Posted on 29 April 2019

Functionality
If you want to embed a PDF so it appears on the page without clicking a link, this is for you. Very simple to setup.

Ease of use
Very simple setup, watch the Youtube video. Experiment with width / length, I use 800x800 px.

Support
Unnecessary. Doesn't use Joomla updater is the negative. I didn't need support.

Documentation
Watch the Youtube video. I don't know if there is documentation, but you won't need it.

I used this to: Embedding a PDF so it appears on a page, not just a link. I've been looking for something like this.

Saves a lot of time

Push out a new favicon after Joomla upgrades wipe them out
100
Ease of use
Very easy. Update the favicon in less than 30 seconds, then refresh the site page.

Support
Not needed.

Documentation
Not needed.

I used this to: With every upgrade, Joomla will blow your existing favicon away and there seems to be no way to prevent that. This component will let you go in each time, recreate the favicon and it's installed and ready to go. The program performs the initial favicon conversion itself. Super!

Used Sourcerer to query a SQL database

Functionality
I wrapped a SQL query inside a PHP script and it worked great.
100
Ease of use
Requires a moderate amount of learning and study if you don't already know something about PHP and how queries work.
100
Support
Excellent. Had one syntax problem, and was helped quickly to isolate and fix.
100
Documentation
Very good, but still had to dig into Joomla database documentation. Be ready to devote some time.

Value for money
I used this to: Query a database, then display the results inside a Modals window. Modals are another package from Regular Labs. This makes the content of the MySQL database dynamically available for viewing by the user.

Vital to the health of your website

Functionality
The functionality seems to be excellent.
95
Ease of use
It's fairly easy to use. It performs many different tasks, so navigating through the menus is challenging at first.
100
Support
Excellent. I've gotten very quick responses, given the time difference.
100
Documentation
There are a few places where the documentation zig-zags, and where the program has changed. I've read it 100% which is required.
100
Value for money
Fully worth every euro.
I used this to: Protecting my website, and will be protecting others in the future. I could never hack my way through the unspecific recommendations given in the security section of the Joomla website and develop a specific plan. Admin Tools is the security plan you need.
