Improved AJAX Login & Register
I've been using this for about a year now. It had a few little glitches a first but gets better and better. (support has always been good) The latest version has now been rebuilt with jQuery 'replacing dojo'. this is great news for me as my site is already using jQuery so page loads are faster and less bulky.

Five Stars!

Flexi Contact
I've used a lot of extensions some good, some bad, some very bad. Glad to say this is a good one. Simple to use - I had 2 forms within my articles very easily. When I came across a very minor issue support fixed it and uploaded a new version for everyone else within 30mins.

Very impressive :)

I have some very complex pages on a data intensive website, with many large database calls and large javascript applications. I have spent time optimizing with the usual CDNs, spritesheets, compressing JS and CSS etc.. but as soon as I installed this plugin the performance dramatically improved.

I haven't fully tested it yet but first run through everything works still and it was very easy to install.

The Geocode Factory
Maps are a key area of my site, I have 100s. I had tried and used a few different geocoding plug-ins and have been dis-satisfied with the results.

I’ve been using this plug-in now for a few weeks now and I have been impressed enough to write a review. This plugin has many features which are set out very well and easy to custom fit to your needs. The admin side and customization is very impressive, which is well laid out and logical. It allows you to customize the front end look in detail and gives you examples of setting it up.

5 ***** Stars – Ease of use and Admin setup
4.9 ***** Stars for Features (see later)

The front end seems to load very quickly, and I haven’t seen any styling issues or odd behaviour yet. The reason I haven’t given it 5 stars for features is it doesn’t have the feature I needed, in fact no geocoding plugin has (or is ever likely to) so 4.9 is probably being a little harsh :).

Code base and Support
Even though I needed this to do something that it wasn’t ever intended to do the developer still offered advice and support to help me out. I feel the developer went out of his way to help me to extend the code to do what I needed to do and always came back to me with 24hrs! The code is very well written and is a good guide of how to write components.

5 ***** Stars – Codebase
5.1 ***** Stars for support

From all the geocoding plugins I’ve used this is the best by far!
