Just Do It!

100
Functionality
It really works - amazingly well.
100
Ease of use
If all goes well, and depending on the complexity of your site, it probably will, the process couldn't be easier.

Support
Now, this is where Migrate Me really shines. Barnaby really supports his customers in a way that VERY few other developers do. Thrilled!
100
Documentation
I did not consult the documentation, but the process is really easy, so I didn't need to look into it.

Value for money
It is not cheap, but Migrate Me is the BEST. You get what you pay for - a great component with even better support from the developer.
I used this to: I used Migrate Me to upgrade over a dozen sites. Only my most complicated sites gave me any trouble, and the developer backed up his code with first-class service. Couldn't recommend another migration component so long as Migrate Me exists.

Unique module

Functionality
The module does exactly what it promises, and then some. It's really unique at what it does. Just wish it also supported Vimeo.
100
Ease of use
No problem using the module right after download - I needed no support, and it's very intuitive.
100
Support
Immediate follow-up to my purchase to offer any guidance needed. However, it was so easy to use, I didn't need any support.
100
Documentation
None needed - but what I have seen looks complete and easy to find.

Value for money
Excellent!
I used this to: Prominent placement of a background video in a header on a client's home page

Does not protect against distributed IPs

Functionality
This extension presumes that all brute force attacks come from a single IP address. That's just not typical of the attacks I see.

Ease of use
Not a problem to use.

Owner's reply: Hi and thanks for your review!
True, bfstop in its current form does not provide real protection against distributed attacks. I've also seen increased numbers of those, so there are some plans from my side to implement some countermeasures, see https://github.com/codeling/bfstop/issues/76 . If you have any further suggestions how this could be dealt with better, I would love to hear them!

This component is one of the best looking calendar components for Joomla. Additionally, I really like the Mac iCal-like design, which plays pretty well on mobile devices as well as different systems.



However, the component is not compatible with 2.5 as specified by the developer. I cannot access any of my calendars having updated to 2.5 following the developer's public blessing of 2.5 compatibility.



Furthermore, the developer seems to have gone otherwise dormant - with major work still being required to get this component to work properly in supported systems or work at all in Joomla 2.5. Forum posts languish for days and weeks without any answer.



I cannot recommend this component at this time. Fix the 2.5 incompatibility at the very least!

Excellent, excellent, excellent!

Why did it take this long for someone to come along with a newsletter component that just works the way it should? From the purchase to the installation, to the day-to-day use, this is the best I've found.



That's not to say there isn't room for improvement, particularly in the CAPTCHA (commercial versions only), which is not very configurable.



It would also be nice if you could easily change the dates of created newsletters. That feature would be particularly helpful for designers putting older content into a new site design, or even into an existing site with AcyMailing setup for the first time.



It looks like the developer is regularly updating this component, and I look forward to advances down the line!
Owner's reply: The captcha has been recently added to AcyMailing and you can already:
-> set its size
-> set the number of characters you want to display in it
-> specify a list of characters AcyMailing will use (so you can limit it to only numbers for example)
-> configure the background-colour
-> configure the text colour

Please write a post on our forum or send us an e-mail if you have more ideas so we can add it to our todo list!
