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


Posted on 11 February 2017
Functionality

Almost perfect. The only thing missing is that there are no user defined fields

There's a bit of a learning curve, but generally very comfortable for someone familiar with the Joomla backend.

Support

Excellent. I had an issue with a module due to an oversight on my part. Olivier sorted it out in no time.

Documentation

It's online and the pages are a bit "crowded", but it's workable.

No argument. Worth every cent.

Support

I came across a minor problem in a view after migrating my project. Got very swift, friendly and accurate support. Very happy!

Documentation

Very clear documentation, also usable as 'walk through' with detailed info on all possible settings.

Value for money

A very powerful tool with many options to use for all my clients. Great and fast personal support. All for a fair price. I recommend it.

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 Maurice for the review, I really appreciate it!

Excellent value and worth every penny.

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.

Great Extension

Functionality

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

This plugin is meant to help clean and resolve front and back end issues when using instances of jQuery alongside the Mootools libraries. WHAT IT DOES OUT-OF-THE BOX calls jQuery and jQuery UI libraries from the Google CDN (with or without protocol) - but you can do it locally too, places jQuery libraries after MooTools calls for perfect compatibility, adds the noConflict() code alongside the jQuery library call, strips out extra jQuery and jQuery UI libraries, including the noConflict() calls added by other modules or plugins, lets you choose jQuery UI basic styling or custom theme. WHAT YOU CAN TWEAK disable MooTools libraries tentatively in the frontend, enable or disable the plugin in specific portions of the site, from template to single page, use reporting to get feedback on what the plugin engine has done, add or remove scripts and stylesheets, strip blank lines left by the modifications made to the page, prevent some libraries to be stripped out, modify the way the engine works by default (do not add or remove noConflict() code...), ... Try the new jQuery Easy Profiles for Joomla! 3+ that allows multiple configurations to work seamlessly for different parts of a site. Speed up your pages and limit your server load.

Custom reCaptcha is a plugin that gives you control over the look of Google's reCaptcha. It can replace the standard reCaptcha plugin packaged with Joomla! and adds solutions to make any version of the reCaptcha widget responsive. reCaptcha from Google is a 'one-size-fits-all-designs' widget that does not offer many possible styles. The purpose of this simple plugin is to give you access to the raw widget (version 1) and allow you to perform your own skinning. Version 2 of the Google widget is not skin-nable but the plugin attempts to render it responsive. Fully supports all versions of reCaptcha (version 1 without themes, no Captcha reCaptcha and invisible reCaptcha). More information at https://simplifyyourweb.com/free-products/custom-recaptcha

Take jQuery fixing to the next level and use the full power of the Joomla! framework to create separate jQuery Easy configuration profiles. Fine-tune your jQuery requirements (including jQuery UI and Mobile) and only fix issues on pages that cause problems. And now, you can even limit the plugin's processing to the head area of your site pages! That will consume fewer server resources and definitely improve performance. Tweak the regular expressions used throughout and share them in the forum! Manage different templates (perfect to separate desktop and mobile websites), select menu items, user access or language to completely make jQuery Easy work for your website. New: manage button and tooltip conflicts between Bootstrap and jQueryUI! The jQuery Easy Profiles package contains a module and a plugin. Enable the plugin to run jQuery Easy on your website. No changes are made until profiles (or module instances) are created. Set a custom template position that will be used by the modules and use the report feature to see the plugin in action. Restrict plugin access to Super Users and test your settings on your production site, without any risk. The visitors of your site won't suspect a thing. Create any number of profiles by using the module's framework and decide where the plugin will be active. Do finer tuning by targeting templates, components and/or using optional 'enable' and 'disable' parameters. Set the basic and expert parameters like it is already done in jQuery Easy.
