  • Welcome at JD14FR
  • Who are you ?
    Developpers / Newbies / integrators
    How long ?
  • Developers
    Sitebuilders
    Users

  • How to choose ? Just some guidelines.
  • Where do we choose?
  • Basic items :
    Component / module / plugin
    License
    Free vs Paid (however free -> might need a subscription )
    Components are the largest and most complex extensions of them all; they can be seen as mini-applications.
    Modules are more lightweight and flexible extensions used for page rendering. These modules are mostly known as the “boxes” that are arranged around a component
    Plugins are more advanced extensions and are in essence event handlers
  • Version / dev still ongoing?
    Compatibility with J?
    Date added vs date updated
  • Features , pop quiz : helpdesk component ? ( timesheet, credits, tickets to FAQ/KB)
    Look at the future
  • Sample
  • Documentation , who actually reads it ?
  • Some samples of documentation
    Documentation is very important for users & developpers
  • Who’s giving support ? -> don’t we just wish???
  • RTFM
  • Did you ever had a bad experience with Support ?
  • Just ending up , feeling like this ?
  • Ticket system whether or not with subscription
  • Forum, public vs subscription
  • Don’t be stupid, don’t download from warez sites, untrusted links or peer to peer… Only download from the JED or trusted publisher sites.
  • Test on localhost, not on a live server / production site
  • Sometime you need to take a break, have a look at it from a distance.
  • Join a JUG, exchange experiences
  • Be clear when you’re contacting support…
  • Don’t test all extensions
  • Don’t test all extensions
