New version of RS-Monials (1.5.3) released today

August 23, 2010

Joomla Extensions


Hi all, today we released the new version of our RSMonials component. In the new version 1.5.3 we implemented much more possibilities. The new version features are:

  1. Previously many users emailed us that the captcha security is not too strong. So in this version we implemented one new well known Captcha Security Library “RECAPTCHA”. Now you can enable ReCaptcha Security in the testimonial form.
  2. In the admin panel now the multiple selection of testimonials are also possible.
  3. New attractive layout system is implement in this version. You can manage all Styles and CSS from the admin panel.
  4. New image upload features is also implemented. Now if you wish you can collect and display one picture of the “testimonial submitter”. You can manage the maximum allowed size of image uploading from the component settings section.
  5. Several other small changes are made throughout the script so this will improve the performance.

If you find any issue, or if you have any further query feel free to contact us anytime. Please find some quick links here:

      We have currently 2 kind of spam protection technique. One is the default captcha and the other one is ReCaptcha. If both not work for your website then currently there are no other option to use. We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

      It seems the “Temp Folder” path is not correct. Please check the “Global Configuration” section and set the “Temp Folder Path” correctly.

    Love this App. Nice Job. Is there an option I am missing to allow me to choose what is mandatory? I do not want to force clients leaving feedback to supply an email address. Only thing that I see right now. Otherwise, I may be adding this to my purchase list. I guess I can always code hunt and see if I can fix it myself.


    • Souvik Says:

      Unfortunately this option is not available currently. Will surely try to implement the same in next release.

    • Souvik Says:

      You can enable ReCaptcha to stop spam. Please do the following:

      1. Login to your Joomla admin panel.
      2. Go to “Components” => “RSMonials” => “Settings”.
      3. Then set the following settings here:

      a) show_captcha=true
      b) use_recaptcha=true
      c) recaptcha_public_key=YourAPIPublicKey
      d) recaptcha_private_key=YourAPIPrivateKey
      e) recaptcha_theme=YourChoice

      You can get your ReCaptcha API Key from here:

    I found this component very useful but I have great problem with making testimonials in my language (polish) – component changes special chars like ‘ąęć’ to ‘?’ symbol. I have UTF-8 coding on my site and hadnt had any trouble with it before…

    Love the component and module. Problem with module display in I.E. Text shifts to the right and only shows 25% of paragraph.
