If your data is static. The flashCharts plugin is simple to install, configure and well documented. Copy an example, add your data and you will have a beautiful chart or graph in less time than it took me to write this review.
I spent four hours writing a little php application for a graph and ported it into joomla with jumi. I installed and configured the php option of this plugin in 4 minutes. Wish I would have seen it first! Every J developer should check this Plugin's documentation -- clear examples, known conflicts, work-arounds, all in one page! Bravo!
It installs easy. No need for support -- it runs right out of the box. It has a ton of options and it is easy to configure. You can, simply(!!!)override the settings in the call to the plugin. It is light. My sites run faster and with less layout problems than with one of the commercial lightboxes I paid for.
The demo site is in German so it takes a bit to figure out some of the settings. When that support site is translated this plugin will go to the top of the Joomla users "must-have" list! Danke!
Only the demo site is in German. The project site and support forum are in English.
Thank you for your review!
It is easy to install. Easy to configure. Easy to use. You don't have to resize or label. Just put your images in a directory, point the plugin there and it does all the work.
If you want a quick and easy slide show, this is the one. But it has a ton of options as well. It floats and can be place in it's own div tag easily.
The css show is great as well, giving your site some variety.
I've had some problems with the licence system but they have always been resolved with a simple support ticket. If you need a reservations system. jomres is the answer.
