The extension pretty much does everything you want with a form builder.

Ease of use
RSForm is easy for developers, but I wouldn't expect my clients to figure it out right out of the box. Admin emails and layout is not easy.

I happily pay for this, as I get something that works, works well, and looks like it will be around for a long time.
I used this to: I use the extension for everything from simple contact forms to much more complex employment applications.

Sterling extension

It works. It's simple.



You can't do much better than that.



The built in responsive menu in the Gantry framework is completely inadequate and causes more problems that it solves. This makes for a perfect replacement.

Doesn't work, support questionable and too pricey


Posted on 01 October 2012
I used this extension on Joomla 1.5 sites with no problems, but this was my first time on a 2.5 site. Sadly, the module fails to show any of my content no matter how I set it.



Turning to the developer's website, you soon discover that to merely ask a question on the forum will cost at least $51 and given all the complaints on the forum, getting a prompt answer seems dicey at best. For anyone with an issue similar to mine, the developers seem to respond no better advice than "RTFM." Well, I did RTFM -- many times -- and it's not helping me. Bad attitude all around.



It seems like a fine extension, but it is not worth $51.

Finally, finally!!

Admittedly, I haven't lived with this extension for very long, but this looks like a complete godsend -- something Joomla has needed for a LONG time. Thanks so much for doing this. Now my sites don't have to look like they were typeset like a church flyer.

an essential extension


Posted on 29 November 2011
If you care at all about quantifying your traffic (and who doesn't) then I cannot recommend this extension enough.



Installing is a little more complicated than many extensions. In fact, any extension download that tells you to "unzip first" means that you're should be a Joomla expert, but if so, then the process is otherwise rather straightforward.



I have found this to be a good complement to Google Analytics, even with Google's new real time tracking. However, you do need to be careful about how much data you want to track, because Joomlawatch will make your database bloat up something huge. This becomes an issue with migration and upgrades, which in this case, are still anything but intuitive. Knowledge of MySQL is essential.



Nice work, though. I can't recommend enough.

No module class suffix


Posted on 29 November 2011
I installed it effortlessly and go it to work, but I can't use this extension because it does not provide the ability to apply a style suffix. If that's important to you, then keep looking.
Owner's reply: @roadsider. Thanks for posting your comments. As of version 2.0, Module Class Suffix is available.

excellent extension


Posted on 21 November 2011
Love this extension. It installs easily and it even seamlessly imported comments from another comments component. Users had no problem using it. Unfortunately, I'm upgrading my site now to 1.7, and it's not compatible. I hate to leave it behind.

Smooth and painless


Posted on 02 June 2011
Among the easiest of any major extension to install and configure I've yet to encounter, especially considering what it brings to the table.

A few too many issues


Posted on 24 June 2010
This extension is a huge step in the right direction, but I take away points because it still requires some major CSS tweaking to make a fully featured site work on an iPhone. I have some features, such as image slide shows, that completely break the iPhone layouts.



This would work great, I suppose, with relatively simple sites or blogs, but it does hobble full Joomla installations.



I'm looking forward to future versions. It's definitely the best solution available in this category.
Owner's reply: Thanks for your feedback roadsider. Following Joomla!, we are focusing on a high performance and stable core, which would be expanded with extensions. This, as you say, is aimed to provide solution for relatively simple sites. Once we achieve this, we will introduce Mobile extensions to mobilize more complex Joomla! sites.

Responsive menus are intelligent menu systems that can adapt themselves according to the environment they are run on. Most menu systems available for joomla fail miserably on mobile platforms.
