Really great functionality component it is like your own google analytic even better it shows live data and so much more.Installs with two click and it does what it is said to do... and that is really a lot.

The UI is giving me a brain hemorrhage. Really painful to look at. Cramming all available information on one page does not make you process it. On contrary it makes you ignore it or get lost in it. The reason that stopped me from giving the maximum.

To the developer/s:
You are amazing programmer/s no doubts about it. BUT pleeeeez hire a (interaction)designer to do the UI for the component. No offense meant.

No problem at all. Very good job.

The module is presenting incorrect data.
Reviews: 6
Left it installed for over 2 weeks and the information it was giving was total nonsense. Every day it reports differently to my server stats.

I then try it real time - I know visitors are there because I IRC them to test it. No sign of them - even tomorrow, yet they are in my server logs following day.

Will try something a bit easier to understand.

Hi, this might be because you didn't have the correct timezone of your joomla system or user. If you didn't see any visitors, also in Live Stats module, you probably didn't have the essential joomlawatch agent installed and published in frontend. There is an installation video how to do that. Even though many people use this extension without issues like this one, I will try to make things even more clear and user-friendly in upcoming version.

Fantastic component! Installed quick and worked right of out the box with no problems at all. I have web stats in Google Analytics and my hosting CPanel... but this is SO much easier, plus I can keep an eye on visitors and especially bots. This is something that should be put in core, in my opinion.

Oh yeah: It does display ads in the backend... but so what? Only admins see it and it's NO big deal!

Kudos to the developer. This is a truly great piece of work!

I was looking for an objective statistical module, and after trying several products I've stayed at JoomlaWatch. Great job! I wish you good luck from Czech Republic. :-)

One is the time on the main page (it's off by a whole day)

Second is the ban feature, you should be able to see a list of all banned ip's and then a clean way to un-ban them. With these 2 items fixed, it's an excellent product.
Owner's reply

Well, the site was offline because of the 3rd party extension I installed a day ago. I noticed that today at approx. 11 AM. After uninstall, everything was back to normal. My apologies, it was really unpredictable.
Regarding your second point: you can see the list of all banned IP's in Anti-spam tab. How do you imagine the better way to unban them? Thank you for any ideas.

I am impressed with Joomlawatch !

The information it produces, in real time, is better than watching TV. This is a must for any Joomla site admin who wants to know what is happening on their site.

Worked straight out of the zip archive :)

Thanks a lot!

This one of the few must have products for any site you create! Real time data and spam help that truly works. Just clicking the spam filter dropped my issues almost 100%!

The only reason and probably the only down side to the product is the extremely slow tech support. I do understand, there is a pay version for faster support. It you dont pay, you might not see help for a pretty long time. The good thing is, that once it's working, it WORKS!

works pretty nicely, don't mind the ads either but having the icon on every page of my site just doesn't fit.
can be hiden all right but then you have to pay so... won't keep it.
Great tool but not for my needs.

I had been using on my old non-Joomla site and it was always nice to see live stats. JoomlaWatch blows that out of the water with so many stat options to view... very impressive. Thanks!

Their website states: "The download link will appear here then. To deactivate the ads in your version - use the donate buttons below (if available)."

So, if you don't pay there are ads... Thats COMMERCIAL!!
Owner's reply

you are right, I've changed it to Commercial and added this section to description to make it more clear for users:

> 2 flavors available: or 9 EUR / 15 EUR (+ prioritized when answering support questions, link on donation page) (optional)
