"Ingenious" says Jim Gribble, with a 5 star rating
Credit this company for coming up with a brilliant idea. Build your own link directory website; or, like us, use it invite others to create quality partner links. The SEO potential is awesome, if used correctly. My only issue was the extreme difficulty of customizing the front-end view. But this developer is wonderfully responsive and dedicated; and he gave generously of his time to help us get the look and feel we needed. He also assures me that the next version will be far easier to customize. Some of the best service I have ever received from a Joomla extensions developer. Thank you, JV-Extensions!
"Awesome product and support !" says idealdragon, with a 5 star rating
I've spent a lot of time on the Internet to find the perfect component that would suit my needs for my website project and I came across this one almost by chance. The demo looked cool and all the positive reviews convinced me. But all the features I found in this component were far beyond my expectations and brought new perspectives for my project. This product is highly configurable and a bit complicated to manage at first but once you've gone through the great and many options, all become crystal clear and you finally realize how the whole thing is perfectly designed. You might need a little knowledge in CSS for a perfect look and feel of your site but beginners will find a great product here anyway. Last but not least, the support team is excellent. I had a problem with an option I'd missed in the configuration. I got an answer within a few minutes ... on a Sunday afternoon ! So all I have to say is great job guys, thanks alot for your supersonic and kind support, you're a real asset for the joomla community !
"Flexible, Feature Rich; Excellent Update Support" says Lynn, with a 5 star rating
I tried JV-Link Directory after looking at several other (older, better known) alternatives. I needed a directory system that someone with minimal Joomla skills could use, but also has features Id want to expose to the public 6 months, 1 year and two years later. Good support is also a must. I am very impressed with both this component and its developer!
We use both EasyDiscuss and Jomsocial, and not only did it integrate well with those solutions, the developer was able to resolve any issues on a time table that worked very well for me as a business customer.
If you need a directory solution, I recommend you save time and start with this excellent component!
"Excellent Support For Awesome Software" says Andy, with a 5 star rating
Having recently upgraded my directory from Joomla 1.5 to 3.1 the task of upgrading the directory database was really intimidating. Thats partly why it was still on Joomla 1.5 for so long! The support I received from JVLD however was incredible. Without their help I think I would have been forced to give up. Thanks so much for everything! I really could not have done it without you guys!
"Very good directory extension" says Alexeo, with a 5 star rating

"Amazing link directory solution for Joomla!" says Voytek, with a 5 star rating
This is a really powerful extension! I was using some other solutions before, e.g. Sobi2 which in the end I was totally disappointed with. JV-LinkDirectory has a lot of interesting features and you don't have to buy many expensive add-ons to make it look and work good. They are already included in the main package! I'm very satisfied with the design and features of this extension. I would like to recommend it to anyone looking for a good link directory solution for Joomla!. Thanks!
"Great Product - Great Support" says Michael Haupt, with a 5 star rating
The commercial version of JV-Link Directory is an extremely flexible for managing myriad software links. Although my site only has a few links now, I prefer to set up the organization first then add links rather than the other way around. The product performs as promised. In the future, I look forward to taking advantage of the features to help monetize the site.
Shortly after installing it, I had several RTFM questions and filed a trouble ticket. I was amazed to get a response in several hours. Instead of going off on me telling me to check the Forum first (like some other support staff I've dealt with), I received a detailed explanation that was right to the point. He also politely directed me to the available documentation for future use.
One can't ask for any more.
"Great Extension, great support, great value for money" says Christopher Philip Eden, with a 5 star rating
I have been using Joomla for many years now and seldom have I come across a component as good as this one. Even with the component being so good, the support, it has to be stressed, is even better.
I recommend this component to anyone looking for a great links directory that cannot fail but add another brilliant dimension to any website.
"Great links component!" says Peter Richardson, with a 5 star rating
I've upgraded to JV-LinkDirectory from a much older component, it was simple to install, imported my old links automatically and the developer's support is fast and easy to understand : I had no problems styling the component to fit in with my site (the component's built in CSS editor is a real bonus here).
The sh404sef plugin worked perfectly for me too. Five stars!
"Fantastic component and support!" says Abu Said, with a 5 star rating
I usual don't have a time to write review but I spared my 2 minutes for this one!This component works as described by developer is well developed.

