I recommend this to anyone for any contact form requirement. My hats off to the developer.
I spent a week trying to configure Tienda, with no documentation and no support. I finally gave up and installed Virtual Mart - one day and I was up and running!
This free shopping cart was all I needed for my small Ecommerce site, but if one of my customers has need of a more extensive shopping cart, I would still most likely use this one.
I guess intuitiveness is an individual call, but I did not encounter any problems setting this cart up. My thanks to the developers for continuing to improve it.
How do you setup and use a program with absolutely no documentation and very few replies on questions submitted to the forum.
Be aware before you waste your time that:
- there are features that don't work
- There is absolutely no documentation
- The developers charge a minimum of $100 for support to get normal questions answered.
The current reviews of this product trash Virtuemart, however, I downloaded, installed it and got it functional in one day. I am of the mind to believe that the revues of this product are staged
I'm sorry to hear you've had a tough time setting up Tienda -- you're definitely one of the few.
Regarding your points:
@bugs: Yes, as Tienda is still a beta, there are certainly bugs. In fact, we have a publicly-accessible list of reported bugs available here: http://projects.dioscouri.com/tienda/ Please, please, please report the bugs that you find so we can fix them!
@documentation: During your week of trying to get Tienda to work, did you happen to look at the documentation posted here? http://projects.dioscouri.com/projects/tienda/wiki/
@support isn't free: That's correct -- the growing Tienda community handles the free support (not the developers) and if you want direct support from us, you need to purchase a support subscription.
