Take a moment to check out the product demo-server under:

We provide the demo-server for testing purposes, where visitors can access the frontend and also the backend area. The important features are usually available on the demo-server, while some particular features including the payment plugins (if the extension in case has these features) are disabled.

Keep in mind that for our Joomla! extensions supporting Smarty templates, the display is fully customizable also through our own product templates, otherwise the display remains flexible and offers the possibility to be matched with the site template through the CSS files.

Please note that the demo-server is set on an hourly reset, meaning that any changes will be at some point erased and the initial values restored.

We offer our extensions without encryption, in order to offer maximum flexibility for each webmaster, therefore we cannot offer any trial versions. Without encryption, each webmaster can modify the code in order to suit their own particular requirements (detailed information under our Terms & Conditions).

For a better product insight we recommend to check the product documentation which describes in detail, all available features and settings of the extension:
