- small optimization :)

The module is very simple, requires no complicated settings. Starts to work immediately after the switch on.

All functions working well. Have a big SEO trouble. All virtuemart pages from this filter have tag link rel="canonical". Other pages, generated from joomla menu or virtuemart category module is noncanonical. It can reduce the traffic.

Owner's reply: this module do not change any links on the page and not makes modification in the HTML output,
AND the search bots not use this module (because cannot), so they not see these pages

so I see no any SEO trouble, related to this module

This module is important for every web store, its simple and excellent.

Great and lightweight category filter module, the best available in my opinion. Excellent support by Fedir. This is a MUST for every virtuemart shop ou there!

perfect module

Posted on 12 November 2012

perfect module works fine thanks to the developer, would have been nice if the end user selects the category and it auto filters instead of clicking filter button

Thanks for give us this extensions; is very good, a test whith Joomla 2.5 and Vm 2, is perfect.

note: Not work the option: "Categories ordering"

Easy to install.

Fully reported category structure.

Worked as it says

It's not perfect, needs polishing, but the developer seems to be doing this with his updates.

Nearest other commercial plugin is priced at a hefty 60Euros although is further developed.

Overall a good plugin and at the price we can't complain!

Suggestions for future

- Set a level to which the menu is already collapsed e.g 3 boxes (allows for a 1-2-3 steps look)

- Allow a title for each level e.g Step 1 - Model and allow customization of box text

- BIG thing - integrate search results with joomla/virtuemart native SEF Urls OR allow an option that outputs a "No index" meta tag to results page so as not to flood google with dynamic Urls

I think one or two of these are being addressed, but after these, this could be perfect!

Nice Idea

This module installs very easy and is very easy to use, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to show categories properly.

Owner's reply: check last version ;)

great job

Plugin connect the FullAJAX library ( http://github.com/Fedik/FullAJAX ) to Joomla! that allow simple use AJAX/AHAH tehnology on the Joomla sites. Fullajax = AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) + AHAH (Asynchronous HTML and HTTP). After(or before) install please read READ.HTML (look in archive). If you have a template that wrote using the Joomla standards, all should start work automatically, so when all will be installed you can go to the main page and make sure that the plugin works, and your site now with FullAJAX ;) Be warned: Plugin may be not fully compatible with some components, modules, plugins and the template frameworks.
