The big thing I like about this blog, aside from it's ease of use, is the fact that RS Joomla! have so many other excellent extensions, all of which are guaranteed compatible with one and other. This makes my job as a develop for clients very easy indeed.
The support is great with this company, pricing is realistic, and multi-site licenses are available. An all-round great deal.
I own a number of directories in the financial services vertical, and have had some sites hacked ten or more time before we started using RS Firewall. There has not been a single successful hack attempt on any of our sites since we started using this excellent extension.
I own a lot of RS Joomla! licenses, and am a huge fan of this developer. They keep their products current, their pricing is realistic, and their support is excellent. A first rate extension from a first rate developer.
The product installed without issue. The admin panel was intuitive and the product was not difficult to configure, and get working. I did encounter a number of issues with uploading data, via the CSV import function. The support from CMS Junkie in assisting to resolve this and other minor issues was EXCELLENT.
This extension is feature rich, and importantly the features actually work! I have found it to be compatible with a range of Joomla extensions such as RS Blog and RS Comments. The site works very well on a responsive template, particularly if you’re prepared to play with the CSS a bit. Overall, it’s a very hassle free extension to use.
There are a few things with the current product that could be better. The documentation is a little inadequate, and the support forums are a little patchy, probably because it's a fairly new product. I know that they are doing a rewrite on the User Manual now, which will be really helpful.
Probably the most frustrating issue is modifying the language files, only to have them overwritten with each upgrade. Even with saved files, it took me over an hour to locate and edit all the changes I had made previously, after upgrading. Given the overall quality of this extension, that is a very trivial annoyance indeed!
Even though the extension is not perfect, I gave it five stars because the support is so very good, and it's crystal clear that the developer is hell-bent on further developing JBusinessDirectory into an even better product, with each release. Well worth the money. Love your work guys!
