FLEXIcontent Popular ComponentModulePluginExtension Specific Addon

FLEXIcontent is an advanced content management system developed to greatly enhance the native article manager of Joomla! (com_content)

It adds most of features offered by other CMS like drupal, wordpress, and much more than them:
- Content Types (=custom forms)
- Many highly parametrized powerful fields with SELECTIVE Content Plugin Triggering
- Drag-drop templating
- Multi-Category assignments
- Complex filters in category/search views
- Author management with limitations for subscriptions sites
- etc

10x-20x more features in free version, compared to other Free CCK/Directory components

Thus, FLEXIcontent was designed to manage content in a broad sense:
- articles,
- image or video galleries,
- job offers,
- product catalogues,
- business directories,
- hotel directories
- etc
within a single user interface.

-- This means for the end user, unparalleled simplicity of use, everything happens in one place.
-- Mastering 10 components to be able to administrate an entire website isn’t required anymore.
-- For the web designer / end user / developer, it means a lot less headaches of interoperability/maintenance

Some of FLEXIcontent Unique features:
(none in other component's Free versions, many unique compared to commercial versions)

-- Multi Category assigments, with multiple featured categories (configurable via our Advance Route Plugin, see our FAQ)
-- Multiple Document versioning (combined with workflow and powerful notifications messages, see below)
-- Multi-state Workflow to assist both editors & publishers to add/update content to your site
-- Highly configurable powerful notification system: (Global) Component + Per Content Type + Per category
-- High parametrized Fields(=joomla plugin each) (carefully structured to assist configuration and be performance wise)
-- Powerful relation/reverse Relation fields to create custom Content Item sub-listing inside a Content Item
-- An powerful image/gallery field to create DB-reusable image/galleries or item-field specific galleries with numerous parameterization options
-- Multiple filter apperances: text field/single select/dual text range/dual select range/toggle radio/toggle checkbox(multiple filter values)
-- FACETED filter behavior for almost all searchable fields: showing filter values according to current filtering and current
-- A -Free- Advanced Search view (to host the above 2, but also available in categories too) and create content-rich listings
-- Directory/Catalog features, directory view + a powerful Alpha-Index with character aliases, character aggregations, language customizations
-- Selective plugin triggering in all fields
-- High performance frontend views and items manager, with steady performance as sites grows (**installing on EXISTING larges sites 20,000+ items is still slow, TODO), (and works with full page caching extensions)
-- 30+ ACL actions (e.g. edit field value)
-- ... many more UNIQUE

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.

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.

It is really a very good extension with great support. Has solved my needs !!! Maybe it is not so easy for beginners. My wish list could include more easy customization of universal content (I solved thanks great customer service). Great job !!

After downloading and comparing the most popular ccks i must admit that this is the most complete:
I was amazed by:
1. The built-in templating system
2. The variety of its settings. I really could do eveything i got into my mind
3. It does not cancel the joomla articles. Hence you can use the layouts of the joomla content as well.

Flexicontent makes your content flexible!

When I say flexible, I really mean it!

I wanted to create a joomla site that is easy to update to without going through all those steps.

I wanted to create a website that follows the same structure throughout the site.

Flexi is the answer.

And dont forget that you are not alone while building it. Visit their forum. They are really helpful!

As I didn't try every cck I can't tell if it is the best...but I don't how to make better ! So powerfull and customisable component. I took 3 days to read the documentation and try all possibilities. But once you know flexicontent, you can use it different ways on different kind of websites. The support is very fast and kind (even in french ! thanks !) but so many questions are already solved so I advice you try to find your issue on the forum before asking (faster).
I'm waiting for the next release, maybe with a refresh backend design ? :)

Flexi Content is just what I was looking for and I recommend it to every Joomla user. It's really an awesome extension, it has a lot of features and an excellent support forum.
Thank you so much to the developer!

I have used Flexi on several sites. It's powerful and feature rich. I love the template system which offers incredible flexability. Support is top notch.

Bit of a learning curve getting familiar with all the options and where they are, but worth the effort.

