This Joomla Extension works! You still have to upgrade all the old components, modules, plug-ins and templates, but it produces a working Joomla 3 environment in the Backend to enable you to do this.
I had problems mainly down to missing a module or plug-in, or not having the latest version, but any problems were very quickly sorted out by Barnaby.
Very highly recommended.
Would really recommend this module.
thanks for your great reviews!!!
we are so happy to add value to your website and business....
all the best from the Valley!
The only thing you have to remember is that there is only one article and therefore there is only one Article Ordering number so if you rely on this to sequence your articles in the categories you will have to think carefully about what to number the article in its base category.
This didn't prove a great problem for me and I think the extension is a real must have!
Great support as well when needed.
It worked straight away following installation (under Joomla 2.5) and I found it easy to configure.
When I wanted some help with the resizing of image thumbnails, I posted a query on the Kunena Forum and got a rapid answer which worked first time.
Great Job, great extension - highly recommended.
Many thanks guys - using it from a menu item and it works excellently.
I must say it's a little disappointing to get a four star review from a customer we couldn't quite satisfy, when we get no feedback at all from the hundreds of customers that we (presumably) did satisfy.
The main problem I've had is that Akeeba won't back up my jpg image files or mp4 video files, so I've had to create a mirror image of their folders on my PC (by downloading by ftp) and then copying to those folders under XAMPP. The localhost version of my web site now works well.
I would have classed this product as excellent if the backup had included the image and video folders.
If you're happy to work with this Backup Extension then it does what it claims.
At first sight this extension appeared as if it should do what I wanted but, in practice, it looked as if it was going to fail but Ari-Soft have been more than helpful and patient with me as I made request after request for what I thought would be changes but they kept supplying simple parameter changes until now I'm very pleased with it.
Very many thanks to Ari-Soft.
