Jom Social


Posted on 30 April 2015
Functionality

I am using this extension to build a site for people with a disability, and I have to say it is awesome and exactly what i needed.

Ease of use

With a bit of Joomla Knowledge it is very simple to get up and running, lots of options and custom settings, completely configurable.

Support

I haven't had any need to contact support as I haven't had any issues that I haven't been able to sort out, the Forums are very good though!

Documentation

Depends on your ability, I find the documentation easy and simple. and have only had to refer to it a couple of time.

Value for money

EXCEPTIONAL, I really don't know how they can make a component like this for the price, considering R&D and staff costs.

I used this to: I am working on site for people with a disability, where our organisation can have full control of privacy/monitoring etc. We want our clients to be able to communicate and share safely in a friendly environment without the risk of being patronised. Thank God I found Jomsocial.

Functionality

It does the basics but inflexible. Want strict security or add-ons like dating, not here. You can hide profile info but not memberlist info.

Ease of use

I had to pay someone to install it, but it was from an older version and had issues with upgrading. Not sure if it is a clean install.

Support

Seems support on avg takes 1 day per question or reply if not longer. We had a lot of issues and took us a long time to get it resolved.

Documentation

Nothing more irritating than some greedy company that only shows the user manuals if you keep paying. I paid, I deserve to see the docs.

Value for money

OK. The support is not so great. The documentation is not available after expiration. Security is an issue. Basic additions not available.

I used this to: Social niche community. If I knew that this social software did not have the ability for dating add-on, that there is no way by default to hide your memberlist or allow members to be friends by default, etc. I probably would have looked elsewhere. Very limiting design, but works.

Functionality

So many features, for web admin to work with. Good control of every aspect of social network powered by it.Good compatibility with Joomla.

Ease of use

Good admin control panel, every option is well documented and explained.

Support

Level of support is on really professional level with quick responses . It is excellent!

Documentation

Every aspect is well documented and explained, with documents and videos on their support channel.

Value for money

Worth every cent.

I used this to: I use JomSocial on my website as part of tech magazine/entertainment and educational site.

Functionality

Seems like it CAN do a lot, although initial configuration is surprisingly difficult. At this point I am not really sure what it WILL do.

Ease of use

Seems to want to replicate Facebook, and does a mediocre job of it. It might be better if the author let JomSocial go in its own direction.

Support

Hit and miss. Some response have been quite fast, others taking days. Seems like they lose interest after a while.

Documentation

Plentiful! But not always for the latest versions of Joomla, JomSocial, and the partners with which they integrate.

Value for money

At this point I would have to say poor. The package I bought was very pricey, and so far I cannot use it as described and expected.

I used this to: Wanted to use it for a personal opinion website that has used myriad solutions over the past 15 years. Unfortunately, I may have to resort to using a more mature and more stable platform.

Support - rather slow


Posted on 22 December 2014
Functionality

At first view, it looks straight and easy. There are many functions. Create and manage groups, albums, events and so on is easy.

Ease of use

Anybody can handle frontend without reading any manual. Backend seems rather plain, but settings sometimes are hard to find.

Support

Support is not dedicated. They took 4 months to understand a bug, that showed private pictures in the public stream.

Documentation

Documentation is okay. They explain a lot and most of us should understand the way, how it works. I think, a printable version is missing.

Value for money

Support is rather expensive. In my eyes you pay for beeing beta tester. Resolved problems are not published in download versions for months!

I used this to: At the moment I use it as community on my site especially for handling groups and give people the opportunity to load pictures up, comment, like and so on. I nearly finished the change to EasySocial. It is more important, but support is great.

I had wrote an extremely long review but my laptop shut down so that sucks xD Anyways it's a great extension that I highly recommend!!!


Registration problem


Posted on 13 September 2014

I paid good money for the PRO version but ended up having severe problems with the registration routine. After one week and 8 support tickets the publisher iJoomla acknowledged it was a bug that prevented email verification of registered users to go out as in the regular joomla registration routine. I therefore had to apply a hack to circumvent the JomSocial registration. The iJoomla support was helpful with other issues hence the avarage rating. So if you have a for-members-only site beware or wait untilthey have fixed this.


Very good Support


Posted on 21 August 2014

its not easy to build a community site, but the support of jomsocial team is one of the best that there is. and jomsocial is very good component.


I registered for the PRO version and after 1 week uninstalled it again:



LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY;

If you like to build a community site and you are an experienced programmer and you agree with JOMSOCIAL workflows, then this package will suit you.



If you want an integrated community in your website and you don't want to hire a developer this is not the choice to make.



PRICING:

There is no free evaluation version available to try. The demo version is a JOMSOCIAL version only, that's why you don't see the difficulties. You will find little non payed addons, the payed addons often are buggy. I noticed that also that after payment, a payed developer is rcommended.



MULTI LANGUAGE:

JOMSOCIAL only support english, they claim multi language possibillities, but again, alot of programming and the language packages on their forum, are third party (read users) packages wich often don't work and are not complete.



LEVEL OF SUPPORT:

The support on their site is fair but slow and often you get an answer that this is too comples and you have to live with it because this is core jomsocial. Also explaining an issue takes alot of time (due registration requirements)



MY USAGE:

I wanted to have a simple user registration where users could edit their own profile and group communication. If ionly installed all the features, i diabled standard JOOMLA features, i used only the JOMSOCIAL template (for the whole site) and i used no MULTI LANGUAGE, i had a kind of facebook ducplicated website. That's why i uninstalled it again.


Jomsocial has been great and served me very well for the last 2 years. Despite this, I am now drowning in spam signups.



With just Joomla, the sign up process I can enable captcha, but not Jomsocial. I have paid for an Aksimet subscription in desperation as the team recommends, however this has not curbed the sign up spam issue.



Until we can have a simple captcha work on sign up, I am putting this on ice.

Google recently announced that your Joomla loading speed will be a deciding factor in calculating your page rank. You know that a high placement on search engines is absolutely essential to your website’s success. There’s little point in having a beautiful, well-designed website if nobody can find it. Put Your Site Speed First Site speed is often an afterthought in the development process. It needs to be front and center. Our new module allows you to stay on top of your site’s speed, so that if it’s too slow, you can do something about it. And there’s always something you can do about it. In “5 Ways to speed up Joomla and Make Your Site Faster,” our SEO expert Matt King has provided some invaluable tips to help you speed up and optimize your Joomla site. It will make a huge difference in how much love Google gives you. Designed for Your Site You can control the colors of every element of the module, including the border color, background color, text color and “provided by” color, to make them work with your site’s design. If you prefer that your visitors won’t see the module, you can also select “special” as the access level. You’ll have to be logged in as admin on the front end to see your speed.
