Flavio - the developer/programmer, is very nice and very quick to grasp and fix a problem. He is the guy to talk to.
Extension is sweet but there are few things that need to change or fix here and there. Like,
- Third party plugins and mods from Nooku framework, etc. They need to get handle on this vendor. It has some non-standard method of naming an extension which you may have deleted and caused you errors, and some problems during uninstall. Name in the manager area is not publish and I did remove it once but my extension died. Flavio said that was needed by Ohanah. So I reinstalled and its food again.
But the bottom line, Flavio can fix and give you answers. That is what I want for support. He is great and hopefully stays with them for a while.
I would give this extension an excellent except for those few snags and some threatening words from their supervisor.
Out of 5, 5 being the highest.
Extension - 4
Support - 4
Overall rating = 4
thank you so much for your nice review and words, and especially pointing us in the right direction to keep improving ohanah and our services!
It is a customer need that when a new software is bought, a vendor must at least provide some decent support within a few to get the customer on their foot. This is also a way for the vendor to know about possible bugs and unnecessary things that needs to be fixed.
First - Forget about support. They will ignore your emails. Or, will maybe respond after over a week when the fish are dead already.
Second - Some of the setup buttons saved and do not actually work.
Third - A lot of image buttons and they all show up as generic when not in used. Its very veyr very and extremely ugly on the user front end.
Fourth - Forget about your template CSS and formats. It bypasses it and use its own. Can not even turn it off and its way out of style. Ugly....
Fifth - Searching? It does not search the description. It only search the titles. I found out after too many tries.
Sixth - NO Manual/user guide. If you do not have support, at least have the decency of providing a user guide. That is extremely rude without anything. Its called ROBBERY here in the USA.
Too many more negatives, I do not have time to put them all here.
I could have given them FAIR if there is at least a user manual.
Score: 1 thru 5, 5=highest.
Recommendation: DO NOT BUY
The only problem I have and I hope it can be implemented next release is filtering of Blacklist and No logging list. Maybe Blacklist is not a must since there are a lot of those extension to use, but ability to NOT to log block of IP's is really important. For example, google 22.214.171.124/24 which is clogging my logs. Most of those crawlers should be filterable and no logs.
Great extension.... !!!
Please check version 3.1 for blacklist and list of IPs not to log
It forces users to fill out the user profile, but it has no option to logout. Users can not logout if they dont want to fill out the form. Instead they have to exit out from the page. The logout button has to be active to give them the opportunity to leave at that time and maybe with an XXX number of day, update it, if not, application will delete the user from database.
Then, that would be an perfect extension.
Will use your donate button later as soon as I get the next paycheck.
How do I make money... Well, I don't - not from free extensions anyway.
Most of these extensions were built for my clients. Because they opted to NOT purchase full rights, I released them for free. So my clients paid me to create them, but they didn't pay to own them.
There are several extensions I've created that are, sadly, not mine to give away anymore.
Its very simple interface got me excited on this extension and so easy to configure. Simple, Easy and uncomplicated for both users and admin.
For $10, for a full version and support, what more can you ask for. This is a great almost free bee I think compared to most rip offs in you where they are. Its a good program and has excellent potential. Eric is so great and very responsive. Hopefully, we can expand on this extension to be a major force in booking system. I'd say, move over guys ... !
A few modules are probably required to make it friendlier for the front end users.
1. The send button is not supposed to be enabled if checkbox / captcha images are not selected. But it is always enabled but no action if clicked. Once clicked, send button works.
2. The autofill fields are not locked. User can easily remove and replace it with something else not authorized.
3. The Send Button does not disable if checkbox / image not selected which is supposed to be per manual. No action nor message if clicked unless checkbox and image checked.
