Had I small problem with another extension in conjunction with this one that did not work correctly and Pavel had a look and fixed the other extension problem for me.
That is what I call fantastic support.
Would recommend this extension to anyone that wants to use Multiple Categories.
Installation and operation is hassle free and intuitive. Improvements are added on a regular basis and the developer is open for suggestions.
I had some issues with one of the updates and found that the support from the developer was both quick and helpful.
Thanks for a very, very useful component. Top marks from me.
One thing - after updating Joomla to 2.5.17 the component was inactive. A quick reinstall solved the problem. Don't know if this is a problem of the component
Support was quick and solved any issues right away. I had two problems with the extension (one with sub-category article display in parent categories, another with user group permissions in the front end editor), both of which Pavel solved very quickly and required nothing of me but to install the patched component.
The only thing you have to remember is that there is only one article and therefore there is only one Article Ordering number so if you rely on this to sequence your articles in the categories you will have to think carefully about what to number the article in its base category.
This didn't prove a great problem for me and I think the extension is a real must have!
Great support as well when needed.
