In grid mode it somewhat works, but standalone it doesn't. In grid mode the sync between user db's isn't working in firefox on linux. This doesn't work on standalone either.
I do think that the focus should be on standalone first however as most are on localhost working on the software with a grid mode not being the stronger necessity until it works proper in standalone.
The other suggestions would be to verify that the syncing etc.. is working on both windows and linux.
I hope you continue with this as there are more than a few that would love to have this working.
I did talk before hand with some running OpenSim and almost all had gridmode running. So I focused first this version. But I agree and dont worry, I'll have a look to standalone as soon as possible :)
I'm more worried about the message not working on FF on linux. All my linux's are server and dont even have a graphical desktop installed, so I can not reproduce this issue.
If you're interested, I invite you to my forum at http://www.foto50.com/forum to post more information about it (maybe with some screenshots) so I can have a closer look.
On desktop, I'm a windows user (yes ... guilty) but I definately do not want to neglect linux desktops!
But if you need a good integration for off site commenting services, this would be the real deal.
Downfall is, every time you load a page, it connects to the off site service and slows down the load access times. If the off site service is having issues, you may not have a page load. That is certainly not the issue of the plug however, but I found the outside service to not be acceptable.
I only use GNU/Linux operating systems. And for some reason this software crashed Firefox a couple times. That and, a couple times it just hung. Would be better to keep Joomla proggies within a standard way to operate in Joomla in my opinion.
Forms are okay. Code that I viewed looked okay. This is, in my opinion geared towards someone that has never hand written a form. Which does have it's place.
Your review shows that you clearly dont understand what is going on under the hood :-)
Our extensions DO use the "STANDARD" way of doing things within Joomla, you might be confused upon first seeing our application because we HIDE the extra Joomla menus to give you MORE SPACE to work within our app (Screen real-estate is a premium), but things are still very mmuch within Joomla.
We also use standard libraries such as jQuery and xAJAX which are widely used in web applications. We dont really go off and do our own thing :-) except where we need to in order to bring you the best Forms Extension for Joomla Ever!
bfForms is developed on a Ubuntu machine using Firefox - I dispute that you would ever have issues with using this combination - I challenge you to use a new Firefox profile (to remove any extension and settings) and try again - you are the only person to report this (Maybe you should have asked for support rather than only giving our product 2 stars!??)
The output of bfForms is as close to xHTML standards as we can acheive :-) We pass all xHTML tests!
Thanks for using our application, even if you totally misunderstand how we do things...
Add this plus firebug, gedit, and web developer plugins for Firefox and your down the road in style. Or style sheets.
Thanks for the code!
Jumi is a great work and I see no reason to not continue to improve on it. It's a main stay in the list of first installations on a joomla site.
Keep up the good work. And thank you for your contribution to Joomla.
1) You have a list now of all the logins and no way to purge the list. I had to do this manually in the database. Not good and this should be priority number one. There need be a way to purge the list.
2) Grouping. You need to group IP by login or username. This was also mentioned with the other review. If I login 400 times, this should only show under my username. Not all mixed and mashed in the same page with all other IP. So some grouping is needed here.
Other than that, I like it. But it is close to unusable without being able to purge some data. And no one really wants to do this manually, it's to time consuming.
Would like to see these improvements, this could be a very useful tool.
Please check version 2.0
