First off when you purchase an extension with your money you put your faith into the developers that they will answer your questions pertaining to that extension. Not only is this a great extension to build a community of like minded people but it also has top notch support that answers your questions any time of the day. They say they have online and offline support but in all seriousness this team of developers id dedicated and passionate about what they do and that is put out top Joomla extensions. Highly recommended.

I've used all the community tools for Joomla and have recently just swapped from JomSocial. Support is fast and helpful and the tool has some amazing features that the others simply lack. Oh yeah... and it's loads cheaper that JomSocial.

I can't say enough about EasySocial and StackIdeas. The product is absolutely top-notch but their commitment to support is what puts StackIdeas in a league of their own. Worth. Every. Penny.

I was surprised by Easysocial. Have tried other community components but the others had plastic look. Easy Social is very professionally built and designed. Backend seems logical with all the adjustment options that are easy to use even for less savvy like me. Less knowledge in the technical does not mean you do not have the sense for the fine. Easysocial is simply perfect. I am 60 years old and is an amateur. I had some installation problems and ended up in a panic. The friendly Stackideas support helped me faster than lightning. Are you looking for a professional look and features as well as security in the form of good support then choose Easysocial.

StackIdeas is by far the best Joomla vendor out there. I have used their products on several websites for over 6 years and they function well. But more importantly, StackIdeas has tremendous customer support. They respond very quickly to tickets, many times on weekends and after hours. They keep me informed of what they are doing to my site, and always follow-up to make sure I am happy with the fix. I've used dozens of Joomla extensions over the years and have never had anything close to this level of service from any other vendor.

As for EasySocial, it is a new product and the documentation is still a little spare, but you probably won't need it (just drop StackIdeas a quick email if you do). I used the the other big social engine for many years and never really got it to work correctly. I had EasySocial installed and customized to my site within a hour. The only negative is that there are not as many third-party plugins available yet (like calendars, quizzes, etc.) so be sure to consider if you need any of those to be integrated with your social flow. Even then, you should definitely try EasySocial before any other social extension - I think the support and ease-of-use will far outweigh any other consideration.

EasySocial by far the best social component for Joomla yet... and more importantly the team at Stackideas has raised the bar so high with everything they do, that my goal is to run a 100% stackideas eco system. They are doing a phenomenal job at listening to customers and introducing features that there is demand for... reducing the need for third party plugins... and if something is a bit more of a niche, which results in third party developers choosing to pick it up and offer that feature for EasySocial, the team at Stackideas is always available to help ensure a certain standard of quality.

In all my years of developing sites with Joomla (and Mambo before that)... Never have I been so excited and grateful for a team of Joomla component developers.

I suggest you take a look at their forum to get an idea of how proactive and helpful their team is. EVERY single problem or question gets answered or solved with a great attitude, and if it is a weekend, and it takes a few hours to reply, they apologize for being slow.

I have owned EasyBlog and EasyDiscuss for a couple of years now, and I bought EasySocial back when it first came out. Words cannot express how grateful I am for the products they make, and the service they provide. They make all their customers feel like we are a part of their team. They involve us in every step of the planning. They constantly are seeking our feedback and acting accordingly.

As an Entrepreneur myself, I have to say, their standard of service inspires. I am constantly learning from their practices.

I recently installed EasySocial on a charity website, so we could create a community spirit. I encountered a strange problem when registering new users. I thought it may be un-solvable, but Mark and the team were relentless in solving the problem, despite taking many hours of their time. It turned out it was related to the plugin requiring users to change their password when first logging in. we turned that off and we were in business.

Every time I have a question the team are very quick to respond and I am pleased to say that no problem has gone unresolved.

I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this extension, which has a rich feature set, but mostly because I know it has a quality team standing behind it.

Really amazing products and customer service!
It is hard to describe how great these guys are and how their product keeps on improving, it seems almost weekly!

I have had several issues with the installation on my site, posted up a help request in the forum, and each time got both a quick response, and they actually fixed the problem for me! I can't say enough.

I was a bit worried with them being on the almost opposite side of the world, but their responsiveness is great.

The product itself is really, really advanced. It allows really seamless integration with Joomla, Kunena and several other extensions. Using Easysocial in conjunction with Easyblog lets you use your ES photo galleries as your source for photos in your blogs without doing anything more.

