In my opinion Joomla should do resize images by default. Where Joomla stops, this plugin starts. Wordpress does this and so should Joomla.
I have been able to implement this plugin into my own custom built modules. I have a lot of customers who don't understand the concept of image size so this plugin means that I don't have to explain about resizing images before uploading them.
Thanks again for a great plugin!
I have developed many Joomla websites from 1.5 to 3. I am very used to a range of components and how to override their output. With this in mind I can honestly say that I found JomRes to be a nightmare!
JomRes does not integrate with Joomla in the usual way. They may pretend that it does but it simply does not. JomRes is built first and foremost as a standalone booking system. If you login to the admin side of Joomla the only JomRes page is the setup page. You cannot add or administer adverts in the back end, everything has to be done in the front end.
A major flaw is that your website ends up having two menus. One menu is your normal main menu and then you are also forced to have a second JomRes menu. There is no way to integrate the two menus. Normally Joomla components have a number of views which can be selected by setting up your menu items, JomRes has one. You cannot link to categories or specific adverts, you can only link to the home page of JomRes.
Template overrides are normally very easy to implement for the majority of Joomla components. JomRes works differently, you do not copy the template files into your own site template and then modify them. JomRes has it's own system, you have to modify files using their online file editor and then the changes are stored in the database! Surely code should be stored in actual files and not in the database? Surely this over inflates the database and slows down your site?
I can see how JomRes will work well on it's own but if you are building a Joomla site then you are doing so for a reason - to use the usual Joomla benefits. Essentially, you end up with a Joomla website with a link to a JomRes website. If you want a truly integrated solution (as I did) then look elsewhere.
A lot of people find JomRes very good so it might be fine for you, I just wish I had known what I know now before embarking on a Joomla site with JomRes.
It is definitely worth paying for this extension. The support is fantastic, if I have a problem then they fix it within 24 hours. I no longer have to pull my hair out searching through forum after forum trying to find an answer to my problem.
I would definitely recommend MijoShop, I will be using it on all of my future eCommerce sites. The cost of MijoShop is more than offset by the time I have saved using it over another non-commercial extension.
I had a couple of minor issues (my own fault) and the email support was very fast and very helpful. I still can't get over what I am getting for the price.
If you have a Virtuemart shop then this extension is a must. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank you so much.
My customer wanted a lightbox popup to prompt the user to buy gift vouchers when they access the site. The cookie feature works brilliantly so the user doesn't see the popup every time, I currently have it set to refresh every 7 days.
