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.
Alex will even assist you designing and customization of your website..This Guy is very much helpful...I am so happy with this extention
Lack of experience on my side was swiftly countered by swift responses to support requests and Alex couldn't have been more helpful (or understanding)
The main components I was interested in, FB login and comments, were operational way earlier than I anticipated and on experience so far I have no hesitation in recommending this extension with the full five stars.
When you bat at the level I do and you are buying an extension, top class support is essential....that's what I got.
"If you plan to look for extensions, look at their support first, if there is none, walk away."
So I have to say that JFBConnect has the best support I have seen to date. Alex has fantastic business skills and honestly wants to help you with any issue you may have.
Their documentation is easy to follow and kept updated - So if your going to take the dive as I did, this is the place to do it because you will be well looked after.
