Easily the best directory extension


Posted on 03 May 2019
100
Functionality
Over the last few years, I have tried (and paid for) a number of Joomla directory extensions but this is the best by some margin.
100
Ease of use
I find it quite simple to use, even though it's a very powerful extension. It's intuitive and templating is very straightforward.
100
Support
Exceptional. The developer is not judgmental and treats simple inquiries and complex questions with equal respect. Replies in minutes !!!
100
Documentation
There's a lot of documentation, an active user forum (where the developer is present) and also video tutorials.
100
Value for money
It's not cheap but as a long term investment, represents excellent value for money.
I used this to: JReviews for the last few years has powered my directory of cricket related activities in the UK. I am also going to use it in future products

Excellent social media connection extension


Posted on 28 March 2016
100
Functionality
I tried a few before this one but this is the best (not looked elsewhere since). Works with 3rd party Joomla software like JomSocial and CB.
100
Ease of use
Difficult to assess as I find the whole area of social login and integration is a bit tricky to get my head around.
100
Support
Excellent. The developer always replies within minutes or hours with very thorough answers.
85
Documentation
I feel the documentation could be a lot deeper given how powerful this extension actually is. There is a good introduction video though.
100
Value for money
Absolute bargain. Other similar products maybe cheaper but some are absolute rubbish and you'll probably end up buying this anyhow.
I used this to: I now use this product exclusively for delivering social login functionality on the websites I work on. Initially I didn't realise how easy it was to template this product to fit existing websites so they are being retrofitted too.

Free basic search module with free extension plugins too !!


Posted on 12 February 2016
100
Functionality
Somewhat limited as the search does not include extra fields or tags. However it is FREE and what is does, it does very well.
75
Ease of use
Very easy to set-up
100
Support
I have not called upon their services.
100
Documentation
I didn't require any documentation. It installs and works just like any other extension.
-1
Value for money
I used this to: I don't actually use it as unfortunately it doesn't work with K2 tags or extra fields. However I still think it is good extension for those who don't require this functionality and best of all, it's free.

Must have plugin if you use Maximenu


Posted on 12 February 2016
100
Functionality
It does exactly what I require. A nice neat menu so mobile users can quickly navigate the websites I design.
100
Ease of use
In last few months I feel there has been lot of effort put in to make configuring Maximenu and this module much easier. Now really simple.
100
Support
Not sure he has much of a social life as he even replies to emails late on a Saturday night?
100
Documentation
Enough on the website to definitely get you started. However I have now used his tools for a few years now so perhaps easier for me?
100
Value for money
A few euros for this is great value.
I used this to: I wanted my websites navigable on small screen android mobiles and this really delivers. I now use quite a lot of this developer's externsions and tools because he seems to "get" what developers actually want.

Great way to make K2 entries more useful.


Posted on 11 February 2016
100
Functionality
Works well and loads relatively fast on a page.
100
Ease of use
Yes, even an idiot like got it working without having to trouble the developers.
100
Support
Never called upon their services but there is a forum to check out if you have any issues.
100
Documentation
Initially I didn't realise that the plug-in creates it's own address, latitude and longitude fields which took me 10 minutes to figure out.
100
Value for money
Yes good value for money as you can use on all your websites.
I used this to: For showing positions of various business listed on website.

Not compatible with SobiPro 1.2 onwards


Posted on 24 January 2016
50
Functionality
It uses jquery UI but since this has removed from SobiPro 1.2 onwards, it will not work out of the box.
20
Ease of use
Fairly difficult to understand given the lack of clear documentation.
20
Documentation
A very poor level of documentation.
30
Value for money
It is cheap and would be great value if worked properly.
I used this to: I tried to use this to set-up a conditional field but have not managed to get it working.

I install this on every website


Posted on 16 January 2016
100
Functionality
Functionality, there is very little this menu can't do.
100
Ease of use
You can get up and running quickly. There is also a parameters plugin available to purchase which can really take you to the next level.
100
Support
The developer answers questions quickly whether directly on the support forum.
100
Documentation
The developer has written a full manual which you can buy from his website. There are some videos which are very good.
-1
Value for money
I used this to: I now install as standard on every Joomla website I build. The developer also has another great tool called TemplateCreatorCK which is also worth checking out.
Owner's reply: Hi,
Thank you for your great review :)

A good option for anyone considering a directory style website


Posted on 16 January 2016
90
Functionality
I would like same functionality as Sobi2 import/export plugin but with the additional extensions (by joining their club), it does the job.
90
Ease of use
The templating system uses XLST (which I knew nothing about) but the backend interface is very user friendly and easy to navigate.
80
Support
Only available to club members and replies are generally good.
100
Documentation
Club members get access to a lot of information.
-1
Value for money
I used this to: Chose SobiPro as I am developing a website that will be primarilly a free directory of links. I have tried a number of Joomla directory extensions and I think SobiPro along their Silver 4 month membership represents good value for money.

Still extremely useful

Functionality
Great
100
Ease of use
Very simple
100
Documentation
Never required any documentation. Just installed as any other Joomla component, added menu item and switched off Show Page Heading.
-1
Value for money
I used this to: I required a menu item that did virtually nothing and this component worked perfectly. Instead of component output, my page needed to display 4 modules to emulate a K2 style blog layout (Leading, Primary, Secondary and Links) and now I am very happy.
