
Best regards and thank you for your feedback!
The Factory Team
Changing the look for some of my pages was also pretty easy to achieve and self explanatory.
Any issues i raised on the forums were very promptly answered and the guys were very helpful.
Also, i can only thank Alex for his great support on the forum - i am for sure in debt with some beers
Overall a solid extension and a very good experience
