The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™

J Menu
The predefined menu styles are excellent. The coding is short hand and clean. I gave a average rating for a commercial extension because most of the customizing had to be done to the module core files. Also the developer used some odd jquery that caused other jquery components to stop working.

The sorting will only display 3 pages of results when there should be several. Hence the need for sorting. Their support is seriously lacking. After submitting a ticket and still waiting 2 weeks without an initial response. The install is easy to follow with the instructions. The setup fairly easy with ZOO customizing knowledge. If you only need 3 pages of results this is the extension for you. I am a Joomla Expert with over 10 years of web development & database experience.

JCK Editor
Great Editor,
Does not rewrite Code
Works with everything except YooTheme Zoo Framework.

Even if you disable the code rewriting it still edits your code. This even takes out HTML elements at times which it should never remove html tags.

JCE, it broke my site and this is not the first time.

The rating was actually raised on account that it is compatible with Zoo.

"Even if you disable the code rewriting it still edits your code. This even takes out HTML elements at times which it should never remove html tags."

Some elements - script, object, param, applet, iframe are removed by default, for security reasons, unless an appropriate configuration option is set or JCe plugin installed.

Joomla! also cleans code of certain elements unless configured not to -

News Show Pro GK4
I have used News Show since GK1. I have been a web developer and designer for over 16 years and i absolutely love this module. The automated animation is just wonderful. The settings are so easy to understand. Please include font size changing in the next version, as i just used some css. I AM DONATING AND YOU SHOULD TOO

I think they have done a great job with the visual of the comment list. I think the form should still be styled with some css though to match your comment lists.

Just like other users i am having huge problems changing the language.ini file for english, you should be able to change the en language file and be done, but fhe form headers do not change when you adjust the language file! In the end i just removed the jtext and added my own. Backend hack but at least it is what i want.
