We understand that the PRO version does remote data loading (to reduce the local database size) but that means our sites would then rely on a 3rd party remote site to load template settings?? And it that any faster? I don't believe it would be. Plus the PRO version is very expensive. Nice component but not worth the slow down for us.
The support is great.
Thanks for this good component!
This is perfect for me.
That being said … Mobile Joomla simply turns your site into mobile website right out of the box with only a few minutes of install and setup. My above examples are just to illustrate that you can tweak things to a great degree and have a perfect mobile site, if you choose. Or just install and go, and still have as good a site as you would with a responsive template, actually even better.
I cannot recommend Mobile Joomla enough, and of course I suggest it above responsive design strategies. I understand that responsive is all the rage these days... But in my experience responsive sites are not optimized at all, just reshaped. And quite often there are things in responsive designs that don't work or fit like they are supposed to.
Mobile Joomla is free for most of the features. For those who need a little extra there is a pro version. I have needed tech support assistance a couple times, and they are always quick and helpful, we are in different time’s zones so I usually had to wait a bit, but never loner than 24 hours. I needed support once for a very unique requirement of mine. Another time was when I needed something fixed in the core that was broken, once identified they adjusted the source code and patched it, all within a couple hours.
Another thing that is important is to pay close attention to Google analytics to ensure that your pages are being indexed correctly.
hell i love it. And it's not that easy to get me enthusiastic. ;)
THX Guys! Great work!
Consider that Set-Up and Configuration takes time and effort ... as Mobilizing Websites is one of the most challenging tasks today (even worse than to achieve IE-compatibility years ago).
I understand that a more detailed and extensive documentation affords labour time that might be better used for development - use the forum: Experiencing some serious problems myself, the "Friendly Mobile Guys" have helped mye to fix this almost in realtime!
Hi there, first of all, we are sorry to hear about your negative experience.
The screenshots in our documentation are mostly from Joomla! 1.5, since majority of our users still use that version, and that may give the impression of an outdated look. The video you watched is not an official tutorial, but was prepared by one of our community members on Joomla! 1.5 and we wanted to credit his efforts. Sorry, it didn't help you.
However, we highly value our users' feedback & opinion, therefore we reviewed and improved all our documentation. We hope we will be able to turn your experience & review into positive, in near future.
Hi there, we are sorry to hear about your negative experience.
The issue most likely was caused by a browser that caches 301 http redirect statuses (or a proxy between your computer and our server, with the same behavior). We included several additional http headers to prevent caching, hope that will fix your and similar problems in future.
We hope this will help and be able to turn your experience into positive.
The users of my site are mostly mobile. A stable mobile component was not optional. MobileJoomla has been a dependable solution.
It does an excellent job of displaying a specific template for a specific type of mobile device. If you use a quality mobile template, you can get very good results.
Unless you buy the Pro version, expect an increae in the size of your database. Know the limits of your shared hosting plan.
It works well with K2 and Kunena. I'm sure there are other extensions it works well with, these are just two it does excecptionally well.
It can be tricky to configure. Read all the instructions. Read the forums. BACKUP before you install and backup again as you change settings.
Support for the free version is decent. Support for the Pro version is excellent.
If you do not understand Joomla's temnplate overrides, you might find it difficult to get good results at first. Learn how to use template overrides and you can build a blazing fast, beautiful mobile site.
This component isn't for the Joomla newbie. But if you have a simple site, backup first and give it a try.
After I succeeded in resolving conflict in database, discovered, that TeraWurfl application (supporting Mobile Joomla) IS NOT CONFIGURED PROPERLY, tried almost everything - still end up with errors.
If you have access to first version - ok, go for it. For now I strongly discourage using such poor in quality solution - you will have errors even on your laptop/PC when displaying (sic!)
Thanks for trying our product, we are sorry to hear you were not able to utilize it for your needs.
Mobile Joomla! is improved and evolved significantly during the years. Problems updating might could have been avoided with regular updates (as recommended), since each update has a relation to the previous. Your problems regarding Terwurfl might be due to this reason, since Mobile Joomla! does not use Terwurfl as device detection anymore.
Mobile Joomla! has no effect displaying on laptop/PC, which strongly indicates the errors you get might be due to your Joomla! setup, related to other 3rd party extensions.
We are sorry to see you are discouraging others to use our product. We do our best to help our users to solve their problems on our forums. You are always welcome there if you'd like to solve yours.
Installed your elegance template...Love it too! You've saved me hours of work. Thank you!
Professional, sleek and (still can't believe it) completely FREE!
