I have tried all the blog solutions for Joomla. I have spent so many hours trying to get the other, sub-par blog components to work right.
I should have just got Easyblog from the start. It is so polished, so feature rich, and so easy to style.
This component could be a standalone blog CMS and would be right up there with the best blog systems on the market today. Don't waste time trying the other blog components for Joomla - just get this one.
These guys have a way of taking a type of application (in this case a CCK) and creating a version that is extremely simple, reliable, and easy to work with.
Although there are more powerful CCK's out there, for me, Zoo is almost always perfect for my needs.
I REALLY appreciate how streamlined it is in the backend. Learning my way around it was very quick.
The templating system was also extremely easy to pick up.
The developer was thoughtful enough to put in some very handy options in the back end, such as choosing whether or not to reset the rss file upon each load, and adding your logo in the bottom right corner.
I was quite impressed that it worked so well out of the box. I used the id from a facebook group instead of a facebook page, but it still worked flawlessly. You can also use the id from a facebook app.
For the project I used this on, which is a community based site linked closely to a large facebook group, this module is perfect.
A big thank you to the developer for such a polished and useful app, especially considering that there are so few facebook connect apps for Joomla at the moment.
