Introduction

Contact Details, Address Book

Trombinoscope Contacts Pro extends the Joomla! Contacts core component by adding views (directory listings, single contact pages with enhanced forms), plugins (front editing, extra fields, ...) and the already available and free module Trombinoscope Contacts.

  • Favourite
  • Report

Present contacts in your projects and show business collaborator charts, school or sports team listings, testimonials, pet listings... in a very professional way.

Features:

  • filter contacts by categories, tags, keywords to create grid-like pages of contacts,
  • choose from a large selection of sort orders,
  • discover more ways to present single contacts (columns or tab layouts),
  • use modifiable themes to represent each contact,
  • show contact information with labels or icons and specify which information is accessible (some fields can be shown as icons only),
  • link contacts to views, external links, specific menu item,
  • create menu items (grid and list) to add pagination, alphabetic, category and tags index, inline search and print, live sort,
  • override layouts created for tags, icons, sort and index,
  • use the module (free to try!) to show specific contacts, logged user or related contacts/content (through keywords or tags),
  • extend the standard contact information with new fields (social media, map links, gender, birth date, company, department...),
  • modify the standard form output (labels, extra identity field and multiple subject fields, auto-response),
  • allow registered users to modify their contact information from the public site on their user profile and get notified when they do,
  • crop, filter and add effects to the contact pictures,
  • create high resolution thumbnails for crisp display on high pixel ratio screens (like Retina displays),
  • show contact pictures in smart search results,
  • import contacts from CSV and TXT files,
  • improve page loading times by removing white spaces from HTML output, caching contact pictures, styles and scripts generated by the component,
  • support for Joomla! 3.7 custom fields
  • support for Joomla! 3.9 privacy consent

Additional features:

  • adaptability to screen sizes (paysage-style cards can turn into portrait-mode under a certain size),
  • email obfuscation (to hide them from spambots),
  • internationalization,
  • name format,
  • address format with linking to Google Maps,
  • improved vcards that target personal or business profiles,
  • mobile-ready (touched phone numbers trigger direct calls),
  • carousel capabilities for module instances.

Functionality
Countless number of features and options to fully customize the view of Joomla! Contacts core component entries.
Ease of use
It has lots of options and parameters but within a few days you become familiar with them.
Support
The support on the official forum is fast and effective. Olivier is very patient and knows his extension from top to bottom.
Documentation
There ara lots of tutorials on the official website that solve almost any doubt that you have about the extension
Value for money
This extensions could cost twice its price and still worth the money 100%
I used this to: I created a little business directory with 1000+ entries. Each entry includes contact information for a local business of the little town where I live in Costa Rica. This was the only extension with the functionalities that I required to do it.
Owner's reply: Thank you Emanuel, I really appreciate your review :-)
Functionality
Works as described. It takes a while to get used to but the results are well worth it.
Ease of use
Once the learning curve (expected with any advanced components) is over then it's pretty straight forward.
Support
Olivier has provided the best support I have ever had from any developer, to the point of assisting when his component wasn't the problem.
Documentation
Well documented
Value for money
I purchased the developers license for three products and it's been worth every penny.
I used this to: Two large websites, one with over 16,000 members. The Executives and Directors change on a regular basis and this simplifies the tasks of keeping them all in order. Also, we can hide contact information (by field) to those that are not logged in to improve confidentiality.
Owner's reply: Thank you Alan for the review, I really appreciate it!

Excellent extension

I used this to: Our client needed a visual company directory. Every entry had to display contact info alongside the logo, Every company has their own page with extra info. It has an index and all entries van be found via search. All contacts have a user account and can manage their own info.

Owner's reply: Thank you, Dave, for your review! I really appreciate it. The product offers a lot of different options for maximum functionality and I understand there is a little bit of a learning curve when it comes to setting things up.

We used this to create a member list without knowing anything about databases or MySql. It worked perfectly.
