At any rate it's a moot problem at best. Everything else with this extension is quite easy to manage, it allows enable/disable of captcha on the 5 biggest points.
I am pleased with the function of the program it produces a very nice interface for adding & managing vehicle, rentals & sales. The name is a little misleading. Vehicle Manager is far more geared towards car sales/rentals. Thankfully they've had the forethought to build up the program with language files and so I was able to convert most of the fields to the boat terms my site needed.
I would have given top rating but I do have one problem in customizing. I had to customize a fair amount of the php function & template files. This is was easy to do, but limits me from easy updates. I can live with this, but I hope they consider producing vehicle type modules.
Their support is top notch, VERY quick in response.
It's SIMPLE to use. I used it for a news ticker, this + newsflash = CLEAN, simple, dynamic scrolling text, links, images, and about everything else I threw at it.
Keep up the great work!!
I would gladly give this extension, a 5 star rating if the documentation with it was better. As usability goes it's quite brilliant.
A little more organisation and detail in documentation would definitely make my opinion change from 4 stars to 5.
Thank you for a wonderful extension.
Hi, thank you for your review, see:
Thank you, Jan
Only 1 things that I can think of that I would ask for changes on. Execution results in errors if you've locked down (htaccess, password protected) your administrator. Which was fixable by copying the com_jfu files from the admin to the public access components. It would make sense to purely move permanently these files to remove this confusion.
Other wise this program has a lot to offer. Nice action and easy to use. Quick and very responsive. Upload function and graphics are nice, uses FTP if you have it. Allows for front and admin access, can include it on an article via module include. LOTS of nice configurations & parameters.
All in all very worthwhile program.
Thanks for the feedback,
not many people protect the whole administration area because this would mean the Joomla is not safe at all.
But in the next version I will place the tfu folder into the site area. Then you don't have to move the folder by configuration to the site.
Wish there was an option to create permanent thumbnails instead of caching them temporarily, as well as a "rebuild" function for changes. And a auto watermark.
Easy enough to implement on pages/articles but not for those unfamiliar with joomla module call tags and or the extremely "artsy types".
None the less I like this extension heavily, may cause me a little extra support time but for the look and feel I think it's worth it, AND I didn't have to code it myself. Keep up the good work!
BUT I could say it would be nicer still if there was a wysiwyg button for creating said links, for those that don't quite understand classes, targets.... I've met a lot.
Then again, I'll probably just set it up so whenever it sees a menu name or generic alias in the url it clicks into action, nice id 10 t proof method. (hence the 5 star rating!)
Open Source Excellence will have my business for future sites I construct from here on out so long as they keep doing what they're doing.
All the same installation is easy, captcha setup is easy, customisable fields are easy. All in all nice program but needs some extra development. I could see paying for a "pro" version of this software.
For what I need it wasn't quite enough, even though I could create multiple contacts. Besides the contacts it wasn't very customisable.
Regardless what I need though this component provided a simple effect secure contact form, and when I require a simple secure contact form down the road for another project I'm sure I'll use this one.
Keep up the good work!
