Great extension


Posted on 07 November 2018
Functionality

Very variable tool I use for real estate database, membership lists, tourism sites, literature databases and many more.

Ease of use

It´s complex. For integrate in own templates some knowledge is needed. But than there are no limits.

Support

I needed the support a few times ans always got help very quickly and friendly.

Documentation

The documantation is clear structures and helpful.

I used this to: I use it for real estate database, membership lists, tourism sites, literature databases and more.

Functionality

SobiPro comes with tons of functions. All offered functions are working fine.

Ease of use

Experienced users find a lot of possibilities. The free version (no support) might overstrain some users building more complex cataloguies

Support

Each of the memberships between abt. 48 - 229 € are more than worth their prices! The Support is professional, fast and simply awesome!

Documentation

Documentation is only available within the paid membership. It offers (nearly) all informations you might need.

I used this to: Lots of purposes like appartment-rental, camper-rental, teambuilding-agencies, tour-operators, hotels und more

Functionality

Loads of features to play with and a very reliable component.

Ease of use

Can sometimes get a bit technical but with the top-notch support you don't have anything to worry about. Be prepared to put in the work.

Support

The support that I have received from SobiPro has been excellent!

Documentation

Good clear documentation.

I used this to: A tradesman website.

Free Version Doesn't Work


Posted on 11 January 2018
Functionality

It would work well, IF you were actually able to save any of the information that you inserted. Is not functional at all.

Ease of use

Very easy to use - but you need knowledge of css if you want it to look like it's part of your site and not sticking out like a sore thumb.

Support

NONE - They do not offer any support for the free version - not even to sort out something that should work (like saving).

Documentation

No Documentation - Again Documentation is only available for paid version.

I used this to: I tried to use this but because I am unable to SAVE any work.. I gave up... Not going to pay money for a program that cannot even get the free version right. Don't waste your time.
Owner's reply: There is no such thing as a free or paid version. There is only ONE SobiPro version available, and it is FREE OF CHARGE.

Yes support has to be paid, as we need to make a living. Our bakery does not give their bread away for free as we do with SobiPro! Nevertheless, we provide a community forum for SobiPro FREE OF CHARGE.

And the basic documentation for SobiPro is FREE OF CHARGE!

And of course SobiPro works, as several 1000 installations all over the world prove.
I suppose you have some server problems or you configured something wrong in SobiPro’s ACL. For such problems we offer our support, you should have taken the chance to feel the power of SobiPro.
You do not know CSS very well? Our support is the best what is available if it comes to SobiPro design.

But we are very happy that SobiPro is EASY TO USE!

Functionality

Works like a charm! There is also a big selection of applications for different needs.

Ease of use

Very easy to use. It works out of the box, and you can choose to get example data, which makes it very easy to setup and simple to learn.

Support

The support is outstanding. You get your answer within hours.

Documentation

There is a lot of detailed documentation, with many images and very easy to understand.

I used this to: My clients' sites, from sites with for example restaurant listings to business sites.

Functionality

there is a lot

Ease of use

there is a small learning curve but when it's done you can almost anything

Support

very good and fast reply !

Our Dream Come True


Posted on 05 October 2017
Functionality

A fantastic program to use on desktop and phone. Our users have not yet complained.

Ease of use

For me it was a learning curve in the beginning but not being a programmer and not much of a web designer I muddled my way through

Support

This is where Sobipro shines. Speedy response and helpful suggestions both with sobipro and joomla issues

Documentation

Documentation second to none. very clear step by step and easy to find.

I used this to: I have 5 sections moving into #6 on a tourism site about Atlantic Canada that displays all accommodations, restaurants and things to do as well as travel help like service stations and repair facilities.

Functionality

It does what they advertise and more. XSL makes it very flexible. It makes life easy for person uploading information from the front or back

Ease of use

Once you get the hang of things, it is simple and straight forward. Did not know much about XSL, but I love what I have learned.

Support

My tickets was answered within hours and always with the solution to my problem - usually missing something in the docs ;-). Excellent!!

Documentation

There is a lot to cover in the documentation and everything is covered, be prepared to get a bit lost in a lot of open tabs in your browser.

I used this to: I use SobiPro for two tourism directory sites with a third in the pipeline. The first site has been running for over two years without any hiccups.

Functionality

A permanent "update" message at the backend is really annoying. It should use the joomla system or at least be more discret. Do not recommen

Ease of use

it is easy to use.

Support

Paid again 40 euro for support but it was not helpful. Have the same problem. Waste of money.

Owner's reply: Hello Carlos,
of course SobiPro is using the Joomla update system! There is a small bug in not deleting the update message for applications which will be fixed in the next version. It is only a message and does not harm the functionality of SobiPro. Sorry if it is anoying for you.
Concerning your problem with the support: our support tried everything to help you, but your server is very restricted (what you confirmed). We even installed a backup of your site on our server which prooves that the problem is on your server’s end. When we tried to help you with that by requesting the server error logs, you did not longer respond to our support.
In all you got 3 hours of support - for only 40 Euros!
It’s a pity that you reviewed SobiPro that bad only because of a message and your restricted server. But we are happy that you had no other problems with SobiPro and it is easy to use!

Functionality

Looks like it is highly functional, but the output is primitive.

Ease of use

It is difficult to get a nice looking page.

No very supportive, almost hostile.
