At foobla, we have update-stream system for every Joomla! Extensions, it works with the Updater from Joomla! core.
It worked very well. Though a little tweaking was necessary for the unusual feed, the support through that process was exemplary.
Quick, polite responses are all anyone really wants out of a support team. I got that and then some.
I now have a system that turns an email into an article, then shares the article on a Facebook Page and Twitter account all automated with a cron job.
What a great system!
I'm looking forward to exploring some of the many other features of obGrabber.
Working with data-centric, xml content is always a challenge. This extension provides an excellent solution for importing rss and other types of feeds into your site.
Does all that is says,the support received from Tung,was very good,and this guy,solved me all the issues that i haved on setup this component.
You will surely need his support,because this component is very technical and not so easy to setup by yourself.
This component haves lots of functionality and stuff,and truly needs and pdf book with clearly explaination of all the functions,and what does each function,as the component is very good,but also very very technicaly even for an webmaster with large experience in using latest tehnologies.
