I'm not a CSS expert by any means but muddle my way through to have a few of the templates give my website a fresh and incredibly professional look.
The support is great! They took time to help me work out why one template wasn't working and pointed me directly to the problem (which happened to be in my Artisteer template).
Also, the tech support is very good and it's a pleasure to do business with them.
If this is what you are looking for, I say get it; you won't regret it.
I've been working on the web site for several years and two years ago I bought a Raxo product. I have stayed faithful to it ever since. After the version of Joomla 2.5 was released I decided to switch my website from 1.5 to 2.5 Joomla again, and as a major extension I use this module. I should also mention that the support provided by the team Raxo has alqays been excellent and very fast. In each case, I recommend it 100% to everyone. You will not regret it.
I did have a problem (which turned out to be of my own making) with modules not showing. RAXO support came up with the solution very quickly and whilst they would have legitimately called me a knobhead for not reading the instructions properly they were kind and supportive.
A highly recommended module that is worth every bit of its very reasonable cost.
The support is excellent, and we are extremely pleased what this module deliever.
The only little "but", is that there are only three options/templates included, and it might be a bit heavy if you have a lot of articles published.
give this a try dont think you will be dissapointed with it, should be 6 star
Some tips to improve the module is the support on templating and configuration. RAXO uses it's forum to help users with configuring problems but doens't include this in a main documentation part of the website. Therefor the step users have to take to ask for support is too big. Creating your own template still didn't work out for us when we tried to include files into the template directory.
It was easy to install, easy to configure, easy to implement and I've used it pretty much everywhere on the site now.
The support is great, I got quick answers to the few questions I had. The forums are great for reading others questions and seeing the solutions. In fact, one question I asked, I figured out the answer simply by reading the forums.
Definitely worth the money!
1) It may be "highly customizable", but that is only from the backend/style sheet perspective - don't get this module if you are looking for something that has an easily configurable interface. The interface is very limited.
2) The "cool" looking examples on their site are not free. They should also tell you that up-front. When you buy the core module, you get 3 basic templates that are pretty undesirable. To get the module to look like what they showcase on their website you have to purchase additional templates.
There are other modules that are capable of doing more and are cheaper or even free.
This is likely a great module for those wanting extensive control and willing to do backend style sheet/template creation, but it is not an easy plug and play module that will give you great results.
