I have used this component on a number of sites already to great success.
Today I noticed a new way to use it that makes it even better. The component creates access levels when you set it up... because it can detect joomla template overrides.
When using the module manager you can then choose access levels for displaying given modules.
What a fantastic tools.
Thanks, I can't believe its still free
This module didn't work for me on first install... The third level category kept collapsing. I sent an email back to the developer, and the quirk was fixed within 24 hours. Similarly when the new K2 version arrived and there was some incompatibility, the developer once again fixed it right away.
This is a fantastic level of support for such an inexpensive module.
It is a quarter the cost of the alternative that is ranked much higher... And while it is simpler it is very fast loading and also easy to adjust the look, if you know basic css
Bottom line, and great module. Thanks.
I submitted a minor bug report at 10pm and received a polite note that the component was fixed and updated in the morning.
The only reason I'm not giving a 5 star review, is that the component is a bit confusing to learn. Its not quite as polished as RSForms, their marquee product.
Part of the reason it is hard to learn is simply that there are too many options... fine grain control over an app, always comes at the expense of simplicity.
Nonetheless, I would strongly recommend this product. The support alone is worth the asking price.
The particular strength of the locator component is the way you can have one location, and then tag it with different attributes.
Being able to then display all the locations that have "hockey sticks" or "soccer balls", turns out to be very useful. None of the other components do this, or do this as well.
I used this component on a client site who needed to show sales reps in different states. One rep was responsible for "Utilities" and "Commerical". Another was responsible for "Municipal". Having the tagging ability kept the database of reps understandable and allowed me to easily generate tag based maps.
When I first started using this component in early 2010, it was a bit buggy. I'm please to write in this review, that all of those bugs have been addressed. This is now a solid component, which I'd recommend to anyone. Well worth the price.
