With the other one, one had to log on with the username of the target user, using the admin password. Logging on as many users became a big thing.
This plugin, however, does not require any password to be entered. Once logged into the backend, you just click the target user, click the button to log on as that user, and bang, you're in as that user. Excellent!
If you're more into typing than clicking, you might prefer one of the other extensions, though.
If your website has any kind of public/guest write access (guestbook, forum, contact form etc), then this plugin is something you should install.
The only flaw, though a small one most of us can live with, is that it does not show a user, whose login attemt is rejected, why he cannot log in. So the user may keep trying various passwords etc, even though the password was correct.
-It enumerates all weblink categories, and shows the user configured amount of links in each. It cannot show a max number of links, from all categories, such as the newest 3 links from multiple categories.
-It cannot sort the newest links (ordered by date, descending).
I see I'm the first person reviewing this extension, so I hope the developer finds time and will to fix these issues.
Hi TMakro, thanks for downloading the plugin.
We would just like to let you know that the Pro version of this extension allows for all of the text to be edited, so you can use whatever language you like.
The light version, as you mentioned, has a more limited set of customization features.
No bugs encountered
Nice and simple, very little config. required
Automatic scheduled backups
Backups are kept locally on the server, as well as e-mailed (optional).
Only the entire DB is processed. It's not possible to select particular tables for backup/restore. However, it uses a simple .SQL file, so with some manual editing, this can be achieved.
More advanced backup/restore functionality is available on most web/DB servers, using PhpMyAdmin.
This is a nice plugin, with nice features like the ability to exclude it from certain categories and articles.
It loads slowly, as it loads non-local icons (from the Internet). Ideally, all icons should be local.
It also has a problem with my Artisteer template, so that some of the icons don't appear, for instance the Google+ icon. Since many Joomla templates are Artisteer created, this is something that the developers should look into.
However, some of the icons don't show in the frontend, when I use my Artisteer created template. Everything works fine with the default templates. Since many Joomla sites use Artisteer templates, this is something that should be fixed.
Though it works as promised, I need a bit more, in order to use it. So here's an improvement suggestion:
Make the module only appear if todays date is between date1 and date2.
Thanks for the review. I am afraid I don't understand your suggestion correctly. Can you please contact me via a forum to explain? (use the 'Support' link above or forum.jommla.org). Thanks!
