Spending some time researching and a pre-sales email to AlterBrains, we found the key to all our plans; “MightySites”.
We bought it and agreed a date for the support for AlterBrains to install it for us. We were set for a session of two to three hours, and we found it hard to believe that it only took 20 min. to get everything going. We were therefore, skeptic about if it would work but our worries were proven wrong.
MightySites does make it possible to share everything we wanted and more too.
I highly recommend MightySites and I am grateful for the great support we have had even on questions, which have been beyond MightySites.
After had tested the non-commercial version we have bought the pro version which was a “laid-back installation” and the same goes for backing-up. We had some problems with the restore of our first backup, which was a 100% clone of our production site to our new development site. However, it was down to ourselves not the Akeeba backup, after Nicholas’s exceptional support we were up and running for good. We have by now done several restores of sites using Kickstart.php, which restore your site like a standard Joomla installation.
The documentation provided by Nicholas is very comprehensive. It is huge, but it takes you through everything step by step.
Someone here at the review for Akeeba Backup mentioned that Nicholas is a Joomla Guru and Teacher, I agree 100%.
Thank you for this great Joomla backup.
We have also bought the Admin Tools Pro version and I owe a review for this Joomla extension as well.
We are looking forward to continuing the co-operation with Nicholas.
For the last two years we have been using Word Press, earlier we used My Blog and we started to build a blog in K2 which we never finished because K2 requires a lot of time and tremendous customization. EasyBlog got us going within a few days. If you don’t need any special layout or customization you can have it up and running right after you have finish the installation and configured the settings.
Doing our layout and customization we had some issues which we had to address to Mark and his team and all individual issue was handled by StackIdeas in less than two hours.
Mark actually tweaked the code for us in one of the EasyBlog modules to meet our layout and customization requirement and he deliver it with an explanation of what he had done.
We are looking forward to continue the co-operation with StackIdeas.
