EasyDiscuss has many many options but is also fairly simple and straightforward to setup. It has a very pleasing interface on the frontend and I liked it from the moment I started using it.
The most notable part of the extension is the support. They are excellent and respond lightning fast. The really nice thing is they also respond and you know they read your question thoroughly.
Highly recommended for a discussion group or simple forum. I know I will probably buy more subscriptions for other clients.
I also may try their other extensions.
As of version 2.0 you can just click in the control panel to make changes instead of opening up the category for each one. Unbelievably easy now. Brilliant!
This will save huge amounts of time. Bravo
I was using JBlibrary plugin but that was causing conflicts with templates,etc.
The support is excellent as well.
Highly recommended for a simple solution that works perfect.
Occasionally the number of likes doesn't show up until you click the like button. I haven't done any troubleshooting so it may have nothing to do with the module. Probably some cache issue.
It was the only thing I could find like this and it works well and is easy to customize.
The most impressive thing is the support. I had a problem that was preventing a interactive PDF from working and the developer was immediately working on fixing it and wasn't giving up until it was fixed.
Highly recommended and perfect for offering files up on your site. Also worth more than the asking price.
I used to have to install 2 or 3 things to change or remove the generator tag, give the homepage a custom title and add the site name with custom separator at the end of each page.
Then install a Google Analytics plugin for tracking.
This has some really cool features on top of that. The redirect to non www is something I had to do manually. Right on!
There is a bunch of site security settings too, I haven't needed yet. Right click disable is interesting.
Plus more. Oh yeah, it's like dirt cheep too. Again, finally all these things in one plugin!!
Thanks for being a Joomla programmer.
As for support, it is like other have said, excellent. I was working on a weekend in the US and it was night time in Cyprus and I was still getting support! I had a couple questions, because I didn't understand, not because of the component and it was resolved quickly.
My question was with MySQLi, which is recommended when preforming the migration with SP Update. Some websites that had posts on using this said to install the new J1.6/7 using MySQLi which I never heard of. Long story short it is a server side component and if available can simply be turned on in the Global Config b4 migration. I had to call my hosting company to see if it was on. There is some way to check it yourself too.
Overall I will be using this for all sites. Thanks for creating something that works.
"We generally recommend that you place the Google Analytics tracking code immediately before the closing tag of your pages in order to avoid any issues with page loading delays for visitors with slow connection speeds. However, there are several situations where it might make more sense for you to install the code in the head:"
The reason to put it in the head are only for 3 custom situations.
So I have had great luck with this and it's dead simple to use.
I really was having problems and must have sent 2 dozen emails, they kept at it with me until it was working just like I wanted.
Good value and great service. I haven't tried all the plugins yet, but the sortable table is very cool. With a little customization it was very much what I set out to find initially.
The support is very strong. I asked a pre-sale question and got a reply so fast I thought it was a auto responder. I needed a couple questions answered and everything was extremely prompt and thorough.
For the features, support and price you will not be disappointed!
