### UPDATED VERSION 2.50 ###
Thanks a lot for this great extension!
This extension allows the publisher to get creative with Polls
This extension allows the publisher to gain insight; the extension can be configure to allow users to add their own responses which can be valuable insight that helps us broaden our options. Furthermore, this extension can be configured to allow user to add comments to the listed answers. This too can help the publisher gain insight about the user's experience.
FOR WISHLIST, I would prefer that jVoteSystem allowed the user to manipulate the display of the polls by following joomla guidelines about file structure. As of now, it is difficult to manipulate or style the polls through component / module override or alternative layout
THANK YOU jVote System
First, the lengths to which the author goes to protect the credit link in the front is nothing short of amazing - encoding it along with parts of the interface with base64 is borderline GPL violation to say nothing of potential security risk.
Good functionality with some very bad UI ideas.
1) I'm sorry that you were not able to customize jVoteSystem to your needs, but at least you didn't experience any problems in functionality and you didn't encounter some bugs. This is what matters, right? Therefore i'm really disappointed by this review.
2) why didn't you try contact us via support forums? Usually you can expect a fast answer and feature proposals are going to be implemented asap (if reasonable).
3) the encoded parts are removed within v2.05, sorry for that.
And always remember: the component has been developed in our spare time and it is for free!
JVoteSystem has thoroughly impressed me.. not just with the features they have implemented but with the ease of use. Troubles with v.2.03 are long gone and the devs upgrade to v.2.04 quickly put those worries to ease. Practically right out of the box! It's simple for anyone to navigate around it's features and uses and adds a very nice clean touch to gaining user feedback.
I have gladly sent my support to JVoteSystem and as long as they continue to improve the seemingly "unimprovable" they will continue to have my support and loyalty.
They not only have a great poll sysyem. They also provide a community forum which any question or issue is quickly replied to. This is great as customers or users of any product have that added peace of mind... knowing that their troubles can be handled by either other users of the product or by the mods/devs quickly.
Another thing that makes me happy is the language barrier in the module itself has been handled and I now know what it says! =P
I big thanks especially for fixing that!
Overall, I would and will quickly recommend this extension to friends and anyone else looking for such an item. Please note: I am extremely picky when it comes to the use and features of such things.
Thanks JVoteSystem.. you guys are awesome.
Hello, I'm sorry but at the moment I had no time to response the posts in the support forum. I will do it in a few days. A lot of problems are already fixed up in the new version 2.00. I will publish it soon.
Thank you for your patience,
One small observation, though: your component is GPL, which means one can modify it as he/she wants and can distribute the modifications under the same terms. You cannot forbid them to modify a component unless they make a donation, this is not how it works.
Again, great job!
Although there are a few bugs, they are not critical. The Polls are configured in a very robust fashion which makes for good stability.
One downside is that this is not a module so can't be hooked up to your site, rather it's a menu item or can be copied and pasted into your article using the jVote button under your article.
There is also forum support (in German) but good use of widely available free translators out there will get you by.
Well done Joomess! I look forward to your module version!
