"Very important component for a library. I have tried a lot of solution but this one it's the best. Compliment for the excellent support by the authors"

Claudio

"After much searching the Ordasoft Book Library Pro component along with supporting modules is exactly what I needed and is money well spent. The support is first class and response time very quick. I had a few minor teething problems due to my Joomla settings and they were sorted out very quickly. Thank you for a great component."

David

"I'm using this for a digital library and its great and very easy to modify. I needed some changes and support was great and fast. Keep the good job!"

Mario

"This is an excellent component.If you want a digital library for your site,then this is the component for you.Has whole lot of all the required features and works beautifully.I had a few problems with the download options of ebooks after installing ,mostly caused by my own misconfiguration of settings in the backend. I asked for a solution on the Ordasoft support forums and within a few hours,the admin solved my problem. I'm really very thankful to the developers of this component for their excellent work in developing this component. This is my first review of any component at Joomla and i wish I would have given 50 stars to it.....Made an account on Joomla just to write this review for this wonderful component. Thanx a lot..Ordasoft."

Abhishek

"I've been looking for 2 years for a great Amazon Associates component for Joomla. This is the one...... works perfectly and effortlessly. Very easy to set up, the pages it creates and displays are very attractive, and it works without a hiccup. Simply add the ISBN number from the book, and it does the rest. It imports the title, author, price, description, photo and more, and automatically creates a "buy" button keyed to your Amazon Associates account. This is simply elegant..... great job guys!"

Chuck

"I love this component. It is extremely easy to use once you figure out how to get your Amazon AWS key. That is no fault of their own that Amazon makes it so hard, but I recommend maybe including a link or instructions on where to get it. I had a problem where I couldn't get it to fetch information from Amazon. I knew that the problem was hosting related because it worked on another site with a different host. Nevertheless, Ordasoft gave me speedy and thorough support and got it working right. They could have been like many other component developers and told me to talk to my host, but I appreciate that they worked with me. I have not purchased the premium version,but I plan to as soon as its financially feasible. It's not that expensive of a component, though."
