I would recomend this package to anyone who uses Joomla and wants to have users.
I would not mind paying for this component if it ment the development would speed up. Myspace is a pile of crap and there is no reason why there should not be a viable opensource alternative...
I would really like to see a comprehensive CRM and groupware add on!
And basically, you've got the very core of what you need for any Dotcommunity or Dotcompany. Whether you need e-store, forums, classifieds, yellow pages, blogs, photo album, pm, newsletter ... whether you need any or all (yes: all) of the above in any combination, any advanced usr mgmnt scheme starts with the very best winning team .. which, I'll say it again, say it out loud: CB + AEC + JACLPlus !!
So dearest and most valued (CB|AEC|JACLPlus) devs? Any chance on the three of you enjoying a close encounter of the pleasant and productive kind sometime? I would love to see you get together and can only imagine what you could accomplish. Probably something far more exciting than my wildest dreams I guess.
For now you leave me gasping, trying to get my breath back. Exhausted by the passion and still wanting more. Thank you thank you thank you.
Fare (meaning: Sail) Well, Greets, Dylan

Se dearest and most valued dev's? Any chance of you three getting together for some close encounters of the sweet and productive kind?
CB is the best tool, even at a higher price.
And as far as a donation link goes, it can be disabled from the admin in about 2 seconds (depending on your connection speed ;-)
I could not find where to shut down this part of the component so I think I will not use this for my site.
Thank you but no thanks.
I had a hard time figuring out how the tabs work - because they don't work well. User interface is not friendly and is not fully customizable.
Why does it have to be so inefficient and unnecessarily complicated when all I'm looking for is extensible, customizable and searchable user profiles?
Functions: 3 stars
Appearance: 1 star

User-friendliness: 2 stars
Support: 2 stars
Exactly what I was looking for. Simple to use and administer, yet elegant and powerful.
And, no I'm not one of the authors! I've worked with Drupal in the past, and Drupal has nothing to compare to this.
My only suggestions is to make it so one can approve profile images through the backend without having to go through the frontend module. The other, and it will probably come in due time, is to add Jim PM to their PM integration lists.
Great usermanagement tool, adds a lot of extended capability, very userfriendly, and a lot potential!
In development are some great (already (stable) working) plugins like for phpbb forum and galleries etc.
Takes over the usermanagement from joomla without affecting anything, cooperating perfectly.
Extend your user profiles, users can easily edit them theirselves. If preferred optional fields keep oversight of actions under userprofiles (like users' articles, posts, etc).
Adds a manageable memberlist. Easy to define extra tabs with info about the user like; a curriculum vitea; car-details; company info; software info; etc. etc.
I definitly would recommend it, especially for those who want to have more specialized usermanagement!
Since the stable release, we have been even more pleased. Of course you will never please everyone, no matter what you do. But this has to be one of the best if not the best addition to Joomla.
There are several things a Joomla site must not be without, and this is at the top of the list. It has so many uses. Keep up the good work! We are looking forward to using it for many years to come.
