R3D Floater
The instructions are good, but not great. I too created a "float" section and "floater" category. Additionally in the R3D settings, the module name should be "newsflash" (not mod_newsflash, which is what was throwing me off).

I wish I could configure this module to appear after a user has been on a page for a few seconds or more...

BIGSHOT Google Analytics
Happy to join the chorus on this one. Easy to install. Very simple interface. You only have to input one variable (UA Google Analytics code) and wait for the data. Many thanks for this professional plugin.

I spent much time trying to configure SEF friendly URLs, and this component turned out to be the most intuitive. It automatically configured my .htaccess folder, and the documentation is quite thorough.

I will preface this by saying I'm somewhat new to Joomla extensions, I'm but no means a web developer.

I paid $35 USD to download this component and was disappointed by its lack of documentation. At least on my site, it wasn't ready to go upon installation.

I had to make changes to my security levels via the FTP site so it would view properly in the Joomla admin area. I had to rename the htaccess file ".htaccess" and save it to the Joomla root directory. I followed what few instructions were available to me as best I could, and finally I gave up on this component after 5 or 6 hours of frustration and little progress.

I found ARTIO JoomSEF to be much easier to use right out of the box. That component configured and renamed my .htaccess file automatically, and I'm able to make custom SEF URLS. In literally minutes, I was up and running.

The research I did said I was to htaccess file and rename it to .htaccess and save it in the Joomla root directory. Easy enough, but
