News Show Pro GK5
Very nice extension, I often use it for news-blocks that need a consistent layout. Especially the image cropping possibilities always give me a good solution.
Setting it up sometimes takes some time due to the large number of configuration options.

JoomShareBar Pro
Excellent plugin, this will become my standard extension for social media icons. The design options are really nice, but what makes it stand out are the options to lazy-load everything, so that performance is not affected.

Very nice plugin for sitemap generation. Very flexible, and I especially love the Webmaster ping options.

Fast Social Share
I replaced the social share buttons that I first had with this one, and had an imeediate jump in site performance. Very much recommended!

SP Upgrade
So far I usually rebuilt 1.5 sites, as they bwere usually quite small, but the latest upgrade was for a very large site. First tried Jupgradepro, which more or less managed to transfer everything, but the categorie structure was lost, so I decided to give SPupgrade a try. Very smooth upgrade, in just a few minutes!

Non-SEF to SEF
Very nice plugin, does exactly what it promises, and no more, which makes it very convenient for users who are less experienced.

JD iDEAL Gateway
The extension does exactly what it needs to do, perfect. Struggled for a while with SSL, but this was solved by the developer very swiftly.

JCH Optimize
Very good, Google's page speed increased from 64 to 84. Nothing more to say ;)

JB Type
Very nice plugin, results in excellent styling very easily.
Too bad the JCE plugin that should work together with this plugin could not be installed due to a message that no plugin-file was specified.
Owner's reply

Hi there,

The JCE plugin actually needs to be installed via the JCE plugin installer. It isn't unfortunately able to be installed by the normal J installer.

Only a small problem with a specific checkout setting, but after reporting it on the forum I received a fix for this, Also my general questions weere ussually answered within hours.

Very nice plugin, does exactly what it promises. Just had some trouble finding out how to redirects where the original URL has questionmarks, like index.php?item..... etc, but found out that you need toescape these with a backslash.
Received reply from the programmer within an hour for my question.

AcyMailing Starter
Excellent tool, I could set up a newsletter in no time without having worked with any newsletters component before, rebuilding one of the standard templates for my own purposes.
