The lack of any documentation does not help too much either. There is a link on the web page that is linked to a documentation but to a different product. Talking about their web site, there is only very little helpful information regarding the software at all.
Maybe it is just an incomplete installation file they provide, but as it is being provided right now, it is not usable.
- Easy to install and use
- No SEF url
- Thumbnails not fit the configured size
- No working search module (management make/models ajaxified work sometime yes sometime no)
- No thumb/cars showcase featured or random category module
- And the worst point absolutely no support
With paid version maybe the support are more decent..but I don't need this version because it contain more options useless for me...In my case the free version are quite enough..
Thank you for your review.
First of all I wanted to say:
- SEF is coming, but I am also busy. So please hold the line for that.
- The dropdown menus are working properly, tested this on 4 servers. And all without problems.
- Thumbnails problem is fixed in the latest version? What versiopn did you install?
- There is no modle yet for featured vehicles. As you could see in the JED I've ticked the component box only.
- Support? I've never had any mails from you?
-Does what it says! no extra bits you dont need.
-Already has hundreds of makes included so dont have to worry about that
-So easy to customize, the user community is pretty much able to fix problems and bugs themselves!
Image preiews are skew if the have different aspect ratio.
>>I would suggest reducing height and width proportionaly.
Menu linking to categories doesnt work out of the box
>>A patch has already been creted by a user but this should already be included into the original installation
Non English number system
>>I would suggest settings in the configuration page instead of users having to mess around the PHP files
English language files have lots of errors
>>Again the user community have already created better ones THEY NEED TO BE INCLUDED!
Uploading images is not as straight forward as it should be.
>>I suggest looking at the code behind the joomla banner component to see how it could be done better.
No modules, for a component that really needs them
>> Currently developing my own set for myself.
Conclusion: Very very nice! Solid and simple. needs presetation fixes here and there.
I must say regarding the looks, it's the best I have ever seen so far. The one thing which must be worked out is the translation in English, which is not very good, but it works.
Also I found myself with some writing permissions when it comes to upload the images, I must first insert the car into the database save and close, then enter again to upload the images (on linux servers, on windows worked directly), maybe the editors should have placed an apply button to speed things up a little.
Also what I miss is the lack of modules for the 1.5.4 version - latest models, top rated , etc, a search form.
Overall, it's by far the best auto component I found so far, the guys are doing a good job, but it still needs some work.
Anyway thumbs up
