2.0.5 Released

Update:I have updated the downloadable zip file as there were a few extra files in it which were causing problems for Joomla 1.5.

Version 2.0.5 has been released. The release contains a few bug fixes as well as some new presentation features.

  • Fixes bug with nested selects on review listing.
  • Fixes incorrect Top N sort order.
  • Adds a First letter filter for reviews on category page.
  • Adds the option for a default sort field for reviews on category page.
  • Adds a new (nicer) horizontal Top N listing.

The first letter filter lets you only show reviews starting with say ‘M’. The new horizontal Top N layout is a lot nicer that the vertical one and takes up a lot less real estate. As usual you can see the changes in full effect at sardless.com.

You can download it from the Project Home Page. An upgrade for 2.0.4 users will be available soon as well as the fixed search bot.

The bad news…
I really wanted to get user reviews in, I know I have been promising this ever since it was taken out of the original 2.0 release; but unfortunately this will not be available for quite some time. I am relocating overseas and it will be at least a month before I get set back up and can continue with development. If any developers out there want to attempt it then feel free to contact me about it.

2.0.4 Component and Modules

Version 2.0.4 of the Component and Modules (top and latest reviews) has been released. There is also an upgrade for users.


  • Review listing on category now has an alternating css class
  • You can now have a max rating of > 5 for star ratings
  • Improvements for Latest and Top modules (css suffix and class)

To upgrade the component unzip the patch and follow the instructions in README.txt. To upgrade the modules uninstall the old ones and then install the new ones.
IMPORTANT: You must use version 2.0.4 of the modules with version 2.0.4 of the component.
