Remote & Local Image Manager
This extension solved all my problems with media manager, and helped get some featured that I never though that I could get, such as drag and drop images, edit and rotate.
This should be integrated in Joomla core as one of the reviewers suggested.
Keep it up!

I've been using it for years (the old Joomla 1.5 free version), and I moved recently to the commercial version for Joomla 2.5.
It's a great component, and their support is great and prompt.
What I do hope to see soon is a plugin that allows Jcomments to work with Docman.

Thanks for your review. Support for JComment and Komento extensions is being added to DOCman 2.0 in the next alpha. We are also looking at adding support to the DOCman 1.x release.

great extension, and what is better is the user support.

Author Info Box
Works really great! I managed to have it work in no time!
The only think I don't like is that the name of the author, email, and website all appear in one line, which is not so neat.

For some reason "User - Profile" plugin is not saving Arabic "about me" text. But it seems to be a Joomla issue, not from the extension.
Owner's reply

Thank you for your review!

Yes, it is problem of the core profile plugin.

BT Content Slider
More than great!
I had to find my way myself through the css to make it work with Arabic (Right-to-left).
I hope in the new version that the arrows look better or can be placed on the sides of the module.
But all in all, more than great, and free!

Xpert Scroller
Very handy, and easy to customize.

Author List
Joomla lacks a way to show author info and a list of his/her articles. And this extension does it!

Very easy to use, neat, and east to install. This is a must have for any professional site that has more than one author contributing to it.

I have only two suggestions:
1. I hope there will be way to have an author box under the article showing the name, email, description, photo, and link to profile.
2. I also hope that authors are give the access on the front end to edit their data (at least the description).

I do hope this extension is maintained for the coming version of Joomla in the Future. Because I was using another extension(a commercial one!) for my 1.5 and I was shocked that they decided not to produce one for 2.5.

I was hesitant to use it, because it is a new extension, and I was worried that the producers might chance their mind and stop releasing updates. But I do urge them to do, because this really closes a big gap.

Keep up the good work!

Thank you!

I am working on the option to allow authors edit their info from the frontend... soon it should be ready.

Twitter Fan Page
I followed the instructions in the documentation, but it did not work.
It keeps showing a loading icon, but nothing happens.

I'm also not comfortable that a module that does not work knows my Twitter password, I'll change it!
Owner's reply

The module is now working and it has been integrated with Oauth .please find the complete demo here

A great extension. The only impediment for me to use it on my live sites is that I'm currently using Docman, and there is no plugin that will import my records and put them in JDownloads.

I hope something like that is done as soon as possible.

Exactly what I was looking for! I wish I had known about it much earlier.

The tackling of labels via labels.txt and having to upload it is somehow tedious. I hope there will be a future way to do that in the same screen while writing the article (maybe add something to the WYSIWYG editor that will facilitate that).

I highly highly recommend it.

This is an amazing extension.
I had several hackings lately, and I had to move to a new host, and wanted something that will keep an eye on my site, and I was blessed to find RS Firewall.
It even notifies me when any admin logs in, and from what IP address.
The only thing I wish was that it allows me to prevent certain admins from accessing certain components. Because what it does currently that if you prevent access to a certain component, ypu prevent it from all including yourself, which is impractical.

But all in all, this component is a must-have.
