Good partial solution (only sends alerts if the account exists)

Functionality
Sends email(s) if account login fails - but not if the user has misspelt their account name as only works for recognized account names.

Ease of use
Easy - no problem identifying options.

Documentation
Simple extension, but necessary documentation is mostly present.

Incompatible with front-end editing. Fine if you only need back-end editing.

Avoid if you need front-end editing - SWMenu generates a JavaScript error that stops the page saving.

Very easy and flexible. Shame about the unresolved bug.

Non existent. I spent an evening tracing and documenting the bug, and received no reply after 4 weeks. Forum posts are also unanswered.

I used this to: Used OK on a site until I needed to grant front-end editing to other uses. Due to unresolved bug, now migrating to another extension. Avoid SWMenu Free if you may find yourself in a similar situation. If you're confident you'll be the only editor, you'll find it a good choice.

Install, activate - and it works. What could be simpler?

Scarcely any need for documentation - but it's available if you need it.

Functionality
Delivers what it promises, and does it well. If you want to display database content on your site, this should be top of your list.

Ease of use
If you understand the basics of databases, SQL and CSS, then this extension is mostly easy to use. If you don't, you will struggle with it.

Support
For this version, support is via the forum only. Search it to answer many queries, but don't expect rapid responses to new posts.

Documentation
Essential information is provided, but a technical understanding of what you're doing is assumed, and you may need to search the forum

I used this to: I've used this extension for several years to display database information; for those with the technical knowledge to understand how to use it, it's highly recommended.
