Not that compatible with Jommla 3.6.2

Posted on 29 August 2016
The UAM gives all the front end facilities that you need and works mostly well.. There has been no version for J 3.6.x and some dont work
Ease of use
This is very easy to use and includes features to add, edit and delete articles. There is a bug that you cannot restict the categories
Not convinced about this - issues have been raised, which have no updates provided -not convinced that it is still supported in timely way
Good documentation
Value for money
I used this to: It enables users who are administering content to not require backend access, which is really useful.

Desperately hoping the category issue gets resolved as this is an issue for our user administrators

Excellent - This is what everyone needs

Posted on 08 September 2013
I have been looking for an extension like this for a long time, and I am pleased to say that when I happened upon this one, it has lived up to my hopes.

It is simple to configure, works out of the box and does exactly what it says on the tin.

I use the extension to move reviews (articles) from a current to historic category, when a finish publishing date is reached, so that they can be viewed on another page. That said, I am aware that they can be archived or deleted as well, but I dont need this.

I have been trying to find an extension as good as this, but the only ones I could find either didn't work, or came at a cost.

Try it - I recommend it and you wont look back.

I did contact the support team once and got a response back in a day (even at the weekend) - that doesn't happen too often.

Well done mediahof.

Good Extension - Works Well, but options limited

Posted on 04 July 2013
This plugin is good and works well.

There is one feature request that would make it excellent - The current situation is that the text has to completely move off to the left before it comes in from the right - that leaves a big space with nothing happening, until all the text has gone off left - then it comes back in from the right.

A massive improvement would be for the text to come back in from the right as soon as the text has started to leave from the left - making it truly more cyclic.

Make this happen and it will be a fantastic rolling product for anyone to use.

Fantastic Extension and Great Support - Best I have seen

Posted on 23 April 2013
I have spent alot of time reviewing Extensions that give me a view (on my website) of the Facebook page that my group use, so everyone can see all the posts and comments without having to go to Facebook. The problem I have always found is the formatting of the posts is always poor.

This Extension completely rewrites the book on that ascertion - It provides excellent options to changing the colours, format, size and options that are required.

Additionally, when you buy the extension, you get excellent support from the Mridul (developer) as well - He is keen to work with you when you identify improvements or changes and provides prompt and skilled updates as necessary.

I have proposed improvements for future releases to enable the website to be able to create new posts directly to facebook, which he has promised to look at for future releases.

I love working with someone who understands my requirements and has the vision to improve the offerings and quality of their product.

This is an Excellent extension and so simple to administer and set - Don't wait, get this extension right now!

One of the Best .. but could be better

Posted on 07 April 2013
This is one of the Best Facebook Page Display Modules that I have come across, and believe me I've tried a few. It allows you to show all posts on your personal page and they can comment to the page from the Joomla Module (once logged into Facebook).

It could be better if it was able to do one more thing and thats to show all the comments that have been replied to the Posts that are displayed on the Page - At present it just shows the post has lets say 3 comments.

Find a way to do this and I would say it would be 6 stars.

I believe someone has asked the developer whether this could be achieved, but there are no updates in the forum to say whether this has/or even can be achieved. I can't post the forum link in this submission, but you can find it in the forum as "Can Comment responses also be shown in the Post"

Ignore the Rating 2.5 is impossible to Install

Posted on 13 October 2012
The review facility will not let you submit a comment without a rating - so sorry for that... but...

I am on Joomla 2.5 and i just can't suss a way to install this component. There is no Package for 2.5, only 1.5 - the 2.5 just has a load of files but no install log or doc to advise how to install it, or if to copy the files somewhere - to where.

Basically its a tease - I agree with the other reviews - there are no docs, FAQ's or install instructions for 2.5.. I would be happy to change the review after I had had a chance to look at the component but without paying to ask for help.. there is nothing we can do. Frustrated as on paper it looks good.. Oh well !
Owner's reply: JED requested to have both versions in the zip files (since we had this product for 1.5 too). This is why the zip was called "unzip_me_first". This is no longer an issue since we archived the Joomla 1.5 version and do no longer support it. Since you never used the extension I see no reason to rate it in any way...

Excellent Plugin for Kunena 1.7.2 - but it really is needed for 2.0.1

Posted on 12 August 2012
I have used this extension in line with the Kunena discuss plugin to add a "witty caption" element to my site which records the details posted to the discuss plugin in the forum, but prevents users editing it once it has been posted (I have found it difficult to find a discussion or comment product thats as good - but thats for another review for a different product) - Anyway. Viktor's plugin (WCK) works very well, is easy to use and configure and does exactly what it says it will.

I do still feel it is necessary to build a version for Kunena 2.0.1 as the features in the product don't give me what this plugin does in terms of control.

I am therefore disappointed that this will not be created for 2.0.1 and hope Viktor's mind can be changed.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review!

I have released Write Control for Kunena 2 for Kunena version 2.x.

Have success with the plugin.

Excellent Component - We need more please

Posted on 31 July 2012
This is a really great plugin - we have a bike racing website and Tracks is very good for this.

My only issue is that we could do with new versions coming out a little more frequently - interactions with the Eventlist Component would be great and there are definately new features that would make this even better, as there are some minor bugs in the extension.

Overall great

Great Product - NFR for a future release

Posted on 11 July 2012
This is a fantastic product and I recommend everyone to use this - its the best one I have found.

A couple of feature requests for a future release maybe

1) Display the directory where the files are located in the front end

2) Email someone when a file is uploaded/deleted.

3) pop link to show file from the listing, without having to download it to view it.

Please dont think I am complaining, I'm just thinking of further ways to make this simple to install / confirgure product even better.

Brilliant Plugin

Posted on 13 June 2012
This is a great Plugin - It does what it says on the tin. It is simple to configure and setup and makes it very easy to add to a module location.

I tried other "simple" file upload extensions, but this is by far the best I have used.

This is a very easy to use, yet powerful, upload file(s) module for Joomla. It can be as simple as just adding the directory to upload to, or you can chose to use any of the below listed functions.
