I'm using Akeeba Release System for almost a year now and it's really a MAGNIFICENT download system!
Nicholas always searches for ways to automate cumbersome activities. A great example of that is bleeding edge, which automatically detects your uploaded downloads and changelog. Just FTP your download and refresh the front-end and you're done!
Amazon S3 and Akeeba Live Update support are also topnotch.
Support is as always very fast, friendly and of high quality. If you encounter an issue (which was rare during +/- a year of intensive use), it'll be solved within minutes.
Thank you very much Nicholas and keep up the good work!
There are also some very handy tools included. I always use the .htaccess maker, which creates a detailed and good .htaccess file within minutes. Also the permission repair and database optimize functions are really handy. Just a couple of clicks and you're done.
Meanwhile the Admin Tools plugin does some automatic maintenance: session optimizer, cache cleaner, temp directory cleaner (improves security) and more. Keeping your site in good shape at these points.
It's advised to read the manual to get the most out of this component. Also don't just enable something if you don't understand it. For example some of my clients couldn't add Joomla users, because Admin Tools blocked it to improve security. Just turn the setting temporarily off and you're good to go.
Support is AWESOME and Nicholas often replies within minutes. Problems are most of the time solved within minutes or hours. To sum it up: Admin Tools Pro is a must-have extension, I wouldn't trust my site without it! Keep up the good work Nicholas!
The support is excellent and the module is programmed nicely and supports template overrides. I also love the Twitter action buttons (reply/retweet/favorite).
If you didn't installed it yet, you should really try this module. You won't regret it!
Only a pitty is that the normal articles are only accessible by the control panel, sometimes you'll need both shortcuts.
Thanks for the review, in the new Joomla 2.5 module you can choose to show both the default Content menu and K2 Content menu or only one of them.
Using it on 5 websites and couting.
I have some suggestions to keep it the best:
- Emergency shutdown button (see Admin Tools)
- Automatic IP banning for high alerts (adjustable)
- More extensive back-end access control
- Check for all vulnerable extensions, not just Jummi
- Maybe a passive scanner that scans ones a day all files (see Eyesite)
- Checking/adjusting default admin ID (not sure if it does).
- Checking/adjusting default database prefix
Don't get me wrong there are LOTS of possibilities with this excellent Firewall!
System Lockdown is also nice, don't forget to add a secure password to RSFirewall!
Can't say anything about the support, didn't need any yet (Good manual)
BUY this Firewall, your Joomla website deserves it!
