Value for money
I used this to: I have a site with tables listing staff members Without the plugin the table is wider than the template. Importantly the page did not pass the Google Mobile friendly test. "Not mobile-friendly" With the pliugin google says "Awesome! This page is mobile-friendly." Perfecto!!!

Functionality
Backup, restore, email backups and more

Ease of use
Just about as simple as can be. You make a backup of the database. Takes seconds. Easily restored.

I've used other extensions from Barnaby Dixon. His support has always been prompt and excellent.

Documentation
The documentation is brief and covers it all. But the extension is SO SIMPLE it doesn't need any documentation.

I used this to: I have been using phpmyadmin to make global changes in my database. Before I make ANY change I run DataSafe PRO. A couple times my global changes were wrong, and I simply restored the database back to what it was in seconds, using this component. ...Rowby

I used HexData to transfer articles and categories perfectly


Posted on 16 December 2014
100
Functionality
What I like about this particular extension is how simple it is to use. You export the data from one site, and import it to the other site. In my case I was only transferring articles and categories. I imported the Categories first, and then the Articles. And that was it.
100
Ease of use
For transferring articles and categories I found it extremely easy to use. I was crossing my fingers that the article ID's would match up with the Category ID's -- and after running the extension -- I took a look -- and the transfer was perfect. All the ID's matched. For SEO reasons It was essential that the original article IDs and category ID's be exactly the same.
100
Support
I had a issue with one of the settings for the Category import. I contacted support and they adjusted my settings and got it working correctly. Support is one of the most important "features" of any Joomla extension -- and WDMtech Support is superb.
100
Documentation
The component is pretty straight forward, and intuitive. Their documentation covers all of the features. And they have an active forum with feedback from the developers.
100
Value for money
You can use this extension for multiple websites. And the cost is low. It certainly saved me hours of time and headaches.
I used this to: I work on multiple websites for a major California university. I used this to transfer articles and categories for two Joomla sites so far. And will be using it on another university site shortly. I am happy with this extension. ...Rowby

Nothing else does this

With this simple but amazing extension you can export individual articles or categories of articles from one site and then import them into another site, retaining article ID's if desired.



It does more things, but that's what I used it for. In my case, I imported articles from two different Joomla sites into a new site.



Even though the component is free there is support. I was confused about something and within hours the developer clarified what I needed to do in my case.



Needless to say I clicked on his paypal donation button and was happy to give him a donation -- for such a time saver. Without this component I would have spent countless hours -- and it took care of it all in minutes.

Works where others have not worked


Posted on 14 October 2014
I haven't had much luck with video players with responsive Joomla sites. They would either not resize properly or would not play properly on mobile (especially cell) devices.



This module works across all types -- desktop, tablet and cell. Android and Iphone.



Equally important is their prompt and expert support. On one of my sites there was a misbehaving plugin which was conflicting with the player. The player was fine, but the programming on the other 3rd party plugin was flawed. They went in and fixed the other party's plugin and resolved the issue quickly.



I'll be using this module for all of my sites going forward.



Thanks ...Rowby

It's an eye-opener


Posted on 23 May 2014
I happily discovered this extension and have enabled it on two different client's site, earning their applause as if I was a genius. :)



The photo display is stunning.



BTW the demo on the demo site at demo.minitek.gr/ site takes some time to load, but that is only the way their demo system is set up. The actual extension loads right away.



The developer helped me with some modifications I needed to make. And stuck with me as I went back and forth in the forum. A quality extension, and prompt and friendly and expert support. That is something I value!

I'm ashamed of myself!


Posted on 30 April 2014
I can't believe I've used this great little plugin all these years and never gave it the great review it deserves.



I install this in all my joomla sites. It keeps me, as SuperAdministrator logged in and keeps me from being kicked out.



This lets me set a low session time in Joomla's control panel, which is what we want for site security.



Before I had this plug in I would set my sessions for much too long a time.



This fixes all of that.



Thanks for this gem!

A lifesaver and worth it


Posted on 11 April 2014
This is a really good extension. A lot easier than trying to do 301 redirects via an htaccess file. In an htaccess file if you make a mistake you could end up with an internal error.

With ReDJ you won’t have to know anything about htaccess or other programming tricks to redirect a page.

First of all you're making your changes via a user friendly admin panel rather than editing the htaccess file in notepad – which if you make a mistake the results can take your site down.

ALSO for those who use Godaddy hosting where the htaccess file is not always updated immediately (Godaddy's updates to htaccess file can take up to an hour) the changes in ReDJ take place instantly. The changes made in ReDJ are not written to the htacces file.

Also you can publish and unpublish your redirects which can be handy.

A great extension that I know you will like.

Works great and has plenty of options


Posted on 25 November 2013
I was looking for a way to change my background images in a random order. I tried a few others, but had various issues, including control bars showing in Internet Explorer, etc. I was already using JUX Slideshow and liked that product as well as their personal support.



Basically it does what it says. It can show the background image in various ways, for example stretching it if necessary, etc etc.



My client likes it and works nicely.



After I installed it I made a suggestion regarding random image capability. Within a day or so they added that feature to the module.



I recommend JUX Background Slideshow.
