When I migrated the largest forum from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 3.0, the entire process was a nightmare. BUT THIS TEAM went beyond the call of duty to make sure that the forum was migrated from an unsupported free forum in Joomla 1.5 version to the EasyDiscuss forum in Joomla 3.0. They did not give up until the process was successful. Many support teams would have.
The forum is the lifeblood of the website. I will not be using a free, unsupported forum again. The community is too valuable to risk losing posts, data and conflict. This product is MORE than worth the subscription rate in terms of peace of mind and the ability to ask a question and get an answer in a very reasonable time. Not so with the free forums.
My highest recommendation goes to this team ... they are excellent!
