The worst that can be said of MijoShop is that it is still bound to its OpenCart underpinnings in ways that cause minor issues. Those issues can be worked around, so they are truly minor.
But that 'worst' is still far, far better than the competition.
MijoShop is a solid performer out of the box and getting better all the time. Updates are constant and the compatibility level with OpenCart extensions is high.
But what really makes this a 'must have' extension is the support. Every query has been answered and solved. The one 3rd party integration which didn't work out of the box was re-written to be made compatible.
The minor issue I have is simply with the whole OpenCart module paradigm. It can make it hard to assign specific modules to specific products or pages.
This is the cart that's gotten me back to Joomla eCommerce.
I've had two minor issues - but not with the module. The K2 search plugin didn't return image data properly, so the Offlajn guys went ahead and modified the K2 Search plugin to properly show images. Similarly, the K2 Search plugin had an issue with exact phrase searches. Offlajn was extremely responsive and helped resolve the issue within 24 hours of my raising it.
They worked with me quickly, courteously and to the utmost of their ability.
They've been outstanding with their support and the module itself is great.
The readme provided is barely sufficient. It's fine if you're doing a straight install, but when the time comes to upgrade the documentation is non-existent.
Support was once excellent, but now appears to be extremely patchy.
Non technical users will have difficulty with the installation. I've got many years of Joomla work under my belt, but the latest updates to VM & Inventory Control render my client sites unusable and I've been unable to rectify the issue. So moderately skilled people may also have difficulty.
Thank you for your feedback. Documentation has been updated to help novice users. The consistent feedback about this component states that when it is installed properly, it solves alot of headaches and problems as far as inventory is concerned.
What do I mean by this? It's the only one with a decent component/module setup that allows my clients to easily and simply manage their slides.
It's easy to setup, works out of the box and supports template overrides.
Plus, it uses Joomla's MooTools framework, so no additional libraries are added to your site's overhead.
I got to see some of the early testing of this component as the guys knew I was already a heavy user - full disclosure, I wound up doing the interface style. The functionality is pure freakedout.
This integration is everything you could want out of a newsletter management tool for Joomla. Full integration through Mailchimp's extensive API (which is more feature-packed than CM) plus integration with both the Joomla article system and K2 - I'm in heaven.
Those that know me realise I'm a big K2 fan, so the ability to repurpose existing articles for a newsletter by simply including them is just fantastic. Even better, you can choose to include only the intro-text and automatically include the 'readmore' link to the full article on the site. It's fantastic.
The reporting is also excellent, which is one of the most important aspects of email marketing for me.
There's a minor issue for me where I can't find a compatible mootools version that doesn't pooch the administrator area.
JoomlaCK fits the bill for the most part. It's particularly fast in switching to source-view, a critical factor for me. It's extremely fully-featured and contains pretty much every necessary to produce rich content (including form building!).
However the crucial element it's missing is the ability to change the background colour of the editor. Without this, it's impossible to get a sense of how an article will actually look. The documentation says it's possible, but the parameters are missing.
Fortunately the client had already given us the content in a spreadsheet, so it was a no-brainer to give CUP a try. Once we'd correctly setup the sections and categories the import was a piece of cake - literally saved us days of work.
When we ran into a minor problem (our ignorance, not the component's fault) we turned to the developers and got fast and responsive help.
Even better, it made handover of the site a breeze. Producing spreadsheets is part of the client's workflow already - all they have to do to maintain their site is keep uploading.
Installed without a hitch and it plays well.
The admin section is particularly good for this type of plugin.
One thing that's great is that you can set the default size in the admin component.
Having said that...
Like other users I'd like to be able to set the aspect ratio & size of videos on a case by case basis - for those vids which will not conform to the usual standard.
