Tabs

A great little plugin that works miracles

Posted on 26 January 2017
Functionality

Almost 100%. I rate it 90%, because on mobile devices you have to limit the number of tabs.

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!

Posted on 12 January 2017
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.

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.

Embed Google Map

Easy, simple, functional!

Functionality

It works like a charm

Ease of use

Instal the plugin, read the documentation, set the map. Done.

Support

Don't know, didn't need it.

Documentation

Not a lot, but that's all it needs.

I used this to: Place google maps in articles. Highly recommended.

Unite Forms

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.

Ease of use

It's very easy to use, with a bit of tinkering you don't really need a manual or documentation.

Support

Since it's a paid extension, support is good. UniteCMS support is always good.

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!

JFBAlbum

Don't use it

Posted on 15 February 2016
Functionality

It used to be a good extension, but after an upgrade it broke. After that, it never worked. Contacting the developer was useless.

Ease of use

Easy, when it worked. As doesn't, not very easy.

Support

Zero. The developer took the money and I never made heard from him.

Documentation

Good enough.

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.

SP Portfolio

Not really impressive

Posted on 12 January 2015
Functionality

Very basic. If you need a basic portfolio extension, it's good enough. If you need to modify it, look for something else.

Ease of use

If you want to work with the default settings: easy to configure.

Support

Non existent. You can't contact the developer unless you pay for forum access.

Documentation

Basic. Good enough if you want to work out of the box.


News Show Pro GK4

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.

Trombinoscope Contacts

Works like a charm

Posted on 24 November 2012

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!

GK Weather

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.


Art Total Menu Light

Simple, easy and fast

Posted on 18 February 2011

I was looking for a reliable dropdown menu. Plenty to choose from here. But ATML is fast to load, very easy to configure and consistent between browsers.



All you need to know is a bit of CSS to modify it.
