What makes it even better is the fantastic support Matt and his team provide. If all extensions provided this kind of support, I wouldn't mind paying for a commercial license every time. Worth every penny.
Keep up the great work!
The documentation is excellent as well. Very detailed, logical and with graphics too. The demo was one of best I've seen.
The support with a subscription is the bees knees. Matt goes above and beyond what I consider should be covered when you buy a product. He even helped me customize some parts to meet my specific needs. Not to mention the response time. Being on the other side of the planet from him, it was very timely.
If you want a very elegant and fully featured gallery, the $40 for this is a absolute give away.
Great work Matt,
Thanks for being a programmer, not everybody finds their calling.
I do wish there was an easier method for the ordering of specific photos within galleries. Being able to move photos around within a gallery without clicking an up arrow multiple times, or even the capability to have new photos showcased first, and not last in the slideshow would make this component simply the best.
I'm very happy with this Gallery! Very nice software, easy to set up, but best of all: Great support!
I had a problem with output whan including a gallery inside an article and posted a quick question on their support forum with just the link to the article as the only info!
Just a few hours later I got the solution. There where some statements in my css file that f***ed it up. They told me what lines that where creating the problem and what to do to fix it!
Very well worth the 40 bucks...
Great job guys! Keep it up!
I am very pleased with the purchase, support and guidance. My day was saved.
Just be careful to read the documentation first tho as the most recent version does have some issues with certain PHP security systems =[ something I hope will be corrected soon tho=D
Install was very easy and I didn't have much trouble figuring out how to create new galleries and place them on my site. I'm also not a computer programmer so if I can load and operate it then anyone can. The developer is VERY responsive to support questions and the gallery also comes with a detailed guide for install and for navigating the galleries once it is running on your account.
Now my customers can upload images and manage their own galleries without worrying about where to put files, what resolution to use, etc..
are by far the best $ 25 I spent.
Please note, since the 5th of June 2009 the extension has been $40 (US), with 6 months of support included, and no limit on how many sites it can be used on.
Experienced in HTML and CSS, but fairly new to Joomla and PHP, I needed to build a site for a photographer. My client wanted to edit her own photo captions without adjusting XML files and also required sleek slideshows that showed off the photos. I found Ignite Gallery really easy to use and the client is very happy with the aestetics and that the captions can be changed through Joomla.
Initially I had a problem that Ignite Gallery was conflicting with a menu I was trying out, but my support request was answered extremely quickly and I was informed of my different options to resolve the issue. Now everything is working fine!
Anyway, this is an amazing, attractive and easy-to-use extension. I have already made a space for it on my next site!
I don't know specifically what bugs nontekkyguy is referring to, so I can not reply to that complaint. If there is a specific bug that is causing a problem, and a support request is made, we will investigate it, including (if nescessary) logging into the customers site and testing to find out what is causing the error, and giving instructions for how to apply a fix.
