In order to use this module you need to spend a lot of time re-coding the Zoo layout and for me this is just not worth the time, my client certainly wont pay for me to re-create the original Zoo content layout again.
I asked for help through the JoomlaXTC ticket system but they will not do the coding for you (which I understand) but it would be nice to know beforehand that this is not a module which provides a nice solution to getting Zoo content into columns.
My scenario: I run an event guide, I want to show reoccurring/weekly events on the front page. The native Zoo modules don't allow me to do that and every other solution involved me messing with custom html modules and unpublishing/publishing modules at certain times. Basically it was horrible and I was stuck...
Enter Zoo Item Wall. With this extension I can create walls and views of any of my item categories. Either Random or orderly columns of weekly events or something a little more slick to appear on the front page.
Now I wasn't going to buy this extension. Just look at the reviews below mine. But on closer inspection I realised that most of these gripes were about the complexity of the extension and not the extension itself.
So yes, the extension is a little complex. Look at the demo site: They give something like 16 different examples - 16! Some a little ridiculous. But at least half of these customizations have the power to turn your website into something amazing.
Besides it's complex in the way Joomla is more complex than Wordpress - i.e. not really once you spend some time on it.
Another suggestion is for the guys at joomlaxtc is to update the demos. Some of them look very 90's Internet. Of course the css is customizable so this means nothing but the dull font in the Zoo Items Wall Pop up demo, for example, fails to do justice to how this extension can make your zoo items look.
So anyway, if you want an extension that opens up your Zoo items and categories and gives your website some enterprise level management and dispaly of website content then get this app.
There is no working demo of it which is worrying also as there is simply no reference to a working version of this module anywhere:( what's the point of it at all!?
I really don’t understand why it exists at all in it’s present form. Really disappointed by a company that have such good work released.
