Root PDF Content
I could not get it to work at all -- failed with two errors which crashed the admin interface. Initially support from the writer was helpful in solving the non fatal error (which involved changing the file rather than the extension files). But since then no response whatsoever for 4 days on solving the fatal error, or am I expecting too much for a non-commercial extension?. Its a pity as its a great idea.

This is an isolated error.

ACL Manager
I was struggling with building a site with some complex permissions and I had to keep referring to the book to figure out where I had to change the permission for a particular user to a particular extension ... tedious but working. Then I wanted to give access to JComments ... and you cant do it in the extension. ACL Manager to the rescue and at last I can clearly see the complex permissions and change and tune them on one screen!. An excellent extension well worth the money.

Slideshow CK
I have tried many extensions (both paid for and free)for displaying photos and this is one of the best for a straightforward slide show. Lots of options and a great presentation. Minor niggle about having to load each image separably.

thank you for your great review, I'm actually working on a way to import the images from a folder

Maxi Menu CK
Having looked for easy to use horizontal J!2.5 menus for a while I came across this and it fits the bill perfectly. It is free but changing the colour scheme is difficult unless you buy a theme. 7 Euro (less than the price of a couple of coffees) is very reasonable and unlike adelrami I am happy to pay that for such a great extension. BTW support is also first class. Check out some other the other JoomlaCK extensions as well.

I was very keen to get this extension in the aparent absence of anything else that could provide a simple way of adding an extra couple of fields rather than hacking the core files. If took me a while to get it working, probably my fault for being a beginer. Overall it does what it says it does but I dont think the implementation is very clean. It appears to overide some global configurations settings and I have yet to find a way of styling the log in box. Its documentation is poor for a commercial product.