However, Niranjan (the Developer) is tireless to help and provide excellent support, The component works perfect out of box with a lot features with options to turn them on and off. I highly recommended.
"Best extension & Developers out there!" says Craig Kelly, with a 5 star rating
This is a superb product, and it works right out of the box - unlike 95% of the extensions on here.The instructions are clear & concise and when you need to help to tweak it support is fantastic. NO language problems and they are on it straight away. I wish these guys made more extensions I need.
"How fantastic" says fads100, with a 5 star rating
I just want to say a huge thank you to jv extensions for a fantastic component that works right out of the box. We are so pleased with it that we have moved our business directory away from our main site and created another website based around the component and other modules and plugins from jv extensions.
These are the boxes that it ticks:
Simple to use â€“ no user manual required
Works out of the box â€“ no backend hacking
Works with all the browsers that we have tested- we have tested on Safari, IE8 and firefox
You can make money out of this
It is really inexpensive
To be honest I like nothing more than a good rant to get my day off to a good start but I can only praise jv extensions for their work.
"Excellent Product, Excellent Support" says DianaRae, with a 5 star rating
Being new to SEO and building websites in general I was a little skeptical in paying for a product I didn't fully understand. I must say ALL of my worries are now gone.
The JV-LinkDirectory is a wonderfurl product. Not only is it fully featured (more then I ever imagined) it has tremendous documentation. And if that isn't enough - the response time with any questions you might have are answered in LESS then a day.
I cannot recommend this product enough!

This extension is excellent. Very intuitive and complete! I must say, after being a Joomla fan for a couple of years, testing most extensions, this extension is everything and more you could hope for in a directory extension. As usual, there is some room for improvement, but the owner has left that open for you to customize as you wish! Bravo for this excellent extension. Customer Service is great. The only issue is the login and access to information. You must be patient, but will be well worth it. Go for the maximum, you will not be disappointed!
"JV-LD. Just How Good Can It Get?" says Paul Stuart, with a 5 star rating
I use JV-LD on our website. It is a very advanced link directory management system with features that go well beyond other weblink extensions, both free and commercial.
The staff at JV-Extensions are always trying to improve their products by introducing new elements and refining existing ones, with the ultimate goal of providing Joomla users' with the best extensions that money can buy.
One does not have to think too deeply as to whether the the cost of their extensions, especially JV-LD is worth the money. The professional look it gives ones website says it all. Highly recommended, not just because of their professional products but also aftersales care, which, sadly with a lot of other companies seems to be lacking somewhat.

"I love this!" says SimpleSchooling, with a 5 star rating
I purchase extensions all the time and sometimes they are good and sometimes they are fair - but it is not very often that I feel they are GREAT. I love this extension. I have used several different directories and this one does it all and it LOOKS great too. Worked right out of the box, just went through all the configuration pages one by one and then made my categories and added links. Very simple. I love it when I feel like I've gotten 100% of my money's worth.
"Great Product and Support" says Anthony Lemons, with a 5 star rating
First off, I very seldom give any form of review a perfect score. I feel there is always room for improvement, whether it be with the product itself or more than likely with the service or support. Yet, here I am giving out a 5 star rating for JV-LD, which has quickly become my most favorite component.
After checking out every directory component for Joomla, lots of head scratching, and late nights testing some of them, I went ahead and purchase JV-LD. Right from the start I was impressed with this component. It seemed rock solid and contained the basics of what I was looking for in a link directory.
I'm sure when anyone is looking for a particular component to fit their needs each component will come up short in some area. The more I used it, the more I wanted it to do. Not a problem as you can just send them your requests and if it is something simple, they normally get back with a solution in a matter of minutes. If it is a little more complicated, they will tell you they will check on it and see if it is possible. If so, it will make it in an upcoming release. They seem truly interested in improving and making JV-LD one of the best link directory components out there.
You also cannot give a proper review of something like this unless you have a problem. Then you get to see what type of support you receive from a company. I kind of expect to receive crappy support from free components, but when you pay for a product you at least want problems to be addressed. Every single problem or question I've had has been promptly answered and fixed in a timely manner. I've never had to wait and wait only to ask the same question again. Niranjan has always been quick and professional in his responses...even when I've had problems and they were not a result of their component, but the template I was using. I've had them send me custom code changes, log into my site to check and/or change things, etc. Each time a solution was found that I was happy with.
Thanks for the great product and service you provide. I highly recommend anyone looking for a directory component to give JV-LD a try.
Top notch company to deal with that has great support
Extremely stable and feature rich component
Best link management features of any component I've tested
Easy an intuitive front end submissions
Back end management features
Easy to customize
Spending way too much time coming up with new directories to use this on.
"A great product with outstanding support" says Abbie Has, with a 5 star rating
JVLD is great - easy to install (I was a Joomla novice when I first installed it), easy to use and as I say, outstanding support. I have installed and used JVLD on several websites. On the one occasion when I did have a layout issue (a problem with the template CSS I was using rather than JVLD), the developer logged into my Joomla website and fixed it for me! JVLD is constantly being developed and the developer does seem keen to integrate all feasible feature requests, left by users on his forum, into future editions. Top marks.
"The best Extension Ever" says Naushad Hassam, with a 5 star rating
At 1st it did not meet my needs, BUT I had contacted the customer service and Niranjan made a custom mod which I paid for AND now this is the best directory i have had and EASY .... SO EASY TO USE......I recommend to everyone. The customer service is great too. :)
"Great component - first class support" says jokrsolutions, with a 5 star rating
The component seams stable and welt built. Working great on my site. I had a small problem but Sniranjan showed first class support and fix it immediately!
Request for later editions:
* Even greater GUI in frontend
* Improvent i backend dashboard (overview)
* Full support for Joomfish
I really recommend this extension!
"Best of the Best" says Bernie Grohsman, with a 5 star rating
JV-Link Directory is hands down, by far, the best link manager/reciprocal link checking component (and so much more) for joomla in existence. Vijay has developed it over the years into an in-depth and flexible directory system that rivals dedicated business directories in it's features and functionality, while at its core providing a slew of features that no other directory provides - namely the most complete link management functionality available for joomla.
As a link component, it is unrivaled in it's functionality. If you can imagine it, it does it... And on the off chance that it doesn't, just contact Vijay and it's not uncommon for him to create the new functionality that you need or want right there on the spot and upload it to your website! His service and support for his components is fabulous - if only all component developers were so generous and responsive to webmaster's needs!
"Perfect links submission manager" says Laleralus, with a 5 star rating
Really good component to create a database of patners : so many possibilities and features...
And perfect support : fast and efficient ;)
So happy ;)
"Looks Good, Works Well, Great Support" says Dot, with a 5 star rating
I'm not usually a 5 star person because things could always be better but these guys really deserve all 5 stars. The directory is comprehensive, easily customisable to your own needs, looks good, great functionality and the best of all the support is quick and effective.
"great products" says Daniel Farjam, with a 5 star rating
Thanks for amazing support, service and great products!!!
"What else could you want?" says Garry, with a 5 star rating

