I've run into the same roadblocks - functionality that's missing - the perfect script that isn't a joomla extension - a necessary file or replacement style for one page.... It can be frustrating to find a way to incorporate these elements in ways that they weren't intended.
Fortunately, I consider programming to be the plaything of my adulthood. When I don't have the toy I want to play with - I make it.
I'm glad to hear this extension is helping you achieve your goals. It may be an abstract concept - but great reviews like this help me to achieve mine!
The other CCKs are good to okay, but do not offer the flexibility I need. I wish I would have tried F2C first because it turns out to be absolutely perfect for just about any content related project I can imagine.
Their integration of the Smarty template engine is nothing short of genius, allowing me to lay the content out exactly the way I want - not only in the browser but also in the generated HTML (think schema.org). And since F2C creates native Joomla! articles, I can use any content plugins I care to without regard to compatability issues.
I can't say much about support because, so far, I have not needed any. With their extensive and well written documentation, and the occasional search in their forums, I was able to figure everything out without asking for help. But from what I see in other reviews and within their forums, I feel confident support will be there if I ever need it.
My only regret is that I dumped money into paid versions of other CCKs, to the tune of several hundred dollars, before discovering Form2Content. If you're looking for the most flexible and most powerful CCK, you want F2C. Read the documentation, take the time to learn it... you will not be disappointed.
Thank you for the kind compliments and for the support all these years!
Support is unresponsive. I submitted a support ticket Thursday evening, made sure the correct domain is registered with the license, as required, and even provided a login for SimBunch. It is now Saturday evening and I have yet to get a response.
I wouldn't mind so much if they at least showed some willingness to work with me. If they can't fix it, maybe help me find a work-around. But to just leave me hanging is not acceptable. I now have a choice - find my own way to work around this issue or let almost $100 go down the drain. A simple reply could have avoided this review.
We regret the inconvenience caused. However, please note that we are committed to respond to support tickets within 2 working days, as stated on our Support page. Also, do note that as our time zone is +8 GMT, we received your ticket in the middle of Friday, not Thursday. Since we do not work on weekends (everyone has families to attend to), there was nobody to respond to your ticket.
That said, we've had actually cleared all outstanding tickets a few hours ago (on a Sunday, no less). Your ticket should have received a response already.
