RokCandy allows you to create complex HTML output as simple macros to allow your complex content to be created quickly and easily with a minimum of fuss.


Nice plugin/component


Posted on 07 July 2014

Thanks for this good plugin! I wish it could also handle spaces inside. I also add trouble to make it work with different values between the brackets (itle + link + text). But it does the job! Thanks!


It's nice but I had a problem with W3C validation. It's not correct to put html tags inside the content of meta tag like a title or alt.

Owner's reply: Hello,

Love This!


Posted on 26 October 2011

I've had great luck with this extension and love it but I did run into problems with Joomla 1.6 and 1.7. RokCandy just didn't work - it didn't render out correctly and gave gibberish. I found out if I went to Article Manager > Options > Text Filters and set my filter group to "No Filtering" it fixed the problem with RocCandy. I had tried fixing it in my editor config (JCE) by preventing stripping of code but that didn't work. Hope this helps because it's a great extension!


Great for styling menu items


Posted on 16 August 2011

I want a span in my menu-titles, to have a second line of text. With RokCandy this is easy to do.


Hi



I used RokCandy with Joomla 1.5 some years.

Excellent!

And I tested RokCandy with Joomla 1.7.0.

All worked OK.

But macro not used switch from category.

Macro work if category swith to other language or of category.

If you switch on support category option (ON/OFF and language) - RokCandy will be ready for Joomla 1.7.0

If you want I can help you as tester of new release or etc.

Works fine


Posted on 15 January 2011

They have version 1.3 now and it really works fine, the early 0.8x versions did also work for me - it might depend on other plugins you might use with Joomla. I am very pleased with it, since it truly makes the life of a webmaster much more effective. If you have it working, there is no immediate need to update everything, as soon as new versions come about. If you update something, you must be prepared that you might have to reconfigure parts of your site - that is why there are changelogs and documentation. If you have driven a petrol car for your life and cahnge for diesel for better economy, it is obvious the old fuel will not work anymore. But you have to be aware of that - no point in complaining to the manufacturer :)


Doesn't work?


Posted on 10 October 2010

Sorry, the previous review is right. The syntax just sits there and renders nothing. I'm taking it out. Thankfully it was free.


Really loving it!


Posted on 13 May 2010

This is a real time saver, I'm loving it. I also recommend checking their other stuff out, specially their free templates.



With this time, you can really go nuts and create all sort of things. For me, I create an auto iframe small little tool that replaces all my wrappers on our site, making it much easier to integrate other pages within joomla. (eg: Serif.com WebPlus created pages)


Rokcandy is a wonderful, fantastic plugin. Once you start using it, it quickly becomes a crutch. It is a major time-saver in many ways. 1) Reuse known good code site-wide but update from one location 2) Code updates are instant site-wide 3) Typing out macros is cake. 4)Many more. You can get very creative with your macros as well. Very versatile. So why 3 stars? Support/Updates: After its initial big release of .83a/.84a they released .85a and .86a both of which changed something that broke some websites. The RokCandy Macro's will not render, so all you see is macro code. This issue is also apparent with some Rockettheme templates. Support for RokCandy on their forum is little to no help regarding this upgrade problem.



The real issue here is you begin using RokCandy throughout your content, and then that Plugin becomes broken you cripple your website. Especially if you're stuck in an old version of the plugin.



It's too bad. Spectacular plugin otherwise.
