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"!

Yesterday was a bleak day as we got Microsoft Office Live working on one machine, and hours later still non-sensical error messages spewing out. Today however after referring to the Joomla Extensions Directory we found Projectfork and both of us are fully functional and up and running after little more than 1 hour of installing and configuring.
Well done to all at Projectfork!
If you are working professional with biger projects Joomla! Sites and Portals like me, then you need a full functional projectmanagement. this component should be your first choice. it's absolutly professional in design and function.
thanks to giving for free...
One can argue that Basecamp, like other hosted solutions, provides superior feature depth and that Microsoft Project is much more powerful - but, these programs all lack that mainline connection to your website, can cost a lot of money, and limit accessibility to your own information.
Project Fork is about building upon your existing Joomla infrastructure, including it's user-base and developing a collaborative solution which allows Project Tracking accompanied by dedicated Task Lists, Versioned File Storage with comments (Pro version), Messaging (like a forum) and Task-based Time Tracking.
As with any tool, one should always examine their requirements first and *then* determine if the tool suffices. Project Fork absolutely delivers on it's promises.
It's a free component, but I highly encourage throwing some monetary support at these guys - they deserve it!
I can't wait for this component to be extended to add various charting and reporting tools, and also being able to integrate with popular calendar formats, and integration with subversion (the built in file repository is usable, but subversion is far more advanced). I would also like it to inherit CSS from my template. Anyway, that's my wish list.
Complete configuration and project setup took approximately 30 minutes. This included adding tasks, milestones, etc.
I didn't read any documentation, didn't need to ask for any help. It is a well thought and well laid out component. Kudos to the developers and thank you for making it open to everyone!
Great work and hopefully you guys have another extension of some sort in the works. As I am sure it will rock! as well.
Adding an incredible amount of functionality with just one simple install. Creating a company wide Intranet can be done in under 2 work days. And that is counting extra component and module installs.
The code is clear and simple, with minor knowledge of PHP this component can be modified to suit some completley different means. From game areas to personal user group pages.
I would like to say thanks to the developers behind it, as this is nearly a CMS on its own.
This has everything I have been looking for. Not only is it great for project management but we use it for trouble ticketing (for internal use only). It's fast loading, intuitive and easy to pick up and start using.
It also looks like you can totally trick this app out with plug-ins. I still need to see what can be added or extended, but "out of the box" this thing rocks!
It combines a project manager, file manager, task manager, calendar and forum all into one to form one of the best project management tools available.
I understand it has been completely rebuilt to work seemlessly with J1.5 - and it certainly does. Any review that does not refer to v2.0 is no longer relevant.
As for the help and documentation - there are very clear links to all the documentation, there is a demo site with backend access, getting started videos and a forum. Not sure what else they could provide.
What's more, this is a FREE component. I have upgraded to the File Manager Pro which I paid a small fee for but it adds some great functionality. BUT, the all "off the shelf" free file manage included in the package is more than adequate for most needs.
Simply mindblowing bit of work by Tobias and the team. Well done and thank you for making my life easy!! :-)
No success. And the documentation on the site is lacking, or I was unable to locate it.
Looks like it has some nice features, but if administrators are the only ones that can use it, then it is of no use for 99.9% of a site's members.
What am I missing, and where can I find it?
I don't know how you managed to spend SEVERAL HOURS setting up a test project. The documentation is located at docs.projectfork.net. I also offer great forum support at forum.projectfork.net. In any case, Projectfork is clearly not for you or any other small-minded individual who is unable to locate the documentation or at least ask for help.
Few minor changes will be very much welcomed:
1- ability to add custom color for new projects (why limit when we can un-limit)
2- I am using the option "Hides the joomla template in the frontend in order to gain more space." There are two problems though: a- there is no "back to website" option. b- more importantly there is no "log off" option!
Thank you so much for this solution.
