A very good component. As the author says, the component is doing a lot and offering considerable flexibility. This usually comes at a price of increasing the complexity of use. However, the help text provided for each field is very helpful and the author achieves an excellent balance between flexibility and complexity. Complete beginners to joomla might struggle but that isn't the fault of this component; joomla itself is complex and requires some effort to get to grips with all its features. The author has done a great job. I don't like the built in captcha and I have installed the multiple captcha engine; however i would like to use yet another captcha and would really like to integrate mine with it. maybe a project for me when i get time. I might even make a paypal donation I am so pleased with it!
