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.
You will not need to know any techy stuff to install it, your clients will have no problems with using it.
Support for this externsion is Excellent. Ross replyed to my email straight away. Issue was not on blog by my server but he updated my blog to latest version advice what to ask my Host provider to solve the issue... I mean seriously - I could not expect any more!
I really recommend it to everyone who wants to run blog on his Joomla website!
Many Thanks to the creator.
Joomla had what I wanted in a content management system, but was missing a blog component. After searching the Joomla site, I found jaggyblog.
The first thing that impressed me was jaggyblog's main website. It combined simplicity with a great design. Before purchasing the software, I viewed the installation demo on the homepage.
That demo made it crystal clear exactly what a beginner to Joomla such as myself would need to do to get jaggyblog up and running, and configured for my new Joomla site.
The installation went exactly as described in the demo at the jaggyblog homepage. I took advantage of a couple of the free downloads offered there, and have incorporated the Blog Categories into my new Joomla site as well.
I have had one question about a modification to the source code of jaggyblog, which I submitted to Ross at jaggyblog support on a Sunday afternoon. By that evening, I had an answer to my question, implemented the recommendation, and am set to go.
In my opinion, the combination of Joomla PLUS jaggyblog (for those wanting a blog capability on their site) is BETTER than any other option I tested with strictly Blogging software.
My static pages are completely independent of the blog section, which was the most important feature of jaggyblog for my use.
Discovering Joomla was a pleasant experience for me. The addition of jaggyblog to Joomla completed the experience in a manner which was much better than I had expected.
I highly recommend Jaggyblog to anyone searching for a very reasonably priced blog addition to their Joomla site. One of the few programs I've purchased where I've felt I actually got MORE than my money's worth.
Thanks for the great application!
Hi there. I strive to reply to all emails within a reasonable time. The only reason why you might not have had a reply is if somehow your email didn't get to me.
Hope you are still enjoying what JaggyBlog brings!
I used the default template and it looked great on my site. I love the Tags feature! Truly well worth it!
I had several questions and Ross from JaggyBlog had replied with perfect answers I was trying to find within an hour.
Great service, Great blog component = Happy Joomla Customer
Thanks very much again!
I haven't had a reason to regret it yet. Getting started is quick and easy, it does not have a boatload of options, but it has everything you need for the usual blogging. What REALLY shines is the customer service: Being virtually a Joomla newbie, I had to ask the author several times for his help - his answers came quick (usually within the same day!), were precise and easy to understand. I would highly recommend JaggyBlog for any Joomla! beginner and for anyone who just wants a convenient blog with the function Joe Average needs (Tags, RSS, Captcha, comment notification, comment management.)
Great job, JaggySnake!
I had a minor problem with the install, but I got fast, helpful service from the developer.
This blog is a real sleeper. When people find out about it, it is going to be #1.
The service and support is second to none, when ever I had a question I got an answer or a solution only 2 hours later!
I really recommend JaggyBlog!
Simple to create entries using joomlas own article catagories and takes from the sites own template for aethestics with no mucking about!
Support is great, there was a problem with the comments not showing but an email or two later and a new download was up with a fully functional component!
Great stuff and many thanks to Ross for staying up late to find a solution to my problem!
