Portfolio Zen pulls images and paragraphs from articles in the Article Manager to create an attractive slide show of portfolio work. Setting it up is as simple as creating a section for portfolio works, categories for navigation, and articles for portfolio pieces in each category. Portfolio Zen currently has two distinct layouts with more on the way. The extension is mobile and tablet friendly and uses no flash.

Bug fix for image paths that affected some article editors.

I'd been looking for a way to layout a group of images in a Yearbook kind of style. I stumbled across this extension and liked its look. Once installed (simple), I looked at the second option for the Kite layout. Loved it, using it, and will us it again.

This is an excellent component and I thank the author for this.

But contrary to the author's claim that the external JS has now been integrated with the component, the latest download still has JS being pulled from aolcdn.

Also, the width of the slideshow seems to have been hardcoded (500px). Even when I modified the script to a different width, it resets to 500px when the JS executes.

I hope the author can fix this.

Owner's reply: Portfolio Zen initially shipped with a stylesheet that was leeching from the Dojo project. This was an error I made in migrating from development to production and was what I was referring to by correcting the external links.

Portfolio Zen makes use of AOL's cdn because cdn's are faster for loading javascript frameworks.

Relating to the width issue, I'm currently working on an updated version that will be more flexible in regards to the images sizes. I'm also adding another layout and may include the option of using a local version of dojo vs a cdn. I expect to have it done and on the website by the new year.

Thanks for using Portfolio Zen and taking the time to write your review!

Very Nice and simple

this component is really excellent to me, very simple, many components add an unneeded tools and panels, however, making it inside joomla's sections and category makes it highly customizable a bit of files editing and css/javascript knowledge will do the job, lightweight and exellent, hope i donate when i get the chance too...ready to support in the meantime.

I have found this extension useful to display a portfolio of websites that our web design company has worked on. The only reason this doesn't receive 5 out of 5 stars is because it doesn't (currently) work with our sh404SEF extension i.e. doesn't have a search engine friendly url.

Despite the lack of SEF support this extension works great.

Web Fonts is a component and plugin that enables Joomla! web designers to easily integrate pretty fonts in their template. The extension browses, selects, imports, and assigns selectors to fonts provided by third party services. See it in action on YouTube: Currently, both the Google Web Fonts service and the service are integrated (over 16,800 free and commercial fonts). If you like the extension, please write a review and help spread the word! The more support the project receives the more likely it will be developed further to include other services (Typekit, Myfonts, etc.) The extension is language ready, but currently only has English translations. However the fonts available are for a wide variety of character sets (Khmer, Japanese, Arabic, Cyrillic, Greek, etc. etc.) **Important: Both the component and plugin must be installed and enabled. The extension's interface on the admin side supports IE9 and IE8 and current versions of FF, Chrome, Safari, and Opera. The fonts are all managed through the component interface, however users must at least have a base understanding of CSS rules.

Mail in Vote helps you Get Answers. It works by sending polls to your users over email. Unlike on-site polls, your questions can be exactly crafted within the context of an email message to answer the questions you have. It's also much more likely to elicit a response because your questions land directly in their inbox and all they have to do is click a link to answer. This flips polling on its head from a diversion to a valuable tool for gaining user intelligence. Watch a screencast of it in action:
