But did you think about how visiters browse and search your extended content types?
In my humble opinion, these are the major reasons to use COBALT as your Joomla CCK:
- Advanced Search and Filters
(total results are shown before any search is made)
- Multiple Types per section
- Moderator Manager & Notifications
- Template-based in all parts
Definitely try it out – it's FREE!
Even more advanced modules and fields can be purchased seperately for lifetime! or accessed via club membership. Check them out as well!
- Parent & Child relations!
- SSI (Simple Sale Interface)
- Geo Field & Distance Search
If K2 is an extended com_content, and ZOO is the pretty iPhone of a content component... than MintJoomla COBALT is more like Drupal7 Fields and the exposed filters of Views ;-)
I have to repeat myself and I will use the same statement I used for its pre-decessor "ME Resources": This Extension makes Joomla! a full-fledged CMS and ContentBuilder.
I guess, Pros & Cons may vary on each personal application... so, the following are my own experiences and needs.
You can assign the Plugin to certain MenuItems. It seems to offer all current SuperSized features.
Because it is a plugin, you can't use multiple instances. Therefor, you can only use it with one configuration! i.e. 1 image source folder. Or 1 flickr gallery. A module solution would be more versatile, because you could use different folders and different modes!
Currently no PNG overlay as default or optional parameter.
If you just need one instance, or you see another technical benefit in the plugin architecture, than buy it. I have to admit, that the support is kind and listening. More features might be included in the future.
If you need multiple and different display modes on one site, you might checkout a module-based version.
If you want to try SuperSized, without paying a buck, than lookout for a free version in this extension category ;-)
We listened to our customers needs, including this one and we now offer this extension as a module as of July 2012. It just made more sense. Now you can have multiple galleries on your site. There are free solutions, but we offer full support and free upgrades for a year.
Filed under contacts, but rather an underrated form component. I am surprised and will definitely keep an eye on it. Bookmarked for future projects!
Simply give this extension a try! It backups the whole file and folder structure and even the database.
Another major benefit: The backup and restore procedure is lightningfast compared to FTP!
It saved my life and the whole project. Simple as that. I will definitely check out the PRO version...
- filter/select a profile based on cb field values and conditions
- a special timeframe parameter allows "member-of-the-day" etc.
- display additional cb field values
In short: Great module, very fast support.
Thank you very much for your work and efforts!
Why did i choose Attachments? Because it is usable and intuitive for the average user. I needed a simple way to share and update files and related documents in FRONTEND. I think i have tried almost any possible download component out there... finally i came back to Attachments. Only DOCmans simple upload steps come close to this.
The ability to use the Joomla articles for categorization and descriptions is real fun. (in v2 also for categories and sections)
The frontend upload and edit is as easy as it can be.
Thank you very much for this great piece of software.
You can create automatic menu-items for sections and categories. In other words, you can expand joomla categories and sections. The real beauty about it: the output options. i.e. category name as static title or clickable links. Or even as a select-box. A handy little gem: The ItemID selection has a fixed and a smart option.
Never tried the suckerfish menu templates. But i have seen them in some templates.
In Joomla 1.0 days, the awesome splitmenu option was my highlight (something you know from J1.5, right?! )
I would really like to see it for J1.6+ ;)
