The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™


byDezi168, October 10, 2011
I have been looking for an extension to create a product catalog.

Each details of the products are stored in different fields of the database created with ContentBuilder, and I created a template with ContentBuilder. It creates automatically the articles (standard Joomla articles) in the specified category.

I could also import all my data using CSV import. Using this feature, everything is created in just one minute (except customizing the template for my specific display needs).

I have really appreciated the tutorial video. Watching this 19min video was enough for me to use this extension.

Knowing PHP or SQL is not needed at all ! The extension does everything for you.
Personally I have a good knowledge of PHP and SQL, I was going code everything to generate articles from database data. Fortunately, I discovered ContentBuilder. It saved me a lot of time.

I detected an issue in the CSV import and reported on the forum. I had the chance that Markus was online, the issue has been solved with a new release in only 45 minutes !!!

I finally will use ContentBuilder for my site.

There are some little things to improve : in my opinion only some user interface improvements (UI is very important for me), I'll post some suggestions on crosstec forum in the coming days.
