sigplus
Works great for photo galleries, slideshows and gallery previews. Captions and ordering are easy to configure, layout can be chosen/adjusted at will. Pages load quickly, good use of caching. In other words: it does all it should do, and it does it excellently!

CComment Core
This could be a very helpful component: it does all I want and more, but some features are buggy, e.g. the submission date of a comment is reset upon editing. Maybe it would be better to drop a few features and make sure the 'core' comment system works OK?
Owner's reply

Thank you for the review, but I think that it is misleading for the JED users. The component is not buggy & there is no reason to drop any features in order to get the so called "core" comment system working.
Instead of writing a bad review, it would have been way better to report the bug as this user did:

https://compojoom.com/forum/47-bugs/18967-date-disappears-after-editing

Please note: we don't offer any configuration support for the core version, but if someone reports an obvious bug with steps to reproduce it - we will fix it!

So, if you let us know what else is "buggy" in your eyes and if it is a real bug, we will fix it!

cheers,
Daniel

GPXTrackMap
A great way to employ the free Open Street Maps on your site. For basic use, it is not too difficult to implement. The documentation is thorough and there are many possibilities to adapt and transform this plugin. And most important: it loads fast! So thank you for this marvellous plugin!

VitaBook
Vitabook does a very good job:
- Easy to set up and configure, a very clear interface in the back-end
- Possibility to reply to guestbook messages
- Appearance can be easily altered by adjusting css stylesheets etc.

I was very content with it, until the release of Joomla 3.2. Vitabook is not (yet) compatible with Joomla 3.2 and it is now impossible to leave messages from the front end. The avatar system is not accessible. Vitabook has announced this will be sorted in an update coming the first week of December, but meanwhile there is no alternative but to revert to Joomla 3.1.6. So new users had better wait for the update!

Thank you for your review. Glad to hear you like VitaBook.
You are right, we had some problems with the update to Joomla 3.2. However, last week we've rolled out our latest update (v2.2.0) which comes with many improvements and is fully compatible with Joomla 3.2.
