Under Joomla 5 it only works with the default template, even if I associate it with another one.
Is this a bug?
Ease of use
It is easy to use, and users quickly find themselves. The administration interface is also good. My only problem is that templates cannot be
I used this to: joomla5 with RocketTheme Fluent template.
I want that if I set up this plugin for the templates, it will actually work with that template, not with the default one for the main page.
I needed something to make my homepage fun after running into kinks with a "wall" installation. I came across this and could not be happier. Thank you so much for an easy to use but FUN tool for Joomla. My members love it!


Component usable on Homepage

Interactive - public or private access

Posts, Videos and Images

Lets you know if your link or video is invalid.

Easy management - can delete items quickly from the frontend.

Transparent mode, blends into site - no css required.



Free version has a link to developer

(wasn't an issue for me - its a good product)

I'd like to change the size or type/color of the post it note. This is currently not in the setup. Again, not a deal breaker.

Ran into an issue with this component not working on Joomla 2.5, the developer fixed in in under 12 hours. Awesome lightning quick support & awesome product. Well worth the subscription for Pro version. Thanks!

Very good

Easy installation

Good functionality

Lacks documentation
What a fantastic component!

Installed and ran perfectly.

One of those ideas that is so simple it's a wonder no one did it before this one!

Awesome way to introduce some interactivity to a website.

Well done to the makers!
Finally found a way to add some direct/immediate user interaction to our website.

Documentation is limited and I think I have some problems due to hosting with MySQL 4.0.x. But after some manually table creation and data insertion I could start using the component.

Looks (wooden board) a bid old fashion style. Doesn't fit the modern/design look of many templates.

Good: because it is fun, nice functionality (postit, pictures, youtube), it works, has may configuration parameters.

Not excellent: lacking documentation, doesn't work 100% in my situation.
I just installed this on my Joomla 1.5 site.

I tried to make a menu item for it, but it doesn't appear as an option when making a "new" menu item... couldn't find it in the list. Perhaps I don't know what I'm doing.

I created a menu item article and added this module to that menu item but it didn't work for me... it gave an error message about not being able to access a database...odd since I didn't see any options to indicate a database in its module settings.

It could be entirely possible that my noobishness is messing things up and this module is fine.

Also, it appears that this model is entirely in German, not English, although this won't impact it too much (unless a very professional image is warranted).
