I used this to: Client sites and my sites. Thank you guys. Thank you
Owner's reply: Hi Justin:
Thank you for your review. There are no negative scores - it is just that free extensions get a 0/100 for the price so all free extensions get dinged.
Fixing this defect is on our checklist - but we have other Google Tag Manager fun project coming first.
All the Best - Jay

Great component, awful css and modules

Functionality

The core component does the job I need it to perfectly. Sadly it is let down by 2 incredibly poor modules from circa 2011

42
Ease of use

The core component is lovely. I have saved myself from the modules with a plugin call in a custom module. Very poor!

Support

When purchasing it takes 5 minutes or so to register making it look like the product hasn't been purchased. Unprofessional.

Documentation

Poor. VERY VERY poor

Value for money

Based off the component this is a 100. For the modules I feel like I need a refund.

I used this to: A client site for simple product and product category based testimonials. The component does this perfectly. This companies front-end presentation is dreadful and sloppy. Inline styles that I am busily hacking out. No override support either. Very poor indeed.

Very simple indeed. Does what it is meant to do gracefully.

Ease of use

Only complaint is the documentation on the timing. The developer himself has stated that he hasn't got this done properly. Check the forum

100
Support

Haven't needed it but the forum shows the developer as very active and supportive

Documentation

Pretty good for 2nd language! I would suggest that completing the timing documentation in English would make this 100%

I used this to: I operate a website for a business in Thailand. With the King dying all websites MUST have a pop-up/splash page honouring the King. Understandably I needed a QUICK fix and this did the job. Wish I hadn't wasted 20 minutes with 2 other extensions to get here!

Yes. It does what it is meant to do and is very broad. There is nearly every option I can think of and scope for development.

Ease of use

This is where the issue lies for me. "Logic". This is the issue. It would seem that their logic is very disparate from that of the users.

Support

You do feel that, sometimes, you are bothering them but it is likely that they are ensuring their developer network is lucrative.

Documentation

Not so good. There have been huge changes recently and the documentation does not reflect this. Time to update guys.

I used this to: In development for 2 e-commerce solutions. Despite my reservations I would recommend Hikashop. I have used the major competitor in the past and feel that if I am to comment on the "logic" issue here than I have to do the same for that one. Happy to be using it.

Why would you need it?

Sorry, I thought you wanted me to write the documentation. This sentence has just complicated things!

Tried another VERY well known solution, wasted a couple of hours before I requested a refund. Installed this and looked for things to do.

I used this to: Presently just one customer site but I will be retrospectively installing it on a LOT of other sites. Painfully simple.

Why didn't I try this earlier?

Awesome functionality for a FREE component. Better than I got with my "other" paid sub (which will be ending...much like their support).

RTFM! Once I did that everything was fine. You will need CSS skills if you want to use the free version in your style.

Brilliant. My fault for not reading it earlier.

I used this to: This time I was trialling it for a client site that needed a multi-stage form. I love the flexibility of the multi fieldsets and the styling options that provides. Based off this I will now be studying all my clients site for the simplicity of moving them all over.

It does what they claim it does. There's nothing fancy here but this is free.

Ease of use

This is where the problems lie for me. Errors in the admin section should not be fixed by editing server settings. Fix your component.

Support

I didn't use it but the search for my problem gave an answer that felt quite dismissive.

25
Documentation

Barely needed to use it. It didn't download through the admin component so had to download from their site. Problems as above.

Value for money
I used this to: I won't be using this. Problems as detailed should be dealt with by the developer. I'm aware this is free but their competition in the free market is far better. Maybe this is problem that has happened with php and Joomla upgrades but they should be aware of these.
Owner's reply: The error you are getting, is happens mostly, if you use wrong RSMonials version with wrong Joomla version. If you contact our support team they will surely help you to fix the issue.

I used this to: ALL my J!3 sites

The free version does a lot but with most modern sites pulling in js and css from other servers the PRO version is becoming a vital inclusion. I have used many, excellent, extensions for this task in the past. This is a mature, well supported product. BUY I

Once again the guys @ Offlajn have done it

I would love to give this 100% but that would mean perfection and nothing is perfect. However this tool comes MIGHTY close.

It is quite a complex tool but Offlajn give you EVERTHING you need including an "in component" help tool. Brilliant

I haven't had to use support on this tool yet. However I have contacted Offlajn before for other tools and they have been perfect.

I purchased the business version (i.e. the biggie) as I know that Offlajn are in this for the long term.

I used this to: My own sites and clients sites. A mixture of homepage presentations and sidebar presentations. It is perfect for all.
