I've used Akeeba Backup for years on every single Joomla site I've built and it has never failed me once! If you're not sure whether or not to install this, LISTEN TO ME VERY CAREFULLY: THIS EXTENSION WILL SAVE YOUR HIDE!
I do not think there is another extension anywhere that will make you a HERO to your clients like this one! I would give Nicholas and company 10 stars if I could!
A full restore takes me less than 3 minutes and you can even have your backups sent to another server (take that you silly hackers!!) I've had clients severely mess up their site and I could restore it to how it was this morning in less time than it takes to even begin to figure out how to undo what they did! I've been hit by hackers (thanks to a exploit in another extension) and in no time the site was restored!
Please, do yourself a favor and install this extension and then send the guys at Akeeba some money! They truly deserve it!
I've built hundreds of Joomla! websites over the years and the guys at JoomlaWorks consistently produce top quality stuff. The freebies are great, and the "pro" extensions are well worth the asking price. Whenever I've had an issue (usually with customization) the forums are active and a huge help. 5 stars!!
The only complaint I have is that there seems to be no way to modify the position of the date (I want it on top of the title). But heck, that's minor! I only deducted half a star!
Hi! That is possible now, since the 1.3.1 version.
