Akeeba Release System

Best tool for the job

Posted on 18 June 2015
Functionality

Akeeba ARS does exactly what it's supposed to do. It's made it incredibly easy to maintain our extensions and control the downloads.

Ease of use

Very easy to use, even if you don't read the documentation.

Support

Support was excellent. Ran into a problem with update streams and Nicolas had it worked out quickly.

Documentation

Documentation is excellent. Step by step instructions for everything.

I used this to: We use ARS to distribute the extensions we have in the JED. Thousands of trouble free downloads.

Advanced Twitter Embedded Tweets

Be careful before you install

Posted on 15 January 2015
Functionality

Does exactly what they say, very easy to use. HOWEVER, it also embeds a hidden link to a spammy prescription site with each tweet. Not cool!

Ease of use

Very easy to use once you remove the spam link.

Support

Support was not required, it is very easy to use.

Documentation

Documentation is very good and easy to understand


jQuery Easy

The name says it all

Posted on 17 September 2013

This plugin is named appropriately. Most of the time you just need to install it and it works out of the box. In some cases you might need to tinker with the setting to get everything working right, but it always gets the job done.



I like that it is easy to load Mootools when needed and it solves all kinds of jQuery compatibility issues. This plugin is a must have.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the feedback, I really do appreciate it.

Admin Menu K2

Does what it says

Posted on 13 June 2012

We build all of our sites with K2 so this is a not brainer module. It cleans up the menu of links that we never use and makes it easier for the users to find what they are looking for. Well done.


ACL Manager

This is how ACL should have been done!

Posted on 15 October 2011

We develop dozens of Joomla website and we were thrilled that 1.6/1.7 had built in ACL. The problem we ran in to was trying to explain to our clients how the ACL works. The built in ACL works well but it does take extensive knowledge of how Joomla works to really understand what needs to change and where it needs to change.



Luckily, I happened to stumble across a banner for ACL Manager that caught my eye. What I found when I clicked that banner was nothing short of amazing. This is how ACL should have been done!!! The screens are VERY easy to understand and manage. Simply pick the object you want to see the permissions for and everything is displayed in one clean and intuitive display. Managing the permissions for a site is not a breeze for every the lest technical of our clients. This has earn a spot in our default installation package.



Great work, this is a first class and well don extension. Definitely should be included in the core.

Real preview should be in the core

Posted on 15 September 2011

I've been building Joomla sites for over 5 years and I can't count how many times I've had to explain to a client that the preview wasn't really a preview. I never gave it much though as to why until I stumbled across Real Preview. It makes sense that you would need a copy of the version you want to preview, which is what makes this extension so great.



The real power in Real Preview is the versioning system. This is something that has been missing and sorely needed. No more having to explain to a client that there is no undo once you save or apply changes. No more having to run Akeeba backups constantly just to make simple edits. And no more having to explain why the preview button is "broken".



Real Preview is simple to use and understand. The interface is very intuitive for any Joomla user. It couldn't be any easier to use. I haven't needed support though I did send in a question that was promptly answered within the hour.



They are planning K2 support in the near future as an added bonus. This will definitely be a must have for all of our Joomla installs.


Akeeba Backup

Simple, painless, it just works

Posted on 12 October 2010

I've been using JoomlaPack for some time now and it's earned a spot in the "install this on every site" list. I was hesitant to switch to the new Akeeba, but I am glad I did. The interface is even nicer and they've made is super easy for all of my clients to be able to run backups without having to call me. I'd give it 6 stars if I could.


XIPT for JomSocial

Fantastic extension

Posted on 16 June 2010

This should be part of the Jomsocial core. Profile types allows so much more flexibilitry it allows you to really control your community and the level of input needed for users. Shyam is very quick to answer questions, the support is excellent.


K2

Great extension

Posted on 16 May 2010

I have been using K2 in some capacity since beta. I thought it was pretty good early on, but JoomlaWorks has really done a great job implementing the features that the community wants. The latest version is a fantastic replacement for the Joomla com_content. It works well as a CCK, a blog, or anything else you can imagine.



There are a few features that would be nice, but they seem to be coming in the next version which is already in beta.



Overall this is a great piece of software and one that I use on virtually all of the sites I build.


Nice Social Bookmark

Needed a little work, but it's a great start

Posted on 13 March 2010

After installing the module I noticed my pages didn't validate any longer. When I went looking for an answer I noticed the post by ahotzler. Added his mentioned fixes and reinstalled, module works perfectly now. Other than the minor issue this works great.

K2 is a powerful extension that allows for incredible control of your Joomla content. This module is a modification to the standard K2 content display module. Rather than define the content you want to display in the module, this module pulls the item data from the current item being displayed. This allows you to expand your layout options since you can now display part of the item content in the main content display area and other bits of content in the module positions. You can even load more than one module per page to deliver highly complex layouts with the content exactly where you want it! The module supports multiple instance on a single page so putting item content exactly where you want it is no problem. K2 Plugins are triggers so the module can also be used to display the K2Mart buy now box in any module position. If you find this extension useful, be sure to rate and review! Thanks! V2.2.1 - Added Joomla update support V2.2.0 - Fixed bug with default template folder structure causing a blank page when module was used Fixed language file so it works. Module can now be translated as needed Fixed bug causing errors in PHP versions newer than 5.4.x where value was being assigned to an object before it was declared V2.1.0 Upgraded to 3.x V2.0.4 Fixed bug that prevented extra fields from displaying in module position. V2.0.3 Added height and width for video and audio plugins. V2.0.2 Complete rewrite to match new K2 code as of version 2.6.5. V2.0.1 New file to fix corrupted zip file V2.0.0 Updated for Joomla 2.5. Removed related items by tag and depreciated social links. V1.4.0 Added Social Links and Related Items by Tag as display options V1.3.0 Fixed PHP 5.3.x plugin event errors due to variable not being passed by reference V1.2.0 Fixed Undefined property errors Fixed Undefined variable errors V1.1.0 Fixed issues with module template overrides. You can now put module templates in your templates/[template name]/html/modk2bnrcontent folder and the module will find the folders properly.
