Akeeba Release System
Being new to Joomla and web development I was quick to start backing up my site using akeeba backup - it proved a lot easier to restore my site after playing to hard with settings than to rebuild it. It was quick and easy to install, use , update etc. A fantastic application.

Akeeba Release has followed in that trend and i have got it up and running in under 5 minutes. My downloads are working and I can track them :-) the only short coming is that they are of zero size. Pretty sure its something I'm doing but cannot find any free support / forums and at +E50 for subscription support its going to have to wait.

Great app - would score it Excellent if there was better community support but i guess you cant have your cake and eat it!

Thanks Nicolas
Owner's reply

Thank you for your review. I saw your contact email and replied to it earlier today. Most likely you have a permissions issue which prevents ARS from reading the contents of your files. Setting the files' permissions to 0644 should overcome this issue elegantly and securely. If you can't resolve it yourself please reply to my email so that I can help you out.

Google Maps by Reumer
I have used the google maps plugin in my website to display a map in an article. Despite being new to joomla I found it very easy to implement. I then decided to try and use a kml file with the module on a locally based server and ran in to difficulties. After hours of frustration I emailed the developer (Mike) and was surprised to get a response a couple of hrs later. A few screen shots back in a second email and I was up and running. What makes it even more amazing is that I got this support over the new year!

Mike thanks a million !
