Breezing Commerce

Easy and clever ecommerce

Posted on 12 April 2016
Functionality

Still young but well thought (datastructures and features). Future oriented (new functions thanks plugin system). Breezingforms integration

Ease of use

Very intuitive, both for the admin and user interface. Some parts still need further documentation, but the developper explains quickly

Support

top class, See below

Documentation

still in progess. Basic concepts and usage well explained, also with a video tutorial. Open questions are explained within minutes (really!)

I used this to: Website for aircraft renting. Currently using breezingforms for flight reports since more than 2 years.Reliable product. Top developper. I selected Breezingcommerce for flight payment instead of other well know ecommerce solution, because I have 100% confidence in the developper.

DPCalendar Lite

Great extension, many features, easy to set-up

Posted on 01 October 2015
Functionality

Has all what I need: maps, user events and so on.

Ease of use

I feared the upgrade from Gcalendar to DPcalendar... It just went on easily. For my type of events, it makes sens to keep all in Joomla.

Support

very friendly email support

Documentation

Even with my free account, I allways found the needed informations to have my questions solved.

I used this to: Displaying scheduled events in 4 websites, Upgraded from Gcalendar (which was easy to use after initial setup). I don't miss Gcalendar. I know I have to purchase the pro version if I want to keep DPcalendar synced with google, but I'm ready to pay for extra features.

Breezing Forms

excellent form tool

Posted on 22 February 2014

I searched for a simple and very configurable tool for entering data in my website.



This tool is very well designed, the free (=lite) version has a lot of flexibility to offer (dataentry validation, calculation between fields, email to users and so on and so on). Best of all, the support contains tons of helpful hints as well as many people ready to help. Thank you very much. highly recommended!


Quiz Deluxe

excellent quiz component!

Posted on 28 August 2013

I've been using Joomla quiz deluxe since about 2 years now and I must say that I'm very satisfied with the product.



I'm teacher in a technical school and searched for a way to help my students learn skills. Some of these skills are based on repetition, which obviously is not allways motivating...



Before joomla, I used another hostbased solution, but was not satisfied with the flexibility and efficiency of that solution. The more questions in my quizzes, the more painfull was the configuration of the quiz and their usage on a java based application. I was not very happy...



I started my own joomla project, checked the different joomla Quiz components, and opted for joomlaquiz deluxe



I imported all my questions from the preceeding system (was quite a work), but now both joomla backend and frontend are very fast.



Joomla quiz deluxe allows me to integrate different quizzes for mathematics learning. These quizzes are very flexible and easy to setup, with "randomization" of the questions and answer ordering.



The product has beeen very efficient for me as website's administrator, for many students to improve their skills in a fun way and for my colleagues, who can easily, check their own student's results, from the website, directly on their email.



The product's learning curve for the product is not to steep, considering the many options it provides. Ticket based help is efficent and quick, support from joomplace has allways been kindly, in translation, technical explanation and so on.





On line help was so so on the beginning, but now seems quite usable.





There are still a couple of features which I miss from my old system :



* printing a quiz as a written test, so I can use it in a classrom (we still have "dry" classrooms with no computers)

* using math formulas in quiz questions with randomly generated startvalues





I'll definitely stay with joomla quiz deluxe, expanding it's use for other learning fieds or subjects. The component is well worth the money!


Content Uploader Pro

Huge time saver

Posted on 21 January 2013

I'm the owner of a school joomla 2.5 website where I need to weekly update about 100 articles containing tabular data.



My source data are in excel files.



Until now, every week, I manually copied my data and pasted them in text articles. What a waste of time!



Every article has access right connected with some registred user(s), so I have to be well organized.



I searched for solution to automate this process and decided to give a try to Content Uploader.



The description and reviews were positive and I decided to subscribe to Content Uploader PRO.



It didn't work (in other words, I couldn't manage to make it work) and at first I had no feedback from my messages in the forum.



I was a bit disappointed, then I made some more insistent mails to the component's author, well, it was on the 1. or 2nd of January, so Champagne may have played his role... ;-)



Then Pete mailed me back, and within 2 days, with some help from him, my problem was solved at my full satisfaction.



Thank you very much Pete, my money is well invested in this time saving component.



I estimate, this will spare me about 30 hours of my time every year!





If you need some help in french translation, Pete, just mail me.


AcyMailing Starter

If only I knew before...

Posted on 13 January 2013

This is really a awesome free extension in professional quality.



I maintain a couple of sites where from time to time I need to send mails to registered users.



I scratched my head when searching for a solution and was quite unsure.



Today, I needed to send a mail to a couple of users and was bored to make this with Outlook and manually selecting mail addresses.



I just backuped my Joomla 2.5.8 production website and "risked" to test this component. Ok having so many positive reviews brings the risk down ;-)



I installed the component and set up my first newsletter within minutes, without ever having to read a single help document.



This is exactly what I need.



Congratulation and thank you very very much



Jacques

Thank you for sharing this.

Simple Image Holder

very usefull, simple to use, perfect for me

Posted on 12 February 2012

I spent hours searching a way to display a webcams'picture (from an URL) as a thumbnail, and then displaying the whole picture by clicking over it.



I found a lot of solutions when images are already on the server, but nothing comparable to this one (image on external server).



Thanks to Omar's excellent module, I saved my day.



Tested on joomla 2.5



Thank you, thank you so much, donation is following



btw: I managed to put 2 of my images on the same article, using the also excellent NoNumber's ModulesAnywhere plugin.
