I have now tried 5 testimonial modules and components in the last few days and I am about to give up.
None of them seem to offer a great array of services to be able to do the very basic commands needed to run properly.
Shocking is all I can say.
The testimonials submittal form does not stop spam with either the included spam protection or recaptcha.
The developer, per his forum, knows about this since May 25, 2012.
I would not recommend using this extension until this is fixed. My site gets 20-30 spam emails per day. So I have to delete all the notification email and go in the backend and delete the hundreds of spam submittals in the extension.
Since the submittal form is a headache, I decided to just use a regular form for submittals and then past into an article. Looks the same without the hassle.
Its been over a year with no fix, so I had to assume its a dead extension.
Was easy to install from what I remember, it's been a while since I've installed this and been using it on my website.
One thing that would make this an OUTSTANDING/EXCELLENT component is adding a star rating along with the testimony. That would make it a total complete package!
2 things would be on my wishlist to make this perfect:
1) a star rating
2) use of schema data/ micro-formats to allow the ratings and reviews to show up in Google search results
But altogether, for a free extension this is the best for general site or company reviews/testimonials in my book.
Can you give more support, for changing the title, heading, description. the present is general which you have used. No option for changing
You need to edit the language file for this. You can change all from "Joomla Admin" => "Components" => "RSMonials" => "Language File".
The new version 2.0 is now upgraded to Joomla 2.5.x. :-)
They seem to bicker about the irrelevant things while contributing absolutely *nothing* to solving any problem. They are a shortcut to intelligence in my opinion.
This component works pretty well, I have installed it on a couple of sites without any issues. Thanks to the developer for taking the time to develop this component, Joomla exists because of your hard work! Appreciated.
I like your component. But it has to be rated as fair. To be honest: It should be: poor. But maybe the developers stick into this issue of no SEO at all?? It is a usefull tool, but unfortunately there is mass duplicate page title. Every testimonial has the same page title. If you have a pagination this duplicates again. It is just called as the menuitem is named. This is not that good. Everybody knows the importance of SEO and everybody wants to avoid DC and Duplicate page titel and stuff. I did a post at your website, but no answer. Seems that your component is not well coded. Looks like it is made in the last century, sorry for pointing that out. But knowadways SEO is such a important thing and it can not be skipped. Maybe you answer here at JED? Why don´t you release a fix for this issue? It is known for long a time, but nothing happens. Seems that the customer service is not the best. Sorry for saying, but someone of the team of rswebsols.com should stick into this issue. Seems that no one has thought about SEO when coding this nice component. Thats very sad. Seems that is was a quick and dirty solution ;-( Very frustrating
