Event Registration Pro
For the price of this extension, there are better options out there which offer many more features and customization options. We used this component for several years, and it functioned ok, but we have since moved to a competitor and found the experience much better. With larger events, we simply needed more features such as QR codes, and did not want to pay these developers to customize their own commercial component for us. Support with Event Registration Pro never met expectations, and as a customer we definitely felt less than valued. It was a relief to move away from this component.

Who knew that making a sitemap just the way you want it could be so easy? Even with thousands of pages on our site, and extra components such as Mosets and K2, using this sitemap was a breeze. Tons of customization options, with very thorough documentation - and sensible default settings if you do not have time to go through everything. Technical support helped promptly and efficiently with the one snag I hit (which turned out to be a problem on my server settings - not a problem with the component). 100% recommended.

Canonical Links for K2
Ahhhh - solves one of the biggest problems with K2. This extension is magic. Does exactly what it says and not only creates canonical links but magically figures out exactly the URL you would choose. Kudos and thanks for the great work.

Slideshow CK
Using Joomla on multiple sites for nearly a decade, I now just accept that any new extension will require lots of fiddling and set-up time. Not so with CK Slideshow. Worked amazingly right out of the box, with tons of options to make your slideshow look great and fit with the rest of your site. I can't believe such a good extension is free... and I plan to donate to support this project. Bravo.
Owner's reply

thank you for your great review :)

Admin Tools Professional
I've used Joomla for years without writing a single review here - but I was so impressed with Akeeba Admin Tools that I had to chime in.

I can't believe I ever ran my site WITHOUT this tool. Very easy to set up, with thorough documentation, I had it running within 15 minutes. That process REALLY opened my eyes to how many basic changes you can make to your site to help increase security - along with many more sophisticated means as well.

Using this tool has also shown me that security paranoia is well justified. My sites - which have only low to moderate traffic - are the targets of basic hacking attempts several times each day (I had no idea).

While using this tool is clearly not the magic bullet for site security, it gives you a big boost in the right direction.

Thanks Nicholas!

Akeeba Backup
I can't say enough good things about Akeeba Backup. Fantastic! Also great documentation - you can use this tool even if you've never done anything technical before - and incredible support (often within minutes). The pro version with automation and S3 options is SO worth it.

Thanks Nicholas!
