Community Builder
I love CB. It's been a perfect tool for a number of community group sites and fansites that I've created. The website and official forums are also generally very helpful in resolving issues.

I gave it a 4/5 only because some critical updates are late in arriving or becoming available for the free version. Captcha was a pay only feature for a while. Also, I know the 2.5 version is coming later this month, but ...

Having said that, the 1.7 version does appear to be stable on 2.5, so I'm moving forward with that in my development/test environment until the official 2.5 stable version of CB is released.

Overall, CB is great extension and highly recommended. If I was doing more professional projects that create revenue streams, I would probably do one of the pay subscriptions.

Great forum extension. It's easy to setup, but has a lot of options to customize different pieces. I looked at other solutions and bridges, but this extension gets it done and is much easier to setup and manage.

The extension also integrates seamlessly with CB. Upgrading has also been a breeze. Thanks!

I've been using this extension forever and it does what it's supposed to. It's easy to use and makes site administration extremely simple from a backup and deployment standpoint. Thanks!
