Auto onPageLoad Popup
We have used this product for a year or more and just recently renewed our subscription after migrating to Joomla 3.3.3. After doing so, we had some issues. As soon as we put a ticket in, a response happened and they and everything fixed and working within 10 minutes. As usual, it was a jQuery conflict causing issues. They still took care of the issue.

Fantastic support.

After we started supporting and building WordPress sites, we grew envious of the Visual Layout Editor for WP and wished that someone would build something like it for Joomla. This is it, the visual layout editor for Joomla!

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!

Dear WebJIVE,
Thanks for review, and also we did review our pricing and extended subscription period from 1 month to 6 months.

We installed the free version and what we liked about this addon is, it feels like the commercial visual layout editor for WordPress.

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.

Visual Website Editor
I tried this out on one of our client sites and it has some great ease of use features. The only downsides are that if the service goes away, so do your edits since the edits are remotely hosted. Also, you can't add main menu items.

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.

Simple Mobile Detection
This saved me from having to code mobile detection to perform redirects for smartphones so, thanks for this excellent plugin!

My Content & Workflow
With Article Factory getting long in the tooth on looks, we decided to try this one and we're pleasantly surprised. We had an issue with the initial installation and the development team had us a fix just a day or so after reporting. Well worth the $$ spent.

Embed Google Docs Viewer
This product works exactly as expected and makes it a breeze to embed Google docs like spreadsheets, etc.
CW Multicategories
We have a client with a LARGE Joomla site (pushing 77k articles and growing by 1000 a month), and up to this point, they copied articles to get them to appear in more than one category in Joomla. Standard Joomla practice.

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.

Vertical Accordion Menu - All in One
Spectacular module and easy to use/configure. Its rare you find a module where so much attention to detail has been paid to make it stand out!
Better Preview
The Better Preview from NoNumber is the second reason we keep our subscription up at his site for his add ons! This is the most used feature of any site we build for clients. Peters support is second to none as well!

Article Preview
One of our issues with previewing the content with other extensions is when you use a SEF component like sh404sef, and you preview, it creates duplicate links and can cause issues. With this plugin, you select which menu to see it under which fixes that problem. Bravo.

To the developer.. Please update your wonderful extension to work with Joomla 3.x! We desperately need an article preview for it.

JO Facebook Gallery
I don't know what the last reviewer was talking about being slow for? The product works great for us and is only limited by the Graph API speed from Facebook. This is by far the most complete Facebook Gallery add-on we have tried.

VM Mass Update
We purchased this addon for Virtuemart and it's absolutely indispensable! Makes adding and changing products fast and easy. Please don't be shocked by the price, it's worth every penny and the support has been excellent.

Virtuemart Links for Advanced Link
This product worked out of the box as expected. No problems, just works!

Watchful Client
I have been waiting for an addon or service for Joomla 2.5 like this one! I talked with other developers who said this couldn't be done, and here we are, a service that does exactly what we need!

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?
Owner's reply

I'm glad its working for you. We have plans for a self-hosted version in 2013.

Vertical Social Share Vote Button
After trying all the freebies out there, this add-on was well worth the money. After installing, the scroller wasn't showing and shortly after emailing the developer, they had it working. The problem was user error. Highly recommended social add-on!

Prestashop Products
Now if you can continue Prestashop development and figure out a way to make Joomla the CMS around Prestashop like other developers did for Opencart and Magento, you will have a SMASH hit.

SP Staging
We have been waiting for a system like this for 2.5 for a while now. Being able to test and deploy extensions and upgrades is invaluable for Joomla development and hosting companies like us.

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...

SP Upgrade
This is a great extension for migrating content from Joomla 1.5. One thing I have yet to find with any of the migration tools is one that properly handles the assets table.

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.

JSN PowerAdmin

This is the first admin addon I have seen that really helps the user with tasks. Please keep improving it!
