Very well designed, Thanks Jan!
firstly i confused with the component because there are many parameter to edit but after several time i learned, the component is very great. i can show all my product perfectly.
i also give donation for this component (not much because our company still new) so i disable visible link to developer - tell me if i'm wrong to do this.
overall, i love this component very much and i will use it for another website.
thank to phoca developer
(sorry if my english not so good)
I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to put a gallery on their site, it can take a little perseverance when getting to change some of the more intricate elements but it is well worth is as you will have a very customisable gallery. Also.. check out accompanying mods such as the Phoca Gallery Image Mod which are very easy to use and create some wonderful elements to any site.
1)"the only place to change settings is in the parameters, and there are not intuitive as to what changes" - settings called Options in Joomla! are rendered by Joomla! itself, not sure what is the problem to have only one place to change settings? Does it make sense to have it on different places? Really no idea, but in every case, this is more a question on Joomla! developers, not on the component itself, as Options are rendered by Joomla! core
2) "Also the padding and margin settings should be individual" - they are individual and you can set them in Options
3) "I could not and still can't figure out how to center the thumbnail" - thumnails are centered as default - unique CSS solution working in obsolete IE browsers and mobile phones
4) "I tried to use the module to add to an article" - yes modules are not designed to use them in articles - in Joomla! - just read the Joomla! documentation.
5)"so I did, but the plugin settings" ... if you have problems with plugin, please visit Phoca Forum and documentation, there is easy guide which explains why modules and plugins need to have a menu link of the component in Joomla! to not get 404 site while using SEF - this is a Joomla! feature.
Please if you have problems, just visit Phoca Forum, all of mentioned problems can be easily solved and most of them don't have any dependency to the component which you have reviewed :-( :-(
To JED moderators - please remove this review as in fact this is not review for the component :-( :-(
Thank you for understading.
This component has a number of very useful functionality and I am sure I'll them in future.
Thanks v much and a A+++ from me!
The component is easy to modify, integrate and user friendly (Although I came to learn that some users had hard a hard time to understand how things work).
I love the integration with social networks and album services.
Support is usually fast and OK via the forums. Developers care and follow the cases.
Thank you for the great component.
I have used Phoca Gallery around 5-6 websites that was developed by me. The gallery is awesome. Really i am satiesfied with it. I can customize its CSS to make a different looks. Anyway, I have used Modal Box alltime, but when we click on the modal box, all time and for all pictures it takes a fixed width-hieght to show the iamges. I am trying to finding the opntion from the admin panel so that the iamges Enlarged auto adjust to the browser window like facebook iamges or "Photoon Photo Gallery Light" ? I feel so much happy if you reply me.
Thanks for this component
There are many setting parameters but it can give you headache when things like it happen because you don't know which parameter will fix/affect it.
Maybe the extension needs more simple interface, for admin backend. The front end I think is well designed.
1) shadows - mostly this is caused by template - if you visit Phoca forum - http://www.phoca.cz/forum you will get quick info how to modify the template to not be in conflict.
2) admin interface - it is a Joomla! interface, so maybe this is more a question on Joomla! developers.
There is no way to disable the Powered by phoca link. And it links to 2 different URLS's - One for each word "Phoca" "Gallery" ( Author gets 2 links from your site )
Why is this not mentioned in the Extensions description that there is a forced link?
You should mention it.
Hi, I am sorry, but you are not reviewing features of Phoca Gallery.
I have never seen such information for e.g. Joomla! itself? There is powered by Joomla! in footer and I saw no "review" on this fact?
If you don't like "Joomla!" or "Phoca" then please don't use it :-( but if you want to do review, please make some useful review which can help other people to get some useful information. :-(
I am driving an old Volkswagen but didn't call to Wolfsburg to tell them, the car is bad, because it has "VW" sign included???
I have never write bad review on Windows, because its logo is displayed on my copmuter and I have bought this software (better not to mention software I have downloaded for free like Suse Linux)???
Please use right information. There is no forced link and never was in Phoca ... You are not forced to use it. Phoca community does not force anybody to use it. If you know what freedom means, your freedom was not, is not and will be not violated by anybody who developed Phoca extension. :-( :-(
If you have some useful tips or info, will be great to know them - just visit Phoca Forum, it is open to every idea.
But what I did , which way I try.... it failed. I have followed Jans lessons , but sorry
when it works it works fine
Hi, as wrote many times, if this:
a) is fake review - no comments from my side
b) review was meant seriously - then please, reviewed should be features, not that something is not working (if it evidently is working - on demo sites, users sites, etc.). If you get some problem on your server with extensions, please, just visit Phoca Forum - to solve the problems.
Usually, if my old car gets broken, I am going to visit service (include, I will take the car and describe all problems I have) - mostly the problem is solved quickly. I think, that making review on some website about my old car will not help me and see no logic in such behaviour ... so I am really sorry and I really apologize a lot, but I don't understand this review and logic of this review and cannot answer it normally or help somehow :-( :-(
Thank you for understanding.
