I have been looking for an easy front end editing solution for my customers websites. Joomla's editing capabilities are easy enough for me, but not for the average business owner, who has no time to learn new things.

I was using MyBlog for some time, but always ran into roadblocks with the inability to upload photos, or use any editor I wanted.

I took a chance with EasyBlog out of pure frustration, and am so happy for this choice.

Everything out of the box worked as I had hoped, and it was very easy to edit the CSS to match my sites themes.

I did have one major issue with EasyBlog creating separate articles that would not lead back to the blog with a readmore or title link.

I went to the support forum expecting to not get an answer anytime soon, as I have with so many other extensions.

My forum post was answered within a few hours, and Jack hacked the code some to fit me needs.

He assured me this would be fixed in the next update and that I would not need to do anymore hacking in the future.

Now my site is working exactly as it should, with a much easier solution for my customer.

I will be using EasyBlog on all of my sites, and replacing MyBlog on all of my past customers sites.

Thank You Slack Ideas, Jack, and EasyBlog for taking care of your customers needs quickly and efficiently.

We decided to try out Easy Blog for a demanding Joomla 1.6 project and thought we should tell how that panned out months later. The install was quick and easy and the layout of the program very intuitive. In the first few days we had several questions and we received prompt, helpful and informative support each time. The Blog is a solid add on and as expected - easy to use and manage. Without doubt we made a great choice and we got a professional extension that can be used in mission critical environments. Thank you guys. You are part of the fabric that makes Joomla such a huge success.

Firstly I purchased this blog and CorePHP's Wordpress for Joomla at the same time after finding other blogs coming up short...

At the time of purchase Easyblog was at version 1.8 or something and despite it installing like a breeze, having a beautiful backend and being very intuitive to setup in about 3 minutes, it really annoyed me because "out of the box" I had never found a Joomla component with as many styling clashes as Easyblog with Yootheme templates and JCE and FCK editors.

However, the submission of a support ticket revealed the strength behind Easyblog and the company that makes it, Stackideas. I had a reply in less than thirty minutes and they had already gone into my site and put most things right with styling overides and changes. I managed to find more and they did those changes as well, and gave me complete list on how to make the changes every time I installed Easyblog on a new site.

Amazing service but I was still a little peeved that it clashed so much with Yootheme stuff and I would have to manually change quite a few lines of code on every install.

In use however, 1.8 was so far ahead of Wordpress, Zoo and everything else I had tried.

Nothing however prepared me for version 2 released a few days ago!

"Out of the box" the styling is absolutely stunning on all the provided themes, with the "default" and "simplistic" being superb for a slick and professional look that blends with anything. Also, no clashes with Yootheme, big bonus!

I showcased it to a current client the other day with some sample content on, as he wanted a blog and I wanted him to buy one...His reply..."OMFG that's amazing" (he already has a Wordpress blog. It's now being added to his site as we speak :)

Stackideas' support have shown me how to customise the blog template further just on the back of a simple question and I have also been converted to JCE from FCK into the bargain and I am one happy Joomla designer!

For me, their support is simply exceptional, and probably more importantly their attitude to existing customers is excellent. A day after I purchased Easyblog they announced via Twitter that they were selling it at 20% off as an Easter special for a limited period. I dropped them a message saying I felt a bit robbed, tongue in cheek, and I got a mega apology, an extra 3 months on my support package and also 12 months of their EasyDiscuss component for free. Try getting that out of Sky or Vodafone.

All in all, the component is outstanding and the company staff even more so!

Just bought Easyblog and at first it didn't work how I wanted it or thought it should work. I wrote to support, assuming that they would say "maybe in future versions." I was blown away that support actually sent back script modifications and did it all for me. Everything I asked for to customize it to my needs, they did. They weren't huge things but enough to where if they weren't made, I couldn't use it. Everything works great now, so I just wanted to share my positive experience with them as a company.

After spending money on one blog component, that didn't work or meet my needs, and trying out several more, I decided to try out EasyBlog. Boy am I happy with my decision. I integrated beautifully with my site, and community component, editors and more, has the same look and feel, that will keep my users engaged, and is easy to use. Had a small issue after installing, and support responded quickly with the solution that I could apply now with a fix for the next release. Th

I came looking again for a blog/comment solution for a site I'm working on. It was a toss up between EasyBlog and WordPress for Joomla.

I'm pleased to report my choice of EasyBlog was an excellent decision. The app installed easily and I was able to migrate in my posts with minimal effort. I still have a few bumps to iron out but I'm thrilled with this product! Thanks EasyBlog!

