Eats up bandwidth like possessed


Posted on 31 May 2017

Functionality
Good, but ONLY use it for what it was build: to make a layered slide show. Do NOT use it as an image slider.
53
Ease of use
Reasonable. Layered slide shows take a bit of learning. This one is not the most difficult to master.
16
Support
Sloppy. Uncaring. Not really interested in keeping clients happy. Replies I'd expect for a free extension, not one you pay for.
68
Documentation
Fair. Layered slide shows need some learning. Documentation is good enough to get you started.

Value for money
Very, VERY bad. I have a small site, 36 MB. Bandwidth usage per month: over 2 GB. Why? Because the slider gobbles it all up.
I used this to: Not anymore I don't! an extension that blows my bandwidth 55x over the roof is not to be recommended. It's fairly good layered slider, but only use it on a account with unlimited bandwidth.

A great little plugin that works miracles

Functionality
Almost 100%. I rate it 90%, because on mobile devices you have to limit the number of tabs.
100
Ease of use
Install the plugin. Read the documentation. That's all you need to know.

Support
I haven't used it for the tabs, but I know from other experiences they respond quickly.

Documentation
All you need to know, plus a bit more.

I used this to: most of my websites, to present information more logical, and visually more appealing. Regular labs made a brilliant extension here.

Must have plugin!

Functionality
Simple and to the point: keeps unwanted people out.

Ease of use
Install the plugin. Read the docs, if necessary. Configure it. Done.

Support
Excellent. Quick response to my question, good answer.

Documentation
Clear, easy to read. This difficult subject is explained so everyone can understand it.

Value for money
I used this to: All my websites. Is now my default "keep-way-undesirables" plugin. Highly recommended. Even if your site is low profile, hackers want to deface it, or damage is. This plugin keeps them away, very effectively.

Is this a commercial beta test version?


Posted on 14 September 2016

Functionality
Extremely limited. Validation is only possible on numeric and email fields. No calender, no date picker.
100
Ease of use
It's very easy to use, with a bit of tinkering you don't really need a manual or documentation.
100
Support
Since it's a paid extension, support is good. UniteCMS support is always good.
2
Documentation
There is a demo page online where you can try things out. That's it.

Value for money
I honestly thought this was a beta test version, not ready for production. I contacted UniteCMS and they told me: 'no, this is for real'.
I used this to: I don't. I trashed it. Money gone. Not a lot, but any charging any amount of money for such a limited extension is too much. Especially from UniteCMS I expected a lot better. I have several UniteCMS extensions, which I recommend very much. This one I don't. STAY AWAY!

Don't use it

1
Functionality
It used to be a good extension, but after an upgrade it broke. After that, it never worked. Contacting the developer was useless.
2
Ease of use
Easy, when it worked. As doesn't, not very easy.
2
Support
Zero. The developer took the money and I never made heard from him.
37
Documentation
Good enough.
1
Value for money
None at all. I recommend looking for another solution.
I used this to: I don't use it any more.
Owner's reply: Sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with this extension.
Facebook changed things several times breaking the extension and every time I was able to fix it within a couple of days.
Also jQuery problem is very common in a system like Joomla and WordPress which needs to be resolved manually.
I listed 2 email address on the contact page of my website and I always reply the gmail address emails personally while support persons and I reply the other one.
The extension is fully functional at this moment and didn't break in months.

Not really impressive

Functionality
Very basic. If you need a basic portfolio extension, it's good enough. If you need to modify it, look for something else.
80
Ease of use
If you want to work with the default settings: easy to configure.
50
Documentation
Basic. Good enough if you want to work out of the box.

doesn't work in 3.2


Posted on 04 January 2014
I wanted to try this extension, it looks promising. However it does not work in Joomla 3.2. You can install it, but that is as far as I got.
Owner's reply: Hi!

Many thanks for your comments. We've actually started rebuilding NSP from the ground up, so if you're after the latest, feature-rich version of NSP that's compatible with the newest Joomla releases you should download the main 'News Show Pro' release, available via our site (just follow the download link on this page).

News Show Pro GK4 is still available for download and we will continue to provide support for it via our GitHub repository, but the general News Show Pro release will be the main version.

Works like a charm

A simple module doing a great job. Makes your default contacts look much better in a list.
Owner's reply: Thank you very much for the review!

the best but ...


Posted on 28 October 2012
I found this the very best weather module. Easy to install, looks nice.



But ... it installs itself in a separate subdomain. That's something the developer should inform the user about. Not somewhere on page 999 of a manual, but right away.



Apart from that, I certainly recommend this one. But I can't give it 5 stars due to the above problem.
