Posted on 17 March 2017
Functionality

A very complex and powerful tool. Yes, it does take some learning!

Ease of use

It takes time to learn exactly how to make it work well for you, but it's worth it.

Support

I had real issues getting it to install after a time. I gave up in frustration but Mark reached out and did troubleshooting via teamviewer

Documentation

Good

Value for money

A+

I used this to: After a good start I had all sorts of install problems and gave up. Mark did troubleshooting in the middle of his night to get to the bottom of it. Seemed to be partly my issue and partly theirs. He was so, so helpful. A customer won back! Thanks you Mark.

Functionality

Everything works right out of the box and it does exactly what I need it to do.

Ease of use

Simple install friendly admin interface. New users may need sometime to familiarize themselves of the settings as the product is very robust

Support

This is where stackideas crushes the competition. Their support team is always able to quickly help me with any issues which I may run into.

Documentation

Stackideas has a slick documentation section for all of their products based on your expertise level

Value for money

$79/yr for 1 extension may seem like an awesome deal but you can bundle every extension for only $249/yr with full support which is amazing

I used this to: My social gaming community with other 5000 members.

Functionality

It has tonnes of options and the best I found it useful is the autopost, and to social media with RSS feeds etc. SEO friendly tagging.

Ease of use

You don't need to be a programmer to know how to use this blog. The backend admin is one of the best and everything is self explanatory.

Support

Support is top notch with their ticketing system. You don't need it that regularly, but they are always there to help.

Documentation

As mentioned, every function is self explanatory, and with a detailed documentation just help further.

Value for money

I have spent on other components but nothing comes close to EasyBlog. Multiple themes, blog functionality with social built in. Worth it!


Functionality

I switched to Easy Blog because it had Multi Blogger Functions. It has an insane amount of features. For eg I am a big fan of templates.

Ease of use

If you just want to slap together a quick & dirty post maybe this is overkill. If you like making more polished stuff then it is perfect.

Support

Best of all is their support. They even have a trade mark name for it “Sensible Support” This last claim is an understatement 100000000000%.

Documentation

Not perfect but still the best documentation I have ever seen. If you have a problem their support will walk you through it & explain stuff.

Value for money

The best investment of my life period.

I used this to: To help me spread my dreams in a slick and innovative way. I am a happy Stackideas Camper!

Ease of use

Very intuitive to create new articles. And adding images is easy.

Documentation
Value for money

It is the only paid extension I use, but it is worth every penny.

I used this to: My own personal web site. I blog about twice a week and have about 700 unique visitors a month.

Thank you for your review. We are so glad that you're loving our product. Please do not hesitate to send in a ticket to our helpdesk or forums whenever you required help from us. :)

Functionality

Tons of features - meets professional demands.

Ease of use

Since the software hardly lack any feature, one needs some time to get through it. Neverless the UI is clean and logicaly structured.

Support

Top support! Fast, friendly and professional. Also they stick to their promises.

Value for money

If you need a professional blog-extension, you really get a lot for (quite a lot) money!

I used this to: Don't use it anymore, since we only need very little features with focus on mobile blogging.
But Stackideas definitely is recommendable.
Owner's reply: Hey Matthias,

Thank you so much for those kind words. We are so glad to hear that your requests were attended accordingly. Please don't hesitate to send in a ticket to our helpdesk or forums whenever you required help from us. :)
