QR Code Elite

Good and free

Posted on 04 June 2015
Functionality

Does what it should. simple.

Ease of use

Easy as can be

Support

Not needed

Documentation

Fine.. not really needed.

I used this to: Placing QR codes on web pages. Works fine. More formating options of and around the QR code would be nice but not a biggie.

Developer Add-on for SEBLOD

Great idea.. Hope this generates more user/developer momentum for Seblod

Posted on 15 February 2014

I am making just a general statement about this extension: Seblod is a great application development environment for Joomla. However, it lacks much in documentation, external developers and forums support. Seblod can do a lot more than extend content - it can be used as an applications development environment.



This apps packaging extension hopefully will lead to some of the great developers using it to contribute new content modules and applications to give Seblod higher visibility and momentum.


hs_users

Among the best and clean - no call backs

Posted on 11 September 2013

I have tried several social login module/components and this now ranks as among the best.



A problem with all of these is the social sites have increased and are not stable. This makes it a headache for component suppliers to keep up and satisfy Joomla! users. Many developers seek to make a business from supplying social login and reporting tools. This pushes them to proprietary link backs which is led to some being barred from Joomla!.



HS users package provides a clean set of tools for user registration and login. The documentation is basic and I have found some tweaking of call back URLs was necessary. The overall result is that it works without links to the developer. I haven't used it yet, however it's possible to embed the social login using a few lines of PHP code as described the developer site. That feature can probably prove to be very useful to many Joomla! users.



The documentation can use improvement but otherwise I recommend this package be among the first, if not the first to consider for social registration and login.


CloudFlare

Cannot recommend: drops, offline, apparent conflicts

Posted on 30 August 2013

I tried Cloudflare, first as a free offering from the shared host Hostmonster and, when that seemed to cause problems, as a direct subscriber to the service. Problems came up in when working in the Joomla administrator. Turning off the service using the Cloudflare control panel seemed to take considerable time for their network to flush their caches. The more troubling problem was offline pages refresh mismatches.



I can't say that my explanation of what was causing the problems is accurate.. I did not waste time trying to figure it out as I just dropped the service and shifted to use of Google CDN which just works.

Great site performance extension

Posted on 01 June 2013

I tried others and they broke page loads and did not provide the degree of control needed to troubleshoot and get around them. JBETOLO has controls and tweaks for almost anything that can speed up a website.



The development group supporting it also appears very active so that bugs and improvements are being pursued. I think that is important because Joomla, script libraries, and the cloud CDN services are rapidly evolving.



One bummer: After spending time doing tweaks to my apache server, a single-click in this extension modified the .htaccess file that I had spent ~30 minutes searching, reading, and patching configuration files on the server!



This extension is the Swiss Army Knife of speed tweaks for Joomla.



For me, this is the best site performance tool, easily five stars.


Joooid

A much needed addition to Joomla in order to becmoe a mobile capable platform

Posted on 08 April 2013

Most limitations stem from this being a mobile device application. I am using an Android 4.0 smartphone with a 5.3" screen. The input using the touch-screen is OK but is limited by my slow keyboard skills on mobile devices. Can't blame Joooid for that. I would expect improvement in typing using a touch screen tablet.



Using Google voice recognition input speed up entry quite a bit. Recognition is almost as good as a desktop app. It is more awkward to make corrections, however, that is the limitation of the device not Jooid.



I took a couple of test pictures: when submitting/uploading the articles I got a server error message. However, the articles did upload and the picture looked good... again that is device dependent.



This module/plugin works well for free.. If I find that I make use of it, I will be glad to pay for the pro version.

Nice features, easy and CSS customization to boot.

Posted on 20 February 2013

An excellent TAG module that combines most wanted features and a few extras such as Wikipedia definitions look-up. I found the built-in CSS edit feature to be both a problem solver for a conflict and a way to extend/modify the visuals.


Pages-and-Items

Excellent extension; compact and easy

Posted on 15 January 2013

An excellent component that works well with other modules and does not impose a structure or changes to core Joomla! files or custom tags, etc. that are a mess with some content components and, thus to be avoided imo.



