I know how much effort it takes to create an addon for Joomla and I know what it's like to want to make sure you get credit for that hard work. However, the developer of this component has simply made it too difficult to integrate this otherwise very useful component into a professional site of any kind.

Though it is feature rich, there is no way to disable a large (and gaudy) link and logo back to the author's site.

Ironically, this is useless advertising, as people looking for recipes are rarely looking for Joomla components - meaning, my audience is not the same as the developers audience, and so all that is accomplished is a component that is effectively useless for anything more than a shoddy hobby site.

Hopefully future versions will have the linkback credit able to be blended or hidden on the front end.

This component is a fantastic way to watch what your site visitors are doing in real-time. Aside from the obvious tracking and stat collection benefits, it's just darn cool to see who's looking at what, and where they're from.

Installed and working fine right out of the box on J!1.5.2. Kudos to the developer.