Recently whipped up a new section for a client: a couple new fields, new category, new items, copy and edit a template that came close. Accomplish in 2 hours what would be impossible in plain Joomla.

Over the last year FC took a huge step forward. It was always good and useful but now it really is brilliant and almost complete. Thank you for that shiny piece of work!

+ good documentation with tutorials
+ excellent support in the forum
+ very stable, almost no bugs and new known bugs are killed within hours
+ very good implemented, can handle a decent amount of content and still be speedy
+ very frequent updates and constant development
+ they listen to the user
+ easily extendible through custom fields
+ easily customisable through templates
+ this is a free extension!

- the carousel for the article presentation could need an update to be really responsive and offer some more options for the slide effects (for the presentation of Joomla core fields one can always use third party modules though!)

thank you for your review,

just would like to comment on speed

- FLEXIcontent will be slower than joomla if you have e.g. 20 articles in your site, e.g. if Joomla content component (excluding modules!! or other extra extensions that you have in a website) will need 0.1 seconds and FLEXIconent 0.2-0.25 seconds, that is 2-2.5 times slower but it is only 0.2 seconds

but FLEXIcontent frontend speed DOES NOT scale just good, it scales excellently for large sites 10,000+ or 50,000+ and is faster than Joomla despite the numerous features and configuration settings !! Same applies for backend items manager, high speed for large sites (NOTE: though the FACETED filter behavior is what can slow it down if you display many filters in FACETED-search mode)

- same thing about speed applies for our powerful content module, and about carousel template of module,

- and you are right it does not have the looks of other carousels and is partially responsive, but its biggest advantage is that it comes with a very powerful/highly configurable universal content module AND it is free !!

I have tried many Joomla extensions and many cck like Seblod, FlexiContent is the best. Joomla + FlexiContent = you can do everything, there are no limitation, and if you need help, you will have the best support ever seen on Joomla extensions (free and commercial). Forget all others cck, and join FlexiContent, you will not be disappointed. I recommend FlexiContent to everybody. Best Joomla cck + best support !

As a new member of joomla community i found out very quickly the need for CCK, after playnig and testing the major CCKs out there, so far, i can say that this is the best one because of ease of use for beginners and amount of features coming out of the box. Really it's the only one that gives you so much options, that maybe confusing a bit at first but after some poking around i wanted to poke more and change stuff for my needs (im developing CMS site for company) and thats where the realy great and fast support came in and helped me where i needed explanations. So far my favorite !

This has been an answer to many of my concerns. A great and dynamic extension. However I can't sign up for the forum to ask some specific questions. There is no check box for the "agree to terms of service" and it's a require field. I've tried it on different browsers and computers. Since there is no contact info on the site I have to bring it up here.

i see that you have successfully registered/logined to our website. And you had your question answered

Just recently site was upgraded to J2.5 and for half a day or more the
Joomla to phpBB3 -bridge-
was not working properly.

I had been looking for some time for a CCK for Joomla that would allow a great deal of flexibility without being forced into php or sql coding to produce a result. At times a component would appear to be fine and yet when needing a particular thing, one had to jump off into learning coding to produce it. I have found Fleixcontent to have an astonishing number of possible options and features in its content types, templating and field creation that put it above the rest. And, even then, it is being continually improved.

While these tools can be used with Fleixcontent, they certainly aren't needed to bring about a highly professional and functional website - Flexicotent does this out of the box.

With the ability to create

i've barely begun to scratch the surface of this feature-packed cck component. i was intimidated at first, but i found it very intuitive and relatively easy to use. it is so flexible with so many options, i'm surprised that it is free. the field, type, search, layout and multicategory features of this extension are truly impressive. i'm still exploring this component, but with the documentation and answer-filled and well-responded forums, the learning curve isn't steep at all. the dedicated service and support is second to none - my errors were solved within minutes. one more thing, this extension is being regularly updated and improved.

I think I tried all of the Joomla CCK's to get our competion results and team system done. Alot of money was spend for plugins, elements, components... and in the end we finally made it with a free solution. Thank you so mutch for your great work. Your Support is one of the best in the Joomla World!
