The install worked straight off which is always a good sign and the cost of the component didn't break the piggy bank, which is another fantastic point.
Where do I start.... The Ratings button in Chrome and Firefox does not show as a Star rating it looks more like poached egg rating, not very clear.
I thought for a commercial component we could at least have 3-4 variations of what we would like for a rating button.
It is kind of embarrassing to be honest. On your own website you have these lovely stars for ratings but the actual unit you buy does not come with them!!
I also think you have missed a few tricks. You have added "author" when this would of looked better as First Name and Last Name" and you have also not added a website link form, so the admin person of the site must add it manually.
Also why did you add "Allow Subscriptions" When this is obviously "Add Feedback or Add Testimonial" I think it has confused people... and to me it does not make sense.
I wish I could be more positive but It has taken me two hours to load all of my client testimonials into my website, when it could of been half that time if the component worked better.
It has potential, but needs work.
Hi - thanks for the review. Just so you know, the rating system uses the system star image and can easily be changed at the template level. Regarding the 'author' and 'subscription' text - this can be changed in minutes by creating language overrides. We have support forums and we're happy to help - all you have to do is ask!
I have now tried 5 testimonial modules and components in the last few days and I am about to give up.
None of them seem to offer a great array of services to be able to do the very basic commands needed to run properly.
Shocking is all I can say.
Don't get me wrong, it works well but you cannot add a logo or an attachment and there is no editor in it either, so you cannot even bold, italic or highlight text. there are much better ones out there to use.
Very impressive and for only £6.50 I have a wonderful image and program that not only looks good, but is flawless.
I do however agree with the other reviewers that this is by far the best SEF software available for Joomla based websites, but in my opinion it could be better with less glitches, especially as it is a paid for component.
I run a business so I don't always have time to go on the support forums, but I do expect something to work when I have paid for it which is why I tested it on 3 different websites and not just one.
It is a good component, but needs work.
If their was a Joomla rating above Excellent, yours would be that!
The whole process was superb. My only critique would be that you had to unzip the file and then individually install each section. So 1 component, 3 modules and 4 plugins.
This should be simplified with a one click multi install as this would be a lot easier, if it is at all possible, then you should look at it. :-)
The cost of the component is just about right for the services that you get with it.
My favourite section is the front interface of the component which allows you to add video as well as images as it is so straight forward. A novice or a programmer will find it really easy. Thank You.
I personally love macarons and make them myself, but it makes me want to go home and bake! :-) Great Component.
I like the graphs and charts to track visitors and then Google analytic segment for tracking.
My only critique is that when you pay on paypal and you are sent back to your website it is not very clear where you have to download the component.
I would much prefer a link in an email which allows you click and download.
I run 2 businesses and don't have time to spend searching around a site for something I have already paid for.
I'm not downgrading a star, but it would be good to see a change.
Thank you for your awesome review! It really means a lot to me :)
Also thank you for your valuable feedback. I've added an extensive FAQ to the invoice with links to the downloads, documentation, support and more. So this won't be an issue anymore. I'll send you a copy by e-mail.
Thanks for making it simple to use, intuitive and user friendly.
Great job! If you are looking at this and thinking about it! STOP and buy it...SUPERB. Thanks. (I think I've had to much coffee) Cheers.
I started to register and pay, but then had real issues and it is such a shame that the developer could not be bothered to add a proper payment registration process. As I have now cancelled my order because of it.
It clearly states that you get 30 days for free but it forces you to pay the seven euros before you can actually have the 30 days for free and even then you are not told how.
Then when you get the registration email you are then told to enter your country and it just gives two options... Switzerland and "extra Switzerland" No other countries... Just stupid.
There is also a section that you have to fill in for VAT code. Well a lot of businesses don't know the code so why force people to add it. Without it you cannot finish the payment process. Like many others they have given up and cancelled their order, like me!
I just think the developer did not care about this part of the order process and just threw anything in there.
Such a shame as I was ready to buy this for my website and send you recommendations.
I'm very surprised that no-one else has made a note about the extension or a positive mention here as the module is brilliant and should have a lot more followers that just me.
You don't even have to register to use it which is even better and as a bonus the developer gives you choice whether to mention his work or not too.
Many developers put back links in, but I can not see any, so thank you.
