i love it!
if you need an FAQ / FAQ community tool, with subscriptions to questions and replies - this baby rocks!!!
convenient, easy to use and integrate.
At first install i had a bug due to K2 releasing a new update, one email and a few hours later Cecil fixed this issue, and provided great support at great response times.
Customization and skinning service is provided at more than fair prices.
I would certainly recommend both the product and commend the support.
will definitely consider buying more extensions from this developer.
however K2 is very poorly supported - and i payed good money for two licenses hoping this would be my savior, the program is buggy, for example some of the K2 fields get deleted if you press "apply" and not "save & close",
also it's not compatible with K2store, which is what i bought this for...
All my concerns were emailed and for every mail i got a one sentence reply - "is not supported" or "can't be done". without real answers to my questions... and for some emails i didn't receive any reply, by far my least pleasent experiences dealing with a developer. I am reserved person so i didn't bother to write angry emails, but for a user who bought two licenses within such a short period of time, i would expect more courtesy and attention to my questions,
i made two multilingual k2 sites with store - i'm not a happy puppy, my next project i think i will opt for zoo + zoolingual.
Sorry i don't remember your mail but :
- K2 is full supported (with tweak for custom fields)
- The 100998 of the community don't have an content elmement for Falang your right.
- There are some extension who can't be translated with Falang because there are not compatible, i can't do nothing for that but generaly i write to the developper to make it compatible.
Well first of all thanks to the developer for ultra-fast responses on all my issues...
and this component works so nicely it just amazing, very easy interface! and you can't go wrong! 1 minute to integrate, 1 minute to figure it out... management is really simple!!! you enter either user email, gallery link, or whatever you have, it will show you all the public galleries for that user, you then choose the ones you wish to use.
the thumbnail streaming is incredible, and it looks spetacular...
very simple interface - easy to integrate and follow, very usefull and does what it says,
i opted for the pro version, well worth the dough!
the only snag i can point out, is that if you're running a home page which is module based, the customizable redirection text area will appear in the content area - below the modules - but still, you're better off landing in the homepage rather than an ugly 404 page - it would have been nice to have been able to redirect from within the component to a specific joomla a specific menu item rather than to use the htaccess to point it at the qlue content id., which is dependent on the parent.
but other than this - it's great!
the back-end for the module is a masterpiece, allowing clients to add slides as desired, each slide can be defined to contain title text, sub text, custom picture and can be linked to custom url / k2 item / joomla article.
it has a lot of possibilities, transitions, styles and configurations, however it may require good CSS knowledge to get it to behave nicely or as you want in non-gavick templates.
we use this and NewsShow Pro by Gavick all the time! it's a killer solid solution for great looking tidy front pages.
Thanks for this one!
The client wanted also that name as entered in the form will be the name from which the email arrived, and they wanted the client ID (client number) to appear in the subject line for easy tracking and retrieval of requests, and all the info + attachments need to be delivered to email as well!
All this was easy to use and easy to set-up - right out of the box - there's a lot of functionality, the major advantage of this form is that it will deliver any number of attachments to an email out of the box - no scripting, no 'light programming', no tweaking - just do it...
and the absolute candy here - there's also a small and basic, but perfect back-end message tracking system, with customizable statuses so applications can also be managed from the backend - each status can be filtered and color coded for easy spotting of missed/unhandled messages.
there's also a nice basic custom fields editor and for each form you create you can decide what fields you want to use.
all in all a really nice, handy and excellent component, and to seal the deal - it's FREE... so what more can ask for!
I will definitely donate for this one - i would have gladly paid for it.
I am hoping i will get info soon from the developers - i have asked them to add more information on how to use the product in the forum
The Docs are online - As well the module includes the LAYOUTS we show in the DEMO as templates - You can use these or do your own custom markup - It's not very nice to complain here that you don't have HTML or CSS skills as any web designer should have the basic knowledge of these.
Please find docs here:
As you see there ARE code examples and enough to get you started.
If you have an issue with the module you can always contact our support team with a support ticket and we can help you work anything out.
the only feature that is missing to make this perfect would be the ability to choose the image maximum display height, at the moment you need to format all the images to the desired height,
other than that it's brilliant...
for a piece of software that has been around the block i was really disappointed by the import and export options...
In my case i am trying to run two instances of mosets running on two subdomains with joomla websites, the problem started when i wanted to migrate the data to the second instance of mosets tree, i would have expected to have the option to read the data remotely... or at the very least, have good export and import data tools, however the export tool exports only the listing and does NOT export the categories, in the forum i read that you have to open the categories manually before importing listings - so i did... but since the category ids are different, when i import the data it all goes to the wrong categories, i read somewhere in their forums that the best way to do this is to go to phpmyadmin and export manually the relevant database section, this seems to me very odd - it might be the best way, but it's not easy, and not all that well documented, and i'm surprised why the developers didn't bother to do anything about this, since it's a recurring question throughout the forum to which i didn't see too many replies,
so all in all it's a great piece of software lacking bigtime in the most basic of database migration tools.
wish i would have know about it before, I am using over 100 instances of this module and it works like a charm!
The ease of use, flexibility of configuration and the added values for content administration and correct display of intros across browsers is just spectacular.
One of the major bonuses of using this module, is the content admin doesn't have to worry about resizing the thumbnails and placing them into an intro text to display a news article correctly in the homepage or lobby page or in a blog view, the first image will appear as predefined for each instance (for example for one lobby you can 90*90 thumbs and for another 200*200pixels thmbs - the original pictures being random sizes.
The module will cut the text at the exact number of character as required and the formatting of the html happens in the module, so you can define very complex and fully customizable display structures for each instance!
Another major advantage is your ability to switch an instance between list view, scrolling ticker view, items view(picture + text), so you can play with the same instance on the fly and just apply it differently every time,
EXAMPLE: below every article i use an instance to show 2 random articles with picture and text,
to the left of the article i have a list of the top articles in the same category, and these two are copies of the instance i used to display articles in the lobby page...
This product makes Joomla webmastering more accessible than ever!
i think it's a great innovation and most certainly one of the best modules i have ever used, big respect and thanks to the authors!
the only thing missing to make it perfect is some way to handle pagination, when they get this done - i could create half a portal using only this module.
