There are much much more features in Cobalt than what we can describe within this short description. Try for yourself this incredible component and become addicted by the unrivaled power of flexibility, which no other JOOMLA CCK can provide.

Now there is less and less cck for joomla and cobalt cck is the older and the only one cck for joomla to be updated very often
Ease of use
ues very intuitive
great forum to have support and sergey is very professional
you have full doc and videos
I used this to: a real estate agency and it is perfect for that especillay for several fields like video field, audio field and relation
Tons of functionality right out of the box. Impressive amount of fields and modules to get the job done.
Ease of use
Has some learning curve. Encourages you to extend your knowledge of PHP and MySQL so you can create anything you want. It's pretty amazing.
I had outstanding support from Sergey and the forum. Special thanks to Sergey. Without his help and guidance, my project wasn't possible.
Plenty of stuff to read and video's to view to get you started. The forum provides a great source of tips, tricks, and example code.
I used this to: Anything, actually. I just wish I had come across it earlier. I can't express enough gratitude to Sergey who helped me solve some serious issues and who was willing to extend his software to accommodate my needs. Cobalt deserves more users so Sergey can keep up the good work!

Best CCK for Joomla

Posted on 07 November 2016
Greate I have Cobalt and don't need to install hude amount of extensions to have many fucntions on my site because Cobalt can do everything
Ease of use
First you need some time to get how Cobalt works but then you can guess that you can do everything with it.
Support is via forum where you get answers from developer or other members. I get answers mostly within 24 hours and am sattisfied with them
It's on Eng and Rus, some of items which are on Rus are not on Eng, but for luckily I know both, would be good to have more simplified docs.
I used this to: I used it on a Movie database site where each item has about 20 fields an almost all fields are used in filter and hardly used relations field to connect movies actors and directors to each other.
Also used to create Business directory with map view and some more different stuf
Many content types all highly configurable, with relations, full audit trail, tags, comparisons. Too much to list here - Pls check the site
Ease of use
Cobalt its plugins and modules install as 1 pkg. Integrates well with other J exts. All configs via good back end screens. no xml files!
First class: Developer is dedicated, responsive and available on the Forums - which are great community of knowledgeable users quick to help
Mintjoomla have made it as easy as poss to get up to speed with good videos and docs. If stuck just ask on the forums - even for free users!
I used this to: 'Directories' - classifieds, jobs, motors, real estate listings with maps. Blogs (there's a great template inc), Photo Galleries etc. If any -ve its the options are a bit bewildering at first, but anything so configurable is going to be a bit complex - rtfm first, then ask = easy
Functionality allows to implement plans
Ease of use
All intuitive
Support for fast and high-quality
I used this to: I use this extension for a long time, I was able to realize conceived project that has become quite popular. I express my deep gratitude to the developer. Faced with technical problems, the developers have helped me solve them successfully. For that special thank you to them!
I've dealt with numerous J! extension support teams and none have really stood out for me for their exceptional service... until I interacted with the guys at Mintjoomla!

I have to say there's nothing more powerful than good customer service when it comes to winning over a potential customer and I am more than pumped to get on the Cobalt bandwagon!

Mintjoomla's responses to my questions (in particular, @pepperstreet) were incredibly fast and more than helpful. He went out of his way to help me find a solution to my problem, even researching alternatives and listing resources that could further assist me. They are the complete package! I highly recommend using their products as you can't really go wrong when you have incredible customer support coupled with incredible products!
Excellent component. Easily the most flexible available for Joomla, miles ahead of any other.

Of course, no component is good without good support and Cobalt is exception here - the team at Mint Joomla are fantastic, with swift responses to questions, feature requests, etc

There is a learning curve with Cobalt because it is so big, there are so many uses for it - which is perfect because you can use one component for nearly every type of Joomla site.

Highly recommend this component and the developer!!!

I have been using Cobalt for about a year and it has been absolutely fantastic. I am constantly amazed at the amount of functionality that they have built in to Cobalt. Sometimes it's hard to find documentation for certain things but the developers are great (Sergey in particular) at getting back to you quickly using their forum and offer a lot of helpful guidance. I started using Cobalt for one project and I've had several projects come up since where Cobalt has proven to be a perfect solution. It will take you a while to figure it all out but when you do, you'll be amazed at how many things you'll find Cobalt is great for. It's definitely an investment in your time you won't be sorry you made. Make sure you take advantage of the forum on their website to ask questions and share with the rest of the Cobalt community.
As my title says it all, even if you are not a developer but you want to design your own website, you can definitely do it!

Cobalt is a bit difficult to understand at the very early stage but after few trials and errors, you'll definitely built one of the best possible website with it.

Cobalt has lots of powerful features that offer you unlimited possibilities, just take Joomla + Cobalt makes possible to develop anything you desire.

I am not a developer but due to the financial status of our small company, I started to learn about Joomla so that I may try to develop our company website by myself without the need to hire a developer.

After few months, having tried mostly all other CCK extensions such as ZOO, Content Builder, FlexiContent among others, I decided to give Cobalt a try!

At the first look, I was really scared and even decided to left it aside and tried to find some other solutions, but I did not find any other.

So, I get back to Cobalt and decided to make some efforts to understand how it works and based on tutorials (video & tutorials), I was able to understand its main features and functionality and created our first website.

Today, I have developed 3 websites using Cobalt and all are just perfect, a golf community and advertising portal, a real estate website and a tour operator website, the 4th website is currently under development, all 4 websites for my own company and I did not pay a penny to any freelancer.

Sergey, the head of Cobalt development team is so wonderful, support is just perfect with basically instant (maybe a bit more) but definitely in less than 8 hours, all your support requests are answered.

Updates are done weekly, but in case of urgent bugs and issues, updates are available the same day, I have paid US$ 99 for the pro version of Cobalt and I am very happy about it, if I could, I would even pay much more as they really deserve it, with Cobalt I have saved thousands of dollars and why not encourage the development of this component by providing some financial support to its development team?

As soon as my websites are fully operational and I start to generate some income, I will definitely renew my subscription and even help the Cobalt community as much as possible during my free times.

Simply AWESOME !!!

I dont even know how to start, this component made me say "Unbelievable !". Why ? Because everything I wanted to have I could do with this, I dont think I had an idea which I couldn`t make it come true.

I`ve tried many other CCKs but this one is one of the best in the market I think

At the beginning you may be a bit scared but, here what, take some time and go over it and I`m sure you will understand how it works.

Go get it guys! this will make your job easy and you`ll get what you want with it!

Oh not to mention about the support, really fast and always there. You have a suggestion, no problem they are always opened to suggestions!
