Works like a charm and does everything it promises. Easy to customize to fit any needs, flexible and has many useful features.
Ease of use
Be prepared for some tweaking in the beginning. You have to dig through tons of settings and, depending on your need, add modules or plugins
Very good support. If you contact them working hours they respond immediately. If not, you get help within a few hours. Solved all issues!
Thorough, informative, relevant, and well-organized. Documentation is further supported by extensive forums and help desk resources.
Value for money
Worth EVERY dollar - best investment in my websites. Very inexpensive, and I thank the developers for pricing such a terrific product so us
I used this to: Enabling visitors to comment on my blog and some other articles.
Si funcionara, de acuerdo a la documentación su funcionalidad es buena, pero no logré que funcionara ni con asistencia técnica.
Ease of use
No es fácil de usar ni su configuración es intuitiva. Uno acaba por entenderlo, pero cuesta varias horas de pruebas.
Respuesta lenta. Tardan más de una semana en responder. Tuve que dar credenciales de administrador al asistente y no logró que funcionara.
Escasa y confusa. Hay que explorar y descubrir. Al final uno termina aprendiendo por prueba y error.
Value for money
Pésimo. Pagué us$ 32, componente no funcionó y no los reembolsaron. Tardan 10 días en responder y la póliza de reembolso es de 15 días.
I used this to: No pude usarlo. Lo quería para un sistema de evaluación del jurado en Premios Literarios. Tuve que comprar JLex Review, con el que no tuve ningún problema.
Works like a charm and does everything it promises. Easy to customize to fit any needs, flexible and has many useful features.
Ease of use
Very easy to use, Both backend and front end is very simple. Supports all joomla available extensions.
Contacted number of times and every time got good response,the best support I've ever experienced. I didn't have to wait long.
I would give this a 9/10. It could be better however now it covers all the basic and most questions you might have.
Value for money
Time is money, so this money is a good investment to have a fast solution to connect reviews with your joomla website.
I used this to: I use this extensive to get reviews on Clothing and Accessories E-commerce website of Client.
This is review plugin that promises all you require from such a functionality. So thumbs up.
Ease of use
The trouble start here, the plugin is buggy and requires tweaking by the support team. They intervene without telling you what they did.
So as time passes, and projects take time the support expires. When you need further help they refuse and invite you to purchase again !
Not covering the unforeseen - so it not sufficient. You will need their support.
Value for money
At that stage, money thrown out of the window. We have not yet been able to make use of this plugin.
I used this to: A rated wine website - but hey, the plugin never worked and we don't want to throw more money at it.
Плагин работает очень быстро, показывает публикации любого профиля Twitter, а также по хэштегу.
Ease of use
Есть встроенный визуальный редактор, упрощает работу в разы и дает возможность разобраться даже новичку.
Работает хорошо, вовремя реагирует. Отвечает детально на все вопросы, что радует. Индивидуальный подход.
Есть инструкция, очень удобная и понятная. Любой вопрос можно найти, в том числе о самом плагине.
Value for money
Плагин платный, но это стоит затраченных денег. Здесь платишь за содержание, которое оправдывает.
I used this to: ????????? ??? ????? ??????. ? ????????? ? ??? ????? ???????? ? Twitter. ????????? ??? ???????? ???-??????, ????????, ???-?????????? ? ???-???????, ???????? ?????????.
Works great. Lots of features and charts for the website operator
Ease of use
Fairly easy to use. Once it's set up it largely takes care of itself.
Support is excellent. Will help you set it up if you need that little bit extra.
I would give this a 8/10.... It could be better but covers all the bases and most questions you might have.
Value for money
Very good value - not much can compare with it so the price is quite good.
I used this to: A video game website for Sony PSP & PSVita. Used to use this for a restaurant review site and it worked well with that too.,
Easy to setup and understand
Ease of use
Good, I needed to use it for a 3rd party component and it worked flawlessly
Didn't need any, but their forums are concise and well layed out
Very well written, easy to understand how and why to setup a Profile
Value for money
Excellent value for what it does and the time I saved.
I used this to: Third party component integration with a Property Rental website to review individual properties.
Its use and configuration are limited to the basics. It is advertised as Sophisticated, Flexible, and Powerfull. I can't say that is true...
Ease of use
It should be but it is not, even though the given options are limited.
Although I received a reply soon, it was not helpful
Average to limited
Value for money
It is not expensive but its description "World’s First Complete Rating and Review System for all Joomla Components" is just an exaggeration
I used this to: Article reviews
It does what it's supposed to do.
Ease of use
Easy once you get used to it.
Well written.
Value for money
Good value for money.
Great Rate/Review extensions that Worked well for what we needed. Loved that it support Rich Snippets needed for Search Engine results.
Ease of use
Very user-friendly. Our site users used and understood it right away without us even telling them we switched from the old Review extension.
The support is second to none. Even with a 9 hour timezone difference. Developers answered my questions and issues within hours to a day.
Documentation is well written. Anything I didn't understand was explained easily by support.
Value for money
Well worth the value for the price we paid.
I used this to: Locations Listings and Review website
