Functionality

This extension let's you monitor and handle multiple Joomla sites for versions, extension versions and updates. And other nice features.

Ease of use

Just add the "child" plugin to your website, copy the keys and and them as website to the extension on the "parent" website.

Support

I didn't use them yet.

Documentation

The documentation on the website was hard to find, but the link in JED works fine. Documentation is good

Value for money

In comparison with online solutions this a good price:. A onetime payment for a infinit amount of websites. Auto scan would be nice.

I used this to: 9 websites so far. Also a few test-(dev)-websites. Those are easely forgotten when it comes to updates.

Pop Image Slider v.3 has more features and improvements! Rewritten code and better performance. Responsive design. Available as component and module. jQuery support. In cooperation with Phoca Gallery and K2 extensions. Multiple instances per page. Images can have different width. New lightbox version with many themes. Endless sliding. Image swap on mouse over. Title and description per image. Styled tooltips. Support for RTL direction. Better administration. More parameters. CSS3 features. Even better motion and effects. Pop Image Slider provides an impressive and interactive way to view images. The images slide left and right according to the cursor movement and when cursor is over an image, the image is magnified. The images are also links to urls specified by you. These links may open using the lightbox effect or in parent or blank window. Also the links may refer to web pages or file types such as image, video, sound, flash. Now there is no need to edit images in order to style them. Styles like border, shadow, rounded corners, gap between images can be achieved though the module parameters. The height and the width of the images, in normal and zoomed state, are automatically calculated based only on two parameters: a) the height in normal state and b) the percentage of the magnification. The users of the extension asked for more features (like Phoca Gallery support, image swap on mouse over, endless sliding etc.) and now these features are supported.

This extension executes the custom php code specified by the administrator, each time a page is loaded. The custom code is written in a single file which can be added everywhere among the website files. Then, the path to that file is filled in the plugin parameters. The great benefit is that you can still use the variables and functions of the Joomla framework like the code is written inside the official Joomla files.

Protect the links used for downloading files like zip, pdf, mp3, csv, jpg etc. The protected links work only to the users who click them through your website. The real link of the file to be downloaded is hidden by a random link that is unique per user and visit. The Download Link Protection plugin provides a very simple but practical way to hide the real URLs for files from being displayed and accessed directly. The real URLs are replaced with incomprehensible URLs that do not reveal anything about the file to be downloaded. So the user will never find the real URL of the downloaded file. The operation of the protected links is limited only to the users that can click to them through the website. The protected links don't work outside the website. If a person give the protected URL (through an email or forum or anything else) to another person, the link will not work. Furthermore the protected URL will work only as long as the session of the first person is alive. After the person has left the website, the protected links stop to work. He has to visit the website again and click to a new protected link that will download the same file again. The protected URLs are consisted of the URL to the homepage of the website and a random number as parameter. If the protected URL is accessed by a person outside the website, then he ends up to the homepage of the website. What this plugin can do: Hides the real URLs for files with protected URLs. Does not reveal the real URL of the downloaded file in any way. Limits the protected URLs to be working only for the person who is able to click to them through the website. Does not allow the protected URLs to work anywhere else outside the website. Creates different protected URLS for each user and in different visits of the same user. Displays a special message if the file does not exist. Change log: 1.0.3: - File names with empty spaces are supported. 1.0.2: - More security. The files to be downloaded are copied to the 'tmp' folder of Joomla with a unique name in order to be downloaded from there and then deleted automatically. 1.0.1: - Fix of deprecated method. 1.0.0: - First release of the Download Link Protection extension.:
