Once again thanks for taking the time to review my extension your positive feedback is much appreciated. The sense of community that comes with Joomla is second to none and I'm glad to be part of it. If you have any suggestions for improvement please drop by the forum and let me know.
Unfortunaly there are a lot of issues:
- youtube fullscreen doesn't works
- frontpage size is not applied
- using JCE editor sometimes the video is displayed twice
- in MSIE8 some youtube links are not displayed
- no support (sent 2 emails without reply after 2 month)
Also this gallery has no subfolders support. You have two possible choices: put all images together or create a menu voice for every folder.
On all images is set the title tag "Photoon Photo Gallery by Joohopia". Ok for the backlink at the bottom of the gallery, but a Title on every image is really too.
1. labels are not rendered, instead I get "MOD_JDCONTACT_NAME" and similars.
2. Unable to send anything.
3. Unable to remove "required" from fields.
Support response is good, but they asked me ftp access to the site. Not possible because I'm on localhost, however, I would not have provided ftp data.
Also the facebook I like doesn't work for me. I click but nothing happens.
Have you ever read the documentation of the plugin? It is possible to have any social buttons you choose in the backend. Why do you complain for something that is not true at all (the FB like button works 100%) and post negative reviews, without even asking for support as a "last resort"?
I don't have a good feeling with this "I do everything" packages. Is not always possible to replace the components I do not like with 3rd party add-on.
Documentation is poor and dated.
Well, this is only my personal judgment. If you need a simple way to use Joomla with a lot of stuffs then give K2 a try.
Actually, a lot of people find K2 easier to setup and have running in minutes compared to the default Joomla! article system.
This boils down to a) setup parameter continuity in K2 (unlike the default Joomla! article system which mixes category specific parameters with general ones) and b) simpler yet more efficient template overrides. Just count the template overrides in com_content plus its modules. Or think "why do I need a newsflash module or recent articles module" when they could simply be 1 module with 2 different content retrieval filters (random and latest created)...
We've answered all these questions that puzzled developers minds years ago with the creation of K2. Anyone else who might insist that com_content is better than K2 in terms of content management (and I'm not referring to you - just some so called "Joomla! evangelists" who don't know the difference between HTML and CSS) is either lying or he's never used K2 or he's never used Joomla! at all - in my personal opinion of course.
I've lost the Joomla and Extensions Update Check Icons but I don't use them.
Lacks the ability to reorder the icons and I have an issue deleting items (posted on github).
- google calendar
- beatyfull frontend interface
- search through events
- nice modules (next events, mini overview calendar)
- tooltip on mouse-over
- events opened with lightbox effect
- to add/change events from Joomla you need the paid addon GCalendar Action Pack
- from Google Calendar you can enter only plain text descriptions (or use HTML if you know it). Buy the Action Pack for WYSIWYG editor.
- to change date and time format you need to look the date function in the PHP manual (but is quite easy)
- no docs for plg_gcalendar_next, very difficult to use (I have disabled it). A button editor and a wizard would be very useful.
Also in the backend there is a very useful Attachments Manager very well organized.
The default CSS used for the list of downloadable files is beatyfull and clear with icons for file types.
Good options and user permissions usage.
Very customizable, OpenGraph support, you can also activate the FB comments.
Ready to use just after installation and activation. Perfect integration inside articles. Good documentation (but really you don't need it).
Use this, ignore others.
Maybe a readme file or some kind of documentation would be helpful instead of trying the various options to see exactly what they do.
For c-bob: if you use Joomla inside a folder and not in the webserver root disable the "Joomla!-Jfile" options. From now on new articles will work. For the old ones you must delete the pictures, save, replace images and resave.
