I had to hack the component a little to customize the layout and remove some of the bells and whistles. The code is extremely clear and well-structured and is clearly made by real professionals. For most of the hacks I just had to make a copy of an existing theme and modify it.
This is one of the best Joomla components I've dealt with.
Thank you! In EasyBlog 2.0, it will also come with more configuration options! :)
