Tabs & Sliders
This Tabs module is very easy to use. But it lacks of two important features: 1. Open tab on mouseover. 2. Automated tabs change.

Anyway, this is still a very good module. Thanks to the authors.

Now this component has the CAPTCHA support, that's great! Thanks to the author!

This is a very good component. I hope the author can improve the uploading feature, since if we have too many categories of e-cards, why not create sub-folders for each category ?

In addition, I think use Flash video file (.swf) to make E-cards is more beautiful. Please add support for SWF videos. When the receipient got the notification mail, he can click the link inside the mail to go to our website to watch the SWF video.

Core Design Ajax Vote
I would like to rate this one 5 stars but I can't, because it simply doesn't work!

I installed this plugin on my Joomla! 1.5.6, and installed the Scriptegrator plugin. Surely I had enabled both plugin and select jQuery JS to yes in Scriptegrator plugin. But it just refuses to show up the stars!

I tested this component today. It is very easy to use. The multi-language interface works very well, it can auto detect and pickup my language file.

Thanks to the authors.

Ozio Gallery
This is a very beautiful photo gallery component! I can't help being excited to translate it into Chinese language.

I noticed that the author is planning to add Separate Album feature in the future version, that will make this component even better !
Ignite Gallery
I tried to translate this component, but found that it can't pick up the correct language file according to the site language settings. Even when I checked the preferences of this component, I found that my new translation was not included in the language list!

Hope the author use .ini file format for language files instead of php format. This is the standard format for Joomla! 1.5 native extensions.

Second problem is, when I tried to create a new menu item of this component and save it, it can't be saved in IE7 browser. I was forced to change to FireFox browser and then I can save it. I hate been compelled to use FireFox!!
Owner's reply

I have added .ini language translation to the feature list. At the moment the php translations work fine. Any extra translations can be included by simply putting the language file name into the config.xml file.

The component also works fine with Internet Explorer. Out of 1500 downloads this is the only user that has complained with and Internet Explorer Issue. However the user is convinced the component has the error, not themself, and has chosen to complain here, instead of following the issue up in the support forum, where I am happy to help with.

This is a good component for Joomla! 1.5.x to show random quotes. It is very easy to use. So I made a Chinese language translation for it since the new version has the multi-lingual interface support.

If the author can add a new feature to allow user creating or editing categories, it will be better.

Disqus Comments
I want to use Disqus plugin. But I noticed that the frontend interface of Disqus comment system has no multi-lingural support, it only shows English language. And the Disqus plugin can't choose specified section or category. Not good.
Owner's reply

I'm guessing that the DISQUS people have plans to open their service to other languages as well. You can contact them directly if you want on this post:

Regarding display options, we will roll out v1.2 soon (along with the J!1.0.x version) which will feature the ability to filter where you want the comments to appear. ;)

I have been using Remository component for a long time. This is the best downloading management component for Joomla! now. I recommend it to everayone.

The latest news is there is also a new native version for Joomla! 1.5 to run without legacy mode.

This is the only one component that can let us attach files to article in Joomla! 1.5 contents.

The author is also very talented and active. Thanks to him!

BookLibrary Basic
This is an amphibian like component to display your books. I mean, at one side, it can accept the book infomation entered by you manually; at the other side, it can retrieve the book information automatically from, you ONLY need specify the ISBN numer of that book.

The most important thing is, it can implement your Amazon Associate Tag and let you got rewarded if someone click your book link and buy a book from amazon. So you can built a small bookstore in minutes to make money from amazon online bookstore as an affiliate.

Joomler SyntaxHighlighter
I have waited for a long long time to see these features in this plugin: custom line number and copy to clipboard. Now the dream come true.

Thanks to Joomler!.net for offering us such an amazing plugin at no cost.

I view JooBB on Joomla! 1.5 as a FireBoard on Joomla! 1.0.x.

JooBB has more features waiting us to explore. I highly recommend Joo!BB to those who won't use a bridge to build forum on Joomla! 1.5.

Someone applaud for this commenting component maybe because it is the first one, or the only one at present, commenting component for Joomla! 1.5. But it is not so good. The file and folders structures are similar in component and plugin, which make me very confused when trying to translate it.

The backend parameters are also weird, it ask me to add a Guest User account! I haven't seen such a requirement on any other commenting system.

Second, it is not easy for those who want to allow comments for All his sections. This component has no option for All Section, you must enter the section IDs manually.

I am not satisfied. Hope the author will improve it later.

This review shows, that yvComment is not so simple already, as it was 6 months ago :-)
It may be disappointed for somebody, but one have to read instructions on the Homepage to know how and why something is done...

Community Builder
C.B. is very good. I think it should be the core component of Joomla.

Vinaora World Time Clock
This module can display a clock as it claimed. But it only shows one clock for one region. I thought it can display several clocks for different time zones just as we saw on the wall in big hotels.

This module also loads very slow since it will try to read some data from another remote server.

Very great component !

I can't love it more. Yes, I had also made Chinese translation for it.

Now I think you can add a link of Back to Joomla for this new version.

Thank you.

Random Flash
Finally we have this module to show Flash files on the Joomla webpage. I love this one.

But I noticed that this module will resize my flash banner to about 190px wide when the original width was 768.

Maybe it need some reparation.

Anyway, thanks to the author. This is a great one.
Owner's reply

baijianpeng: Are you sure that this is because of the module. Could this be an issue with your template?
