Parts I can get to work, work. But seeing as i purchased this for a very specific task and can't get it to work I'll score accordingly

Ease of use

not very intuitive, and lack of documentation or sample code really make doing anything a hassle


have been trying to get answer to basic questions for over a week. Yes i paid for the plugin, and no, I haven't received any answers,


3 short FAQs covering the absolute basics. No step by step, no how-to's.

I used this to: creating a page that displays select information from user profiles, and custom fields created by membership pro


Display information from database without writing select statement, that is a huge help.

Ease of use

It is not that easy but it is not hard to learn


Support is great. GreyHead always answers my questions. Thank you GreyHead.


I always find answer from Forums.

I used this to: Display list of information from database and connected to Chronoforms to be able to edit incorrect information.

When combined with ChronoForms, ChronoConnectivity is a must have for any serious Joomla developer. Even for the "beginner", these two provide a lot of functionality with a minimum of knowledge required of PHP or JavaScript.

For the more advanced developer, they provide the ability to really stretch the imagination. The docs could be better, but the support offered in the forums can't be beat. There have been a lot of good tutorials added lately, and I understand more are on the way.

Great job and kudos to the developers!!

Max and Greyhead are simply the best when it comes to support.

I have been using chronoforms for about a year and I would say that it is so powerful. So far I have done everything that came across my mind.

Yes this does not mean it is for everyone but even for beginners this add-on can help a lot.

The most important thing is that on chronoform website the support is great.

Chronoforms is one of the best add-on joomla ever.

Thanks Max.

Together with Chronoforms, this component is essential for any truly functional site. I have only just started using it and already the possibilities seem endless. The only limitation is my lack of programming knowledge.

Once again and excellent product with equally excellent support.

I have been using ChronoForms for a few years and one day I was asked to display back event registrations to authorised logged in users only. Enter ChronoConnectivity!

Since then I have built a couple of websites that are full blown applications (an affiliate book store and a real estate website) using ChronoForms to enter book and property details and ChronoConnectivity to display back the details in different required formats with appropriate security so that only the website owners can update the sites.

I am not a programmer but where a few lines of PHP code have been needed, I have been able to find examples on the very active ChronoEngine forums. I am so impressed that I purchased the unlimited subscription for ChronoForms last year and then the unlimited subscription for ChronoConnectivity today! I want to make sure these guys stay in business and continue to develop, improve and support these great products!

Great Tool

Posted on 28 October 2009

This has been invaluable to me and developments I have progressed. As a simple way of getting data out and into a database and displaying it back it is awesome.

Personally this for me is a must have.

I was already using Chrono Forms but this new component from Chrono is just as good.

You can quickly setup screens frontend/backend that allow to you view/add/edit/delete data from any tables.

I used it to setup an area where my users can add information about projects they've worked on.

You need an hour or two to get up to speed with the way it works and as always the forum support is brilliant so thanks again to both Max and Bob for the speedy replies that helped me when I needed it most.


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!

Great for legacy data

Posted on 18 September 2008

This component makes it easy to display data and edit it in the backend once you've imported it from another database. Great for moving data from a proprietary MySQL database to work in Joomla.

The admin area will be getting some more powerful data manipulation controls soon, and I'm very excited about those.

Get more control over your Joomla website using ChronoDirector. Here is how it works: you define specific rules to be matched when your website is loaded, then you define specific actions to be taken for each matching rule, for example, you can display specific content when the home page is loaded, or redirect to a different page if some URL parameter is not available, there is a big list of actions available and more to be added soon. Current rules: Site area: front/admin Routes group: Match specific url/page/component Request parameter: Check the existence and value of a specific url parameter. Actions: Database CRUD. Redirect Email Display message Alter content Update request PHP code
