The plans are a little pricey but, unlike visual editor which makes you pay per WP site, YEEditor doesn't. Buy one subscription and use it on as many sites as you wish!
Thanks for review, and also we did review our pricing and extended subscription period from 1 month to 6 months.
Here's the downside, unless we're using this wrong, this layout editor doesn't embed itself in the actual article editor. You have to use the Component Menu to create the page layouts.
After we created a page layout inside Joomla using the free version, we couldn't see any way to embed that layout into the Joomla article.
Also, there is zero documentation other than a video on Youtube so, we're at a loss on how to use this product.
The product could keep evolving by turning it into a real Joomla addon and store the edits locally within the Joomla installation just in case the vendor shuts down the project. Being able to add menu items would be prefect because you could theoretically use this similar to WIX and others to let clients semi-redesign a site and add enhancements.
CW Multicats solved a HUGE issue for them with duplicate content which affects Google rankings, and can be a pain with sh404sef and other SEF addons. CW Multicats worked perfect without a single change to the system.
Recently, we ran into a situation where we discovered that CBSubs didn't work with articles in more that one category. Ouch.. We reached out to the developer and he helped us by patching 1 file to get CBSubs working again with CW Multicats.
Kudos to fantastic support.. We're donating some extra bucks to to the developer for that one! We'll keep doing business with this developer.
To the developer.. Please update your wonderful extension to work with Joomla 3.x! We desperately need an article preview for it.
We're going to play with this for a while but, when your hosting and doing all the Joomla management for clients, this is a must-have to keep addons and other items updated.
I wonder if the developer would do a leased version to run on our server?
I'm glad its working for you. We have plans for a self-hosted version in 2013.
Now, if we could only get this product to instruct Joomla 2.5 to self upgrade, we would have no reason to remotely login and upgrade Joomla core installs manually...
After using SP-Upgrade and others, then running ACL Manager to check the assets tables shows errors on every article imported.
If the author is using Joomla API's to import, then the core has an issue. Don't know which one it is with the issue but, I have yet to get a clean migration on sites with any tool where the assets table came out clean!
To this day I think the assets table is a mistake and that it's going to continue causing issues down the road, even with Joomla 3.0 and beyond until the core devs come up with a set of tools for repair or API's to properly migrate content.
