at the moment, there is more than 100 extensions available directly from ARTIO - see http://www.artio.net/en/joomsef/artio-joomsef-extensions for complete list, plus many more from 3rd party developers.
Nothing bad there.
The component adds a link to the developer page in each single page of your website... this is fair enough for a free component.
You can pay to remove that.
Here comes the big surprise, when I saw that I actually had to pay so that other components such as jevents or phocagallery are turned SEF.
Is even better when you have to pay each 6 months a quantity for 3rd party applications to stay SEF, a quantity btw higher that the cost of a website hostage for 1 year.
And all this for joomla a GNU program.
Is obvious that this component learned something from its competitor in joomla, and you should draw the line between commercial purpose and dignity. Same for this website supporting named "free extesions".
You should earn money for your work, you have many ways to do that with publicity donations etc, but having to pay each 6 months for every single application you support is not worth it.
please, let me give at least short explanation.
Please understand, that supporting more than 100 3rd party components to make SEF URLs for them is not too big fun. Especially in case when the code of these components is developing all the time so you need to update the extensions from time to time. It takes a LOT of time and also resources. That is why we ask payment for some of the extensions and why the free updates are available for a limited period of time only.
In case you do not upgrade the other components, you can stay with the current version and do not need to upgrade or pay anything extra.
Additionally, our philosophy is that we charge mostly for components, that are meant to serve for commercial purposes or are commercial themselves, such as e-bussines, paid directories, real estate sales, etc. For free components, we try to keep free extensions also.
sorry to hear that and sorry to say this, but I think that having wrong server configuration and being not able to fix it is not reason of giving bad review.
It is not just for nerds, both of the problems you describe are well explained in FAQs, including solutions. Did you read it at all?!

What a blast, about 3 min. of work!!!
An more, I have a third party extension installed, and it was supported by ARTIO but costed a bit of money. This installed extension was showing up at my site really f**ked up!!
This made me really mad, but as I looked at ARTIO I learned that I could turn the SEF off for this extension!! WOW, this turne my madness into hapiness again!!
I really recomend ARTIO JomSEF!!!
And I will by the support for my extension!!!
Cant say to many times, This extension is a must!!
The only grievance I've had is that it has reverted back to free edition (once), but that was due to a bug in their new upgrade system, which was resolved within a day (got updates via email about the progress). It is definitely a must have for me and my site, even the J! default compatibility is so good that it works brilliantly with JFusion (even though JoomSEF is not officially supported by JFusion).
It is a bit annoying that there are many paid plugins, but the support I have gotten from the ones I have purchased made it worth the few bucks I had to cough up.
But installing it should not be done lightly. Be prepared to read through the instructions, check out the FAQ etc, as it is very easy to take a wrong turn, and end up with tons of 404 pages. In most cases, these are easily solved, and the most common ones are covered in the FAQ. It should not be taken lightly, it is easy to mess up!
Ehm, an automated answer? I really do not think so, how did you get this idea?
And that it is buggy? I cannot claim it is 100% bugless, no software is. We are still improving it. However I am not aware of any serious bugs. Maybe it was just configuration problem?
Anyway, saying something is buggy without saying how/why or giving any other argumentation is meaningless as equals just throwing a dirt on somebody. For sure that does not help other users to maky any relevant opinion neither it helps us to possibly improve something.
We appreciate any feedback, both negative and possitive as it helps us make the product better, but I have to note that feedback as yours is completely useless.
* many plugins for it are paid
* many free plugins are... hm... bad...
I thank authors a lot for their work, but I still prefer sh404SEF.
But! For simple sites without forums, directories but with lots of articles and pages this plugin is MUST-HAVE!
I don't know why people are complaining about spam links. Just about every open software has a courtesy link back to the author's site. Personally I didn't like the way it was situated.
I found where the link code was and modified it, however, I didn't remove it. The only changes I made was:
1.) Link to Artio site is centered instead of left-aligned.
2.) Link to Artio site now opens in a new window(_blank) when clicked.
As for people claiming their site is broken. If you manually set a URL to yoursite.com/coolpage.html (especially if a custom URL) and then you uninstall whatever SEF component you are using then that link will no longer exist. Or, if in articles and so forth are linking to the SEF URL and uninstall the SEF component then same as before, links no long exist.
Artio does not like/irreparably alters my website when I uninstall. If you are wanting to try this program beware that you may not be able to remove it. (NB. This may just be I am doing something wrong. however when I uninstalled I got nothing but 404 errors...)
2nd Whilst I completely agree that if you like something you should pay for it. The link hopefully advertises to potential new software buyers. Is it possible that the advert be less intrusive??? Perhaps at the footer? Most people are commenting that it appears to be 'plastered' and having used it there is only one link on every page though this is a very visible link that may intrude on a website.
Very good module. And definitely worth paying for which would alleviate all of the negative concerns so far commented on.
I had my problem solved in less than 1/2 hour
NICE Product!!! Paid subscription btw
i did full install with all plugins i needed and it broke things in the site like other here say it does
you cannot register with comprofiler
links to their site all over the place
it would lower your SEO rating
This is simply not true. Of course there might be conflicts with other components, but if configured correctly, it will work just fine.
If you read documentation carefully, you should have no problems.
As regards links, I have already replied many times - if you mind them, get a paid version.
Thanks a lot,
