This one is an awesome piece of extension. Worth spending money for the support and extra extensions which can boost your site. I have used this extension very first time and I must say it was a bit hard for me to understand the xsl language and how it works, It's a bit complex ... But a well documentation and an awesome support made all possible for me. I have got an awesome support from Radek, Isidro and Sikor. Whenever I have posted some issue or an idea about what I am trying to built , they always were ready to help and have some option for me that how can I achieve that. With those help I have created 3 different types of directory in 3 weeks along with learning and reading documentation.It would not have been possible without this awesome extension and support. There is no doubt that this extension can do much more than just a directory! I would recommend you to try if you have not yet.

Yes it can be a bit more complicated, but it also gives you way more flexibility. The developers were also very helpful to me in customizing the templates and functionality for my clients. I would recommend it if you need something that can be customized! The support, in my opinion, is darn good.

I am not a programmer but with the help of Isidro, some research on the forum and some tenacity, I was able to make SobiPro work for me and create a custom template. I now have a happy client! There are still some stuff I need to work on, but overall I am quite happy.

The most powerful directory (not just directory actually!) extension out there for Joomla... period. Totally rocking some large client sites of mine. Well worth the money for the support & extra extensions that will expand this super powerful extension to give you a hugely powerful & flexible setup...
Shame I can't give 10 stars!!!
Reviews: 7 I point in titele, SobiPro is really best between best of. I read somewhere, that SobiPro is one of the best directory component for Joomla. I can not agree. I try some directory and SobiPro is best of them.
Component it self perfectly fit Joomla and doesn't create any issue. It is not build a side of Joomla it is build over Joomla.
Component it self is free. With free version you get power to build whatever you want. It have amazing template system - xslt which free your hands bring your dreams to a life.
If you buy subscription, you get access to extentions, which open even more possibilities.
SobiPro is reaally complex component, which you can use for many different tasks.
BUT what I do not see in same level is excellent support. They are nice and polite, they help you or guide you thru any problem. I need to say here also thanks Sikor and Isidro, you are simpley best with what you are doing!

As a joomla beginner with only a few programming skills, I wasn´t sure if sobi pro would be the right decision - but it definitely was!!! After reading the instructions on the website carefully, a was able to integrate a database with a search function on my website, and the results are shown on a geo map! For some questions that I had in the end, the support was great! (Thank you Sikor!) :-)

Thanks to Isidro, Sikor and all the rest of the support team for being so great!!!

With this component I have complete freedom over the CCK content.

You can override anything, anywhere.
The learning curve is a bit steep, but when you get used to the xml and xsl it's a dream.

I've been using SobiPro in a couple of websites for more than a year now.

The extension works wonders, the support team is great and the developers ready to help solve problems.

SobiPro is a very flexible directory management tool, with plenty options to extend its core functions.

My only (light) concern is the lack of a downloadable documentation. Browsing the many pages of the documentation online might be a pain sometimes, particularly for people living with narrow Internet connections like me.

We looked very deeply into a few CCK to display our many products and shirt for our tshirt printing web site. We are so happy our choice was sobipro. It is a very robust database that we have set up and since we deal with adding new/changing products all the time we wanted to make it simple for updating and sobipro has given us that.

The support is great and you get to talk to the developer directly. We also like that the extension could be customized to fit our needs with room for expansion in the future. I can't stress enough how wonderful this product is. Very happy for the past year we have been using it.

I am a professional webdesigner/developer, maintaining a lot of Joomla sites!

Whenever it comes to unique, individual request, I choose sobi. My first project was a big directory of nursing homes in Germany and Sobi did not disappoint me!

It took me a few hours to understand how the fields and modules were working, but once you understood, you are able to do EVERY kind of directory you can think of. I now use it for an event listing!

Prior to other extensions, Sobi offers a lot of extras like contact forms, image resizing, qr-code generating, google map, geocode, a very smart csv import/export and so much more!

It is worth its price and they also offer a very fast and mindful support forum!

With SobiPro I am able to build and organize several directories on one Joomla website. The basics are easy to understand and to set up. For special requirements and wishes the support is excellent - fast, friendly and really obliging!

Sobipro is by far the best component i have used i had an intranet that i needed and Sobipro was able to give me exactly what i needed from every aspect. As i was a bit unfamiliar with the component i got a bit stuck but the Sobi Team responded in record time and help me out. Will use this component over and over with pleasure

I had used Sobi2 on J1.5 a few years ago and was impressed at the time at its power and flexibility. But now using SobiPro on J2.5 I am even more impressed!

Yes it takes some getting to grips with, but spend the time (and the money to access support) and you won't be disappointed. We have just had an issue resolved in around an hour!

I'm very happy using Sobipro in three of my sites. Two of them built with Joomla 1.5 and one with Joomla 2.5. Sobipro let me build my directories without problems. Yes you need to read a lot about XML but at the end it works perfect. Currently using it in two languages. Not to mention that if you need support from all the community, pay for it.

Unless you have skills in programming, you must keep away from this. It is not a beginners component. I installed it and added a template for restaurants. Then you had to "this and that" to have it work. Not fun at all. Two days lost.

I have used several CCKs for different reasons and have used several pre-built solutions to create directories before. However, none of them has the capabilities that SobiPro has. You will need to roll up your sleeves if you want to create some custom layouts and behaviors, however it is fairly easy to learn and there is a wealth of information provided in both the documentation and the forum. I would highly recommend the paid version because the support is stellar!

I needed to develop a web for organizing, displaying, searching, describing, etc. articles within a scientific journal. I analyzed top-of-the-breed document managers, download managers, CCKs, and other tools. All of them would probably exceed my expectations for some sets of my requirements, and have to admit that pre-sales support was second-to-none in all of them, and functionalities and quality of products were 10-out-of-10 in their areas.
But, as my fact-finding phase with my client progressed, I realized that I would need flexibility, adaptability and power, as my client’s requirements appeared to be changing with time (as they have been).
So, I gave a try to SobiPro, and went for a subscription, so I could guarantee having support at hand and access to documentation.
I have to admit that my first impression was overwhelming. As I progressed up Sobi’s learning curve (not as soft as others’) I went more and more confident with the tool. Documentation is enormous and superbly detailed. Support has always been at hand, prompt, responsive, helpful, (and patient!)
I know now that I can do almost anything I want with SobiPro. Congrats to all at for such a superb extension, and particularly to Sikor and Isidro, who have always been at hand, helping, and advising at the forum.
Yes, I took the right decision.
