I really wanted to use this extension since I like how it works overall, but ended up not using it because album management from the front end is not flexible enough. Categories seem to be assigned to each user separately, with each user mandated to start out with one and only one main category and create all other categories as subcategories of the main category. There needs to be more flexibility in allowing users to work with any category no matter who created it, and there should not be a restriction in forcing all users to have just one main category.

Hi, as answered in the forum, this is still under working, the issue is a security, which is very important for open source project, so not every feature can be easily added because of following possible security issues.

This is a great plugin. Of course, it works with TinyMCE. I read some reviews saying that this doesn't work with JCE editor, but I did a simple test and it works just fine. It does not, however, seem to work well with JCK. A revision is saved, but when trying to Use a saved revision only the word "content" gets inserted into the editor. I commented on both forums for JCK and SCV, so maybe one of them will fix the issue.

One workaround that I can see for the time being, for those that must use JCK, is to go ahead and use JCK with versioning enabled, and if you have to restore to an older version then do so with JCE or TinyMCE and then switch back to JCK for editing :)

On a final note, I see that it's been almost a year since this plugin has been updated. That worries me a little, and I would hope that the developer doesn't abandon this very useful project.

I've used this plugin for 1 minute and I love it :) I'm new to Joomla, so I don't have much experience with this environment yet, but this avoids having to go to cPanel, and I think that's a good thing.

First of all, it's great value for the money (free). Second of all, the developer is very responsive. Thirdly, this extension covers the basics of what you would expect from a contact form. My only gripe is that it is not so simple to control the layout of the fields. There are basic configurations that are easy, but you have to modify CSS code to position everything as you like if you're picky like me, and that is difficult to figure out for a CSS beginner. I wish this extension had a WYSIWYG editor for designing the form layout, then I'd give it 20 stars.
