Functionality

Works out of the box

Ease of use

Needs a little bit of a learning curve, but that´s all.

Support

Awsome, fast and very helpfull.

Documentation

I think its perfect although a lot to read...

I used this to: Canadian BMW motorbike club.
I contacted Alex to get some infos about an issue i had. He replied within an hour, got a new version that fits our needs ready within 24 hours, supported the testing and gave some extra hints. So he went far beyond my expectations.
Great job, Alex

Functionality

Easy to install, intuitive easy to learn. I am complicated, needing integration with both K2 & CB...it's great and fully automated!

Ease of use

No problems. A little learning curve (as with anything) but I could install on another site now within minutes.

Support

Alex replied so swiftly & went above and beyond to give me functionality that wasn't supported. He cared that I needed it & made it happen

Documentation

Lots of walkthrough documentation that told me everything I needed to know about any aspect of the free downloads and that which I bought

I used this to: An automated registration, with free subscription to an online store, where members can upgrade their subscription. They can then access a further product range which Smart Subscriptions "read more" add on prevented them accessing until they had upgraded.

Functionality

It's install easily.sad thing is it only works in demo mode. Does not work in live mode after you buy the pay-pal plugin. Cannot create acct

Ease of use

Easily to use . Configuration etc. Explanatory, but paypal has limited directions.

I used this to: I try to use it for subscription on my site.
Owner's reply: PayPal is now upgrading security standards. You have to check your server configuration (contact your hosting provider) - cURL PHP extension must be updated to a version with TLS support. You can read more on PayPal developers web. PayPal payments will not work with outdated cURL library, doesn't matter which software you use. Smart Subscriptions PayPal plugin code cannot solve this problem.

Functionality

Leaves away the unnessecary stuff, includes all what is important.

Ease of use

Easy to handle, even in combination with CB

Smart Countdown 3 is a highly customizable yet easy to setup FX animatied responsive countdown / count up module for Joomla 3.0 Its main feature (and what makes it different from some of the existing countdowns for Joomla!) is that it handles browser suspend/resume events correctly. There is a wide scope of scenarios when browsers stop (pause) the scripts and timers: from putting a desktop in suspend state to switching mobile Safari tabs or even scrolling the screen on iOS devices while the module is displayed on the page. In all cases, after the browser resumes, Smart Countdown 3 calculates the time the scripts were suspended and adjusts the values of its counter automatically (no need to reload the page). Smart Coundown 3 uses jQuery animation for digits transitions thus providing good cross-browser support. Smart countdown includes translations for English (backend and frontend), Spanish, German, French, Italian and Russian (frontend only) and is well prepared for multilingual environments. It is aware of singular/plural forms of time unit labels it displays (Years, Months, Weeks, Days, Hours, Minutes and Seconds) for the majority of languages, including special cases – French zeros (that are singular) and Russian (third label form for values ending with 2 to 4 but not with 11 to 14), and can be extended with user-defined “plural suffices” methods for the languages that need their specific logic. Other features: • Years, months and weeks can be displayed in counter intervals, along with traditional days, hours, minutes and seconds • Digits animation - virtually unlimited number of effects and styles using basic animation profiles (included) and installable profiles add-ons • More than one countdown on the same page with individual settings • Support for events import plugins • AJAX used for event queries, Smart Countdown 3 will behave correctly even if its template position is cached on your site • Various module layouts • Responsive behavior - the module automatically scales its elements and changes its layout adapting to the template position width • Independent font sizes for event text, counter digits and time unit labels (“Days”, “Hours”, etc.) • RTL languages support in all counter layouts • Custom CSS styles for all counter elements • Option to display a "Time has arrived!" kind of message on countdown 0 • Automatic redirection (may be disabled in options) to a menu item or an URL on countdown 0 or mouse click

