Perfect. Haven't had a single glitch and I've made dozens of different posts, admin tasks, PM's and nothing has glitched.

Ease of use

Off, On. Easy checkbox everything! Stunning number of parameters.

Support

I can't begin to praise their level of help - twice I had questions, twice someone sorted me out and provided the "where to" screenshots!

Documentation

If you have some experience, it's thorough, if you need a "how to" you'd ask support.

Value for money

Something this good requires payment and some extra thanks!

I used this to: setting up a community discussion forum.
Owner's reply: Hello j-hay,

Thank you for your kind review. We are so pleased to hear that you loved EasyDiscuss and it was our pleasure to assist and resolved the issues you've encountered before. Please do not hesitate to send in a ticket to our helpdesk or forums whenever you required help from us. Cheers!

Functionality

Beyond options. A must have for Joomla. Compared to other forums, the functionalities go on and on.

Ease of use

Read the documentation and the ease of use is by far the best. Documentation is updated

Support

Support is suburb, a 10+++ rating. Issues? - No questions asked they fix it in seconds.

Documentation

Documentation is detailed, explained, illustrations, pictures and other tweaks included

Value for money

Valued at the cost. I've found nothing better.

Ease of use

Very user friendly with multiple tooltips and works straight after install on any template.

Support

Stackideas support is fast, effective at resolving issues, creative in approach and responsive to feedback, overall top quality in every way

Documentation

The Online documentation could be better but the wealth of tooltips and detailed support forum answers mean I do not need it.

Value for money

Tremendous value (as are all Stackideas products) for a small investment with the next major upgrade due to match EB5 and EasySocial 1.4

I used this to: My community website on Joomla 3.4.4. I only use the latest versions of what I consider to be quality extensions and EasyDiscuss is definitely in that category, working in perfect harmony out of the box with the other products on my website.
Owner's reply: Hi Richard,

Just perfect


Posted on 11 October 2014

I use Easydiscuss for my website along with community builder ; the integration is perfect between the 2 extensions. Easydiscuss can be highly personalized to fit your needs (css + back office). Support was able to answer any of my questions even for template customization and code implementation. Special thanks to Arlex support ;)

Owner's reply: Hi Juan,

Thank you for the review. I'm pretty sure Arlex is pleased to know that your issues you encountered were resolved. Don't hesitate to send in a ticket to our helpdesk or forums whenever you required help from us. :)



The product speaks for itself; a solid, intuitive, aesthetically appealing platform for group discussions (and more).



What is often difficult to ascertain before purchase is the level of support you'll receive afterwards. Well... let me tell you, these guys and gals know their stuff and are lighting fast on replying to your queries.



When you ask a beginner question in most forums you'll get a snarky comment telling you to read this or that (which is usually best practice if you want to learn), but the StackIdeas team are patient and polite.

Owner's reply: Hi Philip,

Thank you for the review. I'm really glad that you're loving EasyDiscuss. It is our pleasure to assist you with the issues you encountered. Please don't hesitate to send in a ticket to our helpdesk or forums whenever you required help from us. :)

I was finding a right component for 4 months. And finaly, I have found one. Easy Discuss is full of options, therefore it is almost imposible that it does not suits to your needs. Their support team is extremely quick - in forums and in ticket system also. Just one small problem - there is lack of information in docs for this component. But! on the other side, when you write about your problem with settings, they answer almost immediately and give you sophysticated answer. Thumbs up and 5 stars are not enought!
