Above And Beyond

I am not one to leave reviews but in this case Developer C. S. Wilson gives me no choice!

I bought this "Swiss army knife" article module for article display versatility. I managed to come up with a purpose it wasn't designed for "display/feature just one specific article" I found this out from a speedy reply of my support ticket I made shortly after buying it 5/30/2013.

The developer responded "The module can select random articles, but it was not developed to select a specific article out of the box. However, I will look in to getting this feature added this weekend for you." - I say, how cool is that?

True to his word Sunday of the weekend he notified me of the updated Version

1.4.0 (update on Jun 2, 2013) was available to download!

Plus, the limited time I have had to play with this extension, it lives up to its billing... obviously I know that any future support if needed will be above and beyond...it does not get any better than this! - BOSS

Owner's reply: WOW, thank you so much for you kind review Boss, and thank you for buying from me.

Had almost all of the functionality I needed out of the box. Contacted them for something additional that I did need though and they added it into the next release, which was put out later that same day! So happy with this company!

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for the purchase, and the review, please let me know if you have any issues or need any other features included.

Fantastic Extension!

Tell A Friend Pro is hands done one of the easiest ways for your users to share your website with their friends and family, they simply enter in their name and email address, and the name and email addresse(s) of their friends and hit send, it's that simple. As the site owner you will have access from the backend of Joomla to configure the message that their friends receive, the system also includes tokens so you can auto fill in the friend's name and or email, the date the user that is submitting the form's information. We recoded the form’s HTML, CSS, PHP and JavaScript from the ground up. We added a new blind carbon copy feature that will allow the site owner to get an email message with the names and email addresses submitted each time a user uses the tell a friend form. This is a feature that many of you have been asking for so we got it added to this release. LAST UPDATE: v1.1.2: on 12/13/2013 the latest version (1.1.2) of our Tell A Friend Pro component for Joomla 2.5.x and 3.2.x was released. We fixed a bug with jQuery library not getting loaded correctly in Joomla 2.5.x.

Pinterest Pro makes it really simple to add a pin it button to your images within your Joomla articles, the button will show in the upper right corner of your images when you hover over them. This is a great feature for blog style layouts. To add the button to any image is easy just add a CSS class to the image, the default class is “pinable”, this class can easily be changed to whatever meets your needs via the plugin’s parameters. The Pinterest pin description is pulled from the image's alt tag, if no alt tag is set then the plugin will use the page's meta description is that is not set it will use the page's title. This has been a plugin that we have been wanting to develop for some time, seeing the need to develop an easy way for our customers to add the ability for their customer to pin their photos to their pinterest boards. After a client contact us about developing it we decided to pull the trigger and develop the plugin. *** UPDATE *** NEW: We added the ability to add jQuery selectors instead of only one CSS class, now you can use element IDs or Classes or both or even classes with child elements. NEW: We added the ability to add multiple jQuery selectors.
