My hosting provider had to cancel suhosin on the server for the component to be installed.
Before that I contacted the developers support for a solution and this is the kind of support you dream of when you are told about customers support! I quickly received elaborated and useful answers to all my questions.
Great work, fantastic component and wonderful support!
Recommended for any one who is looking for a ticket support system with best support ever.
1. The interface isn't responsive.
2. Email sent to admin doesn't show the currency selected by the user. This is a problem if you allow your users to switch currencies and you can't know from the email you get what currency was used by the user.
3. When the user changes currencies in the interface, all previous data they entered is erased and they have to reenter all their preferences.
4. NO SUPPORT! I posted 2 issues on the developer's forum regarding the email without currency symbol and I saw there were other unanswered issues regarding this. No answer what so ever after more than a week.
Recommended only if you can do without the above.
After installing Digistore, I had more than a few issues regarding the store's layout and functionality. Ijoomla's support it absolutely AMAZING! Alin solved every problem I presented to him, whether it was a minor bug or even personal customizations to the component. Merav is very attentive to each post on the forum and each ticket at the help desk.
At the moment, Digistore component is running smoothly on my website and fits the website's design and the downloadable products (RTL templates), like a glove!
1. Each downloadable product can be set to require a specific domain on which it will be installed. Very useful for supporting paying customers and increasing sales by specific licenses.
2. Automatic reminder emails are sent to the users as defined in the subscription plans.
3. Store layout: store categories, category products, product page, cart - are symmetric, aesthetic and very pleasant for browsing and making a purchase.
4. Control panel is very user friendly and allows quick access to all features, including the language file!
5. User account is very well organized and allows users to manage their downloadable products, orders, invoices and personal details.
2 Things I think should be improved:
1. System auto emails requires configuring the editor (JCE in my case) to full paths instead of relative paths to images and links send via auto emails.
2. Digistore functions perfectly on RTL websites such as mine, but manual customization is still needed.
With all that said, I think Digistore is a PERFECT component for selling downloadable products and online services. Adding to that the AMAZING support by Ijoomla's help desk and forum, you can rest assure that you buy a very good component which will serve your needs better than you can imagine.
For all users who need a professional real estate extension: fully trust EA Improved extension! buy the extensions and if you need support, I can honestly say that EA Improved should be a MODEL for all Joomla support systems.
