I'm happy to join with so many users and reviewers of EasyBlog and submit an Excellent! rating. Wow, I am really amazed at how good this component is. I've worked with core Joomla and K2 for my blog and considered EasyBlog for 2-3 months before committing. I had a number of questions before the sale and Stack Ideas responded so quickly. My only regret is not having committed to EasyBlog sooner. Installation and configuration went so very well and after spending a day reviewing settings, writing a first post, testing and tweaking, I feel I'm already very competent and comfortable with the software. The EasyBlog Control Panel is so well done and very powerful and EasyBlog integrates into Joomla so seamlessly and works absolutely flawlessly. Works great with core Joomla users and authentication, too.

Wonderful product and I'll be using it everywhere I need a blog. Thanks, Stack Ideas!

We wanted to implement our blog within our own Joomla site a few months ago and after careful research chose Easyblog as our component.

Up to that point I'd avoided paid components, and this was the most expensive extension we bought, however it was definitely worth it. The extension is easy to integrate and easy to customise with a little bit of CSS know-how (this was my first site and I managed it!).

Above all though, the support is excellent. I had a few questions at the start about functionality which were answered promptly and helpfully. More recently, we've been having issues with our template which caused a few layout problems (caused by our template not the Easyblog modules I might add). After months of trying to get the template developer to fix it in frustration I contacted Easyblog who fixed the issue in the template within a day - very much going above what is necessary.

So if you want an easy to integrate blog component with excellent support, I thoroughly recommend this!

After implementing scores of sites with blogs, trying core Joomla articles, then ZOO Blog, we find that EasyBlog really does a great job of offering what most site owners have come to expect with a blog tool. It is especially useful for multiple bloggers on a site and for conversions that include WordPress blogs. The WP blog migration works beautifully.

Best of all, though, is the support at Stack Ideas. They truly strive to meet the needs of their customers and are the best we've experienced in the Joomla world!

This is my first review, ever, of a Joomla extension. I felt compelled to write about my experience. I purchased EasyBlog for my site. I am a novice Joomla administrator and found the installation very simple. I was able to create some basic blogs but needed some additional help.

I emailed Stackidea support and they were very responsive, even over the weekend. In fact, I emailed several times with questions and their support people offered to login to my site and assist. Five minutes later my change requests were completed. I am not sure it gets any better than this.

So, aside from the product features and functionality, support is top notch.

I highly recommend.

This is my first website I ever created and I just enjoy to set up my blog. It's so easy to do it, specially when the support is so receptive to my requests. Extension appart, the support team is really the key of success even for users with low skills.

I have been using EasyBlog on my website for 3 months now and I cannot believe how good it is as a product and how fantastic their support is.
The product is very intuitive and easy to install and configure. And the best part? If you get stuck then you can just send EasyBlog an email and their very friendly staff answer any questions within 24 hours. I am one very happy customer and love the EasyBlog software on my website.
Well done guys and keep up the good work.

I often forget to leave feedback for Components but I felt i needed to for this one just to say how much of a powerful tool this is for blogging and so user friendly aswell

I think its a little unfair that someone gave it 1 star for a mistake which they made (and i believe EasyBlog helped them out with it too) but there you go!

this has more Components which are compatible with it and its easy to integrate with social media sites

this has to simply be the best blogging tool for Joomla out there i'd be very surprised if anyone found anything better...

I have been using Joomla for three years and have installed many plug-ins and Components. I felt compelled to write my first review after receiving such great support from the staff at EasyBlog. I manage (at the moment) two websites that have EasyBlog installed. On the first I had an issue and the staff responded almost immediately by fixing the issue. On the second site I have had to get my hands a little dirtier and the staff have responded professionally and courteously to all issues. Keep up the good work guys.

I started using this blog component not knowing how it would be ... It is by far the easiest blog to set up and has the best features I've seen. On top of that, their customer service is amazing! I had some customization questions and they got back to me in a timely manner. VERY PROFESSIONAL!!!

