Ran into some early minor issues that Dylan responded to and corrected immediately. One of them was that the customized styling for my Jomsocial frontpage was a little "wonky" when the plugin was enabled. Dylan requested the information he needed (mind you all the support he provided was after normal business hours on his end.) and when I opened my email this morning - the solution was in my inbox.
Highly recommend this extension. Next step is jFusion for dual login.
Thanks again Dylan!
