One of the best ressources of the product is GreyHead, a very helpfull guy, with a lot of good ideas on how to solve things.
Most things can be solved via the 'building blocks' and with just small php codings added, it does a lot of advanced stuff.
The journey so far with this component has been long, but it is far from done, there's still a lot of potential left.
The support is good, and the component works, the documentation is a bit missing, but it's easy to figure out what's going on.
I would like to have more 'questionmodes' than the standardly provided, but so far it's quite good.
The price seems a bit high at first glance, yes, but they also respond within 3 days, and always with a sound foundation.
One of the best gems hidden in the higher subscriptions are the 'Auto Action', with that you can make all sorts of crazy and advanced automations for your users.
Their API is also quite well documented, and they are willing to help out if you need some sort of 'direct' access from another component to the CB data.
What can I say, in total, great job!
After testing tons of menues, a lot of them failing in our template, others looking bad, the choice fell on Art Wijmo.
When we encountered a problem, artetics took it serious, and solved the problem quickly.
The menu looks good, and has a nice dropdown effect.
So I opted for a slideshow, and one that impacted the page as little as possible, so a mootools based slideshow was perfect (as J already uses mootools).
We've now placed two slideshows on our landingpage, they work nicely, and with the feature of being able change if a slides points to to an article or webpage it makes it possible even for our small sponsors without a webpresence to be shown properly.
In the backend, it's very advanced with categories, and slides being managed, so it's very easy to update, publish or publish/ unpublish quickly.
The support forums has recently been reduced, so only subscribers can report bugs and problems, and that is problematic.
There is no proper way of reporting a bug now, unless you buy the subscription.
That costs a star in the grade for the editor.
Well, apart from creating a Joomla user in webtrees, and automatically logging them in, what other integration could there be?
And if it's not doing this for you, then there is a problem with your setup. Please ask for support in this case.
We've had a standard RSS feed going with dlvr.it as the feeder, but it is quite inflexible.
So I looked into this nifty component, and it does everything we need, and more.
We can even integrate our Jevents component with this.
When I asked about how to solve a specific need, the developer promptly replied, that can not be done, but it would be on a later release schedule, not only that, but a few hours later, a beta version was available, wow!
Good component, good support, excellent value.
This one does this without any hassle. We have used this on 1.6,1.7 and 2.5. When an issue crept up with a specific module that wasn't compatible with this, the support was fast and effective, and solved it very fast.
The only minor issue, is that the graphs miss the mark a bit.
Eg. if I have a value of 3, the the barchart is going to show below the line 3, and not right up to the line.
This problem certainly isn't normal. Please contact me so that I can investigate further.
