Great Component


Posted on 06 February 2013

A very good component.

Very easy configuration.

Don't need any documentation at all.

Congratulations for the good work.

Keep going.


Nice Component


Posted on 24 November 2012

The component itself is feature-rich, easy to administrate and powerfull in many ways. Most interesting is the fact, that you can add as much marks as you like to the map, which allows you to list for example different branches of your local business. We used the component on some of our client sites and liked it a lot.



BUT! Both download links on the devs page are broken and which is the bigger Problem, the devs are neither responding to mail nor fixing this issue. This leads to a not-usable component, which brings the rating from 4 to 2 stars.

Owner's reply: Hi,

The Download page was down this weeekend, which was solved asap this monday.

Did respond though - but was away in the weekend.

Hope you can use it now though, since the map itself gets no complaints I can see:>

I noticed a discrepancy between the rating of this product and its actual effectiveness and the attitude of the developer.



Firstly, I would like to express my disdain for the lack of clear instructions on this version. The component itself could have included simple instructions in Joomla itself. The 36 page PDF included on the website is actually for the commercial version but even that doesn't include comprehensive instructions.



I wasted a lot of time simply figuring out how to publish the plugin, until I found a poorly answered question on the forum wherein the developer informed another user this version does not contain a plugin but still didn't explain how to publish. When someone asks a question it would make sense to make sure their issue is resolved instead of simply answering their question in the most generic way possible, which is a common theme in many questions answered by the developer in her forum.



When I finally did configure the component and published it through a menu item (thanks for explaining that nowhere in the documentation) it did not display. What did display, however, was a backlink to the developer's site. Anyone who is trying to make a professional-looking site doesn't want a load of backlinks junking it up and also hurting its SEO. I scroll through the forum to find instructions for removing this and found the developer was dodging the questions. She would simply state "there is no crime in removing the backlink" but neglected the question was actually for HOW to remove it. We know there is no crime as we are using open-source products here but thanks developer for your sense of humour.



Overall, I'm disgruntled because this component wasted a good 45 minutes to an hour of my time simply because the developer wasn't common-sensical enough to include proper directions or properly answer questions on the forums and perhaps seems more interested in promoting the commercial version or her marketing business than doing a good deed for the open source community.

Owner's reply: Hi,

First off, thank you for the review.

The review itself does leave some questions unanswered though.

Your issues seems to be of how toactually use joomla, and not the component itself - since you had to use 45 minutes to figure out how to add a menu link.

But if video tutorials, documentation and answered questions on the forum isnt enough - or to generic - I am not sure how I could get a good review from in in the first place.

Best of luck
Regards

I have used a number of map tools and have never been satisfied with what they did, how they did it until now.



This extension has solved every single need that I have had and the support is top notch. If you need a map tool, no matter what you need this extension will deliver!


Simple, Clean, Clear Map


Posted on 11 February 2011

I was looking for a simple map to point out one location. Found a few great extensions, but all seamed to have conflicts either between K2 or JCE editor. Didn't have time to muck about sorting issue. Loaded up Jan's GoogleMap Light and 'hey presto'. Can recommend it. Thanks Jan


I downloaded this, uploaded it to my site and had it working in a few minutes and I am fairly new to joomla.



The great things about google map lite (free version) is its free obviously, but you can have custom icons on it through the server which is great for me. Now all my info from my site can go on one map and users can instantly see where articles are from, have locations to go to and see where local shops and services relevant to that content. Oh and did I say it was free.



Excellent!!


Excellent Support

Great component


Posted on 10 September 2010

Installation was a piece of cake. Finding the right coordinates somewhat difficult, but then i saw the transfer direction button. :)

I think there isn't a better mapping component out there. Compliments, Jan!


A Google map component is crucial to my project, so it's no surprise I looked around. I jumped on Jan's project nearly a year ago and haven't been disappointed yet. Each update blows the last out of the water and every time I have contacted Jan he has replied quickly and courteously.



Take a good look at all this component does and be amazed. From user uploads to handling different categories to landing pages (location specific pages with location details), and that is just for starters.



I will be a Jan's Joomla fan for a looong time to come.


I bought Pro after trying light and this component works great and dose what its says. There are going to be some changes in the next version and I cannot wait. Great job on this!
