I had long been in search (no pun intended) for a better and more versatile search experience, when I first stumbled upon Mijosearch. In my book, you get a whole lot more than you pay for with this product and with it's plugin system it is extremely versatile and let's you cherry pick after your own needs.
The _only_ thing less than perfect of this product is that the css and html design for the front end perhaps don't quite match - at least mine - template out of the box. But give your CSS some love, and you will be amazed at what great search experience you can give your site.
All the best.
The things you can do are just amazing, and the user interface for editing is extremely friendly.
A nice addition would be a plugin that allows for the slide shows to be included i Joomla articles etc. It also would be awesome if you could copy slideshows and move specific slides between different slideshows.
None of this is show stoppers how ever - the component is amazing just the way it is - great work!
Aside from the obvious, my main criterias have been:
- Instantly understandable
(if I can't understand it in 5 minutes, how will "my" users ever?)
- Easily maintainable for admins and managers alike
(nobody wants to "admin" more than necessary - hence the product must be rightly configured out of the box without any fuss)
- Preferably with mobile support
Finding this has been easier said than done, but just the other day I found CRMery and couldn't believe my eyes. It had everything I ever sought for - and then some! At the moment there seem to be some small, early bugs to crank out, but I have all the confidence CRMery will fix them with time along with awesome features.
CRMery is worth every penny and I'm sure I will be a happy customer for a long, long time.
This would be VERY easy to achieve if Joomla modules had unique ids...
btw: hey joomla developers, where are you???
