RE: PMS and Joomla 1.5 RC1
Would it be permissible to have a sticky post on the subject of PMS here or wherever is appropriate?
The world of PMS has changed much in the first half of this year and development has ground to a halt in most camps. I spent the better part of 24 hours testing the following 4 PMS with Joomla 1.5 RC and CB 1.1beta3. They are among the few that can even still be found and have not closed shop (_____ enter reason here)
PMS is an endangered species right now in the Joomla CMS and it may take Joomla Core to bend a little and help out to bring the old dogs along to the new ranch. I hope you will help.
TESTED THESE FOUR PMS THOROUGHLY
- PMS Enhanced
My experience doesn't require a template to explain the facts. After much testing I confirm that 3 of 4 do not function enough to be used at all with Joomla 1.5 RC1
UddeIM: Installs = YES (partial functionality using _mod - not enough though. com_uddeim fails to display messages)
PMS Enhanced: Installs = YES (not functional)
Missus: Installs = YES (with mod - not functional)
JIM: Installs = YES (functional but not using Quick Message TAB with CB )
You know why I didn't test Clexus.
If anyone wants to share their test experiences, thank you. I have tried these at length and ask Joomla Core for support with backward compatibility for the existing PMS components. They're all we've got and they should not vanish from the landscape of Joomla.
