I have been long time user of this component and now all those small problems it is working much better than before and the support has returned to its excellent grandeur.
I guess that it is like with most new versions once the differences are sorted then it will work much better.
Over the years I have tried almost every module, so I was interested in this one.
All modules are "easy to use" but this one REALLY IS and its FREE.
TEN Locations with = logos for each location + marker, Title, Address Lines, Phone, Fax plus a few other Parameters.
I am behind the Great Fire of China, so Google is sometimes slow but not with this module, it is amazing fast.
The pluginvalley website may look a bit OTT but the products are really good and well worth using
Top marks go to this module and the developer
your comments are giving us power..
BTW may be our site look OTT but you know WE ARE ALWAYS ONLINE FOR HELP AND SUPPORT!!!
The developers do a great job of upgrading it on a regular basis, and with the 'You can not go back' versions mean that once you upgrade you're stuck with it.
The component works straight 'from the box' as long as your box is Kunena shaped.
Should you get a bug or error then support is VERY slow and only comes from Kunena users, and the Kunena forum has so many "only post in the right category' you request for help will get moved and moved and maybe your never get an answer.
A good component is one that works 90% of the time and the other 10% comes from Support, Kunena has 2% Support.
It is interesting to read back in the reviews and note that in 2009 "This will become one of the best Joomla! Forums at all".
Well, in 2012 it still is having issues.
Good Support is just as important as a good component, maybe more.
Forget about the Banner Component, Forget about banner rotators, forget about paying money and then waste a week fixing a conflict.
This module is all you need as it can be linked to any page,
opening to the same window or a new window, you can set the images to move in all directions because this module has many controls for speed, transition, and size
This a very powerful and useful module to use.
Works straight from the box and it's FREE.
The component is Excellent
The layout is Excellent
The support is even more Excellent
Buy the SP upgrade start the migration to an easy site
Questions to the support are answered almost instantly
It does want it says on the tin
The component was easy to con-fig and the modules worked fine.
I want to make make my site a bit more interesting so I joined the Club as a silver Member and WOW all the add-ons, plug-ins and modules that it has just made everything come to life.
The basic version is good but that €40.00 was the best money spend and now it has some relly great addons, with the Managed Locations Addon, Simple Events Registration, Standard Image Uploads plus lots of other stuff
My members can add events, add photos and now add maps.
I just sit back and watch.
The support is first class and now I am adding my own little coding to it
Get the basic component BUT get the Silver Downloads and make life and your site better
BUT almost like clockwork (2 months) it throws an error which just gives you a white page or a error in the googleweather.class.php
So when the errors happens WATCH OUT
The issue with RokWeather pertained to the Google API and its gradual removal from Google's data servers. RokWeather now uses Yahoo and Wunderground, so please download an update to get the module working again: http://www.rockettheme.com/extensions-updates/1601-rokweather-1518-released
Full marks for the Module, I just wish others can come up with designs that fit the needs of the user as good as this
Very nice. Thank you!
