I used this to: Joomla 2.5.28

This is a great auction extension for Joomla, the support for this product is outstanding.


I bought this component as the website i needed would not be commercial and some of the other components were very expensive. This component works like it should and i have made some customisations with good help from the developer.



He is very good at proposing changes to fit your site.



Excellent work !!!


Great Extension


Posted on 08 April 2014

We are a charity and from time to time we need to run our own auctions. Tim's extension was an excellent fit in terms of cost and functionality. It does exactly what it is supposed to do and Tim provides very helpful responsive support. We are currently auctioning tickets and getting donations for a good cause.



Highly recommend this extension.

If you want an Auction facility on your site look no further.

The extension is easy to use. I had a few problems setting it up,mainly due to my stupidity, but the support was excellent and very prompt.

I have no hesitation in recommending this product.


Great Component


Posted on 12 December 2013

I researched many auction components and turn-key auction applications and found this projects met our needs. It has surpassed our expectations.

*****And the support is first class and updates are spot on.


Love this software!


Posted on 03 December 2013

I just purchased my 2nd version of this component for J3.0 (have been using it for J1.5 since 2007). So easy to set up and works well for our needs. I had a few requests for some minor changes and Tim replied the same day with the changes that I needed. Excellent component! Excellent customer service! Highly recommended!!!


This component is excellent overall technical assistance received by TIM and their service is excellent. It's great, I recommend all users to buy only this component of auctions because the other was an unsatisfactory experience, spend lots of money on other components and really the best investment was with BF Auction Plus.

The technical support was all the time with me and helped me a lot. I am very grateful. I recommend.


I have tried several auction components available for Joomla, and this is the best of the ones I have tried.

It has got good documentation and works fine as intended.



Cons:

- support forum is slow. I have posted there several times with 2 posts taking 4-7 days to get an initial response, and 1 post left unanswered (after 2 weeks)

- the component is in some ways a work in progress. New updates do come with new features, so that is great. At the moment the main feature I think it lacks is the ability to lets users contact the sellers directly with questions.

This Joomla Survey Extension will allow you to create professional looking surveys in your own Joomla environment. Unlike some online survey solutions, with BF Survey you retain full control over your data, and can customise to suit whatever your needs are. It can be as simle as creating a survey category, adding quesitons, then add your menu item. Or if you have more complex needs, you can use this software to do some really fancy stuff such as showing or hiding questions based on previous question responses. Subscription also includes access to all versions of our survey products, including BF Survey Plus (J 2.5) and BF Survey Pro (J 1.5). Don't take our word for it, download our trial version of the survey software and install it on your own website. This way you can try before you buy and see if this software will meet your survey needs. You can also access all the documentation for our survey software without needing to purchase anything, so you can see exactly if our survey software will meet your requirements before you commit to purchase. Whilst this survey software can be used for simple surveys and forms such as your contact form, it can also scale up to create much more complex surveys and applications. BF Survey version 2 is written using Akeeba's Framework On Framework (F0F), which means that you have the flexibility of overriding all the front end output to completely customise the survey to suit your website. F0F allows you to create media overrides, so you can copy the CSS files used in your survey into your site template, and create your overridden version that will never get affected by software updates. By default, BF Survey version 2 creates mobile responsive surveys using bootstrap, and your radio and checkbox survey fields are converted to labels so that they are easier to press when accessing your survey on a mobile device. That said, if you don't like this feature you can create a javascript override for your survey and turn off this feature. You can have fields on your survey show or hide based on answers to previous survey questions, and this is AJAX driven so you don't need to refresh the page to see the change, it occurs immediately when you select the option in the survey question. There is a terminate immediately option, where you can end the survey and redirect the user to a particular URL if they select a specific option. This can be useful for surveys where you want to qualify the participant, or in cases where the rest of your survey just isn't relevant to them. For each survey, there is a stats view that shows a graphical representation of your survey data, and you can control who has access to see this information. There is also reporting capabilities, where you can select your criteria and fields required, and generate PDF files of your survey data, or export to csv for use in Excel. The survey software will automatically create a database table to store the data for each survey, and each question has its own field to store the answers to that survey question.

