useful component

Posted on 28 September 2014

A very excellent component to send private messages. But I think no ACL available within the component, so I can't use an user group to specify only a few receiver groups for system and globale messages.

It would be nice to have joomlas ACL available in a future version :-)

excellent component

This is very excellent component for private messaging system

It works

I like it, because it can be integrated in AdsManager component

Of all the extensions I run on my Joomla 2.5.x site I must say this is one extension that I am MOST PLEASED WITH. It was easy to install, configure and run on the site. It has also been easy for the site members to use. For the past two years, I have not needed to contact the support staff. That's just how easy it us.

I also want to add that while I can manage my Joomla website and a couple of others, I am not coder or someone who has expert knowledge of Joomla. I do just enough to not be ignorant... and not mess things up to much. With that said, "Setting up and using this PMS was a breeze." I wouldn't look any further than RIGHT HERE. GOOD JOB!!! Keep up the good work.

Awesome Messaging system!

Good support, and the extension worked amazingly. Also very flexible as to what you can do with it.

I've used uddeIM for many years and it has always been one of the best extensions on Joomla. I use it for every site with PM needs.

I'm writing this review just to tell ppl that this extension is great, and the support from the developer is lightning-fast.

Thanks very much Stephen.

Fantastic IM System

Posted on 24 January 2013

I love this message system it's fantastic and is great for any Joomla websit.

The only thing that is missing that would be nice to have is integration into the Contacts for Joomla.

This is a well thought through and intelligently built piece of software made with the user in mind. After reading the README (yes, it helps!) the install was a bliss. And when I started it, it was everything I would expect it to be. In 15 minutes I tailored it to my perfect liking and sent a donation to the owner without any hesitation. It deserves every penny and more. I use it with integration with CB on a site for a closed community where people want to keep their profiles and communications private and brief. Great job!

Simply and awesome!

Extension simple and working.

Easy to customize, and I am not a expert coder.

Have all that you can need for user message services and also more.

I am using it in a ecommerce where single users can add and sell object and the site owner can manage and check any transation, UddeIM is perfect for enable communications between all the users!!

uddePF is a Picture Frame Information System. It collects data from different sources and creates a picture that can be displayed by WLAN enabled Picture Frames (and tablets with RSS feed reader that supports media feeds). Important: Please check the enclosed Manual before installing uddePF. For optimal usage your server should provide Cron jobs but is it also possible to run uddePF without. uddePF comes with following plugins: * Date/Time (displays Date/Time information) * DWD (displays forecast from the Deutscher Wetter Dienst) **1 * RSS Feeds (displays RSS Feeds) * Slideshow (displays pictures randomly) * Style (changes the background) * Weather (displays Weather information) * Fuel (displays fuel price) **1 Other modules are available from the development page: * Calendar (displays Google Calendar content) * Mail (displays email boxes, POP3 and IMAP accounts) * Messenger (displays status information of IM contacts) * PayPal (displays PayPal account balance and transactions) * ZDFWeather (displays forecast from the ZDF) **1 [**1] Useful for German residents only The backend is currently available in English and German. Nevertheless it works for all other languages, too. On the project homepage you will find several screenshots from the backend interface and from the plugins. When writing a review please have in mind that the component is still under development. Please do not use the review function for bug reports. Thanks.
