Absolutely Perfect Contact Form


Posted on 28 October 2017

Functionality
Flexi Contact provides a basic contact form with some options. Which is exactly what I needed; I only wanted a simple, easy-to-use form.

Ease of use
A pdf is provided: read it. Installation is VERY simple but it's a good idea to scan the Docs in order to tweak the setup.

Support
I didn't need any. Easy peasy setup.

Documentation
Excellent documentation! I was very impressed with the PDF. Beautiful layout (from a writer's perspective) and very thorough.

Beautiful and Very Easy to Use!

I like the fact that it uses the Joomla images folder, so it's very easy to change my slideshow whenever I want.



This module installed very easily, setup was a breeze and it looks wonderful. I'm very glad I tried this module first; I don't need to look any further!

Worked like a Charm!

It only took me about two minutes to set up my Google Calendar in a module position. And it works without any conflicts (I was getting invalid token errors with another calendar module.) And it looks great. Easy to customize: just adjust the Google Code snippet.



Thank you to the Developer for an attractive and Super-Easy Google calendar.

This is a Beautiful Slideshow Module


Posted on 02 December 2013
I've used a lot of Joomla modules and extensions: I am very impressed with the quality of this module. It has many options, is very flexible. Looks beautiful. Works very well. Accepts a lot of slides. Adjusts to different sizes.



I didn't understand why I was getting Buck Bunny in my slideshow, but that is an easy fix... Click on VIDEO button for each slide until you find the one that has an url for the Buck Bunny video. Delete the url and it's all gone. (And now you also know how and where to add a video if you want to.)



Thank you to the developer, this is outstanding work IMO.

Very impressive Puzzle game


Posted on 23 March 2013
I've done a lot of research on Jigsaw Puzzle scripts, and this is one of the best I've seen. It has all the latest features, plenty of options and it's just a really cool game. I hope they will upgrade it for Joomla 3.0 soon.

Came up empty...


Posted on 10 September 2012
I installed this on my new Joomla 2.5.6 site and enabled the special plugins to go with my special components... and the sitemap was completely empty! It didn't even recognize my Joomla articles much less the addon component pages. I doublechecked everything, enabled and unenabled and enabled again, but it was just an empty sitemap. I've used xmap in the past so not unfamiliar with it...



I've been using the XML-Sitemap generator on my Joomla sites. It's not a Joomla component but it does have a Joomla configuration and it read all 2900 pages on my site accurately with no arguments. And Google webmaster tools accepted my Sitemap without argument. So I'll continue to use that.



I expected a favored Google component to work better, but I was disappointed.

Should be part of Joomla Core because it uses Joomla's Brain


Posted on 06 September 2012
I wondered why this extension does not have a Live Demo... and it's because this is a "Do-it-Yourself" Joomla gallery, so there is no standard configuration!



Admiror Gallery uses Joomla's own Articles, Categories, Image Folder and Menu to create a Gallery. Which sounds as if it might be complicated or tedious to work with, but it's not! I set up my whole custom Gallery in an hour, including the learning curve and looking around the Admiror website.



I'm very happy with my custom gallery. I was able to create just what I needed for an educational/resource website. For me, it was easiest to select a Joomla Category List for a menu: this made an instant Gallery with links to all my Gallery pages.



Thumbs are generated automatically from the images folders (you can adjust size and shape of the thumbs in the plugin settings.) I put my folders within the images/sampledata/ folder and my images were all detected automatically.



This is a brilliant plugin. (And remember, it's a plugin so it needs to be enabled in the plugins area of the Admin.) There are plenty of settings so you can tweak it to look just the way you want.



The best way to SEE what this Admiror Gallery can do is to play with it. I'm not a programmer, but I'm a fairly experienced Joomla user so I didn't have much trouble setting it up. If you're a Joomla Noob then you possibly need a Gallery that has everything arranged for you. But if you know how to work with Categories, Articles, and Menus this is basic stuff for most Joomla users.



I was wondering why Joomla doesn't come with a core Image Gallery. If it did, THIS is the way it should work. Admiror Gallery is not an overly-simplistic gallery however. It's very flexible.



Like I said, these programmers are brilliant, IMO. This is a wonderful plugin for Joomla.
Owner's reply: You make us blush. Thank You so much for great reviews, we appreciate it. We call all interested to help and support project through some of our fundraising campaigns. Currently we are going for next release of AG: http://www.indiegogo.com/admiror-gallery-5

I installed it on 2.5 and it works great!

Originally I activated the Recaptcha plugin that comes with Joomla 2.5, but I was not happy with the display: I could NOT read ANY of the captchas!! I must have clicked it 50 times or more. So I knew that I couldn't do that to my users (or potential users.)



I installed this Security Images plugin instead. I'm using the little animated movie captcha, which is easy to read and only requests 3 letters.



I didn't have any problems with installation: it showed up on the Registration Form immediately.



I don't understand why Joomla's default Recaptcha looks so incredibly BAD. Almost completely unreadable! I'm very glad there are other options like this Security Image plugin.

Very Nice!! Easy to Use with SWF files!


Posted on 13 April 2012
I wanted to use the Sweetykeeper Game on my Joomla 2.5 site, but it hasn't been upgraded since Joomla 1.5 and didn't work. Then I saw this module and thought I'd try it. Works like a charm! I just used the SWF file from the Sweetykeeper install package and that's all it needed.



I can see a lot of potential for this module!! I'm thinking of looking for other free SWF files I could use on my site... there are lots of possibilities for games and fun stuff, besides some really cool design elements.



You can use the module with just ONE swf file (like I did with Sweetykeeper), or you can run a series of them on one page.



Installation was simple. I made an article with a Loadposition on it, then selected that position for the Random Flash Module. It's really nice when something works the first time around!

Amazingly EASY.

I've had problems with Facebook LIKE buttons in the past, they never seem to work very good. This module installed very easily, the parameters were straightforward and when I checked my site: every page had the LIKE button on it, and it works. Why is SUCCESS so astonishing???



Yes, I highly recommend this extension. I LIKE IT.
