EasyDiscuss also comes with free modules and plugins that works harder for you.
First and foremost, this is THE best question and answer forum solution available in the JED. I tried comparing this with few others but this one's far ahead out there... in fact, this extension sets the standard far higher for any joomla extension available today. I say this because, this has
+ Neat and clean front-end and back-end interfaces
+ Highly customizable to every details (developers have even given options for Akismet integration / ReCaptcha / Adsense integration / Pingomatic etc. all within its setting)
+ Integrable with common profile management systems e.g. CB, JomSocial etc.
+ Social integration options included (fb, tw, g+, digg... you name one)
+ Points/ badges
+ Notifications,e-mail (also crontab setup possible)
+ Customizable Likes, Accept this as answer (or reject) type features
+ and many many more.
Last but not the least, they have the best support people available - and I mean it. I asked them -
1. Customized feature - and they did it
2. Goofed-up something in the backend settings - and they fixed it
3. And all the responses were in an hour's time.
That's why I say, they set a pretty high standard for any Joomla extension out there.
It is also very easy to use.
When I needed the extension to do something slightly different, they made the changes to the code for me very fast. This was better than expected support. I highly recommend this component to anyone looking for something a little more modern looking than a traditional message board.
I really appreciate EasyDiscuss, this new generation of forums and concerning the support, personnally I would give 10 stars for the one I got this week.
You ask a question, you get a fast answer that gives you the solution to your problem. And they're so fast.
Thanks you very much.
For the component itself I just can say "Amazing!". It's easy to install, easy to manage, looks great, works out of the box what else to say. I've you're looking for a component where users can discuss under each other, this is is the component you need. This may sound as I am an employee of stackideas, but I'm not.
The support is thus even better as the component itself. After Installation of a new plugin (I have to mention that it was in beta state) I had some problems. The guys helped me out in no time and fixed all issues directly on my page... No action needed from my side.
Absolutely every penny worth!
the guys really know their job, are friendly and very quick, no matter if it's weekend or in the middle of the night - really awesome.
also they're open for new ideas and help if there are conflicts even if they were brought in by othere addons - usually other developers would say "this problem is from extension X - please go there" - not stackideas - these guys fix the issue so that your site is running - best decision I ever made. same goes to their other extensions as well ;-)
Well, dealing with you guys is just like that ad. (That's not the case with some other software.)
Your software is fantastic. Your after service so much ahead. And bug fixes, just work.
I added the fix and it just work perfectly, thereby again reminding me of the old Honda commercial :)
I really congratulate the developers,for their great effort PLZ KEEP UP :)
Thank you very much for the kind feedbacks! Greatly appreciated. The support for unicode aliases has been added in EasyDiscuss 2.0 which will be released soon :)
I purchased the extension and had an issue with the configuration which had nothing to do with the extension itself. The guys from the support were happy to solve my issue within minutes.
Cannot praise this product and their support enough. One can just hope they come out with more useful extensions - Thank You
Easy discuss is simple an easy to use, love this extension for Q&A it seems to be working great!
Another great extension from Stack Ideas!
Amazing all around!
If you are looking for something more casual than a forum this is a great option.
Support is quick and responsive. Great to see components with this level of design and configuration.
Their forum only had one post related to EasyDiscuss, showing how to translate EasyDiscuss into another language. I looked at the English language files installed with EasyDiscuss and I could see that the files contain the correct information (but the correct information is not displaying).
So I put in a support request. They responded "...I am sorry but we are still working on the documentation on EasyDiscuss...."
Furthermore, they request that I include my backend username and password. That seems to me to be a significant security risk.
If you are experienced with Joomla you may find such problems easy to navigate. In my case, I have only been using Joomla for a few months (but have been creating websites for over a decade) so my experience level could be part of the problem. However, I certainly expected that when I paid for a component I would at least receive a minimal amount of documentation.
I am really sorry for putting you into such hassles. It is most likely that there was some incorrect language format in one of the earlier releases. The latest release does resolve the language issues.
We normally request for the back end access if we can't replicate the same issues on your site. Nevertheless, I sincerely apologize for causing such an inconvenience for you.
If you are unsatisfied with the product, please do get in touch with us via firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll try to get things resolved for you.
Thank you very much for the kind feedbacks
