Brilliant Plugin


Posted on 24 May 2013
A very useful plugin.



Works a little like hellobar.



Useful if want to catch users attention on the landing page, but can get a bit tiresome if users stay on your site.



Easy to customize the appearance.
Owner's reply: Hello jodofin, Thanks for such a great review.

Brilliant


Posted on 19 May 2013
Like the other review, I had to change the version number. I got it working on a 2.5 site and it's brilliant.



It's particulary good at demonstrating the impact of caching on speed.



Simple and impressive.

Good and simple.

Very good and simple to use.



It displays a resizable black banner with a link to your privacy page and to the developers for extra info on the Cookie directive.



Painless to use on multiple sites and a commercial version available for configuration.



Would have like to see an option for presumed consent so that users don't have to click the accept button, but nonetheless it meets my needs and works without any hassle.

Good but not perfect


Posted on 06 May 2013
This worked okay and has lots of features.



It blocked Google cookies until the user accepted cookies, but all other cookies were set prior to consent.



This is probably okay in the UK where the ICO has accepted presumed consent.



But whilst the package has lots and lots of useful features, an option for presumed consent is not one of them.



I was able to get two display modes working - modal and ribbon and with the options for CSS styling this was enough flexibility.



If either a presumed consent option is added or if its improved so that it blocks all cookies as advertised (is this even possible???) I'd continue to use it.



As it is I am not sure whether it is even possible to block all third party cookies.
Owner's reply: Regarding cookies not blocked - you may have had session cookies already present or cookies from a subdomain (which are inaccessible). I worked very hard to be certain that I was not making a claim that I couldn't back-up when I said it blocks all cookies.

And regarding implied consent - yeah, ICO changed the rules mid-game and I haven't adapted. There are a few other free extensions in this category that operate only in the implied consent model, so you have options.

Thanks for the review! As a developer, I can tell you that the ratio of reviews to downloads is very very low.

Useful Migration Tool


Posted on 02 December 2012
Used to transfer 1.5 to 2.5 and worked with few problems.



Documentation is pretty useful and the extension seems designed to catch most problems that are likely to be encountered and actually offers choices as to how to deal with these problems. (Main problem encountered: issues with items with identical aliases).



Templates need to be migrated one at a time. And definitely a hit or miss (about 70% success rate).



Even though it is a paid product it works out less expensive than the free migration tools because it is quicker and a lot more reliable than the other tools I've tried.

Simple and Effective


Posted on 02 December 2012
Easy to use component.



Generated a comprehensive site, but the 2.5 version also included Special level as well as Registered and Public articles, and couldn't find any parameters to get around this.



Gave it a four for that reason.



Apart from that no probs. Does what it says on the tin.

Cache Cleaning


Posted on 29 December 2011
A very good and simple plugin which has more functionality than simply cleaning the cache.



Its a wee bit easier to use than the built-in Joomla cache cleaning too.

Cache Mastery


Posted on 29 December 2011
Well documented and very useful extension.



I needed something like this when Cache Wrapper, which overlaps a little in functionality, wasn't able to do the job of protecting a particular module from unwanted caching.



This achieved the solution. Nevermind it requires editing the template, it worked and was easy to implement.



This - along with CacheWrapper and CacheCleaner - is one of the three caching extensions I have to rate highly.



Excellent work.

Good Clean Showcase but Lacks Features


Posted on 21 December 2011
This is a nice extension which allows showcasing of articles in a module position. It is cleanly presented and allows suffix styling.



It worked on first instal but the main issue with it is a lack of resizing which limits its flexibility.



To be clear you can resize the module, but you it doesn't resize images.



It doesn't support random articles, but when used with NoNumber's Advanced Module Manager most of it's other limitations can be rectified.



The main plus point is that it is very simple and predictable.
