I really don't understand why users are so negative:
- extension which is free
- free support
- free language file delivered by community
If the extension does not fit your needs:
a) you can uninstall it and find other which fits your needs better - this will solve your problem
b) you can ask in forum or on other place, maybe somebody will give you advice how to customize it, or how to enable demanded features - this can solve your problem
c) you can write feature requests in forum or in contact forum - this can solve your problems in future
d) you can write negative review here or somewhere else - this will not solve your problem except your problem is elsewhere than in using the component :-(
Of course the extension cannot fit needs of all people of the world but I as developer listen to users and try to add new features there (I by myself use 10% of Phoca Download features, all other 90% was added because users added them to feature request list)
Options were wished by users, so if you feel, it is not useful for you, there are some users who find it useful. It is open source and everybody can find useful features there and everybody can customize it in case, he/she didn't find the feature they need.
Of course you can display text and tags in category view - just use the custom layout, etc.
If you really need this extension (you didn't find any other) then will be great you will go to Phoca Forum page and there:
a) you will get advices how to enable features you think, they are not exist
b) you can write feature requests to help imlementing new features you need.
Thank you, Jan
Developers answer fast and nice in forums.
the feature "frondend User" is brilliant if you don't want to let others come inside your control panel. It doesn't have all the options backend provides, but you can edit it in CSS
Everything displays the way I want except at the bottom of the page it displays Prev, Next, & page numbers as text rather than images and it also has them listed one under the other instead of on one line so it looks messy with 6 or 7 lines of text, tried looking on website for solution but gave up.
Pretty good, give it a try...
Hi, if you mean pagination, it should be styled by your template's CSS. Pagination is common part of Joomla! and it is not styled by component but by template's CSS
And everything he does is top-notch, my personal favorite being Phoca Download: you can use it whether you need a simple download directory for your registered users or a cool video gallery with nice little video players neatly disposed with a download button for every video, all in a single page (no waste of time).
While one can complain about the copyright line which comes in all Phoca extensions, it's something so minimal near the high-quality (and nice results...and happy clients of ours, webdesigners) that's ridiculous to nag the developer about it. And after all, Jan (the developer) asks for no more than some little help in exchange for removing the copyright backlink, not necessarily financial help (such as translations, for example).
Keep up the great work Jan!
The developer makes a steady progress with adding new features and takes his extensions to the next level through seemingly small things that make the admin's live so much easier, e.g. by adding the button for the HTML editor that can include a link to a single download file, a whole category or even list all files in a selected category dynamically... right in your article. And by using this functionality you can even create your own modules (using the Custom HTML module type).
And support on their forum is fast.
