I needed some help with placement of the READ MORE link and Ross (the developer) was right on it with a quick fix!!
Excellent component. Excellent price. Excellent support!
When I had a problem with the site (of my making not jaggyblog) the support was outstanding.
I can thoroughly recommend it!
Some time ago I wrote a tutorial on how to use Joomla 1.5 as a blog, and when I got done I thought: this really IS too complicated. In order to get Joomla to behave somewhat like Wordpress I had to scout around for various extensions (some of which were no longer supported after I began using them.) It was a ton of work putting it together, and the only GOOD thing about all that: I really learned my way around Joomla.
So IMO, it's better to find a good Blog component and use that instead. I tried a few of them, free and commercial. This is the most impressive Blog component I've used. And yes, it's "commercial" but 5 euro is really CHEAP and well worth it considering all the time it has saved me from trying to make Joomla be a blog on it's own.
I installed JaggyBlog and it was already on the Menu and published when I clicked on Menu to set it up. What a nice surprise!
I'm very happy with this component.
Moreover I would like to prise support given by the developer. In my case at the very beginning I faced some serious problems trying to start JaggyBlog but Ross almost immediately reacted and corrected two or three files files. Thumbs up:)!
And "News / Latest" section
I installed this extention and start to add articles to Jaggy/Blog, articles start to show at News/Latest section also...
Time being I purchased it but it useles for me..
The user's enquiry has been resolved and was merely a parameter that needed to be selected in the "Latest Posts" module for JaggyBlog.
Thanks for your positive review.
This is an excellent, easy to use plugin and the support for a couple of initial issues I had were responded to and updated very quickly.
Simple purchase, download, install and setup. Takes only a few minutes at a time.
You will not be disappointed. Don't forget to make sure the timezone is correct within Joomla or it won't work. I didn't realize that until I emailed the company and received a very quick response.
Thanks for a great component!!!
I added this blog since I needed more than 1 blog on my website to keep material and categories separate and it was very similar in functionality to another, but with a streamlined backend.
Ross replied quickly.
If I could change one thing, it would be to use jomcomment as well as jcomment, but that is a want and not a necessity by any means. Its built-in comment system is very good.
This blog is simple to use and that is a big plus, especially if you need to train someone how to use it or to ad it to other websites.
The fact that you can use it more than once is a huge plus too.
From what I see, this blog is relatively new. I can tell because the component uses the sites folder and the date it was added was about a year ago. Often, extensions are a better deal during this period and so is the licensing.
It creates page titles to each blog entry that match the page title...just like it should and keywords can be added to any article.
I was told 1-2 months is a tentative completion time.
