I sure wish that I had done that in the beginning. There is no issue at all with JS integration. This is a fully featured component that is very user friendly and provides true WYSIWYG editing with your own choice of editor. It has a native comment system, but can be seamlessly integrated with other comment systems such as jComments (for sitewide commenting function). Want to couple to Twitter, Buzz, or Facebook? It's built in. How about social bookmarking features? Already there--take your pick.
The included templates are very attractive out of the box and with a little CSS tweaking can match your site theme perfectly. Works with one blogger--or hundreds each having their own blog head. Support is second to none--Sam even wrote a plugin for me that swept jComment title and comment heads into the activity stream! In 5 years of using J! applications, I cannot think of another app dev group that is this "on the ball" with any level of support.
The only slight downside I can find is that image handling could be improved--and I understand that this is on the project list for future releases. Overall this is the one to go with instead of wasting valuable site development time trying to get freebie or poorly coded solutions to work properly. Three cheers for EasyBlog!
Thank you very much on your feedbacks! Yes, we are working on a proper image handling in the future versions of EasyBlog!
Although the free version is pretty full featured, I like the Pro package, as it lets me schedule a cron job for the backup--and then automatically port it over to my Amazon AWS S3 cloud. The filtering on non-changing files is pretty granular, and makes for quick essential daily backups of user content something that you will not have to worry about.
Great solution, and very low overhead on your server when running.
It has a temp directory clean option, will purge old sessions, and can call a repair and optimize directive for your MySQL database. A few more neat features--but something totally useful for ongoing site admin. I have installed and use this on all of my sites. Great job!
