No hacking, no meddling with code, just simple syntax and there you go! An embedded video or music file within your SobiPro entry! And all this in a free extension.
Thanks a lot for a fantastic plugin. This is a must for any serious Joomla and SobiPro developer.
The only drawback that I could find is that some non-latin characters are not displayed correctly in the tooltip, but I'm not sure if it is the fault of the plugin or Google.
Apart from that, the plugin does exactly what it says it would.
All in all, an excellent addon that I'd recommend to anyone using SobiPro.
However, there is one difficulty if you plan to stick to the free version of the component - its rather hard to understand what's going on and how to do things because the learning curve is quite steep - you have to go through the support and discussion forum a lot and be prepared to ask lots of questions. That is because of the fact that while the core is (and will always be) offered for free, the addidtional addons, access to documentation and prompt developer support require a subscription.
I do not mind such a business model - in fact, I fully support it because looking at the complexity of the component I can see the huge amount of work the developers put into making it. It just makes things a bit difficult at first if you want to use this solution for a private, non-commercial site.
However, if you're developing a professional, commercial website, this is the component I would fully recommend if you need a powerful directory.
One of its greatest advantages to me is the possibility to use it as a plugin, with all parameters configurable from within the command line. This fact makes content-aware forms possible and easy to implement.
The only drawback that I've noticed so far is that it's not possible to send two different messages with one form (one to sender - like a confirmation - and the other to receiver).
But the best thing of all is the absolutely relevant, professional and quick support from the extension developer!
