Install and enter your IP address and now you can log in as any user.
This is extremely useful for anyone using a Joomla site to sell subscription levels.
It helps you to deal with support queries like "I can't see my stuff when I log in"...
With this plugin, you can log in as that user ans fix their problem. Very useful! :)
ZOO is powerful, extendible and flexible.
The content creation works by allowing you to create "Apps" inside the the component. This in turn allows you to create page types, and each page type has content elements.
For instance, you can create an app to present a product catalogue. You set up your types, say "Hardware and Software", then each of those types can have content elements:
Etc etc etc.
Then you simply create your pages and fill in the elements. ZOO takes care of the rest!
What's really good about ZOO, it allows you to control your content, especially if you build sites for clients. You set up your content types and this allows you to "pre-set" how the content looks... your clients won't be able to divert from this setting, therefore it simplifies content management for those who can't be trusted to use the native Joomla content component.
(I see it as "Content on Rails!")
And if you know your way around PHP and XML, then creating custom elements and content layouts is so easy.
In fact creating a new entire app is a simple process once you understand it.
But don't worry if you don't know PHP etc, ZOO is by far and away the most elegant, simple to use CCK for Joomla. It is extremely easy to set up and use and you will be creating excellent looking content in no time.
Add images, text, video, social buttons etc easily. Rearrange them with drag n' drop, and get your content looking the way you want.
Simple and easy.
RE: the gripes about support in these reviews. I haven't had any trouble with my support requests. Like any other software support, if you ask your questions in a clear and precise way, give examples and detail, support queries are answered quickly.
Seriously, you owe it to yourself to give ZOO a try!
