But unfortunately some RSS feeds will take a long time to load and causing entire site to load much longer.
Solution would be to this module to use AJAX, as some of the other feed readers here. Then site loads in normal speed and not depends on the feeds reading time.
I would pay extra 8€ again for this feature.
The developer was ready to offer a new feature ("keyword filter") and followups in a few hours during a weekend.
You will never regret paying for this excellent piece of work, I couldn't be happier.
I have been installing and trying all sorts of feed extensions and I had quite serious issues with most, mainly concerning lack of versatility and options as well as performance impact (very important)
I really liked the demo of this extension and gave it a try and I am happy to report I have found the main solution to not only one but more of my needs.
First of all, its performance is amazing...I couldn't believe it could fill a whole page with article feeds without negatively impacting page load times. I believe other feed-extension developers can learn from Ultimate feed display.
Secondly, the default styling is great, it fit great in my site.
Thirdly, this is something that sets it apart, it is great in getting youtube feeds and displaying them like articles. The fact that on click the videos are loaded in a jquery popup (also loads amazingly fast) without the visitor leaving your site is a very nice touch.
It has actually saved me the trouble and money of getting a youtube channel extension, and pasting video id or link after video id/link. With this extension, I get the similar functionality but better, more article-like appearance.
Nothing bad to say.
What I would propose for future releases is
a) adding support for other video streaming sites (actually I haven't tested to see if this works yet)
b) Incorporating a pagination functionality, to be able to load many items, while still controlling the length of the webpage.
The developer said it can be done and will be implementing this feature in versions to come, so I am very optimistic.
I don't buy joomla extensions in general, there are so many great free ones that a person is made to doubt whether such investment is worth it.
I can happily say it was definitely worth buying this extension. Finding software that exceeds expectations is not an every day thing...
In addition to everything else, support is prompt and effective and the module is actively developed and improved. I have witnessed two new versions while being a few days customer and there was nothing wrong with the previous versions on my site.
Keep it up Mr Zgouletas!
Thanks for this great review. The truth is that I have worked hard. Pagination is supported also from 1.3.17+ ...so upgrade to have all latest fixes and features!
Could you please add a choice of a random 5 images when you have no images in the rss feed? That way, we don't have the same logo 10 times on display. That would be great if you could do that and that will make this module even more perfect. :-)
I looked hard for a feed reader, and I lost a lot of time testing modules! A module that you can configure it without always fiddling with the code! Not being a programmer, it is always a headache and a huge waste of time!
I saw the demo and after trying on my site, I was even more surprised!
Certainly worth the purchase! It is a big deal, and the high level of support, far outweighs the investment!
Before and after I buy the module, I sent many emails with questions that I myself started to feel bad for the excess of questions and doubts!
But not only were answered promptly and were settled and adjusted to my needs!
I'm developing a site for the dissemination of events and if not this module, would spend hours, weeks and months of work. This avoids filling the site with this info! Now it's automatic!
Congratulations and thank you for this module!
Once I had small problem with configuration the developer patiently helped me through to get it to work the way I wanted to.
Great module - great support - well worth a small price you have to pay to get it.
This module is perfect. It's plug and play at its finest.
Another feature that I don't think isn't credited enough is the fact that the feeds open up in a new browser within your webpage, so users don't actually leave your site. Brilliant.
5/5 and a must must by for the price.
This modul is not for free but this small amount for a great result i would pay again anytime.
This is the only way to present rssfeeds with pictures in a nice way. Unfortunately is the standard joomla 1.6 rss feedreader not able to handle feeds in a nice readable way...
Thank you developer!
thank you....soon a new amazing feature! Stay tuned!
This helps me and helps my readers (and vendors) find the listings that are related to my content. I expect a significant increase in business from this enhancement.
This inexpensive module does the trick and does it well. Not only that, I asked for small enhancement to the module and realized almost instant feedback and an update! Greatly appreciated.
thanks! I really appreciate your review. Always try to give my best to have satisfied customers like you and quality services.
Boy, am I glad I chose this exension! It was perfect for my needs, and incorporates into the beautifully. I promise you won't be disappointed in functionality or style. This will become a mandatory tool in my toolbox from here on out.
