Community Builder has to be the most mature and robust extension I have ever used. I almost always include it in a membership site build

Ease of use

Learning curve is moderate, but a highly active forum and docs leave you in capable hands. You're never to far away from a solution!

Support

Exceptional! Highly responsive always eager to help, even if the issue is caused by another extension!

Documentation

Superb documentation. The manual is over 100 pages!

I used this to: Recommend to clients looking for enhanced membership or user account functionality. If clients are looking for this feature, CB is at the top of the list. The extension is super-stable.
