I'm also highly impressed with the support - there were a couple of warnings (nothing broken) I found when updating to a more recent version of PHP and was debugging a site. They fixed them immediately and sent me an updated version - great service!!
But now, I've got an all-singing, all-dancing bespoke admin menu, all in a sensible order, nothing scrolling off the page and synchronised perfectly with Access Manager, another extension I can't do without now.
It's worth mentioning Carsten's support too: always quick, polite and very personal, even helping me with some CSS tweaks I asked about. Money well spent!
No - I'm not related to Carsten (!) but I'm a huge, huge fan of his work - it makes life for site builders SO much easier!
I hope the author updates this to be responsive - it'll be my player of choice for some time.
I've also sent a message to the author, but 48 hours later there's no reply. If you read my reviews on here, they are always positive (in fact, I think this is the first negative one).
If the author gets in touch that would be great, but I'm still going to ask for my money back as I'm under a bit of pressure from a client and had to purchase another product... I can't hang around for days hoping someone will reply!
P.S. Was a bit of a fiddle getting the path right, but images/background/ worked - I'm sure you can work out what folder I created...
Have a look at the Richeyweb extensions - there's some really useful and free stuff available.
Much of what I release here in the JED was written for my clients.
Fortunately, they don't always want to purchase exclusive rights to the extensions I write. I make less money, but it presents an opportunity to give back to the Joomla community.
I'm glad this works for you and your client!
I had a small support request about drafts not being deleted when the original article was deleted and received personal communication about it with the promise of a plugin to provide this functionality.
I understand they are working on some more extensions, so I shall certainly keep a close eye on them. Well done!
1) Create a hidden menu (Google it!)
2) Create a link to the Qlue 404 component in this hidden menu.
3) Within the basic parameters of this link, choose your custom 404 page.
4) Set your modules not to show on this menu link and make sure that on Module Assignment, you have "Include no Itemid" set to "Yes".
Bingo. Thanks guys!
I usually read all the reviews of an extension and when the first written one (i.e. the bottom one in this list) is 5 stars from the brilliant Carsten Engel, author of Frontend-User-Access and Admin-User-Access, I knew ScriptsDown had to be good. The double-page bug is fixed and the extension works perfectly. Yes, there could be better documentation and an indication that the ScriptsDown plugin should be run last. Also, if the author could create a list of scripts that need to be omitted (e.g. I use AVReloaded and so swfobject.js had to be omitted) that would help a lot. Don't expect it to just work perfectly first time... it depends on the extensions you've got installed and the scripts you have to omit. Persevere though and the speed increase is definitely worth it!
I couldn't have said it better myself... I've tried...
There are so many possibilities and combination of extensions out there, it's impossible for me to test them all. This extension definitely requires testing and experimentation. Some extensions require the scripts to be at the top in order to load libraries to support inline scripts, some (the good ones) don't.
The boost in pagespeed and yslow is definitely worth the effort.
Echoing all the other great reviews, this component is fantastic and the support is just amazing. There are some J! companies that I've dealt with that offer superb support, always good-natured, patient and quick... NinjaForge, NoNumber, Akeeba for example... so now add StackIdeas to that group.
Thanks again for a great product.
Thank you very much Dave!
