jUpgradePRO
jUpgradePro is really convenient to use and configure. With Brian Teeman videos. The work is pretty straightforward.

However, if your website contains various external components or specific templates, the migration preformed by jUpgradePro is **useless**. E.g., K2 data is not migrated at all, and there is no easy way to do that.

It is a pity that the Joomla team did not foreseen any migration tool when they revamped Joomla from 1.5 to 2.x. jUpgradePro that they promote as THE solution for this migration is definitely **not*that*solution** for most websites.

Redaction Utility
5 minutes to install the plugin and to remove an unwanted link that took me more than 30' to try to hack to no avail. Redaction Utility made this so easily ! Thanks.

JSN ImageShow PRO
Pros:
- Easy to use
- A lot of configuration

Cons:
- Slow. The display of a page containing this plugin is really slow, even with few images
- Breaks with facebook Share plugins in the way that the only images visible by the plugins are the navigation images and not gallery images (workaround: add manually an invisible image in the page).
- With these two limitations: too expensive (and no access to forum in free mode thus it is not possible to verify it is just a configuration problem)
Owner's reply

Thank you for your honest review.

1. Yes, flash gallery is little slower than normal image presentation, but that’s the little price you pay for stunning presentation. Besides, it’s slow only for the first loading time. After that, flash file will be loaded from browser’s cache and run smoothly.

2. All issue of Free edition can be reported in free section of our forum. The forum is not entirely closed for free users. Anyway, in this JED listing we are talking about PRO edition.

Thanks again for the review.

News Show Pro GK4
Great free module very complete, although there are some negative points like the READMORE button showing up even there is nothing more to be read, no multilingual translation files provided and a weak activity on the forum.

Excellent module, very complete. Even the free starter pack. This version is not multi-lingual but the integration with joomfish makes it really easy to solve it.
