The interface allows you to connect multiple tables together, build complex tables relationships and to present your data nicely.
You can list your data in tables or in custom HTML lists, build editable lists, or do custom data processing, all is possible.
For the more advanced developer, they provide the ability to really stretch the imagination. The docs could be better, but the support offered in the forums can't be beat. There have been a lot of good tutorials added lately, and I understand more are on the way.
Great job and kudos to the developers!!
Max and Greyhead are simply the best when it comes to support.
Yes this does not mean it is for everyone but even for beginners this add-on can help a lot.
The most important thing is that on chronoform website the support is great.
Chronoforms is one of the best add-on joomla ever.
Once again and excellent product with equally excellent support.
Since then I have built a couple of websites that are full blown applications (an affiliate book store and a real estate website) using ChronoForms to enter book and property details and ChronoConnectivity to display back the details in different required formats with appropriate security so that only the website owners can update the sites.
I am not a programmer but where a few lines of PHP code have been needed, I have been able to find examples on the very active ChronoEngine forums. I am so impressed that I purchased the unlimited subscription for ChronoForms last year and then the unlimited subscription for ChronoConnectivity today! I want to make sure these guys stay in business and continue to develop, improve and support these great products!
You can quickly setup screens frontend/backend that allow to you view/add/edit/delete data from any tables.
I used it to setup an area where my users can add information about projects they've worked on.
You need an hour or two to get up to speed with the way it works and as always the forum support is brilliant so thanks again to both Max and Bob for the speedy replies that helped me when I needed it most.
So, after the experience I had with those components, I decided to tryout ChronoConnectivity to create a page that pulled very specific data from with the DB table.. this thing is awesome! Very simple, but very powerful.
Oh, did I mention this was the first time I have ever used a DB query?? Or written ANY WHERE statements, etc?? The forum on Chronoengine.com has very useable info and when I posted a question it was always answered at light speed!
I was able to create, essentially what would've been a custom component, in about 30 mins.. at that's because I'm a newb at MySQL (Graphic Designer by prof. :D )
And most of all, if you're tired of downloading free extensions with support that matches the 'you get what you pay for' cliche', check these guys out!
Most importantly, lets all support developers like this. These guys are helpful to the highest degree, have developed truly great extensions and only ASK for us to buy a license to remove the credits in the footer. No encryption, to hassles,.. these guys are role models for the rest of us!
Great job and thank you again Max (and Bob) for all you help and support!
The admin area will be getting some more powerful data manipulation controls soon, and I'm very excited about those.
This new component does exactly that: Display back data recorded to your MYSQL database for the public to see.
This component is brand new, and is being developed continually, so make sure you download the latest patches from his forum.
