Makes SEO score 7% worse

Functionality
When I first used it, it seem great. Later I noticed that front-end modules loading and SEO slowed by 7%. Removed it and score is higher

Ease of use
Yes, it's very easy to install and use. However, uninstalling requires some effort. There are SEVERAL plug ins and then the components.

Owner's reply: Hi Web Dude, I hope my reply will encourage you to rethink, assure you of our support and perhaps you may even consider revising this review.

FUNCTIONALITY
With regards to the SEO the editing state is only active when you are logged in on your Joomla website and have the editing permissions to edit. With adding any new functionality there will of course be a memory footprint but as the inline editing is only there when you are logged in as an editor, and isn’t presented when your website is in its normal state, it shouldn’t have any SEO impact. If you somehow tested this in an editing state, then you could have received a false positive. If this wasn't the case, then please contact us and we will be happy to look into it for you.

EASE OF USE
Our editor is plugin based which allows for user permissions to be set in this way. It allows greater flexibility in keeping with Joomla’s logic, but you shouldn’t try to uninstall the editor on a plugin by plugin bases. Nowadays Joomla’s installer supports ‘Packages’. All you need do is to select the Ark Editor package & it will uninstall it for you in one go, please see our documentation on this: http://tiny.cc/wvx5hy

Many thanks, Paul F

I failed to fully research other migration tools but I think that saving me HOURS in trying the others is far better. I got the PLUS too!
I used this to: My own website and many others to migrate to J3. I am seriously impressed by the developer's skills and look forward to my PLUS subscription being used when Joomla requires future migrations.

Love the new installation video


Posted on 11 November 2013
I tried several months ago, and as I am a one man shop I had to postpone trying for a while. It was important to LOGOUT of my personal Google account to make everything work properly and once I did that, and clear my browser cache, things seemed to install better. One point -- uninstall the module if you have it loaded already. Made all the difference.



Once that was done (above), I was thrilled to see readable data right in front of me on my one web admin page.



Thanks Deconf!!

Awesome little app


Posted on 11 November 2013
I wish I had implemented on my own site (and shall later). I wanted something less generic for my volunteer site and this app takes care of it!



There are so few options in this category and how nice that the one that stands out is FREE!



Thanks developer!

Thanks for saving me from another gray hair


Posted on 09 November 2013
I wasted 16 hours on a different product and happened upon iCagenda by chance, whereas I missed it before my 16 hour ordeal.



Out of the box the free app is incredible and just SO EASY to use.



THANK YOU!
Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your review!
And working every day to make iCagenda more and more easy. And users feedback is very helpful! ;-)

Every release comes with a few bugs


Posted on 18 January 2013
I built a site using the business edition but it lacked a FREE shipping coupon so I was instructed to buy AWOCoupon and that seemed to work. Overall, I got the impression that the site was a mishmash of code from different programmers held loosely together by old telephone string -- formerly used to connect two tin cans.



It did do very well in the Zone arena, where you may not be able to ship a certain product to just 3 of the 50 states but it was quite slow and cumbersome with the variations a product may have.



Nicolas does do a good job at answering questions on the forum but the forum is a hodgepodge of answers that need to be linked or categorized better. It's bad enough that the forum search is limited to 20 characters. I've never seen a search string limitation so harsh.



As I have tried 4 carts so far, this is not the one that is so open that you can just install and see results as you built. It requires patience. If you have it, this extension is for you.
Owner's reply: Hi,

Thank yo for your comment.

The forum categorization is indeed unpractical since it was firstly made two years ago when we launched and that we now have more than 80000 posts on it. I agree that it would be great to redo the categorization at some point. It's on our todo list, along with a new website for 2013.

The search of the forum allows for more than 20 characters.
Here is an example:
http://www.hikashop.com/en/forum/search.html?q=hikashop+extension+great+joomla&childforums=1

Concerning the speed of setting up a web shop with HikaShop, I must say that it can greatly vary based on what you want to do. We have a beginner tutorial on our documentation which allows you to sell your first product in less than 10 minutes. But if you want to personalize everything, it can indeed take a lot of time, especially if it's your first use.

Best regards,
Nicolas

Great for simple access and reporting


Posted on 30 December 2012
There is another product I use that is more robust than MijoSQL but what I love about Mijo is that you don't have to manually input your database credentials all of the time AND it works with the current safeguards you have in place in your .htaccess, or when using with AdminTools.



It is FAST and great and I am happy to include it in all of my sites! Thanks Mijo!
