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,
we might have not replied, if you have not even read the basic FAQs, which list most of the possible causes of 404 error: http://www.artio.net/faqs/artio-joomsef/troubleshooting/404-page-not-found-error-after-clicking-any-link
We do our best to answer as much questions of our users as we can. But we cannot repeat the same answers all the time - we would not be doing anything else - that is why FAQ exist. So, just take time to read it!
Hi, if you do not link that, so why do not you get licensed version that does not include those? (btw. I do not know why you call it a spam link, it is a regular back link same as in many other Joomla component)
Even on these pages you can see in footer, that this directory is powered by "Mosets Tree".
If want to you use the result of our work for free, I think there is no reason to mind pointing a link to us.
You would be much better off just using the Joomla backend SEF option. Plus it does not work with JomSocial. They want an additional € 8.50 dollars for the plugin. I am requesting my money back. When you develop you should learn to support. Most of these developers these days are children without any business sense - al thye care about is money. REFUND!!!
Not sure what you are talking about???
There are 2 editions
1. free that contains backreference to ARTIO as authors; this fact is clearly stated EVERYWHERE on our site -- also it is mention here
2. paid (sponsored) that does not contain these links or any other information such as metada or similar
If you have purchased paid version and installed it, there is no way where you could have any meta or links added in your page.
Second, the are NOT INVISIBLE.
So what you say is simply a LIE.
As regards your opinion about comparing software and jeans, I guess you have a long way to go as regards learning about author rights and software licenses. So, no comment on that.
Btw. if you have problems, you can can always talk to us directly, instead of throwing dirt here.
Invisible links may affect your Search Engine rankings and it is better to use some other component for this.
Also, meta ad insertion is disappointing and it's like having a MS Word file that has "Created With MS Word" after every page!
Very poor and sneaky tactic by developer!
The provided informaiton is simply NOT TRUE.
1. there are no HIDDEN links
2. there are links only in FREE edition
3. all this information is clearly stated both in ARTIO webpages + the Joomla Extensions Directory
JoomSEF doesn't work properly with Community Builder and Kunena (to name a few popular components). The CB login & CB register modules do not work unless you skip CB in JoomSEF.
I also had to skip Kunena since my site's members couldn't post any messages.
I emailed the company 6 times during the last 2 weeks asking for their help. At the beginning they asked me to describe my problems. I did that. After that they remained silent despite the numerous emails I sent them.
I regret you have this experience, but we are e.g. using Kuneno on our own site - with the same plugin - and our users do not have any problems in sending posts.
So just make sure you are using the latest versions of everything.
As regards support, we do as much as we can, but our capacities are limited (usualy because of users that do not read FAQs and ask the same things over and over).
The product works great. However, before you run off and install it make sure your Joomla native SEF is working as it should. Also, learn how the component works to avoid the fustration that self inflicted mistakes cause. If you have an issue with it believe me its probably you.
I would give this component 9.5 out of 10. Actually make it 10 out of 10.
"Make sure the JoomSEF metabot is active and ordered first among system metabots. If you need any additional help, we might do a check directly at your site, if you purchase paid support."
The JoomSEF metabot cause my site to lock me out. So I posted a reply about this issue after I had to disable the metabot through phpmyadmin. Then like a fool I bought the paid version of JoomSEF hoping to get more support by them taking a look at my site configuration.
After over two weeks of waiting, and even offering to pay them again if they'd take a look, the only reply I have gotten was to ask if I was running in legacy mode. I replied within an hour of that question, and have heard nothing since.
I'm fairly frustrated by the vendors which charge you for a component. Even more frustrating was being told to purchase it in order to get support (That part I understand) only to get basically no support after money had changed hands.
I have since asked for a refund. We'll see if I get it.
Right now I'm very disappointed. Having seen how slow the responses were in the forum for others, I should have known better than to pay for the 'unbranded' version.
$35.00 USD out the door, and lesson learned.
well, let me be a bit more clear on the facts.
1. extension for DocMan is free, not paid
2. there is no official DocMan released for Joomla 1.5, the version 1.4.0 works only in legacy mode and is having some issues
3. we have released our own DocMan2 native compatile with Joomla 1.5 that works fine
4. however, on out own site, we run DocMan 1.4.0 + the extension and it works fine
