Excellent, simple and effective

Even though I try to use as few extensions as possible, I install jSecure lite on all my sites.

It's such an effective way to prevent access to the administrator, and conceal the fact that you're running Joomla at a first glance.

Additionally, it hides it from DoS bots that try to crack the admin password

Fast, easy to use, well coded, just perfect

I am using quick2cart as a multistore-multivendor solution.



It only took one hour to get around the main configuration, this product absolutetly rocks!

Great integration with other extensions.

Excellent presales support, excellent customer support!



For end-users/site administrators



Nice set of features, it compares favourably with much more expensive and heavy solutions. Well thought owner dashboards, quick for managing orders and payments. Check the demo and forum you'll be impressed.



For developers and forward-looking site owners:

The implementation is extremely well thought, the code is clean and easy to understand, change and extend. Nice documentation, nice community and support forum.



I have tried most shops on the JED, I guess this is the absolute winner in terms of maintenance cost, ease of use, social integration. They even documented their APIs, and provide code samples to make our lives easier!

Excellent multi-purpose tool

easy to understand, functional, smart functions designed to save time. A must - have.

Amazing although a bit puzzling

I was really impressed with the quality of the extension, it's rare to find extensions that work so seamlessly and unobstrusively.



After a few days of playing with it, I must add, since I still had no idea how it could work so nicely, I went and looked at the source. Seldom have I seen such perfection in code, I guess this (very mature) version 7.7.7 will require few to no updates in the future.



A must for all power users!

Owner's reply: Thank you very much. It means a lot to me to hear praises about the code quality. As you might have guessed, a lot of time has gone into perfecting the code. People say code can't be perfect. But it's pretty close if I may say so myself. If I may not say so, then it's not.

Excellent product, excellent support

Great support. I mean, excellent.

I had a complicated issue, and I received an effective answer in less than 15 minutes, hardly the time to read my request.



Besides having great support, the product is really nice to work with. Manages all my extensions updates from one place.

Smooth

I've used most SEF extensions out there, and admittedly doing SEF on joomla is not so easy.

sh404 does an excellent job, with a very easy interface. Of course, everyone wants urls their way, and it's fairly easy to configure it properly.

Url management is really nice and easy to use. Plus some extra features like suggestions on 404 and social buttons.



On top of this, support is effective and fast even on the fourth enquiry. Couldn't ask for more.

Be prepared to spend some time on it.

I used this extension for a couple of simple websites. No problem there. So I tried it on a 3000 articles site, with several extensions and requirements. A nightmare.



The support was good, it's the product that is really really difficult to configure. Documentation is there (don't bother the video walkthrough though), but it's not enough to get you through the 8 pages of configuration safely.



Learnin curve: at least one week, with one hour daily. I felt sort of safe using it after 2 months.



The component will behave properly under strict supervision. However the component has the great disadvantage of creating the SEF urls when the page is first served. So if you:

a) serve your content outside of joomla, i.e. with direct db access

b) use any component / module that needs to access the url for a page from the backend

c) need the url in plugins when you save articles, for tweeting, or webservice integration

Forget this. It will cause you so much pain.



If you just have content, I guess it should work. But I had an average of 2 wrong urls daily with 10 new articles daily. We spend one hour weekly only for the maintenance.



Apart from this, a nice component with loads of extensions.
