- This extension inserts a backlink to the developer.
There are a lot of settings like number of columns, styles, pagination, vertical and horizontal orientation etc. And even custom layout. So it's very good replacement for the built-in Joomla category/section blog layout.
Therefore, if you have only basic knowledge of programing or don't know it at all you can still setup the extension.
The component is really really great and in my point of view is worth the Money, because good Software shall cost Money or all the guys out there developing it will starve to death (I bought the full Version after i have tried the free Version for two days).
But what's even greater is the Support! You get almost immediate answers if you post something in the forum. And the live Chat Support is very very great too! The guys are friendly, helpful and seriously care about your problem. If a bug is reported it is fixed very fast and a new updated Version is available for download.
I can absolutely recommend this!
At first I didn't know how to use this and the documentation lacked an example, but after a request, the developer quickly put up an example for the non coders amongst us.
Also, I was happy with the support, always got an answer within 24 hrs and sometimes much quicker.
Overall a happy customer.
Meanwhile, you may wrap it (plugin or module) into "div" tag. And use template css file to set what ever style you want.
I've noted a thing that in my case rapresent a little disadvantage ; when i choose a Section the Category block Menu show all the articls of the section and not only the category list, but again, it's only a doubt !
