PROS: Works well, is being updated and features are being added to it progressively. Author support - 2 thumbs up.
CONS: It's not complete and I can't beta the next version until it is released! lol
At any rate thank you for this nice extension and I encourage others to try it if you're looking for some sort of 'Wall' or Notice Board for Community Builder.
CONS: the only cons I see really is that there is no percentage bar or readout to indicate how much file upload is left. There is only a little animated box to show this. One other little thing I noticed was the pause button on the side of audio file name titles doesn't actually pause audio files or show a pause / play icon when they are paused, playing or stopped.
All in all though this plugin is pretty nice so don't let any thing here influence you into not using it. It is worthy of use. If the above could be added and perhaps even album covers to go with audio files, that would top this little gem off.
Thank you for your efforts gone into this plugin. It is great to see more non-commercial extensions become available.
PROS: great idea for sharing your SoundCloud info.
CONS: it doesn't work fully anymore.
Hello and thank you for your review. As you can see on the demo page, the plugin now loads the HTML5 Soundcloud player. It has the same functionalities as it always had and works the same. If it doesn't work on your side it could be because of a server restriction. To make sure you don't miss anything before leaving a not so positive review, we encourage you to ask in our support forum.
PROS: It works good, has lots of share choices and is one of very few free available extensions for CB here on JED. That alone is a big plus.
CONS: only one (that I have found) is when the modal comes up it doesn't fade the background page and you have to also click twice on the X in the upper right corner to close the modal.
This is a good module though none the less. The above improvement options however would make this component exceptional and stand out even more so than it already does from most others.
I give this extension 3 stars because it is very well done and 2 less stars due to some bugs.
It appears that when a stock profile is added that it takes the user to the Home menu item and doesn't stay on the same menu item the component is located on (in other words it leaves the component page without refreshing). There is also an issue with the configuration options showing com_joomstocks_configuration at the top and COM_JOOMSTOCKS_TEST_LABEL showing to the left of the show or hide options.
One other bug I noticed is that when a stock is added, the Symbol text area form no longer outputs popup information of different stock abbreviations.
Aside from these problems the component works well.
Another feature that would be cool to see in the future would be a transaction setup to buy or sell the stocks listed in the portfolio and as stated in another review, a history to display who bought whatever stocks. Also, something to display the top 10 or 20 stocks invested in and/or tracked would be fantastic.
All in all this is a nice component, but it does need some things ironed out and perhaps some more configurable options and features.
Thank you for submitting this free component it is difficult to find free stock management components / modules. Great work and I look forward to upcoming update.
Today, Tomorrow, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tomorrow, Wednesday, Thursday ...
Also, when setting the primary map location with the exact co-ordinates, the weather doesn't show for that day and only shows tomorrow and beyond weather conditions. If you enter your location into the list it shows Today's weather and then Tomorrow's, but if you don't you only get the weather for Tomorrow and beyond.
Also, when you set a city location it does not allow you to select the state or province thus forcing the use of city and country. I believe this leads to the 'Tomorrow' first in the list display without showing 'Today' first.
If this extension didn't do this it would probably be among the better ones out there, but these things really need to be fixed.
We were hoping for Virtualmin support, but apparently we were the only first ones to ask them about support for it. If anyone else is interested in Virtualmin support please contact the developer to show them your interest in Virtualmin support! If we show enough interest they may support it. When they can support it I'll be buying this for sure. ;)
PROS: Very simple to install and check site security status of installed components, there are regular updates, support is great and the developer takes security seriously.
CONS: The only con is this component doesn't scan plugins and modules.
All in all this is a great component and I would especially recommend this to novice webmasters as well as advanced Joomla webmasters. It is simple, effective and to the point.
Thank you for your review, B0RG!!
I take note of your suggestions for future developments.
CONS: Image descriptions don't show up fully below images and when images are clicked on, you still can't see the full description because there is no image descriptions when the picture is brought into full view.
All in all this extension is fantastic, but only lacks one feature - description controls and placement.
Hi, displaying of description depends on used detail window method (standard popup, modal box, modal box image only, highslide js, highslide js image only, shadowbox, jak lightbox, slimbox, boxplus, boxplus image only, etc.)
By iframe methods - it can be easily set in template of detail window:
components/com_phocagallery/views/detail/tmpl/default.php or can be overwritten with help of MVC in template. Or can be set in parameters (description can be displayed below image or over the image in opacity box)

http://www.phoca.cz/documents/2-phoca-gallery-component/494-options-parameters - setting parameters to display/hide or set specific position of description
Thanks for the great review! The issue you ran into has now been addressed in the latest version (3.0.0 and above) of the component. You are now able to completely specify the form field widths, etc. in order to make it compatible with your template!
