I bought this module thinking it would allow me to show Zoo content in 2 columns in a module. Unfortunately, although there is a box to enter the number of columns you want, it doesn't then use Zoo's layout information and you then have to build all the content by hand using HTML and CSS.

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.

This app is fantastic! It releases the constraints around Zoo items and allows for a very slick and dynamic Zoo powered website.

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.

I have been a subscriber to Joomla XTC for years and they make amazing extensions so I really cannot understand why this extension has been released by them!? it simply does not work upon initial install. There is very little in the way of documentation. I did not have time to wait for support tickets so had to find an alternative.

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.

Directions are confusing (note, they don't have a demo listed for it on their site, the link here works though), and even configuring it exactly like it's shown on the demo doesn't work. Like the last reviewer said, looks promising, needs work.

Even when you buy more than one of their extensions, their support system is a joke. Never once had a ticket answered.

Don't waste your money.
