OSE Feature table for Joomla provides a very friendly user interface for you to create a matrix comparison table easily. Within minutes, you can create a feature table / comparison table with rows of different types, e.g. heading, price, separator rows, information rows etc to compare multiple products in different columns based on your variables.
Communicates with your clients in an infomrative way
Unlike other table components, OSE Feature tables allows you to create Radio fields with empty value so the table will not be overloaded with redundancies, e.g. full of YES or NO icons. Also, a separator row allows you to summarize the the same features across different products to reduce duplicated information across different columns. This minimizes the size of your feature table but maximize the informativeness of the table.
Enhanced readability with Zebra Stripes
OSE Feature Table uses a Zebra Stripes to style the table in order to enhance the readability of the information provided by the table. Adding alternating row colors helps your clients follow the line of communication and connect the floating information in the center of a table with the anchored category on the first column. Adding Zebra stripes helps your reader to connect and compare piecies of information among differetn columns.
Easily Customized without any hard coding
OSE Feature Table can be fully customized by editing the css style sheet. There is only one css style sheet loaded in the component to style the tables. If you would like to customize the style of the table, no hard-coding is needed. Simply changing the css style sheet can change the appearance of the table to what you would like to achieve.
-Plugin installed nicely, looked like very professional front end install.
-Not possible to use the plugin with documentation available without extensive support from the vender. See: http://wiki.opensource-excellence.com/index.php?title=Documentation_-_OSE_Feature_Table#Software_Detail_Information as an example, believe me I tried.
-Table can only be viewed/selected on the front end via creating a menu link, has no article and any other support as far as I can see.
-even with the brought version you get a footer saying ‘Powered by OSE Feature Table™” with a link to their site, with no front end way to disable it.
-CSS and PHP knowledge is a must with this product assuming you can work out how to use it
-Products that are free and even half the price seems to be a better for instance ‘Magic Price Table’ which I found later, and will now look at getting.
Overall very disappoint with this product, it is misrepresented and devious in my view, I hope to be proved incorrect but …
