Bookmarks Reloaded


Posted on 25 August 2012

Do not buy this



now let me tell you why



I was an early adopted because i loved bookmarks and djesus had not done any updates on it in a while, and viryasoftware came along and said it will fork it and make it work in joomla 2.5, brilliant!



so they start developing it, release a few alphas and then went down having a pro and a free version, as you would expect. so i decided to buy a subscription.



for nearly 6 months the extension had no usable functionality and i told Ruth at viryasoftware that after 6 months it should be usuable, ie like the old bookmarks.



i then entered in to a conversation with her where she blamed me for not submitting any feature requests or bug reports to them and she also told me that Bookmarks reloaded was a fork of Bookmarks and should not be considered the same program and so it will not have the same features.



so my responses were to show her all the feature requests i had submitted within a month or so of the project going live. I also told her that Bookmarks reloaded should have the same features otherwise why call it Bookmarks Reloaded.



All this being said, i asked for an extension to my subscription because barely any work has been done on this project, which she even admitted on several occasions, but she is unwilling to extend my expensive subscription.



so to this day this compoenent does not have a working search feature, the navigation features of bookmarks do not really exist, support is terrible, and it is my fault that nothing has been done.



Do not buy this product, they will take you money and not do any work. It does not take 8 - 10 months to take a already complex and complete extension and convert it to joomla 2.5 by a professional programmer.



The original Bookmarks by DJesus was and is brilliant. Unlike Bookmarks Reloaded



Oh and one last piece of advise, backup your site before you uninstall because viryasoftware beleieve it is a good idea for the uninstall process to delete all your Bookmarks Reloaded content, Great !!!



I have got less than 4 months to go before my subscription runs out and i still cannot get rid of my joomla 1.5 install running the original version of Bookmarks. I will be surprised if they do any updates to it by then. The search plugin was suppose to be implemented by (18/02/14). This issue got slightly updated when i complaind which didnt really get me anywhere.



I do not usually complain about extensions but i paid my money after i was promised something and still have not got it, a working version of Bookmarks in Joomla 2.5



thanks for reading this, the search goes on


I came in search of a replacement for the original TEG version of the Bookmarks component for Joomla 1.5, and found this just as it was being launched. Despite initial bugs, the Virya team put forth an excellent effort - the wonderful responsiveness, great attitude, and genuine effort by Ruth & Ben got all of the issues sorted out, and they haven't stopped there - more improvements are in the works. In addition to importing old data from the legacy TEG extension, this is 1.7 / 2.5 compatible, which is a godsend when your data is trapped in an older version.



The one caveat to be aware of is that the only screenshooter service used at the moment requires a $5 / Month subscription to work properly. The Virya team found out about this after the fact (the conditions changed after the component was developed), and they're looking for alternative, free solutions already.

HTML Map Manager 2 builds on a previous 1.5 native extension released by Christophe Demko, allowing you to create hotlink areas on images (clickable areas) and link to a Joomla! menu item. It also takes care of the code for hover, mousein/mouseout actions. You can manually set up the hotlink areas, or import a .map file generated by graphics software. Planned developments for 2013 include: Adding a live image-map tool to allow users to select their 'hot spot' areas 'on the fly' within the back end of Joomla! Adding the ability to automatically enable a hotspot at a given time/date New features are also being discussed - let us know if you have any ideas!

Google+ Authorship for Articles

The problem: Google needs me to make a reciprocal link to my Google+ profile on every page I author, so that my avatar appears in search listings and I am accredited as the author of that page. The solution: The Google+ Authorship Plugin is an adaptation of the original plugin from DeConf. It allows you to link up a contact on your site with their Google+ profile, and use that link to display a 'Follow on G+' link on each article. How does it work? In order to be associated as the author of an article which is present in the Google search results pages, you need to create a two-way link between your Google+ profile and your website. Firstly you add the website in your 'Contributes To' section on your Google+ profile, and then you need to have on every page you wish to be accredited as the author, a link to your profile which includes ?rel=author at the end. This creates the chain, and approves you as the author. What extensions does it support? At present this extension supports com_content, however there are plans to expand this. We also plan to provide options - for example, to show a Google+ icon, to customise the text used, and to hide the link all together and provide it silently.

This plugin resolves an ongoing issue which search engines are becoming much more fussy about - duplicated content. Back in 2009 Google told people how to specify that content which was exactly the same or very similar, but was linked to or appeared in different places on your website, was to be treated as a duplicate and tagged as 'canonical'. While many popular SEF systems manage canonical URL's, this plugin should be useful if you don't use them - or if their canonical management is not working for you.

This plugin adds the schema.org markup for user interactions including Facebook likes Twitter tweets Google +1's Social icons don't even need to be visible, as it checks against the services whether the URL has been shared, and provides this information as microdata on the page (which is not visible to your visitors). This information is then made available via microdata in a way which is not visible to your visitors, but is accessible to search engines.
