The service is even better though. I had a problem/request. Within a few hours Bob had added code and sent a revised version. Thanks Bob - someone who understands decent business practices!!
Uploaded the site to the live server and everything is broken. Wasted 1/2 hour more trying to make it work. I think much of the problem is the author's penchant for absolute paths throughout the component. A recipe for chaos after moving a site.
Would never recommend or try again. Had to delete it off the live site and install an alternative. A time waster.
I'm sorry you had problems. A lot of effort has gone into ensuring that a new installation of Remository will work immediately - and this seems to have paid off in the opinion of a number of reviewers.
Absolute paths are not used on a whim - they are used because they do not restrict the user to placing the file repository within the document root - it can be placed absolutely anywhere that can be specified by a legal path. Also, if you stick with the default of storing files in the database, migration requires only the transfer of the DB tables.
There is a brief Remository FAQ that describes exactly how to handle site migration, which should only take a few minutes to implement.
No it's not a super powerful, whizz-bang extension, but it is EXACTLY what the author claims - a very simple image rotator.
A pity that other reviewers didn't read the preamble that said it works only with same sized images and then gave it 1 star because it didn't do resizing or keep ratios the same...
Well done Jesus! Great lightweight entrant!
I'm not sure who everyone else was speaking to, but the "support" I got was very, very sad. I've had support tens times as good on free extensions. Telling a customer, who asks how a picture can be inserted in the background, that "This is rather standard HTML and CSS usage, not something that is specific to RSform!Pro" Thanks......
RSForm! Pro does far more than basic forms, as proven by the built-in features (multipage forms, conditional fields, dynamic field validations, 3rd party integrations, embedding PHP code etc).
Even though we do not provide HTML, CSS or any kind of code-oriented training (as specified in our Support Policy) we do try to do our best in helping out customers, even going the extra mile. I'm sorry that you felt this way and chose to leave this review without even trying to look at the articles and examples we've provided you with.
It's a good calendar tool, though it has some display issues where the available room for it is small (it does not display well in a 600px space - there are overlaps). I had a 1000px wide site with 2 200px sidebars and it couldn't handle it. However, I selected not to display the right side bar and it displays well at 800px.
Support is generally good, though I have experienced a few unanswered emails. But a big kudos to them, when I complained about it Jtag really got onto it and made it right.
For it's purpose, this could become #1 with the addition of a couple of items - the most pressing, IMHO, is emailing a user when they register to confirm details and sending a copy to the admin.
This was an easy install, worked perfectly first time, and I had no issues.
Would love to have seen more of this is J! 1.7, but this little mod helps a lot!
It's a powerful extension, but easy to learn and understand. Phoca was a nightmare trying to get into the dev's head and figure out what he was thinking. Ignite was logical and well thought out. The online dox were a little thin given the amount of options, but they were all pretty self-explanatory. If anything, for me, tool tips in the back end would be all I would change.
First gallery took longer to upload than Ignite did to set up. Brilliant!
BlogPing is just the ticket. It now gives me back the ping function I had to leave behind with JaggyBlog.
THIS EXTENSION IS A MUST HAVE IF YOU'RE SERIOUS ABOUT PROMOTION OF YOUR SITE. PERIOD!!!!
Thanks for your review. I hope my plugin will help you.
Would just like to know how to get the 2 lines above and below the links as shown in the demo. Other than that it's still a 5*!
You can get the lines with simple css styling. The navigation links are placed within a table with the css class "pagenav". Just add the following lines to your Joomla template's css file:
border-bottom: 1px solid #CCCCCC;
border-top: 1px solid #CCCCCC;
margin: 1em 0;
You can do even more styling for the next and prev link texts by modifying the css classes "pagenav_prev" and "pagenav_next".
But we had a problem where the tab was appearing in the "Add an image" dialog box. I added some code as specified by Dan, the dev. It didn't work, so he logged into the site and spent considerable time fixing it. Turned out to be a problem with the Artisteer template. Thanks Dan, you're the man! Couldn't ask for better help and support. Wish all devs were like this.
Display articles in a particular Section/Category as a bulleted list. Excellent! And straight out of the box.
I tried the Easy mode and it sure was - though without a lot of control (obviously!). The next level was still simple but with more control over the form. The expert (I think it was called) mode - the most flexible - is still a breeze to use. But, for me, the biggest plus was the pixel perfect ability to specify field/text locations. So many form makers limit you to one field per line. This is how it is in easy, but in expert you can have as many per line as your site will allow width wise.
Easy to use, yet flexible and powerful - a great extension!
And the support! Wow!! Emails are answered extremely quickly and he is always helpful and open to suggestions.
Just one thing to be aware of - not a fault of the extension though - your syntax must be perfect. I know that sounds logical, but here's the deal. I had a file called APARTMENTS.png. Having the file path showing APARTMENTS.PNG doesn't work. Took me ages to figure that out.
But the extension deserves at least 5 stars!!! Great work!
I installed it in the template and it failed woefully. The menu ran over the top of elements below it (breadcrumbs and a module), some options didn't change anything regardless of the settings, and there was no way to change the font in the module.
I wrote quite along email back to the developers telling them what I had experienced and some suggestions for improving usability. I heard nothing and sent a second email to which they replied they had emailed me asking for the URL. I never received this email. Because the site I wanted it on was live for client viewing I installed it on a test site that was live and it developed another problem - the sub menu refused to hide and was off to the right and well down from the main menu line. I sent them this URL and they said it was my template "...so many place "position: relative;" This is not proper css." I'm a real newbie in CSS, but I thought relative positioning was "proper CSS". The reference book I have certainly says it is.
I wrote back and asked for a refund as I do all my templates in Artisteer, so it seems the product would be useless. They replied that they don't give refunds, but they would change my template.css if I sent them the file. I declined.
Bottom line: If you use Artisteer, or lots of relative positioning, this will be a failure. I could not recommend this product.
We already help you regarding that matter. But you are not responding in that matter because you are not sending me your website detail other wise we change your template css.
If you give the Div id and make it css for that div id than we must require to change there css.
My module is working fine in more than 100 website. Check it my demo. Really very surprise about that review. We are helping you and you are add bad review here. We already send you mail check it about that.
Show my module in my demo. Its working there. Means my module is working fine.