Worth every penny
"my vote" says ali, with a 5 star rating
"Wow, one word, fantastic" says Nam, with a 5 star rating
I can't not believe how good this script is. I started with the Free one, then decided to buy JV-link. To be honest I was hesitate at first because the out-of-the-box look does not good as good as Mosets tree, but I was wrong.
. It is jammed packed with features, I spent an hour just to play around with the admin, and I still have not fully understand it. There are so many options to customize.
. Price: Great, the subscription is very reasonable, if not cheap compare to Mosets Tree.
. Support: Wow, amazing! Niranjan respond to my questions quickly and efficiently. And my questions was not even about the script's bug or errors, but my customization (which he doesn't have to support at all). Not only that, he was went beyond helping by login to my site and fixed my CSS. Compare to Mosets tree, a question about reciprocal link has no answer in 3 days (and still has not). This guy knows what's he doing, and stand behind his product!
Cons: I have to think hard to find these :)
. No option to change the language via admin interface. If you have other language rather than English you have to go through language file to make change.
. Design looks good, but not great, but if you know what you're doing I don't see why it's a problem.
You can't go wrong with JV-Link. This is the best purchase I've ever made with Joomla, along with JVvideo and sh404SEF. Thank you Niranjan again, you're rock!
"Absolutely perfect product!" says cristaxio, with a 5 star rating
Thank you to exist!
"wonderful" says email@example.com, with a 5 star rating
"Good Support" says Cigora, with a 5 star rating
JV-LD is a good component but to my sense the true advantage it is the support of quality and effectiveness, I recommend this component to all those that wishes to create a directory with a large choice of functions. Personally JV-Ld I consider it like a Version PHP Link Directory Script for joomla
"Exceptional Product and Service" says Mike Bonerath, with a 5 star rating
I have not provided a review before, but these guys at JV Extensions need to be highly recommended and supported for an outstanding product and service. JV Link Directory is absolutely outstanding in features and functionality and a must for any website owner or web designer.
Thanks for amazing support, service and great products!!!
"Absolutely great Support!!!" says Wojtek, with a 5 star rating
Amazing support!!! Thank you very much Niranjan for your time spending by solving my problems. I have already tested this component and this is the best solution for link exchanging! I've been looking and comparing for a long time. This is the best one.
"Good extensions" says Henrik Larsen, with a 5 star rating
I buy this extensions yesterday, and I feeling me home to use this good extensions, i will i near future translate the backend to Danish.
I started making a directory of links with exchange links with SOBI2 and Moset Tree.
I was not very satisfied because SOBI2 (which is a very good component) is more oriented address book.
Price difference between JV Link Directory (JV-LD) and Moset Tree did that I chose JV Link Directory (JV LD) since it is somewhat cheaper, because you can choose a shorter membership which of course makes it possible to test kompomenten,
I find the slightly confusing but the layout is easy to foresee.
It could be a good idea for the owner to do a demo site in the Administrator so you can see how it works before making a purchase.
"Great extension" says herve, with a 5 star rating
I bought this component there is one year.
I looked for a replacement component bookmarks for J! 1.5.
I started making a directory of links with exchange links with SOBI2.
I was not very satisfied because SOBI2 (which is a very good component) is more oriented address book
I just retested JV-LD since the passage GPL.
What progress. I expect certain features, such as import from CSV files, a finer grained fields in the admin interface, a possible translation in French ....
and the administrator interface is not ergonomic.
This is a good calling, good try
