Ozio Gallery
I really want to like this extension... in fact I think I do... enough that I have implemented it into a couple of my websites. There are a few changes that I think, if made, would make it even better:

1) The ability to align a gallery that is placed into an article (ie center, left, right).

2) Somewhere to get support like a forum or ticketing system (there might be one but I couldn't find it).

3) Clearer documentation in English. The instructions (while correct) are a little muddled/messy. Could use some clarity.

4) A global "Google+ User ID" setting so I don't have to keep putting in my number every time I want to insert a new gallery.

5) Some other system to manage galleries that are only used within articles other than having to create a false menu items. It works... but it's a little messy.

Apart from that I have found it to deliver on everything that it has promised. Good job guys.

I used to use this plugin on every website I set up... but then I got out of the game for a while and when I got back in I could not remember what it was called. So glad I found it, it's a must for any website. Would give it 6 stars if I could.

I am not normally one for buying extensions... and so when I paid for this one I was a little 'cautious'.

I have to say though that I am extremely happy with both the extension and the support that I have thus received (as I had a few questions and posted them on the forums -received answers within hours).

There is loads of options, ways to present stuff and customization that you can do IF YOU WANT... or you can just use their settings to keep it easy.

Great work guys.

J2XML Importer
I put a lot of faith in J2XML... over 400 articles and other content... I was honestly just expecting to loose everything when I migrated from 1.5 to 2.5... I am so happy to say though that EVERYTHING copied over exactly as promised. I really REALLY appreciate free applications like this one... the guys behind it deserve donations from guys like me who get saved HUNDREDS OF HOURS of work by extensions like this one.

I am quite impressed with the simplicity of it all. If your not looking for anything too hardcore this is perfect.

I was not able to make all records appear on one page however, which unfortunately means I cant use this extension (unless there is a way and I am missing it).

So the first time I went to use this extension I was actually a little disappointed... it was so complex and the form that I needed to make was huge (I thought it would take me hours).

Turns out I just didn't read up on it properly... there is a very simple and straight-forward form builder that is still highly customizable... my form got done in about 15 minutes (its a big form) and I couldn't be happier.

Having used 2 other similar extensions I can say that this on is totally worth the money.

Oh and I had some support issues which were replied to in under 24 hours. Thanks very much.

If you are looking for a form extension that is as simple or as complex as you want it to be this is it!

I have looked at nearly a dozen different similar extensions... some were ok... none were as good as Proforms. Very straight forward and very customizable. I love it.

Brilliant gallery, it can be as complex or as simple as you like.

You can enable and disable HEAPS of options to craft this gallery category exactly as you want it. Very nice. Don't be scared to give it a try. The back-end is pretty easy to understand and there are heaps of options for uploading (single, bulk, ftp... etc).

I was looking for something fairly simple, at first I thought this would be too complex -but I am very happy with it and recommend it to anyone.

Only thing I have yet to do is figure a way to have a menu link that will open just a single category instead of going to the categories view list (as I only use one category) -worked something out using a "External Link" to the page. Perhaps this could be added later.
