Works great but you should spent the USD 8 for the pro version!

It is the highlight of my day. I've installed 18 modules this day, some working, some not, some with nice style but none of it realy satisfiying - even payed for it.

But this free version works out of the box and it even looks nice too.

Of course one could always do with some more parameters and those are the few bucks for the pro version worth it.

Exactly what I was looking for, works fine

This component saves a lot of time if you have pages where you always want to keep the same structure to your text. You just crate a page within the component including titels code etc. and leave text areas empty. Than save the page. You can also create as many different templates or some small texts which you use again and again.



Once you crate a new page after that you can choose your template or text snipped in your text editor and the work is done. Very, very useful. I installed in on two pages using Joomla 1.5.8 and 1.5.9.





I came across this tiny component when I went through the Recently Updates on this page. I installed Version 1.1 - it did not work.

As I am used to installing extensions in Joomla and its adventures (;-) I klicked first on the creators homepage and he had already changed the bug the same day!

I first got another small problem which I mentioned in his forum, the answer came promt and very friendly. It turned out that the problem was with me. Well done and well kept forum. Thanks!

Owner's reply: Thanks for your review.
Thanks also for the feedback you gave through the forum. It all helps a lot to make my extensions better.
Content Templater is still in beta, pretty new all, so probably some bugs here and there. If you come across any, please let me know.

An amazing component

I just installed phocagellery 2.1 beta - the newest version - and I think this is an amazing component and an amazing well done job. Concratulations!



I did not have to read any instructions, its just very well buildt and can be configured intuitively although the author provides a good help site.



I would also like to mention the very well done and superb clean layout. I personally think this to be a masterpiece.

Excellent in its technique but poor in its usage, sorry to say that

I used this component on very different pages with Joomla 1.5.2; 1.5.3; 1.5.4; 1.5.6; 1.5.7; and now 1.5.8. So there is quite some experience I do have with it.



But, although I do very much appreciate the tremendeous work Walter Cedric there are some questions about it, which in part go to the Joomla! team rather than to Walter.



First of all, why on earth does Joomla! not contain this component! Every time we get a new release of Joomla!, it is recommended for security reasons to upgrade. This means, I will have to get the new patches from Walters SecurityImages too (they are quite a lot).



Everytime I do this It is the same procedure.



1. Override the original files

2. Test it - it does not work properly (mostly because some of the uploads do not work etc.

3. Download the files again and override it again.

4. After I have done this three or four times, it starts to work. But mostly not everything. So I have to go through all the files to find the faults. As I mentioned, I have got some experience and I do get it run everytime. But as some of the other mention here, there is no real tutorial here. Maybe Watler could create one, which one could buy?

5. After that, you'll have to fine tune it and finally it works great! Thanks Walter!!!

6. The newer the versions of Security Images go, the more Ads and links are put into the admin. I highly agree that the creator should have hers or his links and some ads, but it is definately overdone here. Once again, sorry do say that.

But as you might see, its a lot of hassle everytime I do upgrade Joomla which always runs smooth and this is in fact very sad, because the component is a good thing which keeps away spammers efficiently.



Pleaset Joomla! team: Make Captcha a part of Joomla!
Owner's reply: Joomla 1.6 will have an event system, so basically it will be possible for plugin to register function on events: like onFormSubmit, beforeFormSubmit etc...

moreover Joomla! 1.6 will have captcha out of the box! I will try to contact the core developer to see if I can help in this area...be patient, it is coming!