Smart Countdown Recurring Events

Smart Countdown Recurring Events adds recurring events support for Smart Countdown 3 module for Joomla. Countdown will automatically switch to the next event in a recurrence series after the current event is over. Event import plugins make the life of Joomla site administrator easier - there is no need to manually update countdown deadline and event titles for the next event each time when the previous event is in past. Event import plugins generate an events timeline and the main module can then display counter to the closest event and switch to next event even if the page was not refreshed. A bunch of event import plugins is already available, but all of them require a specific Joomla component or a calendar service (Google Calendar) to be installed and/or configured. Smart Countdown Recurring Events is a stand-alone plugin and doesn't depend on other applications except (naturally) the main Smart Countdown module. Although not having the power of a professional event manager like Google Calendar, Smart Countdown Recurring Events will suit perfectly for simple recurrence scenarios and can be set up and running in minutes. Requires Smart Countdown 3 or later. Not compatible with Smart Countdown 2.5! For 2.5 version browse project homepage. Supported recurrence patterns: - Hourly - event repeats several times during the day at a given interval starting from a given time. Supported intervals: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 and 12 hours. - Daily - event repeats every day on a given time. - Weekly - event repeats one or more days of a week on a given time. Unchecking all days will disable the pattern, checking all days will have the same effect as daily pattern. - Monthly - event repeats on the date selected every month on a given time. Feel free to select dates greater than 28. Although not all months will contain the date selected, the date will be implicitly converted to the last day of month in such cases. Selecting "31" as the date for monthly recurrence will result in event repeating on the last day of each month. - Monthly by week and day - event repeats on a selected day of selected week, e.g. "first monday", "third monday", "last friday" etc. of each month. - Yearly - event repeats on the date selected on a given time. Date selection already implements basic validation, i.e. you will not be able to select JUNE 31. However FEB 29 is available and will have the following meaning: repeat event every year, for leap years - on FEB 29, for the rest of years - on FEB 28 (selecting FEB 28 will result in a repeat on FEB 28 for all years). - Custom dates - not an interval-based recurrence. Enter up to 10 event date-and-times and they will be converted into a timeline. The counter will switch to the next event after the current one is in past. Other features: Event duration Two independent configuration for each module instance with an option to merge both recurrence patterns into a single timeline (useful for different weekdays and weekends schedule model) Supports the recently introduced Smart Countdown - countdown to event end: a countdown to event end time can be displayed while event is in progress.

osTicky (osTicket 1.9.4 Bridge) is Joomla 3.0 component that integrates the popular open-source "osTicket Support Desk system" into Joomla environment. It works with the osTicket V1.9.4 and later and provides complete functionality of osTicket frontend interface - users can raise tickets, view their tickets' progress, send replies, etc. Versions for osTicket 1.6 - 1.7 and 1.8 - 1.9.3 are also available. osTicky is a fresh look at ticket support systems for web designers and programmers. The added value of osTicky (and that is why this extension was created) is that it offers a new type of web-based service requests - "Sticky Tickets". This type of tickets is especially useful for web designers when they have to gather feedback from clients. A client simply issues a ticket "in place" - i.e. pointing to the element he or she would like to comment or modify. osTicket staff member will get the page and location of this element already attached to the ticket and a link (in ticket alert email) to view the ticket as a sticky note, so he can start working on the suport issue without losing time in telephone calls/emails. Main features summary: • Seamless integration of osTicket frontend functionality into a Joomla site • Staff members working with original osTicket administration/staff backend see the tickets exactly the same way as if they were issued using native osTicket frontend - no learning needed • All configuration values that affect the component's behavior (creating tickets, posting messages, attaching files, etc.) are taken from original osTicket administration settings - no need to create additional configurations for osTicky • "Create ticket" Joomla menu ítem can be configured to be locked to a specific help topic • If a user is logged in his name and email are automatically populated into the fields on a new ticket form • "Sticky-note" ticket mode. The information sent automatically with a new web-ticket may significantly decrease the time needed for a staff member to identify the issue, providing reliable "fingerprint" of the element associated with the ticket. • The client (ticket's sender) can review his tickets in form of a list, ticket details with message thread and as a sticky note "in place" (on the page where the ticket was created) • Staff member (ticket's reciever) can view a "sticky-note" ticket on the page where it was created (following the link he recieves in "New Ticket Alert" email)

Login Assistant is a simple and extremely lightweight login/redirection component for Joomla that makes logging in to your site as easy as just following a link, but still secure because both username and password (may be left blank) encoded into this link are also encrypted. Login Assistant can login users silently if set so in component options, and both user and password are encoded in a link. If password was left in blank or silent login was not enabled a user is first redirected to login screen with username and password (optionally) already filled in with the data encrypted in the provided link. He has just to click Login button to be redirected to the specific page of your site (also encoded in the login link). This extension may be useful for assisted login to view demo pages of your site or a support ticket progress online. Links created by Login Assistant backend utility can be sent as email messages or inserted as a link in an article. The target page (where the particular user will be redirected to after login) can be defined individually for each link created. Main features: - A user does not have to (and actually can not) know his username and password to login to your site - Both username and password in the link generated are encrypted - You control how your users login via Login Assistant links, if you block a user in User Manager he will not be able to enter - Redirect-only function for the links created with no user selected - Silent (automatic) user login if both username and password are included in a link - All links generated by the application are saved to a log file

Random Count is a module that shows a fictitious but yet highly credible counter on Joomla 3 sites. The module configuration supports pseudo-random increasing or descreasing patterns of up to 32 elements, each element holding the delay (in seconds.miliseconds) before next increment and the increment value (delta). Each module instance can be configured individually even if displayed on the same page. The counter values are always consistent, doesn't matter when you open the page or resume your computer / handheld from suspend state - the counter will show same values on all computers, as if they were requested from server. Minimum and maximum counter values can optionally be set. Even if minimum value is not set, counter will never display negative values. Counter markup can be customized via module options. A currency symbol can be prepended/appended to the counter. The counter can be also embedded into custom HTML.
