Akeeba Backup
Best back up component I've ever seen.

It's easy to use, even if you don't know much about back ups and very reliable.

A great enhancement is the Kickstart script, which made my back up restoration process a piece of cake! The documentation provided is well written and very helpful. Everything run smoothly and worked perfectly afterwards.

Many thanks to the developers!!!

Tabs & Sliders [for articles]
Installs and works like a charm.

I encountered some template-related problems in the past, though it wasn't the plugin's fault. But the newest version is improved and works much better with my template.

I've tried many but that's the best Tabs/Sliders plugin around. Keep up the good work, thanks!

I'm a long term user and have been using sh404SEF for years. It just keeps getting better.

SEF url management is centralized, easy and time-saving, with a wide range of customization options. You can control redirects from a 404 request list, point the duplicate urls which Joomla generates to a main SEF url, manage titles and meta tags easily, and of course there's integration of some of Google's analytic data - which comes very handy.

One of the best features is the 404 page - not only it is fully customizable but sh404SEF automatically presents the closest matches, and its estimations are very accurate. Thus visitors are assisted to stay and browse, instead of leaving when hitting a 404.

Support is also very good.

That's the one component I can't do without, a big thank you to the developers.

The component installed and worked at once, in a Joomla 1.5 site, without any problems.

I included it in a page article and linked that to a menu. Component displays a simple form where the visitor can enter a birth date (year optional, according to settings) and get the readings that correspond to that date.

The readings are edited in the back end, but most important, you can create your own zodiac system where you can define dates for the sings. This is a unique feature, which I haven't found in any astrology component. So, you can actually make a sidereal zodiac and input the dates you want for each sign!

This component has good potential and offers rare customizing options.

What is missing, is a module to display zodiac icons and their dates, for the visitor to click on. Or alternatively, an extra option so that instead of presenting the visitor with the date form, to display immediately the signs (with icon ability, editable) and their dates, so that the visitor can click on any sign.

I hope the developer considers this suggestion, and continues developing this component - it can become a fine astrological component and there aren't any of them around.

This is one of the best extensions I've ever used. It installed and worked perfectly out of the box. Detailed configuration options are available... there is no limit to what you can do with this, once you begin using it. There's also an excellent pdf manual to go with it. Many thanks to the developers!
