A Lot of Serious Issues



Posted on 17 April 2020
Functionality
The extension does not work when somebody attempts to assign it to a module position. Please message me as this form is hideous.
Ease of use
It doesn't work for the majority of people who will want to install it in a decent layout so i'm afraid I can't rate it as in as easy.

...
Documentation
The documentation is good, sadly the module does not work as intended due to fundamental bugs and therefore it renders the doc a bit useless
I used this to: I can't use it all. It's ironic where I need to type more I can't and where the response could do with being shorter - for this question, I can't do that either. Thank you Joomla for an absolutely hideous website.
Functionality
I tried it by chance, and I find a gold mine. Manages images and automatically synchronizes folders, watermarks, image optimization etc..
Ease of use
It takes some time to understand it, because it is full of options. However, it is very intuitive.
Support
I didn't contact them because I didn't need them. I just played around with the settings.
Documentation
I didn't need it, I read the documentation out of curiosity, and I saw it and it is very detailed
I used this to: I upload images via FTP and this plugin does the rest, optimization, cropping, watermark, galleries etc.
I recommend a few more options for mobile. However, it remains a great product to try absolutely.
Functionality
The gallery was set up in minutes, the required parameters found immediatelly in documentation. I use this extension since years.
Ease of use
Putting images in directory taking the example code and its displaying
Support
20mn support time from developer with to the point solution (cache deleted by some other extension) is unparalelled in IT Support. Thank you
Documentation
Well structured and easy to use, all the various parameters can be found as needed. The format of 1 file allows discovering new features
I used this to: A website for my project founding a private school in Germany, we need different access levels for image series, since children are shown. Sigplus allows that integrated with Joomla rights management
Functionality
Excellent. Lots of possibilities. Unfortunately on Android and Linux the slideshows etc do not work for us
Ease of use
Exceptional! Easy to configure and customise within articles. Love it!
Support
We have one issue that can not be resolved via the documentation. Sadly there seems no way obvious means to contact to developer,
Documentation
Excellent. Wish more developers would do it like this. Everything is well laid for the beginner through to advanced user. Very Good!
I used this to: Sadly, for testing only, since it only seems to display slideshows on Windows OS based systems for us.
Functionality
Set it up for simply gallery grid with lightbox slideshow when one of images is clicked. Did it out of the box after just one option change.
Ease of use
I had my pictures pre-cropped & ready to go in a folder, which helped. Put in the shortcode with my folder name & done. Super easy!
Support
Note this requires certain server-side extensions present in your hosting environment (true for most images add-ons).
Documentation
Documentation is short but very clear. Good walk-through for getting started. From there, play around with the options to see what they do.
I used this to: A light weight, responsive grid gallery, and clicking on an image pops up larger with option to arrow through collection. This does exactly that out of the box with option layout="flow". WOW - super fast load on my old Android phone, too!

Very Good

In facts, they showed up, the functionalities are obviously visible.
Ease of use

We spent so much time together, then became friends. I love to talk, message and send random pictures through whatsup. Amazing.
Documentation

I used this to: one friend of mine is a gay photographer. It a gallery full of dicks.
Functionality
great gallery extension
Ease of use
Very fast for basic setup, a bit harder for the more advanced settings
I used this to: simple galleries, works very simple. In minutes got it working. I have to look at the more advanced settings, because when I look at the demo pages much more is possible. Very interested in the 1.5 version. Looks neat.
