This software is not perfect but no software is intrisically perfect. This reason this software is really good is primarily because of the team behind it.
Firstly, they created a really good membership package, excellent if you want to create a paid membership site that you'll earn a living from and make it easy for your subscribers to join up.
IT IS DEFINITELY much better than a lot of other Joomla type membership addons out there.
Here's the best part. The support that you are given is absolutely fantastic. Any problems I've had, if they didn't give me a solution in treble quick time, they actually went into my site and fixed it for me - superb.
Its beginning to sound as if one of my brothers works for these guys but I have no affiliation to them other than they made my life very easy after having had a bad experience with one of the other membership software packages being advertised on this site.
get it - its worth it.
Thanks for your comment, but did you request the registration control plugin in the support system? In the user manual, section 4.3, we have instructions there: "If you don’t want the visitor to register before the payment is approved, you may submit a
ticket at https://www.opensource-excellence.com/tickets to ask for a registration control plug-in.
The logic of the plug-in is: when a visitor joins a membership, he/she is asked to register first,
but if he/she doesn't go through the whole payment process, his/her joomla user account will be
Therefore, please submit a ticket in the support system and we will give you the download link for this plugin then.
If more payment gateways were added, this would be a rock star.
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.
