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"!

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!
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!
