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.
he upside of systems like WordPress is they have a nice unified backend but, they don't have the massive arsenal of addons like we do here at the JED!! This plugin helps close that gap.
Another reason why we only roll with Joomla.
To start, when tickets are ordered, there is no setting to have the system administrator receive a copy of the ticket order.
Once tickets are purchased, you can not export the purchases to a CSV, just in case you need to pull it into Excel or something else.
Also, when adding an event, there is a broken field on the current version with no label as to what it does. When you re-edit an event, be careful not to input more seats. There's not many instructions on how to use this area of the component.
The list goes on.. In hindsight, we should have purchased another product.
I'm always wonder why people are complaining about features that DOESN'T, when the extension DOESN'T HAVE THIS FEATURE AT ALL.
-- the component doesn't have export to excel at the moment, so why to complain about it? You can send a mail and to add it as a request and maybe it would be added in future versions.
Every order is store at administrator side, we would add ability to send a mail.
IF you can, Pleased send a mail and I would do my best to assist and help with anything.
Thanks for your review. You are very fast :) For that reason, we give you our new version - free (already sent to your email). Immediately after the release of new versions, we just do not have time to refresh the page. Now is possible to update your versions on the site.
After purchasing, you'll download a ZIP file called jce_advlink_zoo.zip. Don't try and install that into JCE, it won't work. You need to unzip this file. My suggestion to the dev was to simply rename it to jce_advlink_zoo_unzip.zip which makes more sense.
Once unzipped, you will have 2 ZIP files. They are jce_advlink_zoo_0.6_j15, and jce_advlink_zoo_0.7_j16. Now, most people who have been around Joomla for a while would assume the _j16 would be for Joomla 1.6; nope!
The jce_advlink_zoo_0.6_j15.zip is actually for JCE 1.5 installs and jce_advlink_zoo_0.7_j16.zip is for JCE 2.x installs (regardless of Joomla version).
I suggested renaming them to jce_advlink_zoo_0.6_jce15.zip and jce_advlink_zoo_0.7_jce20.zip which makes more sense. I would have never had to visit the forums for help if they were named something like this.
To the dev, good job and GREAT pricing but, please rename your ZIP files.
Sorry that you didn't understand the simplicity of this component. Install with one click. Just put your additional css-files into yours template/css directory. Don't forget to give them filename the prefix template_.
Then go to the components backend and assign the css-files to the menuitems you like.
That's all, easy goin'. You need no luck, but a little bit intelligence.
More then 10.000 Joomla! Websites works with css2switch without any problems. If the component is to strong, you are to weak. Tell the community your problem in a usefull way, or post your problem at our first aid support forum. People like you does'nt think about how much work and sweat developers like us puts into their work.
Thanks and "good luck" to you,
