100

The standard by which the Joomla world should be measured

100
Functionality
It can load images from folders, content items, most 3rd party extensions, but also you can create your own data connectors! Brilliant!
100
Ease of use
Basic sliders are easy; however, really creative work (or connect to your own data source) you will need to spend some time learning
100
Support
I wish there was a higher rating than 100'. In 10+ years I have NEVER received such 'great' service from ANY Joomla developer - EVER!
98
Documentation
Very good. There are a few things (custom) missing, but just ask support and they walk you through it.
100
Value for money
Again, wish I could rate more than 100. This is probably one of the best values for your money in any Joomla extension.
I used this to: Displaying images from custom components that I have created (as well as standard Joomla components). The display styles are many - fitting for every application.I'm throwing away all other image display extensions and using this. There's none other that comes close.

Great search - with ZOO integration


Posted on 14 May 2013
I needed a search solution that allowed me to create modules that only searched specific ZOO app content. Using MijoSearch with the ZOO extension (commercial) did the job.

The ZOO extension allows you to create filters based on App Instance, category, access restriction.

I would have given an excellent review if the ZOO extension would have a 'type' option. But the rest of the system and the support are excellent.

It works ... once you get it.

This is a great little plugin that makes it easy to make your site look nice.

Just be aware that if you try to download and get 'cryptic' error messages that it may be due to the fact that you have to be logged in to access the files.

The error messages on the site don't at all make that clear (and when you try to access them you get 'invalid category' messages).

Also, be aware that you have to go through about 5 screens to actually download the plugin. (but it is worth the effort).

I'd give a perfect review if these basic UI issues were fixed on the site.

Good extension and service

I've been using LiveZilla for a while, but when they started charging I decided to consider other (including paid) alternatives.

With LiveZilla I always had problems because the client had to be installed on every agent's computer.

This system makes it easy ... I can even respond to inquiries on my smartphone using my skype account!

The service (for any active site) will cost you, but DEFINITELY worth it if you need to provide professional live help at a reasonable cost.
