EasyDiscuss
I have to say this is my second exposure to StackIdeas and EasyBlog.

I'm a seasoned web professional. I've worked in times past as a internet technology director for a Fortune 50 corporation and I have been a product manager for SaaS and cloud services software that supported regulatory compliance needs for big banks and credit unions as well as the internet security space.

I've reviewed and purchased a lot of high end proprietary systems in my day and I have to say that everything I have seen from Stack Ideas is top notch.

I can see why they put "Easy" in front of all of their product names. EasyDiscuss is an outstanding discussion board solution. It is flexible as a forum as well as support tool.

I have used many stand alone forum software in the past but the effort to bridge those products is not worth the time when EasyDiscuss does it all AND is installed directly into Joomla.

As I mentioned in another product review of their blogging software... for any small bumps in the road that anyone may encounter StackIdeas support team is the best support I have ever seen in any Joomla related product as well as compared to even expensive proprietary software support I have had to purchase in large corporate environments.

StackIdeas has made me a big fan.

After reviewing all of the blogging software that works with Joomla I have to say all of the 5 star reviews you read about this product are valid. Any other review contrary or less than 5 stars appear to me to be either planted by competitors or are people that have very specific problems to their own use (or miss use) of the product than truly speaking to the product itself on the whole.

EasyBlog is practically flawless when it comes to integration with joomla, integration with many 3rd party tools like Jomsocial, Community builder, etc... and Integration with social media is a breeze.

Taking into account that everyones setup is different whether it involves their server setup or Joomla configuration there are sometimes small bumps in the road. THIS IS WHERE THESE GUYS REALLY SHINE. SUPPORT IS FANTASTIC!! SUPPORT CAN MAKE OR BREAK A PRODUCT AND COMPANY. STACKIDEAS HAS HIT A HOME RUN!

From my own personal experience and from what I read from other users on their forums StackIdeas goes above and beyond when it comes to supporting the small hiccups that may happen from time to time. Often troubleshooting 3rd party software or templates to ensure they work with EasyBlog and their other products.

If a blogging component is what you need for your Joomla site then look no further.
