These are very good extension with clear instructions on how to set them up.
Initially I had some challenges to get Google+ to work, but after the superb support from Alex, I was still able to get it up and running.
In the end it even had to do with one of the other social plugins I was trying before, so absolutely not related to JFBConnect and/or Jlinked and still Alex was kind enough to help me out.
That is what I call Great Customer Service!!!
The support is fantastic! I had a conflict issue with another plugin and the support team walked me through everything, even when it became apparent that my conflict was not with their plugin but another part of joomla they still continued to help me and found the problem for me. Thats outstanding support! Could not be happier.
And not just Facebook but Google+ and Twitter integration as well. Simple one click registration and sign-in will retain your visitors whilst you enhance your sites social media presence.
Open Graph, social media buttons, 3rd party extension integration and much much more in one super slick component. Well worth the small investment asked for.
And the support - excellent! A very comprehensive forum style knowledge base and the one question I had to ask was answered within 6 hours - not bad as they are on the other side of the planet. One of the best extensions available.
Within a few minutes you can add the functionality to log in with Facebook, Google+, and Twitter. You can add modules to any page for users to leave comments using Facebook, and to like and +1 your articles, Virtuemart products, and more.
If you have problems setting anything up, they are always glad to help and consistently respond to support requests in the forums.
Of all the extensions you buy to build your site, you won't be dissappointed with the support you get from SourceCoast.
I am still a beginner with Joomla! and coding, so I always take a look at the support offered when I go with a commercial extension. In looking through the support forums, I saw a lot of quick responses and resolved issues, so I went for it.
Sure enough, once I had it installed, I ran into some JQuery issues confilcting with another extension. I contacted the support forum and received a quick & easy answer that completely resolved the issue.
The team at Sourcecoast goes the extra mile to ensure you are able to use the product and are dedicated to quickly solving anything that pops up.
If you want to integrate social media into your sites, then check this one out - it is definitely worth the money.
I use some other integrations, but I got problems. Here I got also problems from beginning, but they were solved by help of support. Answer for my questions was just in time and they help with even problems coming not from these component. Support is excellent.
In case of possibilities, I am still on beginning, but documentation is clear enough supported with step-by-step video, which made set-up easy. But my main task was done, rest is as cherry on cake :)
Overall, this extension is excellent.
Pros: Many! Fully loaded with everything you need to integrate social networking with your site.
Cons: The only thing I can say is there are so many options, it can be a bit overwhelming. But this only emphasizes how well conceived and complete this extension is.
Level of Difficulty: I would classify this as moderate. You should have some experience implementing Joomla! extensions. You also may need some experience working with style sheets, but only necessary to customize certain features.
This extension comes with several modules, many which the average user may not know the purposes. The initial setup includes a "wizard" style "Tune-up" that not only helps properly set up this extension, but ensures all necessary modules are active and error free.
Support for this extension includes documentation, well-explained and commented features, and a support forum. My experience with the forum is it is prompt, responsive, and extremely helpful and knowledgeable. It was not necessary for the installation, but I found it invaluable for solving some of my own issues specific to my site. I would say their support is excellent.
JFBConnect is perfect for implementing and integrating social networking with your authentication and site promotion. It is a must have for increasing site traffic.
