Recommend Friends
I really like your Recommend Friends. It is just what I need. I like the fact that it has captcha support to help stop spam.

I have it configured on three non-profit sites and it works, but there is no image in the box when I turn on captcha, just a missing image symbol.

If I go to the captcha configuration page, it says "GREAT NEWS!!! - GD Support and FreeType Support are both Enabled on your server!! The Captcha option of the component should work just fine!", and captcha on the right works and reloads when I request it.

So, it works on the back-end, but not on the frontend.

Thanks for creating this extension.

Thanks for your review! We have identified an issue with the Captcha image not displaying/showing properly on the Front End of sites that are located on 'Sub-Domains'. We have found the problem, modified the code, and for for versions of the component at 3.0.0 or above, this should not be a issue.

Thanks Again!

Featured Categories
I have a news oriented site and I wanted to show listings of articles based upon the category on the main page, must like newspaper sites do. I had tried other article tools, but they didn't work for my needs because they would just show related articles to a single article on a page.

This extension works great. I installed it and configured it with all of the categories I wanted to display. It works just as described in is just what I need.

You can see the site at

I don't know why there are gaps in some of the columns displaying the articles.

Thank you for your review... those gaps are due to css, I haven't put a lot on effort on the module stylesheet, although you could try downloading the current version where I have emphasized the existing statements so they are not overwritten by your templates css. It will get rid of the gaps.

Best regards!
