The only time I had a problem with easyblog was the installation part. It only works if I upload the file in the /tmp dir extract it there, then installation works.
In my opinion this is the best blog tool available for Joomla. Rather than cobbling together templates, extensions, modules, etc. to come up with a blog site. Easyblog has done all of that for me. Worth every penny!
Thank you very much for your honest feedbacks! If you have any problems with the installation, feel free to contact us firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be glad to be able to assist you on this and give you a full report on the problems!
By far the best support experience I've had in years! Way to go Jack and the team at Easy Blog!
Thank you very much for your kind feedbacks!
I'll be the first to admit that I try to find the most affordable (preferablly free) solutions, however some things you just can't skimp on.
After working with WordPress blogs, I was so very disappointed when I tried adding a blog to my joomla website with the choices I had. I discovered that there were not many choices available and those I found were very complicated in configuring them. Once configured, after many wasted hours, they were just plain sad in appearance.
The EasyBlog install was very simple and customer services is incredible! All my questions were answered very quickly! (I like that!) I highly recommend EasyBlog so much I signed up to become an affiliate! It is definitely worth the money. For a few dollars, you get much fewer headaches and a professional blog for your website!
I am really glad that EasyBlog was able to help you develop your blog sites and Thanks once again for your great feedbacks! Appreciate it a lot.
Not only is the product extremely good value for money packed with features not found in other comparable products, but the level of support set a standard for others to follow.
If you are considering buying a blog package, I for one would recommend EasyBlog.
Thank you very much for your great feedbacks!
Thank you for your great feedbacks!
I have this blog running on my Woodlands Ad Agency website with Twitter, Facebook, and Feedburner integration turned on and it couldn't be any easier. If you have any needs for blogging - EasyBlog is one of the best blogging applications to date!
Thank you for your honest feedback, I appreciate it a lot!
Thanks for the reviews!
I really like Joomla but the blogging capabilities are lacking. I needed a solution and Wordpress was not an option.
I decided after months of research to go with Easy Blog. I figured for the nominal fee if it didn't work at least I was not out a lot of funds....
Well I bought and installed it. It seemed to work right out of the box but then I had some frontend editor issues. I was trying to get an autosave feature installed through a new editor and that's when I noticed the problem. I filled out a support ticket and in no time I was in communication with the company and in less than 12 hours it was fixed.... and it was not really an Easyblog issue but then fixed it for me and told me exactly what they fixed and how they fixed it so for future upgrades I can modify the necessary files myself!
Awesome support and great feature filled extension!
Two Thumbs up!!
If your looking for a all-in-one blog extension for Joomla, look no further!
Thanks for your in depth reviews!
The blog extension is very nice, it has all the bells and whistle you could ask for.
kudos to the team
Thanks for your great reviews!
Well, within a few hours they had answered so many of my questions, fixed my stuff ups, got it running beautifully. When I asked how to change a particular feature, I got a response almost immediately ghat it wasn't a standard option, but that they'd gone in and altered it specially.
So impressed, it's doing exactly what I wanted, and the support is brilliant.
The component is very easy to install, although I had to do it manually because Joomla FTP Layer + Shared hosting didn't work very well together. Once FTP Layer was turned off, it is a great extension, user-friendly and powerful enough to meet enyone's needs.
Support was nice and helpful. Very good value for your money!
Thank you for the reviews!
Thank you very much for giving us a chance to serve you!
We're deploying this extension on a community geared towards photographers. Installation was as easy as it gets, and administration is simple and straightforward. With very little effort, our members are now contributing to our site's content while building their own audience (which in turn becomes our audience).
The main component is flexible and includes many features that are usually only seen on full-fledged blog applications like WordPress. It's easy for all your site's members to associate their blog with their Twitter/Facebook/Feedburner/etc accounts so all updates get broadcast automatically. The available modules are convenient for featuring your members' blog posts throughout your site. And integration with popular community extensions like Community Builder, JomSocial and AlphaUserPoints is a welcome addition.
There are still some minor issues that need to be improved. A more seamless integration with a Joomla site's appearance would be welcome, for one. But these minor issues are all being worked on by the developers, and progress with each release looks fantastic.
One point that might discourage some potential customers is the price. This extension isn't free. However the support we've gotten for that price has been outstanding. Every time we come across a problem, there's someone there to help us. Whether on the forum, via email, or through their support ticket system, customer support is top notch and worth every penny. In light of this, I consider the price a bargain.
StackIdeas recently introduced a lower-priced "Community" edition of this extension. While I applaud the concept, I think the price being asked is a bit much. It's almost the same price as the regular version. The word "Community" itself kinda implies "free", so maybe that wasn't the best thing to call it. I think they'd attract a lot more potential customers if they offered this edition at half the price of the regular version, and called it something that doesn't imply "free".
In the end, we're very happy with the choice we've made for our community, and we look forward to seeing what StackIdeas has in mind in the future for this extension.
Thank you very much for the feedbacks and we'll definitely look into our subscription scheme.
I would recommend this software to anyone. And would gladly by it again!!!
Thanks for your support! You made our day :)
Thanks, simplicity is what we have in mind!
I highly recommend this extension because of the great support, ever evolving quality in their software, and our client's satisfaction!!
Thank you very much for your feedbacks!
Installation was straight forward and the amount of customization to the template was limitless. I was able to easily integrate this blogging tool into the overall look and feel of a client's website .
Support was prompt and able to quickly fix one minor issue I had (which was that the default Joomla! search component was pulling blog items that were non published).
Easy Blog installed and worked right out of "the box". No issues, tons of features and integrations (twitter, facebook, addthis, buzz). Not hard to set up and there are several themes to choose from.
I did Not need my programmer to edit, tweak or fix anything. But its always good to have one, just in case.
