Core of our site

Posted on 28 September 2017
What we built in our Joomla site would never have been possible without Zoo. The ability to assign content to multiple categories mainly.
Ease of use
Took a while to figure out all of the details, but it came together pretty well!
I've utilized support a number of times and have always been able to get issues resolved
Lots of online documentation is available, which is needed and helpful.
I used this to: Zoo is what makes the majority of our website possible. We use it mainly as a directory, but a very detailed one with lots of moving parts.
Essentially its basic functions work good.
Ease of use
If you want it specific (for examle a custom extension layout), you need time, if you´re not a developer.
It is really frustrating, when things not working (f.e. Widgetkit animations), and nobody helps you, even though you pay for the pro version
Ok. If you need it specific for developing things, it is too superficial

Great CCK

Create as many content type and layout as you need. Great display with Widgetkit and even more with Zoolanders ZooPro content
Ease of use
It's easy to setup. It's better if you have html & php knowledge to modify and create new render template but you can use it without
They answered my question each time I needed, what I else can I expect ?
Good enough
Incredible. I almost wish Joomla! would fold it into the core. There are tiny flaws if you look close, but Zoo adds a world of possabilities
Ease of use
I found usage to be very intuitive. If you get REALLY in depth you need to take the training wheels off, but pretty easy to get rolling.
The support could be a little more responsive, but for a free extension I'd say it's pretty solid.
Solid documentation. If you run into a snag, there is a searchable forum that can usually solve your issue.
I used this to: My website, along with a few clients. If you need to build a relatively large site, Zoo is really one of the best options around.

Afwul Support

Ease of use
Steep learning curve as poorly documented and supported.
I used this to: I dont use it anymore, not worth the effort.
Çok Fazla Özelliği var
Ease of use
Çok basit ama öğrenmek gerek biraz
I used this to: Joomlan?n kendi içerik yöneticisi yerine hep bunu kullan?r?m en büyük avantaj? özellik ve elementler eklenebilmesi. Tasar?m?n?n de?i?tirilmesi çok kolay her ?ey senin elinde
Ease of use
I find it really easy.
It's good when you pay.
It's decent
I used this to: Every website I make using joomla.
Can build anything assuming you are willing to make few compromises. Or you can always buy pro elements.
Ease of use
Once you understand the logic, or rather absence of it, it's not so bad.
Supp-what? You are on your own. Lack of documentation and support would be the reson for me to give up on it if I'd have to start again.
Outdated and mostly written in confusing manner lacking crucial details.
I used this to: Real estate agency web site.
This is a very flexible tool that has allowed me to do a lot of things that I would have otherwise had to have done painstakingly by hand.
Ease of use
Not particularly user friendly. The functionality is a little obtuse and unintuitive.
Non-existent! For the most expensive set of extensions on the market, timely and helpful support is not an option.
Out of date, and typically leaves out small but crucial pieces of information. They'll tell you what PHP code to insert, but not where.
You have to know a bit php if you want to do custom stuff. It's better if you use some other elements. Integration with widgetkit is good!
Ease of use
Well, once you know how it works it ok but it's not very intuitive
Support not bad and fast for what I needed
Good documentation but no help or tips in the soft itself as usual with Yootheme...
I used this to: Many sites!
