I hardly ever do reviews, and that is because I hate to be redundant. But this is different. Joomfolio is simply an awesome extension for displaying articles. To think that an extension with such versatility, plug and play setup, and easy to control backend settings and was described with only 45 words (including features), beats me. Nevertheless, I was immediately sold after I saw the DEMO.
The responsiveness, random grid-type structure, captions control, mega-hover parameters, icon links options, and other settings, simply gave me desired control over my site. My visitors will never have to deal with the same boring UI's and un-interactive layouts. I didn’t have to tweak CSS files to make it blend with my site; I did all from the backend. In addition, I can use it in different pages or template positions to present the same articles in different but facinating layouts.
I bought and tried other “Articles Display” extensions that cost more (which I have uninstalled), for my Church website, but when I found Joomfolio, I knew I had to use it. I have not regretted that choice, seeing all the work and thinking that went into developing it. They really knew what they were doing, and I wanted, as a customer/user. All I can say is “seeing is believing”. Besides, my pre-sale questions were answered with urgency.
Thank you Minitek for this great extension. I am on your website checking out your other extensions.
I had some questions about modifying the CSS and one post in the forum led to quick answers.
Great extension and I'll definitely use it on future projects.
This module extension converts your K2 article landing page in an outstanding and state of the art presentation of articles and photos with windows 8 look and feel instead of the frumpy K2 standard layout with primary and secondary articles.
K2 article can be sorted in a grid style with overlay. You can select either the article detail or the image of the article by click very easily.
The grid is resizing itself automatically based on the size of article and headline.
Different gridformats can be selected to fit best in the max width of the browser window.
It's fully responsive. On a small mobile UI it shows in the portrait layout just the thumbs of the images assigned to the article (can be customized).
The layout can be customized very sophisticated. Amazingly the rest is done by the module itself. Very handsome, easy to use with clever presets and every peny worth.
I greatly appreciate responsiveness of this company and the fact that two updates were made based on my general suggestions and specific needs (Thanks Yannis). I love the fact that it renders fast and plays well with mobile.
I am looking forward to acquiring more extensions from Minitek as they have won my loyalty.
