Support

I asked a question in forum and it was well answered

Documentation

sufficient

I used this to: responsive photo page

Functionality

The functionality is not good, the thumbnails resizing/coping is terrible. Also responsibility on mobile devices is very bad.

Ease of use

Not so easy because there is a bunch of options which make this gallery not user friendly.

Support

The support is not good, I ask questions about my problem with the thumbnails resizing/cropping and 3 days no one answering.

Documentation

Documentation is clear, but not helpful for my issue.

I used this to: I use this component for website gallery.
Owner's reply: Hi, I really don't know how to answer this vicious review.


"This gallery pretend to be the best, but there are serious bugs which need to be resolved by the developer."

Please let me know who or what pretends to be the best? Do you have any material to say such lie? I really don't know any information about Phoca Gallery which "pretends" something. :-( Which serious bugs you mean? Phoca Gallery is here 10 years with over 10.000.000 downloads but I didn't get any information about some serious bug for now. I don't see any such information in Phoca Forum. :-( If you really know such serious bug, please write it here or in forum so I can take a look at it. But I don't see any specific/concrete information here or in forum :-(

"The functionality is not good, the thumbnails resizing/coping is terrible"

Sorry, I don't understand, what do you mean with resizing/coping? Thumbnails are made by GD library which is a part of PHP on your server, so if you mean some problems when creating thumbnails, maybe you should contact your hosting provider. But really hard to know what you exactly mean? :-(

"Not so easy because there is a bunch of options which make this gallery not user friendly."

Phoca Gallery works in default mode. The different options are here because they were asked by community. If you don't need the options, just don't use them. They are here for experienced users like web designers who can build many different gallery designs with help of Phoca Gallery. This is the advantage of the component.


"The support is not good, I ask questions about my problem with the thumbnails resizing/cropping and 3 days no one answering."

I didn't find any such question? Did you ask on Phoca Forum? http://www.phoca.cz/forum

I by myself have answered over 40.000 questions in different Joomla! forums (over 37.0000 in Phoca Forum) and there are moderators who answer the posts regularly (even we all do it in our free time, we answer the posts regularly). Do you really mean, that if someone answers over 37.000 posts in free time for free extensions, that "the support is not good"?


"Documentation is clear, but not helpful for my issue".
I don't think this is right argument for making bad review. :-(


I really don't know if this is some fake review, or if it was done by bad intention or it is only badly written, BUT PLEASE DON'T WRITE LIES INTO THE REVIEW.

Phoca Gallery is free extension. Made by community in free time (programming, developing, testing, documentation, support, etc. - all for free)



I think, this is even a shame for JED moderators. Ok, if a review is bad, I can understand that moderators cannot do anything with such review. But in case, it includes lies, will be great if JED moderators can at least remove the lies from the reviews.

TO ALL USERS - PLEASE WRITE REVIEWS AS YOU WANT, JUST WRITE BAD REVIEW IN CASE YOU HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THE EXTENSION, BUT PLEASE DON'T WRITE LIES INTO THE REVIEW COMMENTS.

Will be great.

Thank you very much for understanding, Jan

Phoca PDF is a Joomla! component. It enables you to set and create PDF documents in Joomla!. The whole Phoca PDF framework contains: * Phoca PDF component * Phoca PDF fonts * Phoca PDF plugins See more details here: http://www.phoca.cz/phocapdf Phoca PDF 5.1.2017 NEWS - ready for Joomla! 3.8.1 IMPORTANT: * Phoca PDF requires PHP 5 version installed on your server (because of newest TCPDF library) * You can set e.g. footer or header information with help of HTML text editor (like FCK, TinyMCE, JCE,...), but be aware because not all HTML tags and attributes, wich an editor produces, are supported in PDF * HTML code of your documents should be valid * You can set different parameters for your PDF document, so after setting these parameters you should test creating of your PDF documents because of possible conflicts caused by setting some extra values (e.g. setting of small PDF format x large font size x large line height, etc...) * You can set different font types for different parts of document (content, header, footer) but be aware, because PDF stores information about font types. UTF-8 fonts are supported and after storing information about all font types the size of PDF document can increase markedly * CREATING PDF IS NOT SO SMOOTH AS CREATING HTML OUTPUT. PDF DOCUMENT IS NOT RENDERED IF IT DOESN'T GET CORRECTLY CREATED DOCUMENT HEADER. For successfully PDF creating, the site should not render any PHP error messages or any bad encoding characters before rendering PDF. If you get blank page while PDF creating, mostly this is caused by above described problems. In such case try to see your error log or check the encoding of included PHP files.

To not be spammed, you should make all the recommendations in this article: http://www.phoca.cz/documents/3-phoca-guestbook-component/436-trying-to-prevent-from-spam and of course your server needs to have a lot of different tools to prevent from spam. And you need to care about your inputs, because for example, you cannot prevent from human spammers automatically :-( The situation with spam is really horrible (I know it from my experiencs where spam and ddos attacks makes my server down most of time) If you have some input form, you need to care about it everyday. Regarding Phoca Guestbook: I am regularly working on different protections for the Phoca Guestbook but reviews here based on spam issues (without reading the articles and making no other spam protections on the server) demotivate me like other "input form" developers. Maybe there will be nobody in the future who will do such extension because he/she will be blamed instead of the spammers :-( :-( Phoca Guestbook is not the one who spams your sites, please think of it while making a review. And Phoca Guestbook is not the one who ignores the spam problems (just see the article and the features) but you should know that it is really difficult to fight the spam :-( :-( =================================================
