Robert Gastaud, the developer of the latest iteration of the plugin, has done the Joomla community a great service by updating this extremely useful plugin to backup your Joomla databases.
We use it for all our sites to automatically backup the database once a week by email, which we use for our local backups running on WAMP.
A big thanks to both developers for writing such a high quality and reliable piece of software.
Many thanks for your review, Gmaassen
One request to the developer: Can you please as an example insert for new users info for one tab with a path to the image and the home page. I tried five module positions, but did not see the tabs on the site. It took me a while to figure out that you first need to fill out the path to the image and the link before the tab is shown on the site.
Great work. We give five stars to the developer.
Dear Gmaassen, Thanks for your kind review and suggestion regarding a default set-up for one of the tabs. I started out with this feature but took it away for a number of reasons. Will look into improving the documentations for this with the next release.
We hope the developer will add a contact option or a forum on the developer's site and clarify the syntax further with more detailed examples (what do we need to insert between the tags to replace the "...").
We tested the plugin documentation extensively and it is excellent. There are no typos in example tags, everything works directly out of the box and clear examples are provided that can be copied and pasted for instant gratification.
We are also impressed how fast the graphs load and that you can link them directly to Joomla databases. This is a great feature that enables you to do more with your databases.
We give this plugin and its developer 5 stars for building upon the powerful FlashCharts framework, acknowledging the exceptional work of the FlashChart developers, the first-rate documentation of the plugin and the ease of using the plugin.
The problem: I kept on running into the auto cleanup functionality of tinymce when I inserted scripts in pages. I looked for a solution to keep my scripts in an article while using tinymce.
The solution: Sourcerer. I no longer have to switch between editors, I can use tinymce and my scripts work. Just place the code between two tags in the editor and you are set. No need to switch to the html viewer. Thanks Nonumber.
Thanks to the developers.
The graphic presentation is great and the plugin works out of the box. Really fantastic.
One of the best plugins we have seen!!! If we could give it 6 stars, we would.
Wish list: To be able to set a default template that is loaded in the article automatically for articles in a certain category - in the current version, users need to select a template from a drop down under the editor first.
This extension is excellent.
Thanks for your review.
Content Templater is an editor button. |This basically means that it is activated once you click on it. It would be pretty tough to make it automatically place text end such as soon as the page is opened. It is probably posible, but I'm not sure I'm going to do it, because it has some drawbacks too.
The developers provide a very useful list of style examples in the plug in. You just copy and paste the syntax into your article and voila, it works.
After some trial and error, and checking the forums, I found out that IE7 renders the code differently than FF. Some styles work in both browsers (quotes), while other styles seem to generate problems with IE7(rounded boxes) - or perhaps it is better to say that IE7 is creating the problems, because it works with FF.
The solution is incredibly simple: When you copy and paste the code from the examples in the plug in, the typo coding syntax is in bold characters. This seems to be a problem for IE7. Just make sure the code you place in your article is not in bold and the styles work in FF and IE7!!!
Two thumbs for the developers.
