Quix

Excellent Support, Awesome Page Builder

Posted on 09 October 2017
Functionality

There is so much one can do with Quix, it is truly amazing. Their "drag and drop" method of building web pages will become the new standard.

Ease of use

Very easy to use. At first, it looks intimidating. But then, they post videos on how to use Quix, and you realize endless possibilities.

Support

Excellent... ticket and "real time" in chat. Had a change I wanted to make to the design of a template and it was solved in one session.

Documentation

Also excellent... each template has a manual, and there are lots of "how to" videos on their site.

I used this to: Website clients... so much better than trying to custom code, due to Quix.

Membership Pro

Membership Pro Made My Idea Possible

Posted on 23 September 2014

My aim was to set up an art competition and I needed a good membership extension for my artist registration system. I tried a few on my test site, and decided on Membership Pro because it was much more straightforward to use. This was back in May 2014. I now have approximately 150 registered members and I am very happy with the extension. It even allows me to run promotions where I offer a discount coupon for registrations that occur during set time periods. There were a few minor glitches found along the way (like the country of a member not displaying in the admin) but those were solved with an upgrade to the extension. Tuan and his team are super helpful and fast if you have a question or a problem. The other thing about this extension is that it is very secure... we have people who try to register without paying all the time, but they are stopped consistently. All in all, this extension made my plan possible because I could do it by myself (I'm not a programmer, only a web designer) and now we have a great art competition underway, thanks to the ease and functionality of Membership Pro.


My ShortList

My Shortlist Is Excellent

Posted on 20 June 2014

This extension works perfectly. It's really easy to make a clickable list of favorite articles. I'm using K2 and it works beautifully. But the coolest thing is that the user can send themselves an email with their list of favorite items. These items are all clickable links in email and take you right to the correct page online. (In my situation, I had to set Use Absolute Link and Automatically Append Menu Itemid settings to YES in URL Parameters). I got fast help from the developer, so that's how I know this! I am running an online art competition, and now, thanks to the email sending feature, the monthly judges will be able to select their favorite paintings and send the results to themselves and to me. Since we may end up with thousands of paintings, this is a must-have extension for us!


SEOFLI - SEO Friendly Links and Images

SEO Friendly Links and Images - an important part of my SEO strategy

Posted on 15 December 2012

I have a large tourism website and use a lot of essential Joomla components. Unfortunately, many of these components do not consider the importance of adding the width and height attributes to images; also, they don't always include the "alt" tag, which is very important to users and search engines. This plugin ensures that ALL my images have width and height attributes and it adds intelligent alt tags if any are missing. The great thing is, it doesn't overwrite existing alt tags, and works across my entire site. I have a test site, a duplicate of my main site, and I installed the plugin on both, but disabled it on one of the sites and compared the code. I was amazed at the difference! Proper search engine optimization is extremely important to the success of my website, so I would not be without this plugin!

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your review!

EFSEO - Easy Frontend SEO

Easy Frontend SEO Saved the Day!

Posted on 15 December 2012

I have a large tourism website that uses many Joomla components, some of which do not have flexibility when it comes to making the metatag data separate from the front-end display. This plugin saved the day with respect to totally solving that problem. Good search engine optimization is critical to the success of my site, so having the ability to update the complete set of metatags quickly is a huge plus! I love Easy Frontend SEO and also use this developer's other excellent SEO product, SEO Friendly Links and Images.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your kind words. Have success with EFSEO!

SobiPro

SobiPro Made It Possible

Posted on 08 December 2012

I don't know what I would have done if it were not for SobiPro. In my view, there is no other Joomla directory system that even comes close. I needed to remake a large directory website that had been online since 2002. SobiPro was much more than the answer to my problem. As one reviewer mentioned, it is a great directory system, but it's usefulness goes well beyond that due to the way it's built, allowing for endless variations. There really are so many possibilities, even for non-programmers (like myself!). The support is incredible; the product itself allowed me to customize in a way that improved the look (and functionality) of my new directory site well beyond what I had originally envisioned. It's organized very well in the administrative view too. I am extremely happy with SobiPro and highly recommend it to anyone who needs a directory for their Joomla system. (And, oh, I forgot to mention... it's lightning fast on the front end when certain settings are in place.)


CKEditor

I Love CK Editor!

Posted on 29 November 2012

I had been using CK Editor since before it was called CK editor. I recently needed to redo a huge website and thought I'd try a new, highly rated editor, so I installed another of the popular Joomla editors. I tried that for a few days, and even paid for an extension to make it do what I always got CK Editor to do for free. Well, I came away disappointed, and am happily back to using CK Editor. Yes, it's a bit more trouble to install CK Finder (once), but once done, my time spent editing is actually MUCH faster than with the other editors. Some things I love about CK Editor:



I can swith between code view and design view while the editor is still fully maximized... a big time saver.



I can drag multiple images from my desktop right in to the ck finder window, into the folder I choose.



I found it a lot easier to make the editor css style view match my front end website view and css style.



It is a breeze to make custom templates.



So for anyone who has a negative experience with this great editor, there must be something they have done incorrectly. Plus, it's a totally free extension for Joomla.


ReDJ

Love this extension! Saves lots of time.

Posted on 24 November 2012

I love ReDJ! It does just what it says it does and is a huge timesaver. I needed to make a ton of redirects fast and this product works great for this purpose. It's also perfect for quickly making custom 404 pages.

ReDJ allows to manage URL redirection (useful for creating URL aliases, and managing redirection from old to new URLs). No more error 404 (page not found). Managing associations from old to new URLs, all links to old pages will be redirected to new ones. Create an URL alias by now is so simple, just create new item and add both alias and real destination URL. Enjoy!

My ShortList is a very smart and quick extension to allow your visitors, a favourite links list, with quick access to them. My ShortList is ideal for websites featuring a number of products, article series, advertisements, events or newsletters, from which a visitor would like to add to their favourites! Give your visitors the choice not to "add to cart", but to a wishlist, from which of course they have one click access to all the pages you want them to visit again and again. My ShortList is great for its simplicity. It uses cookies to store the favourite articles, in the user's browser, and the database for logged-in users, and it works out of the box!

Also note that some components may have changed their structure in Joomla 3. Please notify me and I will make MyShortlist compatible with those versions, too. My ShortList can be used more than once in a site, to produce as many "shortlists" as you want! (Example: Things I bought, Things I want etc)
