JoomFish 2.5 is the full featured release including several addons such as a simple Router for your SEO URL's. It comes with new features such as the integration into the Joomla core translation techniques and enhanced 3rd party support.
Free documentation including video tutorials, first step documentations and additional material is available on our website. The site also includes an open forum for community support and additional resources.
The Joom!Fish club (subscription required) offers enhanced support options and a range of add ons targeted at commercial and professional websites. These include plugins to further manage/restrict the display of untranslated content, restrict certain menus and modules to specific languages and an additional frontend translation component that allows you to manage translators and what they are allowed to translate.
I've not had the need to use any form of multi-language extension for Joomla! till now and I thought that evaluating this one would take a lot longer but it's plain to see that it is exactly what I require, straight out of the box.
and the only one who was excellent for my needs was Joom!Fish.
I used it for one of my website and I was really impress by that tool.
It is excellent....
I installed, and it worked without any problems, At the begining it was a little bit confusing to find how to translate but after that it was simplely perfect.
After reading the support forums, it seems that this is a common issue and that it depends on the php/mysql combo you have installed, but nobody has bothered to post what versions you should be using to get it to work.
If the documentation and support were better, I might be able to install the correct php/mysql combo to get it working.
Also, it took me a while to realize that the active forums are in forum.joomla.org and not in the joomfish forge discussions.
I also read a review about "just try translate.google and the mambospan module..." To be honest, i tried it and the german-english translation is really awful. It is not the quality to put it on a business page, and i also would not put it on my private page...
With Joomfisch i have a perfect and simple component where i can translate my homepage and can control what's translated!
Deprecated use of Mambelfish. Request URL : /index.php?option=com_weblinks&Itemid=23
Please contact the author of this component/module/mambot with the details in this message.
In the meantime the following function reference can be commented out and translation should not be affected.
File : loader\menu.menuloader.class.php
Line : 96
Function : translate
And for those who may have hacked their site to pieces, installed add-ons, even purchased commercial licenses for a particular VERSION of a component in order to make the whole thing function 'normally', then what happens with the next upgrade of any of those items?
Do you really need it?
Support via forum was excellent while trying to resolve issues that were encountered (and resolved).
The beautiful thing about JoomFish is that one can manually translate content, whereas, other multilingual components generally provide automatic translations via machine translators, which generally leave much to be desired with regards to accuracy of the translation.
KUDOS ! to all for their work on this EXCELLENT component
Over all Great component. Thumbs up for those developers that devoted their time and effort to make our lives easier!
To the previous poster, this is by no means normal, JoomFish should handle images just fine. Go to the project homepage as linked on this page for information and guidance.
