I first tried ChronoEngines two other extensions, ChronoForms and ChronoComments, which are outstanding!
So, after the experience I had with those components, I decided to tryout ChronoConnectivity to create a page that pulled very specific data from with the DB table.. this thing is awesome! Very simple, but very powerful.
Oh, did I mention this was the first time I have ever used a DB query?? Or written ANY WHERE statements, etc?? The forum on Chronoengine.com has very useable info and when I posted a question it was always answered at light speed!
I was able to create, essentially what would've been a custom component, in about 30 mins.. at that's because I'm a newb at MySQL (Graphic Designer by prof. :D )
And most of all, if you're tired of downloading free extensions with support that matches the 'you get what you pay for' cliche', check these guys out!
Most importantly, lets all support developers like this. These guys are helpful to the highest degree, have developed truly great extensions and only ASK for us to buy a license to remove the credits in the footer. No encryption, to hassles,.. these guys are role models for the rest of us!
Great job and thank you again Max (and Bob) for all you help and support!
