Import for K2
This extension helped me to convert my jReviews articles to K2 articles. My main problem was with the images and videos but with a lot of trial and error I was able to do the conversion. Without this extension I would have still be converting my articles.

Testimonial Fader
This extension does exactly what it should be. You can use either the module or in combination with their component. Their support is really active. If you have a question it is answered the same day, often within the hour.

If you are looking for an extension to show your testimonials, look no further.

jQuery Easy
I had some problems with too many jQueries being loaded and an error due to a conflict. Therefore I installed this free(!!) plugin.

Because for my particular problem it didn't work out of the box. But I got some really great help from the developer. He put a lot of time and effort in it to help me solving it.
Owner's reply

Contact Enhanced Component
This is my very first review on JED but this one I just had to write.

I have started using this contact component for a few months now and the ease of use is great. Next to that it contains all features I need and more. All my customers for who I needed a contact page, like the Google maps feature including the directions option a lot.

Besides it's a great component, the support is also one of the best and quickest I have seen sofar. I had a question about the misc fields and in no time Douglas added an extra feature to solve my question.

If you are looking for a component with a lot of features for your contact page then I would definitely recommend this one.

JomSocial
For me this component is one of the best components I have used so far. If you are creating a community website then JomSocial is the way to go. It basically covers all basics a community component should have; status updates, photo and video uploads, groups, events, like/dislike, activity stream.

The component makes the members (350+) of my website www.testdriveunlimited.nl come back daily, making new friends, discuss topics in the groups of which they are a member, upload photos and videos. Without JomSocial my community would not have been this active. For me this shows the power of JomSocial.

Yes, the support is not always that great but in general I get my questions answered. The team of moderators is getting bigger and lately I see that support is slightly improving.

Hopefully the development team behind JomSocial will now first focus on stability before they will add new functionality. Also a few more default templates would be great. Especially different colours schemes on the existing templates would help a lot of users to have a better integration with their website. I am using a Rockettheme template and there the fonts and font colours within JomSocial are generally being used from the main (Rockettheme) template.

If I can give potential new users of JomSocial one tip, try not to customize the component too much. For me this works great especially when a new update has been launched. If you are an average Joomla user then you should be able to get the component to work as you want it to work. The backend settings are not rocket science but because of the many settings you should take your time to get the best settings for your site. Just go over them one by one and you should be fine. It is all organized in a logical structure.

I am giving this component 4 stars because stability and support can both be better and hopefully 4 stars is stimulating the JomSocial team to make it 5 stars ;).
