Introduction

Miscellaneous, Administration, Site Management, Mass Content

OSContent is an extension for creating and deleting articles and categories in mass. You can even create menu items for the newly created content. It also comes with a WYSIWYG Editor (enable it within the options)

  • Get this

Why waste time repeating steps over and over again, when you can do the same thing with just a few clicks?

This extension will allow you to:
- Create articles in bulk (Lots of options available)
- Categories in bulk (Lots of options available)
- Link to Menu
- Delete Articles in bulk (Several options available)


Functionality

After installing the 1.10.1 update, absolutely none of this extension's valuable functionality was actually usable. It quit working.

Ease of use

When this worked it worked well. Options, checkboxes, and setup were straightforward.

Support

I had a problem installing an earlier version. The developer (not the current guys) responded quickly and got it working.

Documentation

It's documented well enough.

I used this to: Inserting mass content (product info) onto my web site.

I used this during the OStraining class and what a huge time saver for adding demo content to the site. My only issue is that I am using K2 a lot more and would love to input directly to K2. There is always the import function but that is a one way trip and not always conducive to development work.

Owner's reply: Hi Nathaniel,

Thanks for the review!

We released a Pro version with support for K2 items and categories. Could you give it a try?

Good Extension


Posted on 02 September 2013

Although its works for me but saving my time for creating a bulk of categories but when i am going to create articles its only assign 1 category for multiple articles would be nice if we have category drop down menu on when creating articles that's what this extension lacking otherwise its a good extension.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the feedback, Sajid! We'll look into adding that feature if we can get the UI right so that it's still simple to use.

If you have any other suggestions, please feel free to add them to https://www.alledia.com/ideas/

Also joomla 3.0?


Posted on 15 May 2013

It is a fantastic extention!!

I build up almost all my website menu structures with articles with this extension!

Does it already work on joomla 3.0?


Essential


Posted on 05 April 2013

I save hours of work, with this great application! Essential to add large amounts of content.


Big Time-Saver


Posted on 12 December 2012

I've made OSContent a standard part of my Joomla install. For sites with more than a little content, it saves a bundle of time. The way it can also create a menu item while it creates an article is a big plus.


I used this a few weeks ago to help get a Joomla 2.5 site up and running quickly. At first I tried version 1.5 but it did not work, so I emailed them and Nick responded quickly and pointed me to version 1.6.



This still had a few bugs (Created by Alias and the option not to publish did not save), but it was good enough to save us a lot of time. Support was excellent and I will use it again when required.



Only reason for not giving 5 stars is because the version I used had a few issues and it may be that these are fixed in version 1.7.



Give it a try. It's fairly self explanatory to use when you see it.


Excellent Extension


Posted on 03 August 2012

I installed this extension but it didn't work. I sent a support request and Nick got straight back to me. They updated the version on my site and got it working perfectly. Very quick support. The ext has now saved me days worth of work.

Brilliant


When you pick a menu to add the content items to, it dosn't add them as top if the menu is empty from before.



When it adds a content item it sets the date of creation og publishing in the future, so you have to go into all of them to edit the date. This is not handy if you start clicking around. It generates 404.



I also did not get the "copy title to alias" to work, nor "copy 1st title/alias etc to all pages".



But, with these bugs fixed and a couple of functions added (just need of typing in title, and it will copy to all other fields for that page ONLY), it will be a sweet component indeed.

Owner's reply: Hi Celius,

Sorry to hear about the issues that you experienced!

It would have been nice if you had reported these issues to us using the "Support" button on the JED and we would have gotten them fixed for you. We do try our best to fix bugs as quickly as possible and I think it to be unfair to give a 1 star rating based on a few bugs without giving us any opportunity to fix them.

With that being said, based on your limited feedback, we've provided a new version which I believe fixes the bugs that you mentioned. It would have been nice to ask you follow-up questions to make sure everything is resolved for you, but I guess there's no way of doing that now, since the JED doesn't allow us to contact you directly.

If you experience any issues with the new version, please let us know via our contact form. If the new version fixes the issues for you, we'd appreciate if you let us know. Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,

Fantastic work guys

OSDonate was the first Paypal Donate Button for Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3. It's packed with features, it's simple to use, and it even hovers in a fixed position on the page (optional)! It's a great choice for anyone who wants their donation button noticed. The hover feature is especially useful for someone who wants a full page layout, such as Joomla developers who have a forum and can't put a donate button in a regular module position because of "lack of space". Main Features: -Easy to Setup -Secure -Integrates with Paypal -Lots of Options (if needed) -Hovers/Floats on page while scrolling! (Optional) -Adjustable distances from edge of screen -Inserts within Article (Optional) -Customizable intro text (Optional) -Success return page -Cancel return page -Company logo within Paypal's Donation Form -Customizable Paypal description within Paypal's Donation Form -Standard or adjustable donation amount -Currency selector -Full language file for easy translation -Responsive Design

OSDownloads is an extension to help you manage your downloads. It's simple to use and allows you to easily provide downloads in exchange for emails, which can in turn be automatically imported in MailChimp upon download. Price: Free At the time of this writing, it's the only downloads extension on the JED that allows the administrator to collect emails in exchange for the download (of course it's optional). This is useful if, for example, you want to collect emails for your newsletter or if you want to collect emails so that the users who download can be notified later via email. This method gets rid of "Registration require to download" if you simply want to collect emails. At the time of this writing, it's the only downloads extension on the JED that collects emails and imports them into MailChimp (of course it's optional). Features: - Provide Downloads - Collect Emails (optional) - MailChimp integration (optional) - Nested Categories - Add a before and after description (both optional and both use the WYSIWYG editor that you have installed on your site which makes it very nice for your clients to use) - Add an Agreement or Terms of Service (optional) - Add a documentation link (optional) - Add a demo link (optional) - Add a support link (optional) - A lightbox is used for the download. - Search Engine Friendly - Basic stats...more will be added in the future - Add a menu for one or multiple categories of files - Add a menu for a single file We are planning on adding a lot of new features if there is interest in the extension. If you have any requests, be sure to let us know. Also, we would love to build a custom solution for your business or your clients if you need it and are willing to sponsor us.

OSMeta is a metadata manager for Joomla sites. We created OSMeta because we couldn't find a metadata extension that was simple and usable enough for our needs. OSMeta should definitely be in your SEO toolbox. OSMeta is ridiculously simple. Don't expect complicated features. Just expect it to be reliable and easy-to-use. It allows you to add metadata to all your article via a single screen, which makes editing fast. Both title and description meta data are available to you: Title: This title is shown in search engine results and in the browser. It should be no more than 70 characters long. Description: This description is not seen by users but can be shown in search engine results. This should be no longer than 160 characters. We've also added a character counter to make it easy to see when a text is just right or too long. Next, we'll be adding front-end editing. After that we're planning on adding a scoring system to show which items need the most work.

OSpam-a-not is the easiest way to protect your site from spam. OSpam-a-not uses two unobtrusive techniques to protect your forms from a flood of spam. First, OSpam-a-not uses a Time Gate. This is a hidden timestamp that records how long it took to fill in a form. If the form was submitted more quickly than humanly possible, we can block the submission. Second, OSpam-a-not uses a Honey Pot. A text field is added to the form and hidden by adding a style tag at the end of the document head tag. It isn't visible to a human user, but a spambot doesn't see that and fills in the field anyway. If we find anything at all in that field when the form is submitted, we've caught a spambot in the honey pot! And the form is blocked.
