We're currently using Custom Properties to showcase our customers on our website. We are using Joomla 1.5 (I know), and we finally decided to migrate to 3.



We needed to tweak the component to our needs, which was "rather easy" done in the 1.5 version. However, this wasn't as easy done in the Joomla 3 version for a non-developer, so after spending a day or so trying to figure out how to tweak the component, I wrote to Andrea.



2 hours and 35 minutes. That's how long it took for Andrea to reply with the answer for my prayers. That is awesome!



Thanks Andrea!


Excellent extension

This extension makes all kinds of content display options possible and comes with a great search module too. Allows you to search by text and/or by filtering. I didn't set it up correctly initially and support was quick and helpful. Highly recommended extension.


Excellent support

What I needed


Posted on 03 February 2014

I rarely write reviews but I had to leave a comment for Custom Properties. It is all I needed and even more. Works flawlessly so far, right out of the box; has a lot of options that makes indexing much easier. User-friendly and abundant in useful features. Thanks.


Fantastic

I have used this component since the start and having recently upgraded to j2.5 was concerned I might loose it but it is still here and better than ever, plus support is great. If you need tags and tags that really work then forget the others go for this.



PS If you use jreviews this tag system works a treat with it.



Fantastic and thanks


Nice

Very good component, sorry I just formatting the pendrive wrong and lost the component.

  Very worthwhile.


Great Extension


Posted on 17 December 2012

This works perfectly with the type of searching that I wanted and no other extension offered what Custom Properties does.



The demo didn't install properly for me but I still decided to buy it. The bought version installed perfectly and works great.



One negative point is that there is no support contact, just the forum. So if you need a quick reply then you might be in for a wait. I posted one issue and it was answered in under 48hours, so I guess that it was reasonable.



Thank you.


Very easy to use and really the only extension available that was suitable for mass tagging over 5000 articles by topic. It has really improved the browsability and searchability of our site. It allowed us not only to create tags, but also tag groups - so that we can allow article browsing by location, subject, period covered etc. I can imagine so many ways it could be useful to Joomla content managers. It has a simple interface so that even people with minimal technical knowledge were able to assist in the tagging. Works great, have never had a problem with any of the features back or front end, and we've been using it for years.


I was looking for a way to pre-define tags, let my registered users tag their articles with them, and let the public search for articles by these tags - and CP does exactly that. Easy to install and configure - I'm a newbie and had no trouble at all. Great, and very versatile extension!



Just one suggestion. I would like to have my own access levels available in CP. As it is now, there are only the Joomla standard AC's - public, registered and Super User. I had to choose "registered" with the effect that my users can tag any article on the site, when they should be able to only tag their own. Is there any way this can be fixed?

This very basic module shows articles as a drop down list. Upon selection, the article is retrieved. Output can be restricted to one or more categories/sections. Title Alias can be displayed instead of Title. Basic styling is possible from module configuration. Available for Joomla 1.0 and Joomla 1.5 Joomafish compatible core SEF and sh404SEF compatible latest version (1.5.2) improved SEF and added a parameter to handle Itemid in different ways. Sometimes less is more ;) BTW: we are taking note of the really fine suggestions from our reviewers.
