Thank you for your review.
If you have a RocketTheme membership, you may post your suggestions for configuration options in our Requests forum to see if it would garner some attention:
I'm moving back to reCaptcha though, which has everything to do with the costs for the paid version (to remove the "free version" tag etc). As the cost is per website per month or year, it gets to be a lot for a bunch of sites. Pity!
Thank you very much for you review. Your comment gives to me power to continue developing plugins and components. I focused in speed and security (facebook spies us, you know :p) and european cookie confirm law support (in pro version).
It takes some time and effort to figure out the first time, but with the help of the excellent documentation that's easy. Once you've figured out what your perfect settings are, you can just reuse them and it takes no effort at all to configure.
I'm so happy with this extension that I think it's well worth the money spent. I also believe it's an absolute must for any professional Joomla! web designer. It professionalises your work.
The past few years I've been using the paid version, so I can offer my clients events subscription and all the other good stuff. It's well worth it!
The backend gives you endless options to configure and I am very happy with that because I'll avoid coding at any cost ;-)
The one thing that could be improved I guess are the themes, but with a bit of styling that's easy to fix.
I was ashamed to see I hadn't reviewed it yet; it deserves better, so I'll remedie that now :-)
Thanks guys and keep up the good work!
Also, my sites have been hacked before. Akeeba Admin has put en end to that so far, but just in case it's a safe feeling to have a working backup at hand.
I've spent the money and bought a subscription, and it's money well spent.
Keep up the good work!
I think with a few minor enhancements this tool could be even greater, but, as said, it's quite perfect already! Thanks guys for sharing this!
One of the things I don't like, is that any time you make a minor change to an article, all the likes and shares disappear. I suppose the same happens to comments, although I haven't tested that because I don't want comments on my site. I tend to change articles for a while after I've published them. That means that every time I change even just metadata, I loose all the cool thumbs ups! I understand this from a business logic perspective: It isn't the exact same article people voted for anymore, but I'd certainly like it to be different!
A minor problem I've encountered is that sometimes the article picture isn't picked up, and sometimes the article meta description isn't picked up when sharing. Cancelling the share and retrying a few times seems to do the trick however.
Over all, a good extension!
