For people not very experienced in programming, it might not be easy at first. But the vote is gained mainly from the efficiency of the technical support. More help people every day and every request. I'm very happy.

SobiPro is a great extension that allows you to mange directories in a quick, simple and dynamic way. I’ve used it in the development of a project for a catalog and the result has been quite satisfactory. Your templates can be extended in a very powerful way. Even though it is developed with XML technology you can still get great results thanks to the abstract class that the template.php has.

+Pros: the support (both in English and Spanish)

-Cons: the data model that it uses despite ensuring stability and robustness of the data, limiting some actions.

SobiPro works great just from the free download, if you wish to change the templates to your liking.. well that's a different story. So I read the documentation and came to the conclusion I am 100% a prehistoric extinct animal, I have no clue of what these people are saying. So what to do. JOIN the SobiPro Club for a few dollars and man am I glad I did. I have never ever seen such a responsive forum in my life. Less than 24 hours per incident (and I have had many). The knowledge base is enormous! Without the support I would have rated between average and good. With a SobiPro Club membership Excellent does not cover this review. The possibilities are endless and the sky is the limit!!!! Use this extension. No I am in no way affiliated with these great people.

I've been using Sobi now for many years, this is by far the best directory component for Joomla. It's a tool for professionals which allows you to customize it as you like, plus there are a lot of specific extensions available which make this component even better. Creating your own Sobi template is quite easy, and with XSL it offers a both flexible and powerful way to display your data in the frontend.

Thanks a lot for this great extension

This is the excellent component that I have used for directory listing. I have used this to list the media in my website. Open source software/scripts like Sobi has always helped people like me who can't afford for commercial software/ scripts.
Excellent work, I will be using this on my joomla 2.5 sites now.
thank you for this component

I needed a directory that could import 900 company's that i had from a database export.
I bought a silver membership to be able to import all the companys.
It worked perfect! Well, after finding out how it all worked ofcourse.
It can do so much it's kind of overwelming.
When you work some thime with the plugin it is not so difficult really.

I had alott of question i asked on the forum and i must say that the support is stunning.
I had some very difficult wishes and they where all fulfilled because of the support team!

Well worth the money and time i had to spend learning this advanced piece of software.

This is an excellent Joomla content constructor choice. For me as a designer was required for such system. Among the various options to choose from it seems SobiPro not mistaken. I join the club and download many useful accessories. Constructing the site with company's presentation and news directory has encountered a one problem. I submitted a question to the forum and even during Sunday Sobipro team members quickly helped to solve it. Really a great service!

I don't know what I would have done if it were not for SobiPro. In my view, there is no other Joomla directory system that even comes close. I needed to remake a large directory website that had been online since 2002. SobiPro was much more than the answer to my problem. As one reviewer mentioned, it is a great directory system, but it's usefulness goes well beyond that due to the way it's built, allowing for endless variations. There really are so many possibilities, even for non-programmers (like myself!). The support is incredible; the product itself allowed me to customize in a way that improved the look (and functionality) of my new directory site well beyond what I had originally envisioned. It's organized very well in the administrative view too. I am extremely happy with SobiPro and highly recommend it to anyone who needs a directory for their Joomla system. (And, oh, I forgot to mention... it's lightning fast on the front end when certain settings are in place.)

My first experiment of SobiPro has nothing extraordinary … Within the project for the creation of a professional directory, I looked for the ideal extension. I then very fast heard about this component and others. After numerous readings of comments, asking some friends about it and many many tests, I moved forward with SobiPro who presented at this point of the project a big advantage to make me confortable to easily manage various directories on the same site.

I pass on the fact that the component answered all my expectations and much more, with features of which I hadn't thought at the beginning. Once the handling made, with the help from a really great and reactive support team I must confess : I Had great fun !

It's much later, for another completely different project and for which I didn't find the ideal extension that I asked to myself: but why not using SobiPro?
I thus realized an intranet documentation center with photos, documents, videos... with more than 8000 references.

I can assure you that it was a real pleasure to create multi-criteria searching systems very pushed allowing for example the download of photos on a given theme, for printing, respecting technical datas and with peculiar licenses…

But…. at this point, I realised that I had made a big mistake !!!
In French, the term “directory” has a strict meaning and I didn’t see its general sense…
SobiPro isn’t only a directory component as it strict French sense of the word, it's so much more than that !

Don’t make the same mistake (know I'm not the only one) to confine SP to a specific feature. This vision is for me very/too restrictive and I prefer thinking that SobiPro is a real CCK in the broad sense, offering a multitude of features and able to answer to very large number of various projects.

Today, with a bit more experience, I begin all my new projects with this question: how does SobiPro will help me because it will for sure...
And even much more with the new version to come...

It's a great component that helped me to create a Restaurants Directory. I tried a few extensions for doing that, but SobiPro is the one that offers the most complete information for each restaurant.
The forum support team is very helpful and professional. The worst: I miss having more templates available, and that existing ones were easier to customize.
