    Welcome to an Honest Detailed Review of some socialengine plugins. I have been asked to review a set of plugins I have purchased and I would like to provide some feedback in hopes it helps developers enhance the product, as well as aid fellow consumers considering them for purchase.

    Full Slider:

    The Full Slider is one of the newer plugins developed by younet and just like many of their plugins, is beautiful and elegant. The slider is a fully loaded plugin with capability for both photos and videos that play on a loop and is feature rich with animations, such as fly in text with clickable text with hyperlinks. Also the video even supports audio in the slider as well so the videos have sound if that is something you want for your website. The slider has 3 sizes I believe but I personally think that if your website can afford the space and has a responsive layout, then the full width slider that covers the entire span of you page is by far the coolest looking one out there. If you are looking for a way to take the design and overall appeal of the home page to the next level, this is perhaps one of the easiest ways to do it. At this time I have no real complaints on performance, although I cannot verify how having multiple or longer videos would perform in the slider. While it comes in 3 size I would like to see some more styling options for frames, borders, colors and even text options if possible but that is more personal preference. There is more than enough available to make it look fantastic.

    Rest API:

    Ok There is nothing Glamorous about this plugin, I know I have this plugin and I know that it works, so there for I am satisfied haha. I can’t tell you to much more than that. I feel like this plugin can be rated on a pass fail test since it’s not hard to tell if it helped you accomplish what you hoped it would. In this case it receives a passing Grade.

    Video Channel:

    Ok Back to the fun stuff! If your network hinges on video than pair the video channel and the ultimate videos and you won’t be disappointed. Overall it provides users with a smooth and modern interface to showcase their videos in an easy to manage and user-friendly fashion. Similarly to the other plugins they provide, you can create a home page that displays featured videos, recently watched, top viewed etc. The thing I was most excited about was the playlists and they have a very modern YouTube feel, but this is where I also had some problems. I am not sure if this is just a bug or if it is an oversight, but the idea of playlists is that you start one and then it “plays the list” however I have yet to get a video to autoplay the next video. It plays through the first with no problem but then doesn’t start the next one and I know if it were me I would want an auto play feature so I don’t have to start every video in the play list. Other than that it seemed to do everything I would want without a problem.

    Metro UI:

    There is so much I can say here but I will try and be as concise as I can with my thoughts. Ok so this is my favorite template currently available for socialengine by far! I love the templates that are clean but this one has some pow and is great for community based networks that are more about the relationship aspect as opposed to video and photos. However I have had some frustrations at times with it although none have been deal breakers.

    Let’s start with the pros which I will put in a list fashion.

    What I LOVE:
    1. It looks SWEEEEET! Enough said.
    2. It is fast!
    3. It plays well with all younet plugins and most third party plugins
    4. It is fully responsive on all devices with interactive animations built in
    5. The built in widgets on the home screen make for easy information at a glance
    6. There is a lot of color control for the nav bar, buttons etc

    What still needs tweaking:

    1. The widgets in the home page are stationary, you have to use them all and there is no adjusting that or there will just be an awkward add widget space. The widget displays events and groups at random which are not tied to any of the social engine networks which feels like a bug. I would like to see some alternative designs to use only two or three or remove the slider to use the alternative full slider plugin. Overall there is a lack of customization options making it feel rigid outside the general colors.

    2. The implementation adds a metroui search bar that does not communicate with the SECore search so results from both can be accessed which is confusing.

    All in all if you like the design and the demo and were not planning on changing much other than color scheme, I think that this one of the best layout templates available and I am very grateful that it is available.

    Advanced Events:

    If you are having/hosting events on your network then this is a must. Don’t even think about it, just buy it because the basic events plugin won’t be enough and is so basic that it is painful. However there is hope! This advanced plugin is feature rich and works really well right out of the box! It offers great flexibility. This plugin is also supported in the mobile app which is a plus. The plugin ties well with the advanced groups plugin and allows you to create events for all users or tied into the groups and only those members in the groups can see them. I would like to see the option to display HD photos as the event cover photo. At this time the photos appear in a lower resolution and there are no resolution options available that I can see. Also My users are in networks but the widgets on the home page of the metroui are entirely random which means events by certain networks display which to me is a privacy issue. If that was fixed I would be a super happy camper.
