Ease of use
Easy to install and get started

Support
There is none for the free component, fair enough as docs are clear.

Documentation
Docs are clear for component. However, was disappointed in docs for commercial K2 plugin. Plugin simply didn't work following instructions.

Value for money
I used this to: Family/tourist site. Really wanted to use this with K2 but will stick to the standard GeoCode factory as it works fine with articles and the K2 plugin simply did not work and there is no free support.

Great extension!

Really enjoyed this extension, surprised to see I am the first to review :) It is highly cutomisable (also in the admin) and responsive. Really an ideal module for a frontpage or portfolio page.

Very good

Good component, just what I needed for my website. Agree with suggestions below (especially link direct from menu) but have to praise the developers for their very fast and effective support! Personally I would think being able to add one link into multiple categories would be a cool future feature. Otherwise: very good and looks good!

Advance warning


Posted on 12 November 2010
It is not in my habit to write negative reviews, certainly not for free extensions but I think an advance warning is in order here. Do NOT install Ninjaboard when you have CD Captcha installed. It made it impossible for me to login to my backend! On their forum I read it is a known conflict... (also provides an answer for people like me who nearly had a panic attack after being denied access to their own site admin ;-) Before installing an extension I usually read the JED reviews, not the product forums... So I hope you will allow this friendly warning to other users. Having said that, I think Ninjaboard looks great and probably works well if you don't have CD Captcha installed. Would be great if the issue can be fixed though, then I will definitely give it another try. I love the clean look and CB Integration (although I didn't get to test it yet)!
Owner's reply: hi oranjegids,

I am sorry that they didn't work together, but unfortunately this is not something wrong with Ninjaboard but with the core design plugin.

1. There are quite a few extensions that when installed alongside the plugin your site dies completely.
2. No other plugin kils your site when installed with Ninjaboard.

This is because of how they try to find out what page they are on, using the JApplication object. However this shouldn't be used in an on after route plugin because (as the errors suggest) anything that sets data to the page header will cause an error.

If they instead replaced line 116 of the plugin :

$appname = $application->getName();

with

$appname = JRequest::getVar('option');

Then none of us would have this problem.

Great but...

Love the way this module (and revolver maps) works and looks. But why oh why can't the link open in a new window. The reasoning on the FAQ "your guests will come back, don't worry" doesn't really work for me ;-) Agree with earlier posts suggesting a commercial version at a reasonable fee without link and logo.
