Functionality

Great looking & working blogging extension for Joomla 3.x

Ease of use

Easy to use, organize, & post blog entries. But when upgrading from version 3.9.24 to 5.0.23, the installation would not go past 45%.

Support

Support is good as long as you give techsupport admin rights to phpmyadmin, ftp, & Joomla. I'd prefer not to & there was not enough diy info

Documentation

Documentation is fine for clean installs but the forum info on how to fix problems is poor. They need to explain how they fix a problem.

Value for money

Good but only if you are installing clean. I spent hours trying to get the upgrade installed. Reinstalled old ver then restored from backup.

I used this to: Technical and developmental blog listing changes to software I author or scientific data changes and updates.

Blogs that really are Easy!
