I'm using it for a college program and was able to setup a basic ACL and subscription quickly to offer courses on our website. Managing the back-end is fairly intuitive. There's even a bunch of free add-ons to work with document management and downloads if you want to include those in your subscriptions. However, the product isn't quite designed to handle all aspects of an educational site just yet; though Helix and his team have been listening to my requests and expressed desire to include these features in the future.
Keep up the good work!
Now I can control my orders and control the product interface a lot more than the more generic quickcarts that the others have.
Beyond everything else, the support that I received from OSE has completely impressed me. They helped me with small details that I realized later had to do with other components and not necessarily, however they helped and never told me to go seek help elsewhere. I am new to programming and they were patient with me.
Please do the world of Joomla a favor and invest in Open Source Excellence! If products and support have this strength, the Joomla community can only get better.
For example, menu module restriction does not work with cache enabled.
Check "Cache and menu module" ticket http://projects.opensource-excellence.com/viewissue.php?issue_no=41
You can not test it without buy it. If you buy it, and you are not satisfied, they don't refund it.
Did you request a refund from the Billing department? Seems we have not received any request for this? Also, we have sent this issue to the developers and we have solutions for this issue now. We try to make the component to work on all websites/servers, but we cannot guarantee it until the issue arises. However, we try to sort out all issues as soon as possible.
Also, we have the demo site, and a new demo site is under construction, so we feel sorry that this gives you inconvenience. Could you please also contact us if you have further issues for this through our ticket system:
Now The process of Membership subscription is fully automated and save lots of my time.
Reasonable Price, Excellent product and Support! Highly recommend.
After a rough start, I had installed a earlier component version of the pdf, Helix the developer graciously installed the current version!
Runs flawlessly on all my websites. I am using OSE for a login page for my website where most of my categories are blocked with the exception of Contact Us so that I can now track the members on my websites. Other websites installation were harmless.
The support for this product is awesome. Helix went way out of his way to help me. Great product, great service and great people. I hope you all like this product as much as I like it. I rarely do reviews, but I have looked for 2 years for a front end login component that could easily be implemented into Joomla. It was definitely worth the money.
Please educate yourself on the plugin User - Open Source Excellence and the module OSE Main Menu. If you have used Joomla then you can integrate this into your website.
The documentation is very clear and makes the installation process very easy.
Had some trouble to get the Virtuemart plugin to work but the support was really great. Fast reply to my support ticket, and the developer helped me out just fine.
For example, we asked for a captcha and we got Re-captcha over the weekend. We asked for the user name to display after logging in and we got it within a day. Updated versions go up on their server all the time.
The software is extremely easy to install and use. There is an excellent guide with pictures and it took us only a few minutes to set our complex membership scheme and access control up. It works nicely with other Joomla extensions and we have not had a single problem that did not get addresses right away.
Well worth the money for these guys. They are on top of their software and really take care of their customers.
I personally struggled with controlling individual categories for submission, in the mosets tree and Helix and the Guys at OSE, provided me with support above and beyond expectation.
Great Product, Great Guys joomla, Great Company, I hope they do well and make more awesome Add-ons.
I am a very happy customer! :-D
In a world filled with daily examples of indifference and mediocrity; Helix is a beacon of hope.
It was through the reviews that I chose to purchase OSE Membership control. Therefore, I feel it's my obligation to report back that everything that has been shared about their support and service is truly accurate.
I have been using the JED for over 2 years now and I'm saying that I'm most impressed with this component. I'm not a regular guy just stumbling around the JED either, I build websites for a living and as well I teach others how to build websites using Joomla.
Look, bottom line is if you are looking for a powerful membership component, forget the other 11 or so that you see in the JED, i have tried half of them with little pleasure, do yourself a favor and if you are really serious about the business idea you plan to use a membership component with, then you will get this component.
My name is David Shields and i'm a happy customer!
