Great CCK

Functionality

Create as many content type and layout as you need. Great display with Widgetkit and even more with Zoolanders ZooPro content

Ease of use

It's easy to setup. It's better if you have html & php knowledge to modify and create new render template but you can use it without

Support

They answered my question each time I needed, what I else can I expect ?

Documentation

Good enough


Functionality

Incredible. I almost wish Joomla! would fold it into the core. There are tiny flaws if you look close, but Zoo adds a world of possabilities

Ease of use

I found usage to be very intuitive. If you get REALLY in depth you need to take the training wheels off, but pretty easy to get rolling.

Support

The support could be a little more responsive, but for a free extension I'd say it's pretty solid.

Documentation

Solid documentation. If you run into a snag, there is a searchable forum that can usually solve your issue.

I used this to: My website, along with a few clients. If you need to build a relatively large site, Zoo is really one of the best options around.

Functionality

Mediocre

Ease of use

Steep learning curve as poorly documented and supported.

Support

Truly awful support. First option is to blame the user. Forget about getting any support at all if you develop on and off line system.

Documentation

Poorly writtn and very sparse.

I used this to: I dont use it anymore, not worth the effort.

Functionality

Awesome

Ease of use

I find it really easy.

Support

It's good when you pay.

Documentation

It's decent

I used this to: Every website I make using joomla.

Functionality

Can build anything assuming you are willing to make few compromises. Or you can always buy pro elements.

Ease of use

Once you understand the logic, or rather absence of it, it's not so bad.

Support

Supp-what? You are on your own. Lack of documentation and support would be the reson for me to give up on it if I'd have to start again.

Documentation

Outdated and mostly written in confusing manner lacking crucial details.

I used this to: Real estate agency web site.

Functionality

This is a very flexible tool that has allowed me to do a lot of things that I would have otherwise had to have done painstakingly by hand.

Ease of use

Not particularly user friendly. The functionality is a little obtuse and unintuitive.

Support

Non-existent! For the most expensive set of extensions on the market, timely and helpful support is not an option.

Documentation

Out of date, and typically leaves out small but crucial pieces of information. They'll tell you what PHP code to insert, but not where.


Functionality

You have to know a bit php if you want to do custom stuff. It's better if you use some other elements. Integration with widgetkit is good!

Ease of use

Well, once you know how it works it ok but it's not very intuitive

Support

Support not bad and fast for what I needed

Documentation

Good documentation but no help or tips in the soft itself as usual with Yootheme...

I used this to: Many sites!

Functionality

You can make virtually anything with this kit, especially if you know PHP. Though lack of integration with Joomla restricts it somewhat.

Ease of use

Very easy to use and customize.

Documentation

Very good and thorough.

I used this to: My website.

Functionality

It can be built, blogs, news, links divisive, etc.

Ease of use

Easy to learn quickly

Support

Unfortunately, few support

Documentation

Lots of useful information

I used this to: She loved to use. Tell everyone!

Functionality

Multiple apps and the ability to add my own apps is great. I wish there was more elements.

Ease of use

Very easy to use and nice.

Support

A little lacking, it's hit or miss to get support on their forums. I would gladly pay more for better support.

Documentation

Pretty good, but not complete.

I used this to: Multiple Client's Websites and they are happy.
