Easyblog is a breeze to use on the back-end. Have a blog up in seconds. Multiple themes to choose from to match your sites color scheme.
Easyblog developers were more then helpful to assist me with some custom mods. Great product, I frequently check with StackIdeas for new components.
When you take the time to look at all the features that come packed within EasyBlog, and begin using it, you'll likely have one of those "Where have you been all my life?" experiences and never want to go back to any other blogging extension out there. One of the most notable shining points about EasyBlog is the customization and control it gives it's users. EasyBlog puts you in control of every aspect of your blog, and seamlessly integrates with the rest of your Joomla site.
For me, I was sold on it when I witnessed the perfect integration of EasyBlog into not only my Jomsocial network, but Alpha User Points component as well. If that doesn't put the icing on the cake, it offers integrations into Facebook comments, Intense Debate, Disqus, Jomcomment, Jcomments, RSComments, and the list goes on. If I were to list all of EasyBlog's amazing features, this review would likely be pages long, so I'll save some hidden treasures for you to discover yourself.
If social networking your thing, the EasyBlog guys have you covered. Amazingly enough, they've squeezed into EasyBlog many of the top social networking integrations that every website needs to keep growing, like Twitter, Facebook, Google, Digg, LinkedIn, Stumble Upon, and more. If that doesn't bring out your inner geek, EasyBlog even allows you to blog remotely, and supports TweetMeme integration. Need I say more?
Sure, there are great extensions out there, but we've all come across an extension or two, whose support left much to be desired. Having good support for an extension can make it, or break it for website owners who are trying to use their software. Fortunately, the EasyBlog support team has not let us down. In the very rare chance that you do have a problem with EasyBlog, their professional support team will quickly get your problem solved, and work with you to make sure your experience with their product is as enjoyable as can be.
Not only is EasyBlog packed full of features, integrations, and a amazing support team, but unlike the majority of other extensions that take some getting use to and setup time, I was able to start using EasyBlog within only five minutes of having installed it. Looking back on everything and my experience with this nifty piece of software, I would have to say that it's won first place in my extension arsenal, because it not only lives up to it's title of being an easy blog, but offers so much more.
My blog went from ugly and barely usable to sharp and simple to use, with great social media integration and a ton of nice features!
This makes it easy for bloggers to use around the country and not have to log in to the confusing (for new people) Joomla backend.
Support has been fantastic! Always helpful and they seem like they enjoy helping which is refreshing!
The support team is fantastic. They go above and beyond all that is needed. Very quick to respond and thorough. The team takes in opinions and ideas and looks to implement as needed into their product.
I wish every commercial extension could be this slick. The few minor issues I have had (almost all caused by myself) were solved by the support staff who replied very quickly.
Honestly can't fault the component, the support, anything. Fantastic.
Very easy, good looking, with many features. Reliable not like K2 what is unquestionable but the reliablity and support(less) made me fed up.
Not the case with Easyblog. Not only reliable but the support is first class and an exaple for everyone!
Strange because I paid for it but really I feel grateful for this component, becuse makes my life easyer.
I pay the attention of the template developer to pay an attantion to Easyblog.
If I may I offer Easydiscuss as well, what is great for me as lightweight forum component. In fact Q&A component.
If i take time to write this review it's not only because this extension is great and it's doing what it's supposed to do, but it's also beacause i have never seen such a dedicated technical support. Sam, Jack and Terrence have always answered very quickly and helped me above the extension : in my joomla configuration and other extensions so the all website is doing great with easyblog.
This technical support experience is truly a plus for an extension which is probably also one of the best I am using.
Thanks to the easy blog team !
Other extensions takes 30 hours to get a darn response, these guys go all out to help. Even today, on Saturday, they responded twice within minutes!
I love companies like these, they stand by their product unlike some others who initially do good then their services goes from bad to worst very fast.
I highly recommend this product to anyone.
But easy doesn't mean less features.
I have a blog site and a fan page on Facebook. All blogs are automatically posted to that fan page with a thumbnail if chosen. Comments can be made with your facebook account. Easyblog is not limited to facebook, twitter and other social media is fully supported.
Support is great. I had a problem with integrating a third party videocomponent's videos. So I posted it to their forums. Within two days my problem was solved, They gave me the right code and told me what to do to enable the videos and wich plugin I had to download.
I can only say that this component is worth every penny.
Upon purchase I discovered it is was also:
Very easy to get up and running.
Intuitive enough for non techies to use without training (I can't keep them off it).
Pretty, a number of good looking templates were available.
...and that was before we talk about support, if your site is anything like mine you will have a number of 3rd party extensions running, and reality is when you want to seamlessly integrate a major component such as a blog not all these disparate parts will play nicely together. I had a few teething issues, nothing major, but small things that annoyed me (even though the public may not notice), the Easyblog team could not have been more helpful or responsive, in a matter of an hour or so, all my issues were satisfactorily addressed, even if the cause of some of them did not lie with Easyblog, I have paid a lot more for much worse customer service. For this reason alone, if your serious about your website, Easyblog really is an excellent choice.
Also they're open for new ideas and help if there are conflicts brought in by othere addons - usually other developers would say "this problem is from extension X - please go there" - not stackideas - these guys fix the issue so that your site is running - best decision I ever made. same goes to their other extensions as well ;-)
After a few weeks I had some questions about RSS which I could not get to work, I received replies immediately 3 times in a row. Also the support forum is excellent.
I am very impressed.
