NS Pro
This extension does exactly what it says it does and it is easy to install and use. Not only that the level of support is unsurpassed amongst Joomla extension developers. I've seen equal but none better. I had a minor problem with one of the features, submitted a support request and was replied-to within an hour. The problem was fixed within 2 days. I highly recommend this extension and this developer!
OSE Membership™
I just purchased this extension 2 days ago and have been working with it almost non-stop in order to set up a membership subscription for a service I am providing.

This extension is absolutely fantastic relative to its flexibility and capabilities. The Wiki documentation covers 95% of what you need to know to install and configure this extension and I highly recommend that you read through it at least once before jumping in. The product is not overly complicated but it does take a little time to understand it and avoid spinning your wheels

The support team on this product is also one of the best that I've encountered. I've submitted 3 tickets - 2 ended up being my misunderstanding of the configuration options and 1 turned out to be a bug. In all cases I got a meaningful and accurate response to my ticket within 1/2 hour of submitting it. Now, I wouldn't expect this rapid a response all the time and would be happy with a 12 to 24 hour turn-around but if this team can keep this pace going they are truly gifted.

If you need a robust and solid membership management and registration extension for Joomla you can't go wrong with OSE Membership - it's worth every penny!

Simple RSS Feed Reader
It may somehow be my mistake but two things happened. First, when I attempted to display feed items using Simple RSS Feed Reader on the same page as the standard Joomla Feed "mod_feed" Reader I got a white screen. I understand that this may not be possible, however then, when I attempted to uninstall the module there were two instances of "mod_feed" in my module list. I uninstalled the first thinking it was the one associated with Simple RSS Feed Reader and what happened is that the uninstall uninstalled both! Now I no longer have the standard Joomla mod_feed module. I do backups before installation of anything new so I can recover from this but people should be aware of this unexpected behavior.
BreezingForms
I've used the free versions of this product (FacileForms)for number of years and recently upgraded to the "Pro" version (now called BreezingForms) and I must say - this is still the best forms extension for Joomla that you can use - free or commercial. The few times that I've needed support I got a response within hours. Markus was very helpful, personable and professional in his responses. I felt like I was his only customer. His concern and commitment to solving my issues was genuine. Anyone claiming to have not received support must have had a bad email connection...

Thank you Markus and team for an excellent forms extension with excellent support! From my perspective the Pro version was money well spent!

Akeeba Backup
I honestly don't understand how anyone could rate this extension any less than 5 stars! In my opinion it is one of the best designed and best implemented extensions available for Joomla and an absolute must-have for anyone that needs to manage multiple Joomla sites. I've seen many "commercial" extensions that aren't as good and don't have the support that these developers offer for free!

Great Job! Keep up the excellent work!

AutoTweet NG
I am not sure why anyone would give this extension a poor rating - it installed easily and was intuitive to setup and make work. My only suggestion, and it is a minor one, is to add a "Configuration" option to the AutoTweet Manager page - that is where I first expected to see an option for adding my Twitter account information. The "Parameters" icon in the upper right wasn't as obvious to me initially. Like I said - this is a very minor suggestion which I am certain is clearly identified in the help documentation... I didn't read it first :-(

Great Job!
Owner's reply

Thanks for your review! I have noted your suggestion for implementation.

Core Design Access Text
This plugin does exactly what I needed it to do. Very simple to install and use. Version 1.0.1 is totally free as advertised. The developers web site does require registration but it is also free and it provides access to at least 11 free extensions as well as a number of active forums for getting support. I believe a previous negative review claiming "bait and switch" is mistaken - the author must have misunderstood the registration options on the developers web site.
