Great component

Posted on 27 February 2012
Unique product and great support, actually the only available Link management component for J 2.5.

best out there for Joomla

Posted on 07 October 2011
Hello there,

First of all - thank you for your excellent work.

I'd like to suggest a new feature to your jv-le module. I have used that at my previous site powered by Wallpaper Script - and really miss in jv-ex. Please, check this (point 5)

1. Newly added links (Recent Links)

2. Random Links (Links selected randomly)

3. Highly rated Links (Partner Link Rating must be enabled in JV-LE component configuration)

4. Featured Links (Featured Links option must be enabled in JV-LE component configuration)

5. NEW FEATURE - High traffic links (partner sites that sends more traffice than athers will be shown at first position .... respectively the site which send less traffice will be placed at the end of list)

Thank you for your business.
I had no problems at all, and the changes I wanted to make were not hard to find using the author's web site and Firebug. Lot's of really good features. The description calls it "entry level", but it seems much more than that to me.

I wanted to replace the Joomla Web Links component because URL's of links are not visible to search engines or other link exchange submissions. JV-LE solves that problem.

The only thing I wish it did is to allow manual ordering of categories and links. The author's site provides an edit to allow alphabetical ordering instead of the default.

Thanks for a great free component!

Database error encountered

Posted on 08 April 2011
Followed every instruction, but allways when I try to add a link an push the submit button, the following message appears: "Database error encountered" ... My sites are just on a shared server, but it beats all requirements (safe mode off, Curl on, etc.). I tested JV-E. on three different Joomla sites - one of them was a complete fresh installation (V. 1.5.23) ... allways the same result. Took me a lot of time.

It seems to be a great extension ... if it works. Sorry, but therefor just an average review. I really would like to make it run to test it.

Not bad component

Posted on 16 February 2011
Not bad component but...

There is no language file for admin panel...

Need edit some files in admin folder.

And what I have to do when a new version?

Again fix these files?

Another excellent extension for Joomla.

It is intuitive to install and use, and even support Joomfish.

I also find the support and forum great. I posted a question on the support forum and within 5 minutes I had the answer that helped me. Impressive.

Highly recommended.

Is Not Free

Posted on 11 August 2010
Why do you advertise this extension as non commercial which i presume you mean is free.

And when i register and try to download it asks for a subscription payment. Very Poor way to drum up business and your registration process gave me a headache.
Owner's reply: Ofcourse the product is FREE and tons of users are downloading it everyday from our website.

The problem in your case, is that, your account was pending activation by email, which was sent to you after registration. You never bothered to click on the link to activate your account, until when, obviously you will be denied access to downloads for this free product. We are doing this to protect spam registrations and we cant help it, if you feel this is giving you a headache. It is necessary for us to run a spam free site.

We help our customers in many ways - online chat support, email support, forum support and you still do not seem to have thought about using any of them, to find out why your account was pending activation!. Infact the message clearly says why it is and you never seem to have read it properly too.

Crashed Server

Posted on 17 July 2010
I just installed this a few days ago and began testing it on a server which meets all their stated specs. When I attempted to ad a link with their atuomated script for veryifying the reciprocol, as a test, it crashed the entire server taking my site down as well as serveral other sites hosted on the same server. Thank goodness there where backups. It took the better part of a day to get everything back running.

After getting everything running again, I unistalled and reinstalled it attempting it a second time with the same result, crashed server.

I guess you get what you pay for... this being free. considering how bad an experience it has been with this I won't even consider purchasing their commerical product even if it does work well. too bad I really like the features they describe.
Owner's reply: Well, thanks for the review, but you could have always approached us in our support forum, and given us a chance to investigate what was the cause and help you in solving it. It could be well due to some parameter that is not related to JV-LE as well (like php version, or conflicts).
