It really makes the placement of Google Ads on Joomla sites incredibly fast and easy. It's perfect!
GCalendar
This extension offers exactly the kind of integration I needed with Google Calendar. I manage my neighbourhood's sports club website, and this way the coaches and staff keep the fixtures up to date on Google Calendar (a tool they are used to) and the website gets all the info from there. It makes my job so much easier!

I use it for a "next match" module on the frontpage, as well as for a list of upcoming fixtures with 25 items.

And the look and feel is fully customizable with html!

This is a very good extension, and I don't know of any other that offers this kind of functionality. It's great for any kind of club.

Just a few things that I missed:
- the possibility of users filing their own info+uploading their photo in the frontend;
- options in the backend to customize the fields and the look and feel.

Otherwise, it's a very good and easy way to keep and update sports squads.

Works much better than the "custom html" module that comes with Joomla. There's no wysiwyg code cleanup mess and you don't have to turn the editor off and on again... Just write/paste html and that's it. Very useful.

I wanted a module with a nice effect (scroll, slide or fade for example) that would display short snippets of text - event details to be precise (name, date, time, place). I didn't need/want to create an article for each of these events, so I needed a news ticker that didn't get its content from my website's articles.

I tried most of the non-commercial alternatives available and this one was the best. It's very easy to set up and it has the exact features I was looking for, including the ability to format the text that will appear in the module (linebreaks, bold text, etc. - even images). I'd like to thank the developer and I highly recommend this extension!