Pages and Items is a component that should be installed even if you run a fairly static website... just occasional use will make it worthwhile. On the otherhand, if you are doing an upgrade of Joomla, importing content, a major reorganization/reclassification of content, checking for broken/changed internal or external links, this component should be of great help.


ITP Social Buttons

Works well among he best

Posted on 21 April 2012

This has several button choices which allowed me to use it where others would not look good. Also, it just works which is better than I can say for a couple of other free social share modules I tried.

Simple and effective for article and page QR-Codes

Posted on 10 April 2012

I would give it five stars except that it is limited in functionality from what I am looking for.



The module provides, basic, clean looking QR codes for page/article URLs. It allows for opting out of author URL link... thanks!

Chameleon changes the way your site looks and acts under different conditions. It's like a multi-site extension, except your site can respond to much more than just domains… e.g. - use different template for mobile/tablet devices. - create sophisticated web personalization: change branding/menus on your site for visitors coming from an affiliate or from a different country (GeoIP). - restrict access to certain resources on your site for visitors matching certain criteria You simply set up "conditions" to be detected, plus the "actions" to be performed when the conditions are met. Chameleon does the rest! Chameleon detects: ★ Browser (IE v6, FF, iPhone, iPad, tablet, mobile etc; using Categorizr for smart detection) ★ Browser language ★ Date, time, time of day ★ Page type (article, category, front page etc) ★ Virtuemart page types, products, cart contents, categories, coupons & shopper groups ★ Flexicontent page types, categories & specific items ★ Hikashop page types, categories & specific items ★ K2 page types, categories, authors & more ★ User id and group, logged-in & logged-out users ★ Article id, section, category & tags (J3.x) ★ Component ★ Site domain/sub-domain ★ Page URL & referrer ★ Random probability ★ GeoIP detection of the guest’s city/country ★ All "children" of a given menu or menu item ★ Anything else you can detect with a snippet of PHP. After it detects any of these, Chameleon can perform any of these dynamic "actions" on the current page: ★ set the template/style ★ add the current user to any group, on-the-fly ★ unpublish/rename menu items ★ unpublish plugins ★ switch the "default" Joomla page (site home page) ★ switch which menu item will be highlighted as "Active" ★ internal or external redirection ★ dynamic find-&-replace text/HTML on the page ★ set metadata, page title, and add JS/CSS ★ set page language ★ dynamically switch VirtueMart shopper group (& pricing structure), set currency, toggle catalog mode & price display ★ run PHP code More examples: ★ Use a different template and change some menu items depending on which "group" the user is in ★ Switch off comments plugin for a certain content category ★ Use a different template just for IE users ★ Use a different template if your site is embedded in FaceBook ★ Do A/B testing of 2 different templates, chosen randomly. Use different Google Analytics on each template, then compare the performance. ★ Use different templates for site.fr & site.de ★ Set up different pricing structures using VirtueMart shopper groups, then switch shopper groups based on domain name, language, time of day or country of origin ★ Timed styles, templates, menu items, and more CHANGELOG See http://www.metamodpro.com/chameleon/mtp-release-notes Recent highlights include: v2.65 (Nov '17) - confirmed Joomla 3.8 compatibility - improved compatibility with Falang v2.64 (Jan '17) - confirmed Joomla 3.7 compatibility - added detection of VM shopper groups v2.63 (Oct '16) - added IPv6 support for GeoIP detection v2.61 (Aug '16) - multiple compatibility improvements including J3.6.2 – see release notes v2.59 (Jun '16) - new: ability to add/remove current user to user groups - new: VM actions: set currency, toggle catalog mode, toggle price display v2.49 (Jul '15) - detect and/or unpublish menu items by "note" - even more flexible find & replace using global & session variables v2.44 (Sep '14) - new: Find & Replace action - new: substitutions for use in page redirections - new: detect subcategories v2.38-2.43 (Aug '14) - Support for Falang (+ more) - article & category tag detection - IE9 and IE10 detection - choose redirect code (301, 302, 303, 307) for precise SEO control
