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!

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 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 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.
I know now that I can do almost anything I want with SobiPro.
Yes, I took the right decision.

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.
