"Good, feature-rich extension" says Hekate, with a 5 star rating

Provides more options for selecting and showing relevant articles than Joomla's own module. Can be used as a module or as an article plugin. Ease of use: I was able set it up and running soon enough. Generally it's intuitive, and with good documentation if needed. For a free extension, the support is excellent. Developers respond, help, and provide solutions via a ticket system. Much appreciated! There is pretty good documentation available, that covers configuration, options, use, and you'll find most of your questions answered there. I used this to: Relevant items in a blog-type section. There is automatic thumbnail generation, option for a slide-box, responsive columns, easy config for styles/display, social buttons, integrations with other extensions etc. It's a feature-rich extension, and fully covered our needs

"Exceeds Expectations" says John W, with a 5 star rating

Exceeds Expectations - If i could give more than five stars i would lThe joomla components created by j-vextensions are of superior quality From sales to support they are second to none Download the frecomponents and see the feature packed extension an the paid ones are just as good.


"Great Extension" says Jim Hill, with a 5 star rating

Recommended - Excellent over functionality, easy to set up yet very flexible. We have a lot of extensions on our site but we did not have issues. Pretty easy to use, has a log of possible configurations between the module and plugin. Great Support. I opened a ticket due to a configuration question. They went over and above and looked at my dev site to get it working correctly. Very good documentation. A great value for money. I used this to: My corporate web site which is in the software industry.

"You just cannot go wrong with this extension" says Sunil Sinha, with a 5 star rating

The best in the category in my opinion. Loaded with features. Well thought-out extension. Straight out of the box, no need for a manual. I had a couple of formatting questions, Niranjan was able to resolve it within minutes. Really no need for a documentation but there is one just in case you need it. Absolutely worth every penny. I use this to: showing related articles (the choices are plenty) and to show End of the Page slider. Works like a charm

"One of the best Joomla extension on the market! " says Jed Medina, with a 5 star rating

It took me a long time to find an extension that really made a big difference in my website. I discovered JV Relatives and everything said about it is true. I really needed an extension that would allow my visitors to extend their stay and discover more articles. This extension is worth every penny. It works seamlessly into my site, and added that extra punch! Thanks for making this extension and I really hope more joomla users discover and use it


"Excellent extension; superior support" says Scott Joseph, with a 5 star rating

This extension does precisely what I had hoped it would do: it offers suggest reading for articles with the same tags. This keeps the reader engaged and helps to lower the bounce rate, important for SEO. It also inserts social media like and share buttons, which also helps drive traffic. After installation, another component was stacking up the social media buttons. I submitted a ticket to the programmer and got an immediate response for the solution. Elapsed time from ticket to fix: 70 minutes. you'll agree that is extraordinary support. I'm pelased to recommend this extension and its programmer.


"JV related articles - Works great" says Zoran Slavkovic, with a 5 star rating

This plugin works as described. Support is fast and provided to JV community via quality forum. This plugin can be fully customised so everyone can setup this under specific needs. You can control data, sections, categories setup and many more. Code is clear and advances. Timestamp is enabled. Thanks to JV relatives for this great plugin.


"Amazing Plugin Amazing Support!" says Ezra Kamer, with a 5 star rating

I never like to spend money on plugins since just about any thing you want to do you can get for free. I needed a plugin that did cross refrence linking. I have thousands of articles that needed to be cross refrenced that are in different sections. This was the only plugin that did want I wanted. I had to contact support because I was not following directions properly. Support pointed out what I was doing wrong and even fixed my problem for me. I never take the time to write reviews about anything really. But the makers of this plugin deserve credit where credit is due. Great plugin in and great customer support.


"Buy this for your site" says Kenneth Lund, with a 5 star rating

I bought JV-relatives (and also JV-contentlinks) for our sites and since then, we've had great results in search engine ranking and our bounce rate has gone donw. Why? Because these two components makes it visibly very easy for the users to read other parts of the site. When you're reading one article, JV-relatives shows the users, like, 10 other exciting articles and many people do read on. This makes your usres happier, Google-bot sees your bouncerate is going down and thus gives you better rankings because you have proved to Google, that your site has great content (if not, the bouncerater would be higher)! The support for this component is fantastic - Vinjay does a GREAT job and responds in a polite and nice way! I really support the JV-components and plugins!


"Very satisfied and great support" says Ron Cozby, with a 5 star rating

I can not tell you how nice it is to get what you paid for. Easy to install and setup and it does what it says it will do. The best part is the support. I had an issue, posted in forum and the same hour had an answer. Another time I posted a suggestion for a feature and on the next update they added it. Even though this review is for this extension. I would have no problem recommending any of their products. Great job and thanks!


"First rate support" says Ben Woodcock, with a 5 star rating

I downloaded and installed this plugin to help with lowering the bonce rate on my blog based site. I was attracted to it as it is promoted as working with the azrul 'myblog' component, which I use. I had several teething problems (which were not serious) and was very impressed with the prompt responses I received from the support guys. Both times I had a reply within minutes and the issue was solved quicker than I expected. The plugin is now working well and I am monitoring stats hoping to see my bounce rate fall.


"Works out of the box" says Mizu, with a 5 star rating

i was sometimes disappointed after buying a premium extension. This one is different and well worth the expense. Install, set the parameter and done. Very easy and reliable. I had few questions and the team answered competent in no time. I use it for a newspaper site with hundreds of articles, if you run a site with lots of articles - this is the thing you need.


"Brilliant Plugin, Brilliant Support" says Silke, with a 5 star rating

 In October 2008 I bought JV-Relatives and since then I am thrilled by this product. The setup ist very easy, there are many features and it works absolutely perfect. I highly recommend this plugin. The support is excellent, too. The Support Staff spent several hours on investigating a problem (it turned out that it had nothing to do with the JV-Relatives), even though it was easter holidays (!). Thanks a lot for your great work and great support!


"Brilliant" says Philip Roy, with a 5 star rating

This just keeps getting better and better. One of the most straight forward plugins to use, but it improves my sites so much. Well worth the low cost and fantastic for lack of complexity. The new options to help with customisation are great.
