watching this extenion for 2 years now on svn googlecode, using flexicontent forum for detailed questions,recherche and learning...

1.)if i am struggling with custom modifiactions, using the component, and also features request, Theres is always HELPFUL!!, DAILY!!, COMPETENT!! answer/solution!!!!

That makes using this very complex component a dream, and ideas or visions of extented use are not bordered by own technical knowhow...

2.)The component is in ACTIVE Developed all TIME:
feautures, bugs, Joomla LTS. updates,...

understanding how to make custom changes to fe. templates UPGRADABLE is very important, because the component gets constantly optimized, feautures upgraded,

3.)Versions of Joomla compatibility from 1.5 to 3.3.x neatless!!!!always in time, NO LTS philosophy!!!

even Version for Joomla 1.5 users where(are?) maintained a long time after joomla removed support.

3.)the component itself:
depending on the homepage-project dimension and knowledge, offers IMPORT of CSV, alot of plugins, template-Views of DATA, filtering, really something to dive into.

It is not totally easy, but iam glad about projects, where this component gets used and shows its power.

GREATEST WORK, AWESOME flexiteam/developers/moderators!!!!!!!

This extension has been excellent from the beginning. It has an easy to use template system, and field level acl support. This amazing feature allows us to use this as the core of our library, while securing full access for only subscribed users.

Also, the support team is very responsive with suggestions and solutions. Overall, I could not be happier.

Almost any application can be designed through Flexicontent.
His framework for various joomla plugin modules can continue to use.
Unlike any other CCK, he has maximum flexibility and compatibility.
He does not need to find support modules, because he is compatible with any of the articles module.
If you are good at design templates, you can easily create anything is possible.
You can design any conditions through Flexicontent module content presentation.
Thank Flexicontent ongoing development efforts.

This is a great component that allows a great amount of customization. You can alter styling globally, based on the type of content, the category of the content, the author of the content, or even individual articles.

I can't NOT mention the wonderful support offered by the developers on their website's forum. They go above and beyond.

This review is slightly different to most so here it goes.

After installing this extension and banging my head against the wall, looking all over the net for relevant/up to date English tutorials or documentations to no avail I decided to uninstall.

Now you know how frustrated we can get when we spend hours attempting to get things to work in harmony? Well, after the uninstall the site front-end didn't work, access errors.

So I decided to try the forum.

Registration went smooth, but the response was just unexpected. I was contemplating a Joomla repair, yeah, daunting. I was hoping to wait days while the topic got viewed but no answers. Instead I had a resolution within 40 minutes or less. For a free extension that level of response is priceless, just like so many users are saying in their reviews.

Not only that I realised that Joomla was doing something it possibly shouldn't be doing, not sure about what happened there, could be a bug, if the developer of Flexicontent didn't log into the site and spotted it I wouldn't have.

SO, I am going to bang my head against the wall and handle the learning curve, it will delay the project slightly, but, for the response I receive I am going to reinstall Flexicontent as soon as I finish this review.

Thanks a lot.
Owner's reply


thank you for your review,

just want to comment about the issue, you said it, but i want to make it more clear, the issue was that the homepage menu item was a view not allowed to guests, and joomla error message was a bit confusing indeed, about reason of investigating, for us bugs are high priority, (of course feature requests may wait for ...)

about documentation, as soon as we finish some planened UI apperanace changes, we will be making tutorial videos !, but already some documentation articles are being added for fields

- unlike documentation these are rich and/or well done:

a. 100+ FAQ articles, yes these are not documentation, but the answer many question

b. v2.2.0 complete work in v2.1.x of restructuring of parameters and grouping parameter up to 4+1(tabs) levels to make easier/intuitive to locate things despite SIZE of component

our current focus is on high-end (stunning) performance in large web-sites, currently testing with websites up to 250,000 items (yes and even larger than that) and adding the 2 most important features missing from FC ...

a rich (video) documentation will be complete during summer

thank you

I have used several CCK extensions over the past few years. I have been blown away by the ease and flexibility Flexicontent delivers. I plan on using it for several projects moving forward to streamline my web site production and replace some of the other extensions I have used in the past. Very happy to have this tool available.
