With the new Joomla 2.5 version, I don't appear to be having any issues with this module anymore. Hopefully it stays that way.
Thanks for making this free too.
So happy it lets me use a channel too, so I don't have to insert a bunch of video URLs, yay!
Thanks for making & sharing!
Having the shortcode option was fantastic too. I struggle quite often with finding a way to put intro copy into components' pages, and this made my job super easy.
Works like a charm. Setting up photos and images works quickly and easily, intuitive to pick up and use. Thanks for creating, sharing, and especially, for making it FREE! :)
Automatic sitemaps are great and having a great extension to do it makes my life even easier.
Thanks so much for coding and sharing Xmap with us! And for maintaining its updates up to and throughout 2.5's release! :)
Sadly, I can't use this module because I can't get the Database configured. It keeps kicking back errors and not saving my database. First of all, it's really weird that I have to go into phpMyAdmin to setup a database myself -- very unusual for Joomla modules! And that's where all my issues are. I consider myself decently MySQL savvy, but I couldn't get this to work, and my site's form HAS to have a working, easily accessible database for my client. :(
I'll be keeping my eyes on this extension for future updates... hopefully the database section can be streamlined and improved because I really want to use it!
thank you for your review.
Next time you got problems with qlform, just ask;-) I'd be glad to help.
qlform's future: I'm not planning to add a table configuration to mod_qlform. It is but a small tiny module, a helpful tool to spare people a lot of work. So table configuration will stay in phpMyAdmin or you use the following component->.
Art Adminer: You could try to use this very helpful component. It enables you to administrate the database tables via Joomla! backend.
And it works really well with redSHOP, which is amazing!!! I couldn't get any other accordion menus to work with it and was starting to get really frustrated.
Thank you so much for this fantastic extension! I'll definitely have to check out your others. :)
As I've grown as a developer, I find myself barely using it anymore as I prefer to code in conditional statements right into the Joomla template itself, but I still keep this extension on hand just in case something ever comes up; I install it into all of my website by default. :)
Thank you for creating and sharing this plugin. It's definitely a must-have!
A lot of website have content that is re-used across multiple pages, and when it needs to be updated... boy, that's a lot of updating to do! But with Snippets, you update ONE thing and it's automatically updated on ALL pages! Wow!
Dear NoNumber, I may be in love with you... thanks for making my life so much easier!!!
Honestly, I don't know what I'd do without it! :)
I love how simple it is. Just install, insert the shortcode, and done! Thanks for the great plugin. :)
It hasn't met up with the needs of my advanced clients, though. For one, there's no option to add attributes, so I've had to start using eCommerce extensions set to catalog mode. And to customize the layout away from the default one when I have used it took a lot of tinkering around in the PHP.
It's good for plug-and-play if you don't want to change it much though, so for people who don't know a lot of HTML/PHP and are content with out-of-the-box stuff, it's great.
Customer service on the forum is alright from what I remember. It's monitored relatively well.
Thank you for your review,
Regarding the attributes, we're just developing option of custom fields and custom filters that will allow for much deeper configuration. This updated version should be released real soon. When it comes to layout and customization in new version you can create your own themes, the code is clean and pretty simple to manage so I encourage you to investigate this option as well. With little knowledge of php/html/css you'll be able to create and reorganize the dj-catalog2 theme to your client's needs. If you have more questions regarding customization please use our forum or ticketing system available for our customers. Once again thank you for this review.
Took a little dinking around in the beginning to get it to work (helps if you remember to enable the plugin...), but now it's working great. Absolutely fantastic!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
But it's not always very intuitive and sometimes is a little clunky. The website for it is a mess... don't except any help from the Support Forum; I had an issue for a week that was not allowing JoomDoc to work on my site (turns out I had to disable the Mootools upgrade) -- and not once did I get a reply on the forum, so it's pretty useless. Also, not sure why they say JoomDoc 3 is 1.5.x compatible when I couldn't get it to work on any of my 1.5.x sites... hm, strange.
Despite this, I still plan on using JoomDoc on my future sites. Clients seem to like it, and like I said before, it's the only extension I've found that matches all my site's requirements.
So, I guess we're stuck with each other, JoomDoc...
So, sadly, I won't be able to use it for my site. But I still see the power and beauty of this plugin and hope to be able to use it sometime in the future!
I'll continue to use redSHOP for future projects, and am really looking forward to when its a more complete, polished extension. There's so much potential there, I can smell it!
The only issue I've had with it so far is the following:
It's not obvious or documented where the "ariimageslider.ini" file for descriptions should go -- I dug through the forum thinking there was a bug as to why it wasn't working, which wasted my time. Please mention this somewhere so future users don't have an issue with it!
Other than that this is absolutely superb... Thanks so much, and especially for making it free! :)