There is no single SEO trick that is going to make your site rank well on Google, good SEO is a combination of lots of little bits and pieces that go together to make your site appeal to both search engines and your potential customers. This is why we have created BF SEO, a tool that will help you with getting all the basics right on your Joomla website. The built in SEO capabilities of Joomla 3 are quite good, but it can be a time consuming process getting it all right, for example if you wanted to edit the meta tile and description for your menus, you would need to open up each one individually, go to the Page Display tab to edit the Browser Page Title, then go to the Metadata tab to update the Meta Description, then save and close, and repeat for each menu item. BF SEO can save you heaps of time by giving you all these fields on a single screen, and allow you to quickly update all your meta data in one go. What you will really love is the fact that it places the data in the core Joomla tables directly and does not hold the data in the extension, so this really is a speedy centralisation of SEO tasks. You will also enjoy the Joomla config check, the green ticks will show you what you are doing right, and the red crosses will help you learn basic Joomla SEO that may have alluded you in the past, and you will have the satisfaction of seeing those crosses turn to ticks once you've adjusted the settings. With BF SEO you can: -Generate Meta Tags automatically (articles). Our software is smarter than most meta generators which just pick the first part of the text, ours actually analyses the keywords used and selects the most appropriate text. Of course you can still manually edit if required. -Change meta tags (title & description) on single page for menus, articles and categories. -Support for K2 articles and categories -Check for duplicate meta data -Audit your Joomla SEO configuration and recommend changes -Page Check Tool. Check any internal or external page -Robots.txt Tool. Check to make sure your site has a Robots.txt file, and create one if needed. Make sure changes since Joomla 3.3 have been applied. Integrated editor so you can make changes as needed. -.htaccess Tool. Check to make sure your site has a .htaccess file, and create one if needed. View the contents of your .htaccess file -Sitemap Tool. Check if your site has a sitemap.xml, and create one if needed. Dynamically builds sitemap based on your menu selection. -Automatic redirects. When you change your menu item alias via BF SEO, it will automatically create entries in com_redirect, so your old URL will point to the new one. No more broken links!

Maximage Background Slider is a fullscreen background slideshow module for Joomla that uses jQuery Cycle plugin for it's slideshow functionality. We've tried to keep this module as simple as possible, you are not going to be overwhelmed with options like some of the slider extensions out there. All you need to do is select your images (up to 10) and set the auto play speed. Your images will be automatically scaled to full screen, however be aware that smaller images will appear pixelated. Suggested image size is around 2560 x 1706 pixels @ 72 dpi. Try to keep each image under 300kb, otherwise it's going to take a long time to load. There is no need to change any code on your site or in your site template, just assign this module to any module position visible on your site, for example "banner" position.

Ken Wheeler and the massive Slick community have built a great image carousel for Javascript, which we are now excited to bring to Joomla with our Slick Slider Module (mod_slick). This carousel module is responsive by default, and what's even better is that it has touch capabilities for easier scrolling on mobile devices. We've tried to keep this module as simple as possible, you are not going to be overwhelmed with options like some of the slideshow extensions out there. At this stage we haven't implemented every Slick feature, but if there is a feature that you'd really like to see, please let us know. Features - Fully responsive - Image click behavior - Auto Play - Option to Pause on Hover - Infinite Scroll - Mouse drag - Move slide with touch - Optional navigation dots Images can all be the same size if you like, or they can be different sizes (just make sure they all have the same height). You can select up to 10 images. You can turn off the navigation arrows if you don't want them. Each image can go to a different URL when you click them, and you can insert text below each image if you want, but of course this is optional and not everyone is going to want this.
