It's good, but it could use more...There is no community activity wall, like on Facebook..and it could use much more. Unfortunately, I left community builder. I finally went with a community plugin on wordpress, that was more like facebook.
I love joomla and I still use it on every site I have, I just wish they would push developers to improve their components. Or they will lose more people to wordpress, I know several who have.
CB is a VERY complete community component that is VERY sophisticated. CB offers great flexibility and scope of use when you understand how the component can be adjusted.
User lists and search functionality are great and NOT included in any other community component for Joomla in the extend CB offers it.
Support is excellent and FREE!
At this point, THANK YOU CB team for all the great work you have done and for the GREAT CONTRIBUTION to Joomla and community building, thank you.
My problem. I cant get the registration to work. Always "Db function reports no errors". The user is created in the joomla users but not in cb. I am busy with search a solution already 2 days cause now i really want to work with this great extension.
I am sure this bug is easy to fix and the problem is mine so five stars for this wonderful gift.
I installed it - carefully following the installment instructions and it works wonderfully. No glitches; no conflicts - just pure performance. I couldn't be happier and my hat's off to the team at CB for the fine product they created!
Expectations of the ease of install and configuring were dashed. Not recommended for anyone not willing to re-invent the wheel.:(

Unfortunately the last update (1.3) seems to be focused on let's see what we can break. My test site stopped working, presenting blank forms and error dialogs, especially on the frontend. I spend nearly eight hours working my way through things, and finished up having to remove a swag of modules and components, many not remotely related to CB.
Since I am now at the point of probably having to rebuild the site from scratch I'll be looking to alternatives for CB
Sorry to hear such a different story of all positive feedbacks we got on CB 1.3 this far, and understanding that finally it seems "not remotely related to CB" on your "test site" as you conclude. We are not be able to relate *any* single forum post or feedback from any user elsewhere to this experience with CB 1.3 (nor latest CB 1.3.1 which fixes all known bugs of CB 1.3, which were all minor).
Sorry that you decided to spend eight hours on your own, without community help, not browsing our FAQ (e.g our blank screen FAQ), forums, or request free support on our forums. Very frustrating for the very dedicated CB community to not have a chance to help another community member. Specially for a free extension with free community support. We would much prefer to be able to help you, but with literally no information on the errors you got and your environment, it's impossible. We invite you to use our CB forums for CB support - instead of the JED.
Thanks a lot for the massive job to all the developers!
Thank you! :)))
I used the 1.2.2 version. The code is hard coded and complex because it has been designed to work on MAMBO in addition to J!. That is the only reason why I am giving it 4 stars other-wise, its a 5-star component..!!!
But I guess thats a small price you pay for such functionalities. A BIG HUG from my side to the developers for doing such Fantastic work..!!!
Add to it the fact that the support forum is very well maintained and the fact that CB has the most number of 3rd party extensions available in comparison to its competitors. That tells you why CB is such a great extension to use..!!!
