Awesome CCK based on com_content


Posted on 16 May 2017

Functionality
Great CCK, based on com_content so future proof. Looking forward to integrate with J3.7 fields.
Live update not working for 5.5.1->5.5.2

Ease of use
Very easy to use, as well as build templating for each content type. Of course it has a learning curve as it is complex

I used this to: Show the latest and related articles, both on com_content and other pages
Aiming to reduce my bounce rate and increase the time new visitors visit my site.
Note that if you use images it will slightly slow down site due to images. Thumbnails are large according to page insights
Owner's reply: Thank you for the review! I appreciate it.
Thumbnail sizes can be tweaked by using the picture quality parameters.
The heavier the original images, the heavier the thumbnails. If originals are light in weight, thumbnails tend to be lighter also.
Available soon: additional free plugins that will drastically reduce the image sizes by using external services available on the Internet.

Good extensions for modification of lists and articles

Functionality
Freedom to alter the look of your site, requires CSS overrides for some templates.
Hopefully will be integrated with fields (Joomla 3.7)

Ease of use
If you know CSS, very easy to use - might play nice with some templates without need to know CSS

I used this to: Article layout modification.
Easy and fast addition of social share buttons.
Owner's reply: Thank you very much for the review!
CSS tweaks are almost inevitable, although some templates do not require any changes.
Joomla 3.7 custom fields are supported in the pro version at the moment.

Working fine, migration buggy


Posted on 25 October 2013
Migrated from J1.5 / Joomdoc 2 to J2.5 / Joomdoc 4.

While the migration was buggy, and I had to go and fix manually in the mysql tables - overall once the migration completed it works okay.

Version 4.0 is much better than previous 3.x

Recommended extension, great support


Posted on 09 October 2013
Looked for an extension to add author box, which is supported by both J2.5 and J3.

Author list does the job, and has excellent support - wanted an extra feature, and author added it to the extension right away!
