The only app I know of which allows you to accept accounts receivable payments online.

Very, very fast, patient and helpful.

Powerful solution

Functionality
At module level, control which categories are searched. Great for big sites with several sections. Nothing else like it out there.

Ease of use
Pretty intuitive to set up, but I have mixed feelings due to no documentation or support (at least in my case).

Value for money
Priced on the high end of paid search extensions. Does work super great. But I would have expected some support and a brief user manual.
I used this to: Advanced search of a large articles archive in a big, complicated site which has several different sections. We needed a widget that would only search the archive, not the whole expansive website. For that, fantastic. No other search tool I am aware of can do these tricks.

Nice job!

Functionality
Outstanding. Except, across the board, Internet Explorer does not support smooth scrolling parallax effect. So this is a limitation.
100
Ease of use
Also outstanding. Intuitive controls are very easy to configure. Fun to play around with.

Support
Prompt and helpful. Shir got back to me almost immediately - on a Saturday!

Documentation
Much better than average. And there isn't much need for it.

Value for money
Satisfied with value.
I used this to: Homepages

Best in class

Functionality
Allowed us to deploy a simple goof-proof front-end form to allow unskilled contributing authors to upload articles to a category blog.
76
Ease of use
The learning curve is a little steep, but well worth climbing. I got lots of help in understanding the basic functionality.

Support
Support is outstanding, patient and prompt. These developers really stand behind their product. Thank you, Patrick and Julien.
75
Documentation
Documentation isn't as clear as it could be, but they are working hard to improve it. With power comes complexity, inevitably.

I used this to: We bought the pro version to expedite production of an online yacht club newsletter via ACY Mailing. Is the only thing I found that really does work completely as advertised. Extremely versatile. Will be ;putting it to use in other time-saving ways.

Credit this company for coming up with a brilliant idea. Build your own link directory website; or, like us, use it invite others to create quality partner links. The SEO potential is awesome, if used correctly. My only issue was the extreme difficulty of customizing the front-end view. But this developer is wonderfully responsive and dedicated; and he gave generously of his time to help us get the look and feel we needed. He also assures me that the next version will be far easier to customize. Some of the best service I have ever received from a Joomla extensions developer. Thank you, JV-Extensions!

A great way to go for a free membership website. Let's you collect custom member information without the need for a big complicated subscription system and checkout cart. Found it a little tricky to get working because the documentation is on the weak side. On the other hand, Emir provides almost instant support. He answered me in five minutes. I can't say enough about his dedication to customers. And his patience with me! He promised to work up some more detailed documention soon. On balance this is a great little component that does exactly what it says and has great support behind it. All at the right price.

Fantastic

This litle module is amazingly powerful and flexible. We used it build a big beautiful aggregator page for worldwide hunting news. On a weekend, Stergios helped us fix a baffling scripting conflict on the front page. I only wish that level of outstanding support was more common in the Joomla world. In terms of what it can do and the support behind it, absolutely an all-time Best Buy. Plus, there's now an upgraded version that works even better than the original.

Mixed Feelings


Posted on 16 January 2014
Ingenious but quirky. Big learning curve. Hard to customize. Documentation sketchy and support worse. They might reply to your question quickly. Or not at all. I've had a request pending for almost three weeks. Nothing from the company in all that time. When they do respond, it might be helpful. Or cursory. The "online chat?" Always offline. Never once got a reply. Have received more help from fellow boarders. Will the owners even bother to read this review? Who can say. Still I'm using it because it has some great capabilities. I fervently hope these are just growing pains for Joomgalaxy; and that things will improve over time.

Terrific App, Even Better Support


Posted on 10 December 2013
100
Functionality
For selling subscriptions and memberships, not much it can't do. In fact I can't think of anything. Deviously well conceived.
100
Ease of use
Keeping in mind the complexity of this app, the documentation is exceptional and the overall scheme intuitive.
100
Support
Only a few companies out there are in the same league as Joomdonation.
100
Documentation
It always could be better, but this is among the best I've seen. They are committed to continual improvement.
100
Value for money
Big bang for the buck. Super compassionate about what they do.
I used this to: Association membership management.

Terrific

As an early adopter, I can say I'm very, very impressed. Am building a complete social media suite with EasyBlog, EasySocial, EasyDiscuss and Komento. The themes for each don't quite line up... yet. I'm sure StackIdeas is working on that part. They are a smart, enterprising bunch. Great new addition. Bar none, the best support in the business.
