I'm using other module for joomla 1.5, but when i tested this module for count user in website Joomla 2.5, i found that is very good ! because we can configure all information to show, without displaying for example the URL of the company that developed !
Thank you

This module not only did what i asked it to do, it did MORE, AND, without nagging at me telling me to change this or do that. It just plain and simply works. Very well done indeed.

After asking for a long time for CB to modify their 'whos logged in' module, so it shows names instead of accountnames, I stumbled upone this very neat module, and it takes less tan 5 mins to set up the basics for it. Excellent, and easily integrates to be able to show CB profiles, great work!

I am only using the counter part but i find it very easy to install and setup.

Working well with J1.7

Nice and easy to install, and I like the way the counter is displayed on the front end. However, I have no option for the features that I am reading on the reviews. After I installed the extension, the module doesn't have any Parameters to be configured. I'm using Joomla 1.6 and let me know if there is anything I need to do. I know something is not right coz there is no parater showing for this module.

Hi jexplorer, thanks for your Review.

First i must (jed rules) say: please use the Support Forum for Questions or Problems.

Short Answer is: the direct download from this site is only for Joomla 1.5. Please download the Joomla 1.6 File ( ) from the Project Website/Docu-Page.
In JED i can public only one File, but the Versions J1.5 and J1.6 are different.

Then, when you see all Parameters you can re-check your Review ;)

Greetings, Michael

Very good and complete module, you can enable / disable the options you want.

The only thing that I think should work is to design, is outdated ...
Owner's reply


thanks ;)

Some word's about 'The only design, is outdated'.

Since Version 1.9.12 you can use "Expressions". So you are completly free to Design the Counter with your own HTML and CSS - how you wish.

No english instructions and I couldn't get it to configure the way I wanted. Ok for a basic counter, but I'm sure it has a lot more features than I can understand.
Owner's reply


Have you not seen the BIG Translate Button on my Homepage ? If this translation is to bad, you can Mail me and we can create a translation together.

On other site is the Configuration allready in English Language !

And yes, the counter have a lot of feature. The great advantage of this Counter is, you can use this features or not - how you wish ! If you have a problem to configure the Counter how you want, please mail me how other peoples also.

Greetings Michael

PS.: where are documentations on other Counters ? I have a Documentation !
