I noticed it isn't compatible with jSeblod CCK, coz the CCKs hooks are visible, but then again, I won't need jSeblod for the showcased articles.
If it would be possible to render out all the hooks for CCKs, that would be great for those in need of it.
Keep up the good work.
One thing though: If your images are residing somewhere else, like Photobucket for example, the thumbnail capability doesn't work. You have to upload the images on your own hosted server where your domain is located for resizing to function.
thanks for using the module, did you try to find some solutions to answers a question: why the module does not work with your site while it works others and mine? did you install the module on the clean joomla, does it work?
A couple of things that would make it excellent would be compatibility with K2 and to use the actual article styles (fonts, colours, etc) using the editor. If the above can already be done I would love to know.
Thanks for this great extension.
After all, a 4 out of 5!
This Module, is a kick ass!!! If you have great design skills, this module, can make the diference.
Not hard to config, and amazing tool to get a dynamic site.
Haven't yet checked code, but give it a chance!!!
Okay, I download it. Install it, so far so good.
Install complete, a first errormessage appears on the screen. PHP Write fault at line this and so...
Okay, I contact the auther to get some support. Same day I get a reaction back. Okay, we are going to get this fixed real quick, or didn't we. The auther reacted on his forum that he updated the software. I downloaded the new version (or so he told me it was a new version), and the problem remained the same. I posted the result (phperrormsgs) on his forum again. Since then I didn't get any form of communication again.
When I wanna check out the landofcoder website I get a notification it's bandwith was exceeded. (errormsg 509). So, I wasn't able to contact him anymore.
All in all this mod looked promising. I'm still curious how it would like on my site, but because it didn't function at all I went to another mod instead.
I hope it works out fine on your site!
Sorry for this, my website system had some problems with the hosting in last time, i have fixed them and i have updated the module to the new version too. pls try again.
