Functionality

Sobipro is very powerful component with tons of features - I am using the SobiPackages template and it does exactly what I wanted to achieve

Ease of use

It was a bit hard at the beginning as my coding skills is limited but with the help of support and the forums I managed.

Support

I raised a few helpdesk requests and the response was tops. Sikor even accessed my website to help me with some issues. The support is tops

Documentation

The documents are easy to use as it explains step by step what to do.

I used this to: I am using it for Business Listings in KwaZulu Natal - South Africa.

Functionality

This is a great extension. With some help and after learning few tricks from the support I managed to build my site exactly as I pictured it

Ease of use

for me it was quite much to take in at first since my coding skills are really limited but with the help of staff I learned alot

Support

Outstanding. The support staff is helpfull and patient. They are for sure top 3 support I have recieved from a joomla product developer.

Documentation

Documentation is good. though some screenshots are outdated but it gets the job done!

I used this to: A website with a company listing that has 2 sectinos linked togeather, one for company info and one for offices linked to company. Also the website has a information "bank" where the third sobipro section is set up with a great user interface for my users.

Functionality

Tons of built-in features and very very flexible. It designed on XSL templates so you can change anything and also include your own PHP

Ease of use

Takes a little while to understand the structure and set up

Support

I've signed up for silver membership (72 Euros). Raised three helpdesk requests and the response was great. They even created code samples

Documentation

Only available via paid subscription but there's a ton of documentation

I used this to: I've created a free rent 4 chores website in under 5 days. It's a houseshare listing service for people to advertise their spare room rent free in return for the house mate doing chores such as shopping, cleaning etc. I've even managed to included Google directions using XSL

Functionality

SobiPro is an extension that has a TON of power and functionality but it is at a level that it is a hindrance rather than a feature.

Ease of use

Not easy. Structure is arbitrary, theme system complicated and clunky, modifications get overwritten on updating. Overall, Messy component.

Support

Support is AWFUL for free users. The developers completely ignore you. Your only hope is fellow users in community support.

Documentation

The worst idea ever, to restrict the documentation to people who pay for the extension. You can't fully understand to use it unless you pay.

I used this to: I purchased SodiPro actually so I gained access to the documentation and I built multiple sites using it, like a Jobs Board, Product Listings, Portfolios, etc. I have tested it thoroughly and it is pretty much terrible. Requires excessive effort, for not much benefit. - Avoid SP

Awesome!

Functionality

This is the component for you if you have the need for a directory on your site. Sobipro allows you to list entries and visitors to rate.

Ease of use

Easy to use and very flexible with custom fields and powerful searching.

Support

Support is very responsive with a large forum of users.

Documentation

I do wish that the documentation was accessible to non-subscribers, but it is easy to use.

I used this to: I use Sobi as a business directory where people can see businesses by category. It can also be used to allow businesses to update their own business and feature their business or add detail. You can also charge businesses to add certain detail. Very flexible and powerful.

Functionality

Sobipro is very powerful component, but unfortunately is extremely slow!

Documentation

Excellent!!!!

As far since de the beggining, been using Sobipro, people at support is the best! they always have a solution to everything and the time wich is always running for non working things is awesome! A good tool to implement due to its great support team!



Thx u guys there! Sobi is far the best directory for joomla!


Sobipro continues to amaze me to be honest. When I think a function doesn't exist its just that I haven't used it yet...out of the box the power is unbeatable. I've built Joomla sites for years and with the move into responsive sites Sobipro welcomes that task and produces amazing results. With a little knowledge and help from the support guys you can build an extremely powerful and functional site. Templating is easy to style to your own designs and the field manager alone has every option you could ever need. Need a field that the user inputs but doesn't need to be shown on front end...that's easy! Need to show all entries from a specific person or company..that's easy. I could go on. Download it, install it and play with it. I am positive there is no better solution out there. It's not 'just' a directory component..it is so much more. Support is awesome. These guys on the forum know there stuff. Quick, concise and targeted replies means my questions are answered easily. Building with Sobipro gives me confidence when handing the site over to my client. Intuitive and easy to administrate. Thanks for building an awesome component!


Very good component