Though I'm a Joomla user since Mambo days, I'm a relative newcomer to this blog "thing". I got sweet-talked into EasyBlog because of a promotion and didn't really know what to expect.

I really can't compare with other blog add-ons for Joomla, but I know a good component when I see one. It's *immensely* configurable but not in a daunting way. All options are sensibly laid out and commented. I've managed to get up and running without even finding out out there was a manual. Not only is that unusual for an add-on as complex as this, it means full credit to the developers.

A Joomla addon is often only as good as its support. I did have an installation issue, which was fixed pretty well *immediately*, courteously and helpfully. Mega star rating for that!

I went in at the deep end with a commercial subscription, but if you can get to try out EasyBlog in any shape or form - free, restricted - whatever - I guarantee you'll not be disappointed!

Thank you! We did took quite a while to restructure our whole back end interface :)

Thankfully for a complete beginner, EasyBlog is actually intuitive to use. Best still, it's got so many features that it does everything I want it to. I've put in a few feature requests, and they've been made available. Wow!
Any problem that does occur, the support is so quick and thorough that I've actually had them apologise for taking 2-3 hours to reply!
I wanted a module to display slightly differently to it was, so they actually customised the code for me!
I would strongly recommend this, for the amount of useful features, intuitive use, and the amazing level of support.

I am currently converting a site from Joomla 1.0.13. While converting to Joomla 1.5 I realized it was time to get a new blog component. I surfed the list on Joomla's site and landed on Easy Blog. I must have sent over 30 questions to customer service before buying the product. They could not have been more helpful!! The staff is amazing. Once I purchased the product...the Easy Blog support team held my hand through the upload process and even converted my old blogs into Easy Blog! No issue, no worries and it was done in no time at all!

In addition to the exceptional customer support, the product is wonderful. It is easy, intuitive and chuck full of features even for a relative novice like me. When I needed some minor changes, the Easy Blog staff even furnished me with the applicable code.

If only everything on my website was this simple! 5 stars for a phenomenal staff and a fantastic product!!!!!!!

I recently set up a new Joomla website for my wife's new business and selected Easyblog as the extension of choice.

I'm not a programmer but found it really easy to add EasyBlog into the Joomla library and immediately started using it.

Had some questions and tech support has been super.

Highly recommend the program.

I have been a designer and using Joomla for 4 years. I have dealt with a lot of module and component developers and this one is definitely one of the best.

The component is top-notch, easy to install and set-up, and just works as described. The developer also strives very hard to keep the component up to date and releases new builds on a regular basis.

As if a component that works isn't enough the support received is something every business should strive for. I have had a few little issues with upgrading and the response time was quick, and they fixed the issue no questions asked. That is a sign of a company truly devoted to their product.

I look forward to seeing what else they come up with.

I have been designing web sites since 1998. I tried Wordpress and Easy Blog and I think EasyBlog is much better than any blog available. Also, their support is great. I sent two emails and they helped within 24 hours. I am not affiliated with them this is a very honest opinion. I really recommend using EasyBlog.

Easy to install, easy to use, but extremely robust and flexible.

This is THE BEST blogging tool for Joomla. Period! You found it.

Quick story about EasyBlog support.

1. I was trying to get it to search tags when using native Joomla search. I couldn't get it to work.

2. Searched their Forums. (Really nice forums, by the way). Nothing.

3. I opened a support ticked at 1:55 PM ET, asking if it was possible to search TAGS.

4. At 1:58 PM ET (3 Minutes Later!!) I got a reply saying, sorry not possible at this time. (Bummer) But asking me to be specific as to what I was after so that he was sure he understood.

5. I replied at 2:02 PM. Thanking them for getting back to me.

6. At 2:21 PM, 26 minutes after I opened the support ticket, I got an email that "apologized for taking so long to get back to me", and had a custom "search.php" file attached that fixed my problem.

They added a feature in 26 minutes!!

Bottom line. BUY THIS Component!!! You will be very happy you did.

I wish every company everywhere had this level of support. Nothing is more frustrating working on something for days and feeling like you are all alone with your frustrations. I have successfully used EasyBlog on two websites and with the help of the support team have pushed the boundaries of what it can do.

They come out with frequent updates and just came out with 2.0 beta, which I am very excited about. The support team listens, they help, they are responsive, and the product is very easy to use and works.

GREAT product, GREAT support.

Thank you! We try to make our products as user friendly as possible allowing any non technical person to easily customize their blogs for Joomla!
