Amazing multifaceted CCK and more


Posted on 16 March 2015

Functionality
Start with the basic CCK (formulate content templates) but can go much farther with fields, forms, and article data sets interacting.

Ease of use
It takes a while to get up to speed on how everything is put together. More examples would help.

Support
Forums answered questions and showed advanced configurations.Solid, mostly friendly community. Posted a bug but no response (I did solve).

Documentation
Some of the documentation isn't always complete or up-to-date with the latest versions
-1
Value for money
I used this to: I've used this for displaying available properties on a property management site and a home builder's site to display communities, floor plans, and homes for sale with interaction between the three. I each case, I'm been impressed with Seblod capabilities .

Backup / Restore is Multi-Site Dev's Dream


Posted on 18 April 2014
We manage multiple sites and wanted something that allowed better multi-site licensing management of forms than what we had.



We tried a few others, but this ability to backup and restore allows us to create a basic form and instantly install/setup for each site within minutes. That alone is a huge time saver.



When I had questions, I quickly found the answers by searching the documentation or the forum (without having to login - thank you).



I will be transitioning most of our sites over to this and already done several without issue. I doubt users will even noticed anything changed.



I do wish we could use the system-wide ReCAPTCHA or SecureImage plugins vs. it own plugins but that is pretty minor. That would just allow for a more consistent user experience and management.



One feature I would to see eventually is in the GUI layout control. It would be nice to mix in two column without going to the manual customization.

Easy to Use, Flexible & Great Support


Posted on 30 September 2013
This is one of easiest to use and configure to use for just basic users that only manage content.



It has a lots of various slider configurations and individual slide layout of options. It works well with the responsive and mobile designs I worked with so far too.



Support wise, they are on the ball. I found a bug due to a conflict with another extension. Within 2 e-mails, I had a fix.



I like that they give you an option for a lifetime purchase for both Joomla and WordPress and with unlimited domains.

Great for where you cannot hide the admin URL


Posted on 27 July 2013
Other extensions typically just change the URL, which is fine but not enough for me.



I like bfstop for my sites where I didn't want to change URL because re-training users wasn't worth the pain.



The ability to tune the notification frequency and when an IP is blocked is great.



I like that he warns you also if you have your super admin set to "admin" and the newer additions of the administration component to view which IPs are block and the usernames they tried.



For straight up brute force protection, this is best extension out there.

Solid, easy to setup, just one tweek but needs better support


Posted on 06 June 2012
Very affordable but solid. Great license for multiple sites & developers.



Easy to setup, and pretty configurable via the web administration.



I found lacking the inability to adjust the time/speed of the slides. I had to crack open a PHP file to adjust that. The default 2.5 seconds was just too short. 3 to 3.5 is more ideal I think.



It wouldn't hurt to add WYSIWYG editor capability to the individual slide text boxes. I can hand code HTML into it, but that isn't great for my clients that don't know HTML code.



Lastly, I think adding the ability to more easily customize the CSS/look & feel of the slide shows colors via the web administration should be the next major feature added. That's pretty common among the other major sliders out there.



Documentation was mostly video but it is so simple that text might be overkill but still would be nice.



The developer directs you to the forum for support. However it doesn't look like he is answering questions. Long term that will be an issue and always puts doubt on the longevity of a project's viability.



Otherwise, a very good start.
