Skyline Testimonial is a great new extension. I looked at the demo, believed this extension showed promise and purchased the subscription. So far, I have not been disappointed.
Price: As a Commercial extension, I believe it is a great value. My subscription shows unlimited downloads, however the length of the subscription is still unknown. I hope the developer will clear this issue up.
Functionality: Things are kept simple and workable. The presentation of the testimonials on the front-end are simply beautiful.
Support: Very good. I noticed that a few essential features were missing (Email the Administrator, options to change the text and background color, and a few others. I filled out a contact form and in a few short hours those features were added to the extension. They also quickly fixed a few bugs that I had informed them about. The developer actually listens and is quick to fix errors or add needed features.
Updates: The developer is actively updating the extension.
The component is easy to work with and is invaluable as an analytical tool for maintaining a functional website. This is a standard for all websites I build (external or internal) the last few months. I have used many others, however this component is rock-solid, dependable and not resource intensive.
Thank you for this feedback, but I have to correct one statement. j4age is quite resource intensive regarding Database and you should always keep an eye on the size.
In the mean time we have added a "Drop Data" functionality, which allows to release all captured statistical data until a specific date by just pressing one button.
I saw webpages which have collected 200MB within 2 years. A regular webpage will captured approx. 20MB every year. A private homepage around 2MB.
We constantly try to improve the response times and resource consumption, that´s why we are focused to take more advantage of our caching mechanism in the future.
Use it wisely and it won´t let you down :)
Using a modal window for the feedback form was simply a stroke of genius. This plug-in works great and the email messages generated looks good and contain all necessary information for follow-up communications.
I had an issue and the developer worked on it way past normal working hours. It is this dedication to supporting his customers after he has sold them the product, that separates Douglas from the multitude of other developers. I would not hesitate to buy any other component, module or plug-in from Douglas. He simply has the best support that I have seen.
I did a search of other quiz components and basically did not like what I saw. They were either too expensive, unnecessarily complicated or not functional for my needs.
I ran across SimpleQuiz and liked what I initially saw. I was very surprised and impressed that this component did more than provide a replacement for the other troublesome component.
SimpleQuiz is more than simple, it provides easy to implement functionality in presenting quizzes that I never had before. It is a very powerful and complete component at an affordable price. I was able to port the quizzes I had prepared and present them using SimpleQuiz. The client was very pleased.
MooFAQ has always just worked. It allows a developer to easily create a FAQ section for your website or a series of FAQs, if needed. My customers are always satisfied when they see the FAQ in action. It is a component that makes my job easier.
The support provided by the component developer is phenomenal. He routinely goes above and beyond the service and advice you get from others.
I had a problem with the Google Map showing up in Internet Explorer. I got with the developer and he worked with me until the issue was cleared up (turned out to be a problem associated with Artisteer templates). The developer was very knowledgeable and made sure I understood what was going on and what he was doing.
I now have a great appreciation for this developer and have found out that the component has many diverse uses. A great product and follow-up service.
This component was outstanding. It gives you the control to be very creative. I finally am able to easily create a "Contact Us" form that is both professional looking and functional.
Thanks for getting this process right.
They really provide a multitude of configuration options and they seem to continue to mature the product. This extension has made my job of developing websites a little easier.
