I like this module, tho' yes it was a bit of a learning curve around the intricacies inherent. I would like to know more about the content provided that Rocksprocket promotes so well: Simple...? Where does one find this?
Owner's reply

You can find more about Simple here:'simple'-content-provider

In effect, its content that is stored purely in RokSprocket which doesn't need an article in the Joomla com_content Article Manager, or another provider. RokSprocket becomes the content provider.

This extension is powerful -- does lots of stuff. I have used the showcase, tabs, and mosaic, and really like them all. There is a bit of a learning curve, but worth it. I prefer to purchase a template from them and install with Rocketlauncher so Roksprocket matches the template without doing a lot of stuff that I'm not experienced enough to do. Another thing I really like is when something needs tweaking, I've always gotten a reply on their forum within 24 hours.

Since I've been using Rockettheme templates, I'm using RokSprocket too. I'm quite happy with it; you can create a different look and feel in no time. Some more configuration options would be nice, but I'm happy with it now as well.

Back-end looks great but it uses a strange module creation plugin. After the module is created and i start changing the module the errors start.. Having problems with the extension so early on the installation process i decided to remove it and search for something else. Never have any of these problems with YOO, and almost always with Rocket.. Sadly.. After reading many rocket reviews i'm not even gonna try to contact support.

This is the worst extensions I penah try, create a website so it can not be opened. This force must use the FullVersion. This is similar to extortion.

Everything is working fine and I really appreciate the freebie for this great component.

One thing is making me choose some other component is the fact I literally can't edit the "continue reading", and translate it in my language. It's not the "read more" inside the en-EN file in the language folder, it's "continue reading" and I really can't find it anywhere :)

I initially had high hopes for this extension, but found that time after time, to get anything like the demos they show, I had to use custom code instead of Joomla content.

If you want to see how your data looks with different display option such as tabs, accordion etc, be prepared to do a lot of work. Every time you change how you want your data to display, this extensions deletes everything you put in and you have to start over. Very tediour, very annoying.

The support for this extension at Rockettheme is terrible. Its slow, rude and they will often blame developer of other extensions rather than fix their own problems.

Cannot recommend this product.

A must have module. If you use your imagination you can do big things

This module is beautiful, look wise and has lots of great functions. It's being used by default on many new templates. However, be aware, it has a massive flaw!

It cannot show the first image in an article by default. You must set your image as an intro image. If you do set it to default image, your image must not contain any text previous to it. If you have a lot of clients who aren't that web savvy, you're going to have a hard time. If you don't style all your articles the same way, you're going to have a hard time. If you're upgrading from J1.5 and have lots of articles with no intro image set, or text before the fist image, you've got a ton of work ahead of you. It's really frustrating, all other modules in News Display work by displaying the first image of an article, across Joomla, Wordpress, Drupal, etc.

I've had a lot of experience with Rocketheme, and I have to say, they have some of the rudest support agents in Joomla history. Unfortunately they have a very large Joomla presence. When a company like this develops a much needed extension such as this, other companies back off and come up with something else. Leaving a major gap in Joomla's external development. Not to mention when it's being used by so many template companies, you and your clients will be left greatly disappointed.

There's a lot of discussions on their forums about how ridiculous this missing feature is, to which they usually response "that's just your opinion" ... "we don't care."

Two big thumbs down on what would otherwise be a 5 star extension.

I was looking for an extension that enables special display of Joomla! content.

I discovered this wonderful module and I must say that I have never seen a better one in all the years I develop sites with Joomla!

Endless options and an amazing backend!

Easy to handle and fancy details which shows that the developer had us web designers in mind and that he wanted to make life easier for us :)

When using this, the developer has complete freedom to show or hide exactly the details needed or not needed.

Title from article or not, image from article or not, article desctiption or not.

And every option also gives the possiblity to add a custom title, image, description. Perfect when an article title is too long!

I really love this module and I am sure that I wil use this on many sites.

There is only one minor flaw in this extension: It is not multilingual, so one must add custom language files.

But that is something I can happily live with :)

Thanks for this great module!

Best regards,

Rob van Linda

if you use rockettheme templates, this extension is your best choice, otherwise not recommended..!
the options is really complete with nice backend interface. also many nice layout that you can choose them for presenting your articles..
But the support is poor .. even if you pay for membership ,it is possible to get no answer in their forums. even if you find a bug and you know how to solve it, better keep it in your mind.. because they don't like you aware them by email..

this extension works nicely with joomla articles but no complete support for zoo until the current version 2.02. zoo items linked into current page and it can't detect article structure of zoo applicaions for the secound or third blog app..

This is one of those Joomla! extensions that can save your life if you wish to include fancy mosaics (or other layouts) based on Joomla! articles, ZOO items, or your own custom content.

Big advantage is that it's easy to use so clients without much CMS experience are quickly able to work with it. Custom overrides work like a charm as well. You can control detailed settings per item like image, title, link, description and tags. I've used it several times now and never experienced any problems. Your site might slow down a bit if you include immense amounts of items in rocksprocket, but if you use it for smaller blocks of content then you can make your old-style website fancy within 5 minutes.

Must to say, this module really empress. I love all what do Roket Team, but this unbelievable. New approach to com_content presentation. I love it! Very cool tool now have Joomla community

Exiting and revolutionary ! - maybe it needs a little time to check what it does and how it works. But at least you need nothing more to make a plain Joomla Website extraordinary and exciting. The Cons: Rocket Solutions are complex and its not so easy to understand the code. In case there is a problem its mostly hard to solve. The Pros: This extension really represents the future of web. Every app is responsive. I found it also very fast and integrating nice with many other extensions and frameworks. Its only necessary to think, what it does: it pulls content and shows it in different styles; so if you let it pull 1000 pictures it will slow down your website. Conclusion: Best app on the market.

Initially this module worked as advertised. However something happened that made the module malfunction in the past 7 days. I have tried to contact support without success, and that is why I give it a very poor rating. If I pay for something, I expect at least some level of support.

I cannot recommend this module or anything from RocketTheme at this time.

This product slows site down.
When analyzed with Google Page Speed got score of 20/100. No support either. They will not respond to you when you address this on their forums...Tried on both Joomla 2.5.8 and Joomla 3.0.2
