Projectfork consists of many extensions working together; but the streamlined interface will make you feel right at home as if you're using a regular, single component. Installing and uninstalling Projectfork is as simple as with any extension: A single package to install, and a single extension to remove from your site.
User Experience First
Projectfork looks and behaves like your average Joomla 3 extension for the most part so you can it pick up naturally. If you ever get stuck, we provide plenty of comprehensible documentation on our website.
Projectfork uses a Joomla-native code approach wherever possible and is written "by the book" and best code practices. There is no custom theme engine, no Zend or other framework - just pure Joomla MVC architecture. Looking to hire a developer to make some modifications? No need to find a "Projectfork specialist"!

1. An option to prevent users who aren’t assigned to a certain task see/receive emails about that task
2. Feature to display the completed tasks on the calendar in different color than non-completed ones
- main component is free (though it really shouldn't be)
- easy install
- wealth of configuration settings and options
- stable behavior and good integration with Joomla
- extendible - I ended up purchasing the full bundle and was pleased with modular nature of upgrades. Additions were easy to install, integrate and control. File management pro extension was well worth the money.
- Partial documentation. Available documentation is excellent, but is incomplete. It did seem that was something that was actively worked on though.
Be patient with this component as ACL is a complex and messy concept by nature and isn't straightforward to set. Plan out carefully what you want done. Allow time to play with settings to figure stuff out and then start from scratch if needed.
I am certain to stick with this extension for a number of projects. Kudos to the developer for a job well done.
Overall this is a great extension and works well using V3.0.3
Note: strength is a permit and safety management
Definitely the most advanced free project management extension for Joomla I've seen. Very well made with a great professional GUI. Email notifications and tasks are my favourite features. Give it a try, but be smart and backup your site first (as you should do before installing any extension)!
The UI for Projectfork is extremely customizable and with some cleverness could be used for a lot more than just project management. Nearly every facet of the UI can be turned off or adjusted to fit the needs of nearly any website or idea.
Plus there are some great add-ons and themes for this extension too.
The commissioning system is a little complex, but once you understand it, your good to go.
I am not a programmer but was able to easily make some slight code modifications to make it a little "better' for me. I think this speaks to the clarity in their design style.
I highly recommend Project Fork.
On my wishlist for taking further would be a Wiki and some sort of Gantt view of tasks. Throw in integration with a CCK so I can make custom forms - eg expense claims - and it'll be my number 1 joomla extension ever!
