As with every other Joomlart extension I've ever tried, this looks good on paper but fails to hold up. It has broken my site multiple times
Ease of use
Looks good on paper, ha ha. Apparently, I need to write 64 characters here.
Developers are very slow to fix bugs. I've never had so much trouble with any other developer's extensions.
Documentation is not the issue. Apparently, I also need to write 64 characters here.
Value for money
Every time I have bought a Joomlart extension, I've said this will be the last one. But I mean it this time. Don't buy this. Just... don't
I used this to: Throwing my money away, causing migraines, keeping other developers employed fixing my site when it breaks because of this extension.

Very Good for Article Filter

Posted on 17 September 2020
Little hard for new comer to setup but documentation and support very help
Ease of use
Easy to use once it setup everything is auto to fetch new data. The filter options works very well with ajax
full 5 start to support , Pankaj helped a lot for fast reply and usefull tips .............
Good documentation, for new comer little more effort to set up. a video doc also helpful in some case
Value for money
Value for money, using it for k2 and Joomla articles with ultimate small subscription of extension its very good
I used this to: using it on my blog website to filter the Joomla articles and K2
It is missing so many things to be versatile filter. It can not handle good large indexing due to lack of controls and settings.
Ease of use
Yes it is easy. I like how sorting of filters are done in setup. Do not like that I do not have ability to remove horizontal sorting widget.
Support is ok but what can they do when ext. needs alot of improvements
Not so good. Improve it a little bit and do not let users have to learn everything so to speak.
Value for money
No it does not have good usability for money given. If not improved well I do not see great usability at the moment
I used this to: J2store Pro filter options, but since it can not index products for example in batch-es to avoid server time-outs it is not that great.
Owner's reply: Hi
Sorry to hear about the issue, i request you to post the issue on our official support forum and our tech support team will help you out if there is any issue related to product.
