Not good work


Posted on 16 April 2012

I will not use "Extremely Primitive" but Extremely not good work. For this price, example, icons is not transparent and in grey background is white. When I saw icon: report as abusive, in first time I think that is doing some speak method / because icon is really strange / also all work, color, style - is not align, something is on left, something on to, button ... chaos. Sorry, for free is expensive script.

Owner's reply: You have to make the proper adjustments in order to suit your personal Joomla template! They are millions of templates out-there and we cannot match automatically to each style, CSS and layout.

We added new specially designed product themes, which are fully customizable in order to suit any webmaster's need.

Excellent support!


Posted on 28 November 2011

I’m a big fan of Q&A and have tried a lot of solutions for my websites. I must say Janswers has impressed me in the best possible way. It’s really easy to manage and handle reports with it. It also integrates with Community Builder which is another great extension.

The support team (thanks Hash!) is very responsive and i could customize the solution to a great extent without needing to hire a developer.

I recommend this extension for anyone seeking to integrate it into a website or just wants to use it for a dedicated website.

Very good and stable


Posted on 19 October 2011

I used this for a company project to increase worker collaboration.

Employees ask questions related to certain projects we are working on and colleagues reply, for us it matters less about the top rated answers and more about the usability. Janswers is really easy to use and our employees are seeing real benefits from having a platform like this. Great product.

very nice


Posted on 18 October 2011

Really pleasant looking extension, i use it as an addition to my blog. It's useful since it builds up a community, bringing in more people. I see i also has some charging features to generate some cash, maybe i will use them when the community evolves enough.

Extremely Primitive!


Posted on 12 April 2011

This is a very primitive production of a questions/answers component, with no style formatting and almost no functionality.

Owner's reply: Based on reviews from users (not all were so harsh as yours, but any feedback helps) we greatly improved on the product and i think you can now safely say that jAnswers got much more easier to customize and to style.
Also in the new versions you can use payment gateways and payment options that allows you to monetize with ease your website.

Thank you for your feedback and for helping us to get a better product for you and our users!
