Was a little worried about purchasing another program, but really needed a directory for a Chamber of Commerce website with a VERY small budget.
I literally had this one up and working within seconds of downloading it. Had ONE issue, went to their website and found the answer in seconds.
The ability to add a Youtube URL is awesome and works perfectly.
The Locate on Map after you enter the address is amazing.
Changing a listing from one category to another, or even better yet, being able to COPY a listing to show in more than one category..well, I can't tell you how happy I was to discover THAT feature!
I've only added one custom field so far, a simple Radio Button, but it worked the very first time and can't wait to try more of them.
I have not even delved into this program much, because it worked so quickly and easily right out of the box, but I'm sure there are more great features for me to discover.
I can't say enough good things about Mosets Tree and encourage anyone who needs a good directory program to purchase this!
Many, many thanks to the developers!
Forum support was awesome, EVERY question answered in detail. When I told them to 'dumb down' the explanation a bit for a newbie like me, they did just that and I was able to make the changes.
I don't have another calendar extension to compare it to, but I do have to say that once you get a hang of it, this one is great.
Becoming a Gold Member was SO worth the price, not just for the awesome support, but for the great plugins:
Image and File Upload Plugin
Facebook Share Plug In
Additional Calendar Layouts
User Authorization Plugin
I can't list them all, and there are WAY more than I have even tried, waiting until I feel more comfortable with the ones I have.
Absolutely recommend this extension!
Found another one that seemed simple, like the Article Factory, bought it, but it caused some problems with displaying on the site. Waited about a week for them to solve the issue, then gave up.
Got Article Factory last night, set it up this morning, tested it. Was unhappy that the JCE editor didn't show in the front end, because I wanted people to be able to format their articles, add photos, etc..
Went to their forum, read several different posts including answers from their staff, had the problem solved in seconds.
I'm new to Joomla, so I want my extensions 'basic' as far as setup, but I also want them to work as described.
This one, so far, has met my expectations.
Had many questions about configuration even after reading the documentation, posted questions on the forum, they were answered quickly and CLEARLY so that I was able to make this component work.
Did my first test this morning: edited an article in Joomla, went to Auto Tweet Messages on back end of Joomla, approved the article and BOOM, it was on the Facebook page pretty as can be.
Still need to figure out how to make it work with my own App on facebook, and I'm sure I'll be posting to the forum a bunch more times (sorry developers!).
Love the product, Love the customer service.
It was easy to install, easy to configure, easy to implement and I've used it pretty much everywhere on the site now.
The support is great, I got quick answers to the few questions I had. The forums are great for reading others questions and seeing the solutions. In fact, one question I asked, I figured out the answer simply by reading the forums.
Definitely worth the money!