Just darn cool stuff here. :)

Easysocial, what can I say? Don't try it because you'll never want another community component. Great support, like a community into the community. Very pleasant and "efficace". I am using it since the beginning and I can't wait the next features.

Component Developers should follow StackIdeas model for customer support.

Just like what others are saying about StackIdeas you can count us as one of the happy customer.

Check out their forum to know it yourself.

As for EasySocial, it is still young but it has an outstanding features that other social component has not thought of especially in security and access.

Two thumbs up for Stackideas team. Check them out!

After reviewing other extensions and reading the reviews for the EasySocial extension, I settled on and purchased the EasySocial extension.

A most professional and outstanding extension indeed. I am currently utilising EasySocial in an online forum (alongside Kunena) and support for educators. We are suitably impressed with the capabilities and features the extension has added to our website.

It was reasonably easy to install and configure. Within 30 minutes I was up and running. The entire process of purchasing the extension through to the installation and the set-up was quite seamless.

Hats off to the developers on a great job! Well done and thank you!

This component rocks, and I have never seen better. Thanks to this social component things begin to happen for us. But even more important, the Stackideas team care a lot about their customers and the support is great and really fast. They think ahead and are constantly improving the component. A must have/buy.

I have developed websites using all of the ‘big three’ Joomla social network engines. I do believe that all three have their place, for instance, Community Builder has some really well developed and powerful features, especially with add-ons such as CBSubs (Joomla memberships and subscriptions), hence why I may still use it for at least one of my websites. Their support has always been good too, but, and this is a big but, Community Builder need some creative designers on board. The UI for their products and icons etc is just horrible!

JomSocial looks great out of the box, has a very mature ‘ecosystem’ around 3rd party products, but I was ‘spooked’ when they closed their forum some time back. It seemed like they were saying ‘just buy the subscription, but please leave us in peace’. Suicidal business move IMHO. They have since been taken over and the forum reinstated, so time will tell how things go there.

What of the new kid on the block, EasySocial?

I can sum EasySocial up in one sentence… If all of the best bits of Community Builder and JomSocial had a baby, that baby would be EasySocial!

EasySocial is young, energetic, and eager to learn and please. EasySocial makes me enjoy developing websites. It is simply a joy to work with. I have four websites planned for this year and EasySocial is going to be the backbone of all of them.

As for Mark and the rest of the team at Stackideas. The work ethic of these guys is insane! I don’t honestly know when they sleep. I’ve been in touch with Mark about various things, including improvements and suggestions over the last week or two and I receive helpful and informative replies from him at all hours of the day and night. As if that wasn’t enough, this is on top of him and his colleagues being in the middle of getting the eagerly anticipated 1.2 version of EasySocial ready for release.

Every post on their forum gets answered, and gets answered quickly, politely (non of this condescending, curt and intimidating nonsense seen elsewhere) and is signed of with a smile :-)

As for the 1.2 release of EasySocial, it is a HUGE update. I think Mark said on the forum that there have been something like 600 changes and new features! You know I said they didn’t sleep? Well, in the last three weeks, they have released four betas and one release candidate of EasySocial 1.2. The EasySocial community is very active and have supported the beta programme, reporting on bugs and feature suggestions etc. The good thing is that these guys listen. They fixed something like 300 beta issues in about 1-2 weeks.

Other Joomla developers, are you listening?

Sometimes I have to remind myself that EasySocial is just a few months old. You forget and think that you are working with a very mature product. That is the biggest compliment I can give these guys. Yes there are some things missing, but 1.2 addresses the most important ones, such as groups and I expect they will release a stable version in the next few weeks. They publish a road map here (google it), so you always know exactly which features are coming and when.

Development of EasySocial is progressing at an astonishingly rapid pace, there are lots of new features on the horizon. The ones I personally can’t wait for are Events, Paid Subscriptions and a built-in invite system, all due in the next 2-3 months! With events, I even made some suggestions about the ability to link events to Joomla articles via a plug-in and/or module and Mark took the time to understand exactly how I thought it could work and I’m sure we will see that excellent feature.

3rt party support is gathering pace, with Jreviews (my Joint favourite Joomla developer), SourceCoast, Simbunch, TechJoomla and many, many others having already integrated their own products with EasySocial. On top of having integrated some of their existing products, the latter are also jointly developing a mobile app for EasySocial, with Stackideas providing the UI design expertise.

Can it get any better?
