Make sure your images are exactly the same dimension as required by the module otherwise you will see a noticeable degradation in quality from them being resized, presumably by PHP/GD's default jpg compression setting on your server installation. Alternatively you can increase this setting using a PHP directive in an appropriate place in the code.
Support by the developer is fantastic, very friendly and useful.
Would be nice to have a simple module in addition to the component, which displays a single movie.
Thanks for the review. There is a module for displaying single movies... Look for XMovie Movie module.
I think we should stay with the facts:
*1* You sent two tickets, not three.
*2* The first ticket has been submitted on June 3rd, 2011.
At this time we reorganized the support and made clear - on support ticket submit - that there will be delays.
The reorganization is now complete.
It was also a general before purchase "license" question and not a support question. These questions we answered later than the regular support questions. I think it is understandable that customers who paid already come first.
*3* The 2nd ticket has been submitted on friday July 8th, 2011 and got answered 1.5 business days later. This is absolutely ok.
Great support, simple component to setup and use.
This component can be used by novices. I've been using Joomla! for 5 years.
Today I had a couple of problems (turned out not with sh404SEF), which they helped resolve very quickly - thanks to jimie and shushima.
The extension also includes some worthwhile security features and for some extensions e.g. Virtuemart, is essential because Joomla!s SEF doesn't handle them well.
I've had a brief look at the new Google Analytics functionality, which could be very useful but I won't be using it until they have a secure solution for storing and reading the GA authentication. They do say that you should just create a new GA account for each domain if you don't want your username/password compromised but this is a work-around that requires a change to our business processes.
Very good extension.
thanks for your kind review. A note on the Analytics password. I'm sorry if our wording makes you think there is any security flaw there. There is not, and a change in storage method is not researched nor needed. Your credentials are stored in a file on your server, just like Joomla stores your mysql password or your smtp email password. This is very secure and does not cause any issue.
Our advice was more a no-nonsense kind of remark, whereby we advice to not use the same password on each and every email account or website credentials you use, so as to avoid having all your accounts compromised if only one of them is uncovered