I have to say this is my first exposure to StackIdeas and EasyBlog.

I'm a seasoned web professional. I've worked in times past as a internet technology director for a Fortune 50 corporation and I have been a product manager for SaaS and cloud services software that supported regulatory compliance needs for big banks and credit unions as well as the internet security space.

After reviewing all of the blogging software that works with Joomla I have to say all of the 5 star reviews you read about this product are valid. Any other review contrary or less than 5 stars appear to me to be either planted by competitors or are people that have very specific problems to their own use (or miss use) of the product than truly speaking to the product itself on the whole.

EasyBlog is practically flawless when it comes to integration with joomla, integration with many 3rd party tools like Jomsocial, Community builder, etc... and Integration with social media is a breeze.

Taking into account that everyones setup is different whether it involves their server setup or Joomla configuration there are sometimes small bumps in the road. THIS IS WHERE THESE GUYS REALLY SHINE. SUPPORT IS FANTASTIC!! SUPPORT CAN MAKE OR BREAK A PRODUCT AND COMPANY. STACKIDEAS HAS HIT A HOME RUN!

From my own personal experience and from what I read from other users on their forums StackIdeas goes above and beyond when it comes to supporting the small hiccups that may happen from time to time. Often troubleshooting 3rd party software or templates to ensure they work with EasyBlog and their other products.

If a blogging component is what you need for your Joomla site then look no further.

I installed Easyblog version 3.0 onto a website a while back. For a long time I haven't been able to figure out why this site has been chewing through vast amounts of bandwidth with only a moderate number of visitors indicated in Google Analytics. Today I discovered why.

Trackbacks! Tens of thousands of them which have been added by SEO 'spammers'. And I never even noticed them before, even after looking closely.

Of course this has had disastrous consequences for my SEO, negating all the time spent building new content. I wonder how many other users have become unwitting "linkfarm hosts" in this way.

I've discovered I failed to select the option to not except trackbacks in the settings. Now it's going to take hours to delete all these trackback spam links, thousands of pages displaying 100 trackbacks at a time. (I can't delete so many trackbacks at once without crashing the site.)
Owner's reply

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to post up a review.

EasyBlog by default comes with Trackback disabled and we would probably assumed that you have turned this feature on. We can't really do anything much about "spams" as this is way beyond our control but we do have integrations with Akismet that helps with filtering trackback urls as well. You should turn this on by default :)

As for removing the previous spam entries, please do get in touch with us and we'll be glad to help you resolve this.

Thanks again!

At first glance you are quite amazed by the functionality and features of this product. But easyblog is a really good example of software developers fascination with features and functionality over usability. As a result of all the features and functionality piled into this product its usability, due to its complexity, makes it almost redundant. I am astounded that the developer hasn't considered to sit down and write a comprehensive user manual for this product. Really there is nothing - which their user support team admits. I give an example. To insert an image into a blog. There are perhaps 3/4 ways to actually do this with an enormous amount of permutations and parameters to select. But not one piece of documentation to guide the user. I used their support desk which was responsive but they have been unable to help me understand how their product works.

I should also point out that easyblog does not seem to work well with templates from Rocketheme. For example, the standard search module in these templates Rokajaxsearch does not integrate with easyblog.

If your requirements are modest then perhaps sticking to standard functionality in joomla or K2 is the answer and save yourself £50. Perhaps easyblog is more geared to websites that the only requirement is blogging. So in other words a one stop shop solution?
Owner's reply

Hello Paul,

Firstly, thank you very much for taking the time to write this review. Greatly appreciated!

Most of the features that has been submitted by our users has been added into the extension and by default you don't really need to perform much configurations unless you want to customize the output of the blog.

I also would like to beg to differ that it does not work well with Rockettheme. We have thousands of customers that runs on both EasyBlog and Rockettheme :) If you have any styling conflicts, please do write to us and we'll be glad to help you solve this.

Thanks again for taking the time to post this!
