Excellent Component

Posted on 19 December 2014
Did exactly what it said it would do.
Ease of use
This extension worked out-of-the-box. Simple and hassle free.
No support but the extension is so easy to use, you don't really need any support.
Documentation is a little hard to find. But it is there if you need it, which you wont.
Value for money
I used this to: I used this to export a stack of articles from Joomla 2-5 site, and imported them into Joomla 3.3.6 site.
It worked very well.
Had one small error where the receiving site couldn't read the format of the .xml file it was trying to import. {j2xml file format unknown. impossible

Very customisable!

Because this store is article-based its very simple to get the hang of things, it also makes for infinite creativity when designing your store front.

Had a small issue, got on to support, and it was fixed within minutes.


You should move more often

Just nailed the Pro version of this bad boy for half-price thanks to Peter moving house.

Ahh the benefits of Twitter....

The pro version is definitely worth it!

If only for the front-end cache cleaning?! :)

Awesomely deflated :)

Wondering why there's still a unicorn in my garden?!

WTF? I went pro man!

No support to fix bugs

Purchased this as it looked quite good.

But it turned out to have a couple of bugs which I needed support for.

After contacting them several times and receiving no response I have had to remove the extension.

If they supported this extension it wouldn't be such a waste of money.

Flexicontact comes out on top!

I last tried Flexi Contact over a year ago and wasn't very impressed. I didn't like the interface and things just didn't look very good.

I decided to give the extension another try this week to see if it had been improved on.

What a difference!!

Everything you could want from a Contact component is now in there, and it's very easy to customise to your own needs.

Top marks!

Needs more work!

Purchased this based on the examples featured on their 'Demo' page. But was left feeling disappointed.

Using K2 2.5, it will only source K2 items from child categories, not from a parent/root category. And the four themes look very basic, and will require css editing to sit well with almost any template.

And to top it off, their contact form for submitting support tickets does not work!

A nice idea, just requires more work!
Owner's reply: Dear Moraelin

Yesterday, we upgraded this module to work for unlimited levels of categories. You can use any level of categories for main categories, also, we are moving to new hosting, Next time, you can submit tickets easier

Thanks for your feedback

Not browser compliant on a Mac.

Just tested this on a Mac.

It works well on Firefox, but on Safari and Chrome it does not render correctly. It just produces static links with no animation.

That would normally deserve just 1 star, but as it's a new extension I'm sure the dev's will get round to sorting this glitch out!
Owner's reply: Thank you for your comment.

Demo works fine for us in the latest versions of Safari and Chrome:

Perfect for Youtube integration.

Quick and easy to set up, with a very nice range of different skins to fit in with the look of any site. I literally set this up within 2 minutes and it looks great!

And the retro Plexi skin, with old school switches and styling, looks amazing.

And even though this is a commercial extension, it only costs $5.

Well worth it.

Would give this 6 stars if I could!
Owner's reply: Thanks and be sure to get the latest release with some additional functions.

Just to clarify though: the skins were not designed by us so credit goes to the authors which are all listed at longtail video's addon page as indicated in the module details. Also the $5 fee is not for the single module but for access to all available extensions for life.

An amazing platform to bend to your needs!

The google maps integration and customizable filters gives this extension a huge amount of potential.

After reading up on it, I bought this extension with a view to using it for something other than real estate. And with very little coding it can be bent to the needs of any intrepid website developer.

It's quite expensive, but as it does what no other extension out there does(for the time being), it's well worth it!
