Application area

The component can be widely used on various types of websites where a competition with people voting is needed. These are, but not limited to:

  • Model agencies
  • Women / men orientated websites
  • Parenting websites
  • Educational websites
  • Music websites
  • Amateur Communities (cars, pets, flowers)

NorrCompetition drastically increases communication with website users, because voting and feedback increase visitors’ loyalty and encourage them to attract others to take part in voting. This also improves the dynamics of website visits.

Philosophy

NorrCompetition is a native Joomla! 3.4+ extension. The product has 100% open source code, does not include any encoded code fragments and also does not modify the Joomla core.

The main emphasis during the design of NorrCompetition was optimization and code quality, as well as matching the latest Joomla standards and features.

The main idea is extensibility, accessibility and flexibility. The structure of themes allows using the styles of different frontend frameworks such as Bootstrap2, Bootstrap3 and UIkit, override styles and layouts on a template level, what makes component integration in any third party Joomla template an easy task.

The goal is to provide to end user (integrator) a product that solves common tasks and can be easily integrated with other Joomla templates and extensions without the need of connecting own frameworks or libraries.

Photos disclaimer

Models’ photos that are used on the demo website are not part of NorrCompetition extension and are not distributed in the installation package. The photos that are available during sample data installation have an open source license.
